4.0 out of 5 stars I dream of togetherness 15 May 2007
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Au Revoir Simone make synthpop. Not the usual synthpop, but bewitching little pop tunes full of sun and woods.

And the Brooklyn pop band is in good form in their full-length debut "The Bird of Music," mingling peppy electropop and pretty little synthy ballads. It could use a few darker edges, but their shimmery music is a charming experience -- think Eisley on a lazy summer evening.

It opens with the sound of wind chimes, and a gentle piano melody. "A dream of togetherness/Turned into a brighter mess/A faint sign my spoken best," is murmured over the gentle ballad. "So I was the lucky one/Reading letters, not writing them/Taking pictures of anyone/I know..."

That tone totally changes with the next song -- a peppy synth pop tune that doesn't really live up to the title: "Play me a sad song because /That's what I want to hear/I want you to make me cry/I want to remember the places that we left/Lost to the mists of time."

With those two as an intro, the remaining songs pretty much straddle between them -- organ ballads, meandering fuzzy electropop, tightly-wound dance pop, languid little pop tunes, and a few that defy labels -- the ominously soaring "Violent Yet Flammable World," and the eerie finale "The Way To There."

Three young women playing lots of sparkly, shimmery synth... well, it doesn't sound like the stuff of great pop music. And even after their beautiful debut EP, I was a bit worried about whether their music would last the stretch over an entire full-length album.

Well, fortunately those worries were needless -- even though there's really only keyboard, they know how to mix it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars beauty and shadow 2 Oct 2007
By Dr. Robert A. Josey VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is not just a great album, it's a classic. I bought it in HMV because I thought the cover and song titles looked 'mysterious'. And three young women from Arizona playing keyboards and singing? Didn't know what to expect.
The songs are lovingly crafted; the music and vocals beautiful; the whole album something very special. I bought their first album soon afterwards - and it is just as good. Just sweeps you away.
They must have a cult following I'm sure - but they deserve huge success.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifull 11 July 2008
Format:Audio CD
OK imagine if The Be Good Tanyas and Supernature era Goldfrapp swapped instruments, this is what the TBGT's might end up with. Gorgeous 3-girl harmonies, melodic pop songs with the occasional edge coupled with stripped down, elegent analaogue synth backing.

Worth a look if you like Goldfrapp/Metric/Ladytron/St Etienne and er, the Be Good Tanyas!
