My musical tastes do not usually run to low-key lounge singers sat at a piano, lamenting but I was humbled by MYBY. It is both simply played and intricatly penned genius. It does take a while to let the songs catch your interest(it did for me, anyway) but it is well worth it. Despite their sombre content and pace, every song is a little piece of slightly off-kilter heaven. It plays as sad rather than depressing and uplifting as opposed to melancholy.
As a listener of, mainly, rock and alternative music, I found this recording surprisingly accessible. It has the slow, sharp-edged feel of Nirvava ballads. And if you know New End Original and have heard 'Leper', you can see the similarities between it and some of the tracks on this album.
Great for after an exhausting day.
