5.0 out of 5 stars We needed you most 11 Sep 2007
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Imagine if the Flaming Lips and the Arcade Fire fused into one epic, joyously pessimistic indie band from Denmark.

That's more or less the sound of the Kissaway Trail's first album, which mingles epic, uplifting rock tunes with some glorious psychedelica and dark lyrics. It's a musical cacophony of offbeat joy -- a wildly colourful stretch of addictive indie-rock.

"HEY! If you're listening, you'll hear/The world's inner decay/Forever turned out to be too long!" a solemn chorus intones over a blast of organ, which dissolves into interludes of bubbles and church bells. It is a bit repetitive, since the entire song is basically those three lines... but the tapestry of soaring organ and synth almost makes up for it.

That turns out to be only the warmup to "Smother + Evil = Hurt" -- a rich indie-rocker, bursting into orchestral tsunamis, swells of synth and violin, and a harmonized marching band sound near the end, as if the Kissaway Trail is marching out of the song. "Walls climbed us because we became stones/With rampant branches molded identical/Let it remain so it remain so..."

But the songs that follow, while not as full-bodied, are still great -- stumbling Spanish guitar-pop, swirling acoustic balladry, joyously rollicking rockers, shimmering synth-edged tunes, dark psych-powerpop, and delicate storms of keyboard and strummy guitar. It closes with the ringing, eerie "Bleeding Hearts."

Frankly, all it takes is the second song to hook a listener -- it's just THAT sweeping, rich and bittersweet. It's a bit of a letdown when it's over, until you realize that the following songs are just as rich and sometimes even catchy.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Kissaway Trail - The Kissaway Trail 13 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
On first listen you would be forgiven for thinking that the self-titled debut by Danish quintet, The Kissaway Trail, is yet another attempt to jump on the Arcade Fire bandwagon. The catchy melodies and huge sounding string arrangements mixed with mandolins and banjos are hugely reminiscent of the Arcade Fires finest moments. Look a little deeper though, and what is revealed is an album of hidden depths, crammed with joyous hope and youthful optimism, yet with a darker undertone hidden away at the songs core. Opening track Forever Turned Out To Be Too Long is a perfect example of this "Hey! If you're listening you'll hear / The Worlds inner decay", a refrain repeated over lush orchestral backing, church organ and a childlike choir adding the "la la la's".

Within the band we find two singer songwriters in Thomas Fagerlund and Søren Corneliussen who both share vocal duties throughout. The difference in their style of writing is what makes the album so listenable from start to finish. Fagerlund writes with a childlike innocence, in La La Song "Let's run away, today / The stars, the stars will guide us" he tempts the listener into throwing away all their troubles and strife by jetting off to Los Angeles and in album highlight Smother + Evil = Hurt the band are reminiscent of The Polyphonic Spree at their most triumphant. The Corneliossen penned songs offer a contrast with post rock textures and a darker mood with the songs Soul Assasins ("Sometimes I'm afraid to live / Its like life is a little tired of me) and Sometimes I'm Always In Black ("When winter comes, don't wash away my tears"), the instrumental backing turns the lyrical content of these tracks from being down in the mouth to totally euphoric and uplifting.
