4.0 out of 5 stars So much depth, so much to listen to! 10 July 2008
By Robbie Swale VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a truly impressive first offering from Get Well Soon. It is as eclectic a set of songs as I can remember buying - there are so many influences it's difficult to list them. Perhaps the best description is to say that the songs vary along the scale between Spinto Band (Nice and Nicely Done) and Radiohead. Quite a long scale, I'm sure you'll agree, but then this is an album of variety.

The arrangements are massive: with most of the instruments you can imagine - and some you may not be able to - creating a really full sound which is also, at times, stripped right down to the interesting and flexible voice of Konstantin Gropper. And Gropper's voice is used expertly throughout, at times multi-tracked, at times strained and loud, at times soft and silky. Perhaps the most exciting thing about this album for me is that despite the fact that I've had it in my CD player for several weeks, I still feel it growing on me.

The depth of the music is massive, and will keep you going for weeks and weeks (and, I imagine, years and years). Perhaps my only problem here, is that it's difficult to feel any emotional impact from the songs. But that may come. It will certainly take me a long time to get a handle on all the details here, but it is definitely something I am looking forward to doing!

4.0 out of 5 stars BIG, atmospheric and a great title! 25 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When I first listened to this the other day, it was whilst I was on the tube and looking back that was a mistake. The intimate yet bombastic tones do not come out well when you are sardined in a loud click-clacking train for 40 minutes. So, I had a low opinion of this set immediately afterwards.

However, on its second play in the tranquility of my humble home I have changed my mind. This is a BIG album with lush arrangements: Mexican horns, Argentinian accordians, a celeste (I think) and cellos all appear across this album. It's like a 70s Phil Spector (think Try Some, Buy Some) meets Sparklehorse and Mercury Rev down in a small world music club near you. And just when that sounds atmospheric, they then cover Underworld's club anthem 'Born Slippy' in the same manner.

However, that's the arrangement and production but what about the songs I hear you say? It's a very old Gothic set of songs - lot of references in the lyrics to nature in the sense of hunting, the seaside, forests, fire. This contrasts the modernity of 'Born Slippy', 'Tick Tack...' and 'People Magazine Front Cover'. Perhaps that's why the prelude is a sweet soothing lullabied preview of what to expect and the coda starts with an silly answer machine message telling us to wake up. I'll leave that for others to work out these contrasts and what they mean but I liked the mix of both!

For me, this was a surprising luxurious treat. Too many goodies on offer to pick out one so I'll just mention 'Endless Dream', 'Witches..' and 'If This Hat Is Missing..' as the three best tracks of a brilliant set and recommend that you seek this one out. Especially, if you love BIG sounds!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous, eclectic, modern pop music! 24 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is an excellent album of modern, eclectic pop music from Konstantin Gropper's band "Get Well Soon". It is made up of the best of the songs that he has written over the past three years and, as a result, makes for a very strong debut album.

Perhaps the most noticeable thing about the music is the variety of styles and instrumentation on offer! The song construction itself is conventional, so that the mystique and wonder comes from the mix of styles and instrumentation. There is plenty of melody throughout the album such that, despite the tempo slowing a tad too much about two-thirds of the way through, the songs are quite catchy, particularly once you've heard them a few times.

The lyrics are great fun too - wonderful observations on modern life, and whilst written in an unusual style, fit the music well.

So, "Rest Now Weary Head You Will..." is a pop album which draws its influences from a number of sources: I can hear French traditional sounds, Mexican brass, "traditional" rock guitar etc. I have seen the music described as indie, folk and country! I can certainly see the connections to indie, and perhaps folk, not so sure about country - but these are probably the amongst the influences that the band have used, and some are more noticeable than others when it comes to their own final sound.

For me, the band is most successful when it is playing up-tempo or mixing the tempo up within a song. There is a section of the album from "We are safe inside..." to "Witches! Witches!..." where the tempo is just too consistently slow for my taste and i don't enjoy these four songs as much as the others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't be fooled by the folk label 3 July 2008
By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This was categorised as a folk music album, which it most definitely is not. I would say that it is more of an indie pop type thing, although the pop bit is on the mournful side, more reminiscent of the Eels or Radiohead at their most normal.

This is thoughtful music, music that might well appeal to those who like to listen and listen and listen again to their music, finding meaning in everything. It reminded me of stuff I would have loved when I was about 19, but which I now no longer have the time to become completely obsessed by.

The songs are well put together and the album is coherent in terms of sound and themes. In fact at times too coherent as I did find after track six that my attention started to wander a little, and that one song began to blend slightly with the others. Each time I listened to an individual track I liked it, but I preferred listening to them this way rather than in one go.

His voice is rather reminiscent of E from the Eels, which is no bad thing. Altogether a pleasant enough album, and the packaging was lovely. I wish I had discovered him ten years ago when I probably would have been raving over this.
