a total & complete mind blower, from start to end!!! 1 Nov. 2007

Format: Audio CD
whoa!!!...this is a 'must have' cd IF you like/love or listen to any of the following bands on a regular (or even semi-regular) basis (& DO MAKE SURE you read the names of EACH & EVERY artist/band make absolutely sure that you understand what this release can be put up against w/o any trouble: black rebel motorcycle club, the warlocks, sun dial, monster magnet (at their MOST psych stuff, like the early eps/lps, instead of their later stuff that leaned more towards 'metal'), brian jonestown massacre, loop, cream (their material where clapton plays blistering guitar), jimi hendrix experience, the hair & skin trading co. (in particular, their last full-length & last 2 singles/eps), singapore sling, the morning after girls (at their MOST psyched-out, trippy, fuzz-epics.....not the really mellow/dreamy stuff they do), spacemen 3, spiritualized (it'd take forever to try & explain why i have them added to this list.....but, i'm sure that, after reading the names of the artists/bands that i've just typed up before them, you can pretty much so figure out on you own exactly WHY i did!!!), swervedriver, the heads, the jesus & mary chain, the velvet underground (first 2 lps, in particular...their 2nd), jps experience (specifically, the 'bleeding star' full-length), my bloody valentine, farflung, magic dirt (esp. their earliest releases...most def. their self-titled debut), iron butterfly (their first 3 lps), the asteroid #4 (their debut full-length release), opal (listed here b'cuz of the many songs they did on the 'happy nightmare baby' lp, releasing a ton of heavy wah-wah, fuzz, & tripped-out guitar work w/several of the songs pretty much so being NOTHING BUT music for when you're reeeeeally high!!!), medicine (think the releases the put out, both singles/eps as well as albums, up to the lp 'her highness'), the soundtrack of our lives (whenever they have their super-sonic, psychedelic, groovin' sound goin'!!!), ride, hawkwind (from things off of their first 4 lps but, ONLY, b'cuz of this lp's rockers that just fly up up & away, whenever the guitarist gets his foot on/near the effect pedals, causing a song to break down into a literal 'sound riot', where amps are turned all the way up to 10), outrageous cherry (MOST DEFINITELY & W/O QUESTION!!!!!), the apples in stereo (if they were put on the same live bill as THIS band, it would be an absolutely PERFECT pairing-off of the two!!!), smashing orange (in particular, their s/t release & the lp 'above ming gardens'), kinski, the flaming lips (the earlier their releases, the better & reason(s) WHY i ALSO put them onto this list), the green pajamas, drop city (the psych/trippy stuff they do/have done &, as well as, the stuff they have done that is literally, 100% PURE, power pop, w/the emphasis on 'power'!!!), main (specifically, their release, 'motion pool'), chapterhouse (the first 4-track ep), cato salsa experience, starflyer 59 (their loudest, catchy, 'pop' songs.....&, even some of their quieter moments, as well),.....

this comparison list, i'm sure, could be 2 or 3x the size that it is...BUTTT, if ANY/ALL of these bands/artists listed are the bands that you like/love to listen to/play in very, verrrry heavy rotation, if you don't already own a copy of this, GET ONE.....LIKE NOW.....LIKE YESTERDAY!!!...YES, IT'S 'THAT' GOOD!!!...

i do not think this would disappoint fans of any of the bands just listed (where some are listed w/o anything (i.e. comment) after their names &, then, some that are listed w/reference points, given after their names (i.e. specific lps, singles/eps, OR like where i put things like 'the earlier, the better', etc.).....i just remembered that i didnt put the lilys on here (def. whenever they went total power pop w/a psych edge), adorable, black tambourine, el goodo, the black angels, the house of love (certain picks from different albums, as well as, singles/eps that have great vocal harmonies going along with music they could EASILY be buried inside of but, b'cuz of fantastic production/engineering of them, they don't take over the song(s) i'm referring to...instead, it's as if the vocals are just 'another' instrument, mixing PERFECTLY with the rest of the song(s)/music), landing.....if you are extremely famialiar w/the just listed artists/bands, as in you're on a 'first-name' basis w/them & you play stuff by them on a massively, regular basis, THIS ALBUM IS ONE NOT TO BE MISSED!!!!!

& if you are a daydreamer/daysleeper, actually 'preferring' to sleep during the daylight hours & spending the majority of the hours in which you are awake, in a room playing things on a stereo, one thing/band/release after the next, &...despite the volume that you have your amp turned up to, you STILL find yourself, as if it weighs a massive weight, hanging (& with) your head down, your chin resting on your chest, your eyes closed, barely any light in the room where you are &, as you sit (or lay) there, saliva slides freely out of your mouth & ends up in places on your shirt OR on your pants depending on the way that you're sitting.....or bettter yet, if you are laying on a couch or a floor, just WHERE EXACTLY it ends up after it comes out of the mouth and rolls slowly off of your lips...), holding onto pillows, & in an almost, coma-like state of mind, where literally nothing can get you out of it, butttttt, you really don't want feel waaaay too good the way that you are!!!.....if this makes sense to you, you know what i'm talking about and i don't have to elaborate any doesn't get any more so narcotic!!!

music for late night when YOU ARE THE ONLY SOUL AWAKE (pretty much so) & you allow yourself to get so into the music & sound(s) that are surrounding you, it's THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS!!!

put it on, turn it up, and get ready for a beautiful,
mind-blowing, auditory experience!!!

absolutely captivating!!!

Darker My Love is a band that has been hanging in the LA music ghetto for a few years. Now may be their time. There is a lot of excitement around this record. I can tell you that all reports are good so far. This is a band that has recently played with The Fall and The Lyres. But they have transcended any influences. It's mainly psychedelic rock. But then we have the amazing hard-hitting rock of "What's A Mans Paris." The excitement continues with "Helium Heels" and "Post Mortem, Post Boredom." We haven't heard some fresh chord changes in a decade. The revolution has happened. Darker My Love is at the forefront of a new exuberant scene. This will be in mind as they take the stage at Sunset Junction in late August. This street festival is always a milemarker and taste of good things of the past and to come. One day we will all be dead. Darker My Love is one of the great things about being alive at this time.

First-Rate Psychedelia 26 Mar. 2008
By Jay Murphy - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you dig the Brian Jonestown Massacre, the Dandy Warhols, My Bloody Valentine, the Jesus & Mary Chain, the Morning After Girls and/or the Velvet Underground, you'll love this CD. Strong melodies, nice harmonies and lush sonics make this album a must-have for fans of old and new psychedelia. Recommended without reservations. Peace.
Psychedelic Geography 23 Oct. 2010
By Radio Silence - Published on
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
I first listened to this album after hearing the band live and purchasing "2," and in that phase, I saw the debut as an accurate summary of the darker fuzz tones from the tradition of The Jesus and Mary Chain. While the record was not as textured as "2," and the band certainly was more stripped down playing as a quartet (before adding Will on the organ/clavi), the listener certainly can hear the dense-but-textured approach to songwriting that would dominate much of "2."

Upon hearing "Alive as you are," the band's most recent album, I began to view the debut differently. While many people were (and are) ambivalent about the band's latest effort, and found the record to either be a left turn or a nostalgic replication of 60s psychedelia, I thought that the new record explored some of the softer spaces of the debut record.

The shock of the new record, I believe, was a stunning direct sound, which is not similar to the cavernous and dark production of the debut. However, the bright arpeggios, intricate rhythm parts, and rhythmic comping of the new album expand upon themes that listeners can find on the back end of the debut.

In retrospect, "2" was a record that followed "Claws and Paws," "Helium Heels," and "What's a Man's Paris?;" "Alive as You Are" lives between "People" and "I feel fine."

If we consider psychedelic music in its most basic definition to be "mind-manifesting" music, we might consider psychedelic albums to paint different spaces in which we can locate, develop, and reflect upon our own mind or soul. In that regard, "Darker My Love" is a psychedelic album of the finest order; it is open-ended, it has many turns, and it presents different terrains within which one can further develop psychedelic sounds.

And I think that's rather fitting given Darker My Love's career thus far, as a band that is touring the many fields of psychedelia.
It Drones, It's Noisy, and It's Fun 16 Jun. 2009
By Corey Turner - Published on
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
Twelve tracks, of those twelve you may only find a few stands out the first listen. Give it some time, although a noisy album there is some separation in sound. The first track "Opening" sets its course with a vague classic rock drumbeat; slowly the static clinger guitar builds up friction. My ears deceive me, I was under the belief the 90's never passed, the song was so strongly reminiscent of an Alice In Chains song.

"What's A Man's Paris" (second track) reminds me of Queens of The Stone Age's heavy lazy hard hitters. It morphs into a DIY punk desensitized vocal manor, blurring the mics capability, and showing off their rapid ability to adapt. "Helium Heels" warps its way in offering some more modernistic psychedelic. "Helium Heels" has a guitar lick you'd expect from a death metal band, then confusingly goes to an undistorted progressive segment. During this time the humbuckers on the guitar show age like a camera with oils dulling its lens.

"Post Mortem, Post boredom" all the tracks are noisy this one so far is no exception, except it is probably the most competent to be played in a dark room with a candle flickering light (the others would probably be more fit for a strobe light or a nice laser jittering images on the floor). It's dark, it absorbs light, and it's good. Now you can blow out the candle and watch the smoke do its dance, "Wake" is like the walk out of the foggy woods. "Wake" is an instrumental, the guitar twangs of hot needles, and it is the least noisy track and is the most atmospheric (in my opinion of course).

The second half of the album lacks decisiveness, now that we've herd this group get heated up we expect more! That's actually good, they pulled us in, but they may not tie all of us down just yet. That's why I recommend a few listens if possible; it grows (people hate hearing me say `go listen again' I don't blame em).

Rough production isn't so noticeable when mixed with rough sounds. I own the vinyl copy of this album, and even with the surface noise and a few blots of dust it covers it nicely, no really. For those looking into vinyl version here's a few details. Gatefold, double LP, not sure if it's 180-gram feels heavy, standard ole dust sleeves inside.

Listen to a few tracks under the Amazon sample section, really not a bad album. For a debut it could have been worse. Overall a fun distorted album.
