5.0 out of 5 stars rare indie masterpiece 4 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
this is easily one of my twenty favorite records of all time.
'different stars' is a collection of songs and sounds that reach into your guts and splay out your melancholy for further examination. the effect is a haunting, familiar emptiness that reminds you that hurting isn't always a bad thing. as effective as the cure's "disintegration" for long nighttime drives in the rain.
anna-lynne williams is the last of the ambitious wallflowers. her chilling, sharp, angelic vocals evoke sarah maclachlan or aimee man. she'll drag your inner teenager to the surface and remind you that you haven't changed THAT much. lyrically, she achieves the kind of shameless vulnerability to which most of us will rarely admit, even to ourselves: "my envy of all you own / i want to be a possession you dust and won't let go / gentlest touch and sweetest sound / something you'll run back in for / when the house burns down." if the gothic girl in you had a crush on in high school wrote yearning, desperate songs about you, this is how you'd want them to sound.
matt brown's aquatic, searing guitars can turn from lazy to frantic in less than a measure. it's stunning how much emotional clarity he achieves through his mastery of instrument and effects. he'll get compared to the edge and tim reynolds, but he definitely has something unique to contribute to guitardom.
trinidad sanchez's bass playing is restrained, creative, and highly satisfying. in the same vein, jamie williams' drumming is tight and sparse; but when he employs those toms, it makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up.
trespassers william may never be radio stars, but they deserve to be - their sophomore offering already has the marks of a masterpiece. buy it. it could end up being part of the soundtrack of your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Avoiding Angst 29 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
An unpretentious masterpiece that bypasses the usual unrequited-love-angst so as to provide the listener with something pure and beautiful without pumping them full of misery. The vocal dexterity of the female lead is the kind of thing you want to listen to to remind you that Canadian music doesn't have to involve screaming. If you see perfection in simplicity, Different Stars is a hybrid. Buy this album, before everybody else realises that Trespassers William exist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting, Beautiful, perfect for blue moods... 3 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album perfects what Mazzy Star started by being more emotionaly direct, but equally delicate and affecting. Sonically similar to contemporaries Azure Ray, but less girl-ish and feminine. The songwriting here, though mostly focused on heartbreak and loss, is well crafted and subtle, in the spirit of Leonard Cohen even. The bands backing reminds me of Red House Painters, Coldplay or even Sigur Ros at moments. Highly reccomened for fans of the old 4AD style or the newer breed of sensitve bands coming out.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow 25 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
I recently stumbled across this band by accident, its been a very long time since i have heard anything quite like them, and with such consitency. They somehow manage to get to that plane of music that the cocteau twins were able to, and the band dont even sound like they are trying that hard at all....I have read that they are currently in the studio recording and we may even get to see them here in the uk.
