Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Acoustic troubadours, Custom Blue, own everything required to replicate the early 70s: think the 12 string strum of The Eagles, or the mellow folktales of Neil Young. Marry these to an ever-shifting backdrop of gentle electronica and you have that rare thing in All Follow Everyone: the chill-out album that taps both rock and dance markets. Downbeat, introspective, and at times just plain depressing, this is a collection of lovelorn tales made good by emotive vocals, beautifully arranged strings and a wealth of stolen influences. Psychedelic rock is no bad thing, but plundering guitar sounds made famous by other bands is never a good move. Luckily their songs aren't bad (if a little whimsical) faring better when given a subtle backdrop of gentle breakbeats and eerie samples. If you're keen on Floyd-like ambience, the tenderness of Coldplay, or Led Zeppelin distilled into chilled-out sunset vignettes, this is worth sitting down for. --Paul Tierney

I first heard the track "So Low" on BBC London last June courtesy of Ross Allen and immediately fell in love with it. Beautifully produced by Spacek it has a wonderful sound - a downbeat rhythm to die for,driving bass guitar, great vocals and just stands head and shoulders above anything else out there at the moment. Thumbs up also for using a pedal steel guitar in "Structure" to great effect which also features a terrific string section. Difficult to categorise but always a joy. I know nothing about this band but can't wait to find out more about them and see which direction they choose to take. Talent and musical ideas abound so it should be worth the wait. A worthy addition to any collection that includes the likes of Radiohead, Spacek, even Kruder & Dorfmeister

I Have been waiting for this Cd to come out for about a year, and it was definately worth the wait!! Every track is truely inspirational. Their clever use of acoustic instruments and electronic noises makes every song completely diferent. You can feel the message and soul in every song when you listen to it for the first time. As if that wasn't enough the string arrangements by Caroline Daniel are out of this world - completely exceptional! 'Structure' alone shows the amount feeling and talent that 'Custom Blue' have. I would personally reccommend this album to any one with a soul. If you have one you'll love it! It's Perfect for driving in the car, sitting at home with a bottle of wine, and after seeing their recent gig at 'Cargo' amazing live. I see this band becoming the next big thing - so all i can say is 'All Follow Everyone'!!

Stunning Debut!... 10 Jun. 2002
By Ian Creamer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've heard this album described as a supreme piece of eerie psychedelic soul and I have to say it's a pretty apt description. What this sentence doesn't tell you is that this London group have produced an amazing debut album of 12 of the most brilliantly crafted songs you're likely to hear on any debut album. The arrangements are startling and this group seems to show no limit or constraints with their own ambition. A case in point would be track 4 "Structure". It drifts along in the coolest of trip-hop meets C/W sort of guitar sounds.Then smooth keyboards kick in and we have the beginnings of a great track, until nearly 3 minutes in, we get this incredible orchestral break, full of swirling string and woodwind sound before some 80 seconds later and the cool sounds of acoustic guitar meets the sound of steel guitar re-emerge. Before you know it they launch into the delicious soft multi-layered harmonies of the barely whispered vocals of the chorus. As soon as I heard this track you could say I was hooked. Yet the amazing thing is this isn't my favourite track. There seems to be a track to suit all sorts of moods and venues from the upbeat "So Long Summer" with it's almost 60's feel good vibe to the post club, chilled out exhaustion of "So Low". Here's a track that is just so beautifully produced and brings the best out of any good stereo system. It sort of reminds me of the late night smoky bar sounds of Cousteau. Great gentle guitar riffs and wha-wha guitar sounds mixed in with some ultra cool keyboard sounds you'd be more likely to hear on a Morcheeba album. Some other tracks have a more sinister darker sound like "Ionia" which uses trip hop beats with gentler guitar sounds and some great strings also. The vocals on much of this album are delivered in a hushed sort of style, which suits the mood of the tracks so perfectly. Yet on track ten "Breathe" the style changes as they begin to sound like Coldplay and the back and forth sounds of the main vocalist interacting with the backing harmonies make this a truly astounding track. The startling variety on this album is one of the many reasons why I liked it so much. Yes maybe many of the tracks may be a bit down tempo but each one stands out entirely with it's style and delivery from the next one and each track is a near masterpiece. It's just a remarkably accomplished debut!

Best Electro-Acoustic Band Around! 17 Mar. 2005
By T Boz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Afet hearing the wave of electro-acoustic bands that flooded the British scene a few years ago, like Doves, ad-n, Sigur Ros, even some Coldplay songs, I thought the idea was exhausted. Then I heard Custom Blue. I got into them through one of their producers, Mark Pritchard, and was blown away by the quality of the songwriting. I have never heard a better chillout rock record in my life. The falsetto vocals present on this album send you into a relaxing daze, as do the superbly orchestrated melodies. They go from an ambient guitar riff, to full-on strings, break to a melodic keyboard line, then back for more choruses until the air swirls with energy. I haven't heard such masterful techniques since The Beatles. Overall, I cannot recommend this album enough, well worth the trouble to track it down on import, plus the band is working on a follow up 'All Will Be Well' due sometime in 2005. I can't wait!
Samsung S390G - TracFone 17 Jan. 2013

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Although the phone does have a lot of features and Tracfone does give triple minutes, the one big drawback of this phone is the navigation pad. Most phones have a toggle ring around the center "OK" button that you use to navigate through the menus. This product has a pickup that you rub your finger across and causes you to slow down to select correctly. You have to , at times, re-select to get correct.
Unique sound 7 Feb. 2006

This is a fantastic album that needs to be experienced. The beats from the drummer David Ballinger are awesome!
