*** RESIDENT ALBUM OF THE YEAR - 2006 ***
an understated masterpiece - summery, uplifting & glorious ; introspective, dark & gloomy ; deceptively simple in its intricacies (that reveal themselves more & more with every listen).
the boston foursome make quite a departure from their astonishing album 'horn of plenty' but have seriously pulled it off. think of classic americana, the arrangement's of classic musicals, brian wilson's imaginative collaborator van dyke parks, love's acid-baked californian psychedelia - beautiful harmonies, baroque, oceanic instrumentation & subtle electronics. a sonic sun kissed journey of woozy guitars, brushed drums, woodwinds, strings, hazy electronics, layered vocals & sweeping harmonies - this album will warm the hearts of the most jaded music fan.
