4.0 out of 5 stars Big Warm Hugs and Golden Dreams 6 Mar 2010
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
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 .

5.0 out of 5 stars My new favourite sound.. 29 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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....
