5.0 out of 5 stars Transcendent Acoustic Pop 10 Aug 2009
By Ian Shine VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Beach House is an American duo that are often described as 'Dream Pop'. Their lulling vocals do certainly draw comparison with the likes of The Cocteau Twins and, more recently, Grouper, while instrumentally they are nearer to Joanna Newsom, Nick Drake, elements of Broadcast and even Big Star. The third track on the album, `Gila', even sounds a little like the Beatles' quieter moments.
Acoustic singer-songwriter style records can often feel a little tedious, but Beach House have managed to find a place somewhere between the rich vein of melodious, harmonic, wandering vocals and the land of traditional pop songs...and they have mined it to perfection.
The album sounds like it could have been made in the late 60s, yet at the same time it sounds fresh. There's plenty of variety in here, from the melancholic drone of `Turtle Island' to Spaceman 3 infused lilts of `All the Years'.
Fans of any of the bands mentioned above will find something to treasure in this record, along with fans of the Beach Boys, Animal Collective and Stereolab. Beach House bring elements of all these bands together but produce something truly unique and original. A record worth listening to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just buy it! 4 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
Just buy everything that Beach house create....I don't know what to first mention....creativity, imagination, vocals, an out of earth sound. It deffinitely is something beyond the alternative sphere. I own only this album because is the cheapest in amazon but I plan to buy Teen dream too. I can't imagine one more autumn goes by without hearing Walk in the park. But the review is for this album, so just listen to Heart of chambers and you'll know what I mean.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is your heart still mine for sale? 25 Mar 2008
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The name of Beach House might imply a certain kind of pop -- sunny, frothy, sort of a Beach Boys vibe.

If so, that name is very deceptive, because their music is none of the above. Hailing from Baltimore, Beach House's second album "Devotion" is more like sleeping in a haunted, jewelled music box -- all ghostly singing, lushly sparkling pop instrumentation and sensually dreamy melodies.

"Wedding Bell" spins itself a stately, rippling organ'n'grimy riffs framework, with Victoria Legrand's pretty, eerie voice singing distantly, "You're ringing the only wedding bell/and we're swimming the seas we know so well... I tried to stay in line in our bed/in our heads/Oh, but your wish is my command..." It's very catchy in a neo-Victorian shoegazer way, although much catchier than anything that follows.

But things get far eerier in "You Came to Me," a shimmering ghostly pop ballad punctuated by sweeps of satiny keyboard and timpani. That style carries over into the lilting, swirling sound of "Gila," ruled by a truly exquisite organ melody. And not many singers could sing the name of a lizard and actually sound serious.

And those songs set the tone for much of the album -- ethereal organ laments, shimmering little pop tunes strung with tambourine and swirling guitar, sparkling melodies with spacey carnival synth, tinkly soaring ballads, and so forth. But it ends as catchily -- if more alluringly -- as it started, with the warm, wobbling "Home Again." It sounds exactly as the title would imply.

If I had to describe the particular sound of Beach House, I'd have to say it sounds like an American Nico... fronting the musical lovechild of Mazzy Star and Goldfrapp's latest.

I became aware of this band thro their record label putting out composite festival CDs, but have also seen them play live twice at festivals and am quite impressed with their sound and their songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars bypasses ordinary consciousness 22 Dec 2010
By Desk
Format:Audio CD
I could not hum a single tune from this record, or quote one line of the lyrics: it bypasses ordinary consciousness and goes straight to the level of dreams. Melodic, soft but distinctive.
