5.0 out of 5 stars Still excellent after all this time 11 Oct 2010
By R
Format:Audio CD
4 years after release this still sounds great. Signal Sparks and Between the Noise are the initial stars of the CD but other tracks just grow until it is just a succession of high points (well, give or take How are you gonna live wthout me or Little Pieces). A fourth full-length CD of pretty much excellent music must be a good enough epitaph for any band. Listen to this and work your way back through their output.

4.0 out of 5 stars "The guitars are back" says David Line.... 13 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
A collapsed lung forced David Line to tone down the vocals on Seafood's last album 'As The Cry Flows' and pushed drummer/singer Caroline Banks into a more prominent role, such that their sound represented quite a departure for the band. The quieter dynamics and soft male/female vocal harmonies meant tracks such as 'I dreamt we Ruled the Sun' sounded like Slowcore supremos Low or Ida; something that I liked very much.

But as Line belts out "Don't forget you are living" on the brlliant new single and second track 'Signal Sparks', it is immediately obvious that both lungs are now present and correct and thus Seafood are back to their strident best. The guitars are back too: 'Between the Noise Pt 2' sounds like it was lifted from the more raucous moments of first album Surviving the Quiet and the trend continues on 'Little Pieces' which features heavily distorted vocals and guitar with even a bit of a guitar solo thrown in at the end.

Seafood have not eschewed their quiet influences altogether though, and this new album seems to strike a neat balance between the two contrasting styles that they have previously adopted. The delicate 'Awkward Ghost' is a lovely little acoustic lament, and laid-back album closer 'How you Gonna Live Without Me' features Banks on sole vocal duty. Perhaps however, standout track 'Tide and Times' demonstrates the combination of styles best, starting out gently with a little picked melody and a wispy falsetto before the guitars build and build to a great crescendo. It sounds almost apocalyptic, indeed "Bathe me in flames" goes the refrain; you could be forgiven for thinking you were listening to the fantastic Aerogramme or even Hope of the States.

Title track 'Paper Crown King' is a completely different proposition.

i have to admit, i am generally annoyed by people who review products before they are out, but in this instance i ahve good reason to give a glowing preview of their 4th full length.

having just seen them play at the oxford zodiac, i was delighted to find hear that just about half the set was new material. David Line may have seen the typical drunken leadman when he loudly slurred 'our new album's out soon, its brilliant' but there was much to support his claims. Although not announcing the names of any of the new songs, the overall sound was just as the website says 'the guitars are back'. The sharp loud-quiet sonics of 'when do we start fighting' seem to ahve most influnce here as the pure volume of their set suggested a move away from the mainly folk influnces of the disappointing 'as the crow flies'. A relief for many, this return to their sonic youth influnced extravagence did not stopped them from plying some dynamic, hook laden tunes, compelte with deafining guitar crunches to finish. infact the only disappointment of the night was caroline banisters lack of vocal input, something hopefully not apprent in this album.

shopuld be a corker, despite the last album

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent follow up 13 Sep 2006
By Stinkface - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
well i waited aaaaaaaages for this to come out. i have been following seafood's career for the last 6 years and this album is awesome, arguably their best yet. heavier than past releases and very nicely produced, the sound layers are lush and thick. 'last outpost' is an excellent rendition of the older version found on the japanese 'as the cry flows'. very catchy tunes, my faves being: i will talk, between the noise, and little peices. my only criticism would be that caroline only sings on one songs, and there are no duets with david, which is a shame.
