Biography

“When I write a song,” says Mikel Jollett, co-founder and creative driver of the Californian five-piece The Airborne Toxic Event, “I’m trying to get down an emotion, a scene or a setting. Everything important that happens after that happens between the music and the listener; the rest of it is all mythology. The collective interpretation of it is way more important than ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice album 11 Feb 2009
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I read a fairly unflattering review of this, but decided to give it a go and I'm glad I did.
They have been compared to Arcade Fire, but I find this album a bit more upbeat than them.
If I had to compare with anyone, I think it would be Razorlight, though a little heavier.
Generally, the album is pretty consistent throughout, but Sometime Around Midnight is the best IMO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album since... 30 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
Having listened to this band on YouTube for weeks, I finally ordered the album, which has been on non-stop since it dropped through the letterbox this morning. It's a wonderful mix of driving rock rhythms and plangent strings, with a lead singer who wrings every possible ounce of power out of some excellent lyrics (`she loved the Lord the way an apostate loves psalms...'). It's the best album I've heard since... since... can't remember, it's that long ago. All the tracks are excellent - there's not one I don't like.

Unbelievably, I first heard them on Radio 4. Do not laugh: it was a broadcast from a festival in Suffolk. I was instantly smitten. It's right up there with Elvis Costello and The Pretenders and other all-time greats. It has exactly that same sense of desperate longing you hear in Alice Cooper's 'Poison'. The only pity is that my teenage daughter thinks that because her mother listens to it, it's, like, just not...

It's just finished. I have to go and turn it on again.
