Format: Audio CD
Essentially the handiwork of New Zealand-based musician/producer
Ryan McPhun The Ruby Suns new album delivers a big burst of warmth
and sunshine at just the right time. (We've all had enough of the
Long Cold Winter haven't we?!)

His perfectly pleasant 2007 release 'Sea Lion', despite being a little
rough around the edges, showed evidence of a musical imagination
with the capacity to absorb ideas from many genres and cultures.
Give 'Oh, Mojave' and 'Tane Mahuta' a listen for immediate elucidation.
It is the lovely rolling harmonies on final track'Morning Sun', however,
which seem to point the way forward. A taste of better things to come.

'Fight Softly' is a collection of ten compositions which slowly
and gently seep into our consciousness without any need to wave
placards or use insistent barging elbows to gain our attention.
It is a grown-up affair.

Mr McPhun's repeated use of luminous vocal harmonies is the glue
which holds this gentle but always-engaging music together. They
cast a warm, golden sheen over his beguiling musical landscapes.

Opening track 'Sun Lake Rinsed' is a perfect example of how
to make a beautiful song out of the very simplest materials.
A economically effective synth and percussion framework supports
Mr McPhun's confident falsetto, soaring like a lone bird over
the surface of the glowing supporting harmonies.

'Mingus and Pike' has a stronger rhythmic presence but this is
never allowed to overpower the subtely rolling melodic material.
The half-heard voices in the small break at its heart are
an enigmatic punctuation mark; an unanswered
question mark left hanging in the air .

Astonishing piece of work....Puts Animal Collective into perspective....A smorgasborg of pop harmonies, themes, and invention. Maybe the album that Todd Rundgren hasn't made for 30 years. Now enjoying the previous two albums...Get onto it....

Fun, ambient listen 5 Aug. 2010
By Alan Hogan - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I heard the song "Closet Astrologer" (''''') in a SubPop sampler and thought, I need to try the rest of the album! I was not disappointed. It's a very ambient, cohesive listen of muffled vocals, drumkit beats, and wishful synths. It makes good background music for the office.

It's true this album is quite different from previous Ruby Suns albums.

Regardless, I consider it well worth the listen.

the future! 12 Oct. 2010
By damien - Published on
Format: Audio CD
with this album ruby suns are performing a new kind of extremely creative and enjoyable music as neon indian, picture plane, yeasayer, anoraak, wahed out, el guinsho and so on. With closet astrologer, they probably (and this is only my opinion) build the best song of the year.

for me and for all the good time associated with fighting softlty: album of the year!
Swing and a miss! ( I blame the sun in my eyes) 8 Mar. 2012
By Dan L. Manes - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I'd more so call it an "ok" album versus the two star breakdown of "i don't like it"(so i'm saying more like 2 and a half stars) . My particular issue on this album was i picked up this cd because i had been made aware this band had a certain psychedelic sound to their music. The music held within is fine and dandy *if* you enjoy electronic blips and blops. One of the reviewers used the term ambient and i think that hits the tone right on the head.

If you like that electronic ambient sort of sound, this might be a 4 to 5 star album to you. I was hoping for a nice melodic splash-down and i think it fails at that. I could see this album growing on people as the sounds held within are musically done well, it just was less of the kind of music i tend to enjoy a lot.

**If you enjoy the newer Radiohead, i hear some of that sound in this** (san guitars)

Odd pop music. Singable songs. Eccentric. The sounds are like looking at a very colourful 3D computer screen. Closet Astrologer(?) is a great piece. Dreamy crazy melodies and sparkling arrangement.

Very different from Sea Lion but good in its own way 30 Jan. 2013
By justin PL - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This album is a big departure from Sea Lion, as it is much more focused, electronic and sample oriented compared to the world music style approach of its predecessor. I think the lead guy made this album on his own as the previous members left. It is really a totally different sound yet the song writing is still catchy and consistently interesting. Cranberry is a particular stand out. As far as "chillwave" and related electronic indie genres go I found this album to be consistently listenable from start to finish. I like Sea Lion more but this album still gets routine play from me.
