Album Review

Reviewed 2010-09-16
as reviewed by mr. esq.

beatlesque/psyche/power pop.(think:80's psyche revival=got it.)
the beatles influ. is harrison based (g.h.=way underrated.)
elements are def. beatles&psych&power pop. 90's shoe.
there's also a tad of krautrock in it's more mellowy momes'.
RIYL: beatles, ride, barret floyd, shoes, &someone(s) i'm forgetting. i'm not forgetting: this thing is beautiful.

SUGGESTIONS: *1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 11.

*1. real sweet trip! psyche atmos' -into beatles pop. this is
just beautiful. play now.
2. backwards shit goin' on. dreamy -'back&forth.' barret floyd.
*3. BEST TRACK;loopy begin. gets goin' circa 1990 shoegaze (ride)=britty. this is a fucking beaut, the kinda beaut that answers a call to answer a call to action.
(and yes: it is a beautiful day.) sudeen end.
*4. shoes! need shoes! (this really moves.) shooooes!
*5. ALMOST BEST TRACK: in/out psyche out with snaring. now it's gargling. this is really nice. dreeeemmmmy. dreeeeemmmmmy. dreeeemmm-
6. oh those anzi's and their infatuation w/ syd!
*7. jam: a nice sorbet, if you will.
*8. sounds like large springs at first. back to power pop proper. a total beaut. just the earnest sweetness. (shoes gone psych.)
9. lo-fi open. bluesy metallic. and back to dreamy. and back to bluesy metallic. (floyd/blue cheer/cream/vanilla fudge) it's... almost a buried track/another song:synthy endpiece. could act as standalone. really cool&short drone, last min.
10. drugged&dreaming. half expect them to break into 'arnold lane.' it's cool. beach boy harmonies kick in halfway. chillslike.
sudden end. like a teeny tiny atom bomb.
*11. fuck yes! anthemic! (shoes! shoooes!
'shoes? shooooes!', said al bundy before he collapsed.)
