5.0 out of 5 stars This Girl: 'Well Good' 22 Jan 2004
By JRO
Format:Audio CD
Having purchased this album shortly after it came out, the album and I have had a long time for any 'growing' that needed to take place before it allowed me to fully enjoy her. But this time was hardly needed. This Girl are one of the most original and exciting post-hardcore bands around, with a live show like no other. This album encapsulates everything that the band stand for- making good music. It's certainly not inaccessible- at least not to anyone that enjoys this style of music. Buy it now!

2.0 out of 5 stars The tune's in there somewhere. Or is it? 24 Jun 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm a big fan of a lot of post-hardcore but I don't know what to make of this album. The band are clearly musically talented and have a lot of ideas, but somehow fail to produce a product thats actually pleasant to listen to (which is important). They seem to dispense entirely with the need for straightforward melody in a way that surpasses Glassjaw at their more obscure moments and even ATDI. Far be it from me to criticise the band, especially as I haven't seen them live, but I often get the feeling people are pretending to like them because they are so inaccessible. Maybe it'll get better after a couple of listens but to be honest I hated this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lifts. Curves and Seperates 26 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album couldn't be more pefect if thisGIRL spent the next 100 years on it.
Every track on this album is its own adventure, there's high, there's lows, there's random distortion that make you want to throw a chair, and mellow parts that make you want to take a walk in the park.
The thing with thisGIRL is you never know what your going to get next, its what makes it such an inspirational album, the bass flows like there is no tommorow and stands out rather than just following the guitar. The drums really are something else, Ryan knows his stuff, and the guitar is so diverse im surpirsed thisGIRL aren't Selling Out Arena tours. The vocals are soft then screamo, then soft again, and the lyrics equally as good.
If you are reading this review thinking that this album is TOO random and has no flow you are mistaken, its one of the best structered albums I own. The opening track "Three Minute Spanish Film" is a masterpiece, covering most of thisGIRL's genres.
"Hello Rave Party, Goodbye Carpet" has no lyrics its just a chilled out instrumental track that reminds you of summer.
The album closes with the track "Los" which has 5 odd minutes of Guitar Feedback and then goes in to some of the heaviest stuff thisGIRL have done, the perfect way to end a perfect album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album! 22 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This band will be huge soon!
Including ballad-esqe songs which lead up to a huge surge of agression, this album is 9 songs of emotional hardcore at its best.
If you like bands like Glassjaw and Hundred Reasons, then Short Sturt To The Brassy Front would make a perfect addition to your collection.
