With the opening track "You and the Father", it is already apparent that the Bros have adopted a somewhat newer, upbeat sound with out abandoning the slow tempos that they love. The follow up is "On the Line" which all I can say about it is that the chorus is very un-Radar Bros, (it is a good song, don't worry.) By the way, the introduction to "You're Still Evil" will scare the ... out of you. It sounds like the introduction to the Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want", only with demon children singing it instead. You'll see what I mean.
Otherwise the album has the Radar Bros consistency, soothingness, and saturation of 3/3 and 3/4 measures. The albums biggest highlight goes to Mountains. First off, I think this band couldn't be any more sick of being compared to early Pink Floyd, but something about this track reminds me of Breathe in the Air from Dark Side of the Moon, particularly the piano interludes. The song excels from its rather eery sound, the out-of-time repeated lyrics, the 7/4 (7/8?) time measure, and the wonderfully placed whistling of frontman Jim Putnam.
The Radar Bros are definately not for everyone. If you're not sure whether or not to check the band out, give the EP a shot before delving into the LPs. If you are a fan of Radar Bros and loved the Singing Hatchet, by all means, why are you wasting your time reading this? Buy it already!
buy this one before getting anyof their other albums...this one is the best.
