4.0 out of 5 stars They're Getting There 13 Oct 2012
By Keith M TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This second album release from Norwegian 'supergroup' The Megaphonic Thrift follows in the wake of 2011's Decay Decoy and continues to demonstrate great promise (whilst, for me, not quite amounting to an unadulterated success). This rather unadventurously named follow-up is a stylistically more diverse effort than the debut release and this added variation serves to work in the album's favour. Having said this, all the same (apparent) influences audible on Decay Decoy are still here, such as the oft-cited Sonic Youth, but also the likes of Joy Division, Pavement, British Sea Power and (even) Superchunk (a list which closely equates to some of my all-time favourite bands). In addition, though, the band's inclusion of their lighter side, in songs such as I Wanted You To Know and the delightfully airy Spaced Out, bring to mind the more delicate moments from the likes of The Velvet Underground or Yo La Tengo.

There are, in fact, very few (if any) songs here that could be remotely considered duff, and the album kicks off with the (typically) atonal and boisterous Tune Your Mind, followed by the even more impressive Raising Flags. This latter song (currently one of my Thrift favourites) demonstrates this album's notable sonic improvement on Decay Decoy, with Linn Frokedal's bass and Njal Clementsen's guitar more obviously prominent, whilst Fredrick Vogsborg is altogether more animated and dextrous on his drum-kit. In addition, the band are also seen to be more frequently employing some delightful harmony vocals, such as behind the haunting rhythms of Fire Walk With Everyone and during the brilliant interlude in the Joy Division-like Broken Glass/Yellow Fingers.

4.0 out of 5 stars eclectic, diverse, Sonic Youth influenced indie pop/rock 13 Nov 2012
By Charlie Quaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
2nd album from Norway--darkly echoing drone guitar notes, minor key chord structures, and
swirling sonic turbulence give way to the subtle exuberance of angelic vocal harmonies. It's not
that you can't dance to it, it's just that your moves would be like macabre puppet-twist love-splat-
flops. The music feels like haunted pop that's filtered through a distortion device, then shaken
with delay, reverb, and a dreamy dose of indie rock `n' roll. It's up, down, soft, hard, strange,
pretty, alien, appealingly unpredictable--but accessible. Members have played in Casiokids,
Low Frequency In Stereo, Young Dreams, Stereo 21. Reminiscent of Sonic Youth, Bailterspace,
Pixies, Blonde Redhead. A tender hit of embraceable indie pop dissonance for rocking the day
away. Nice.
4.0 out of 5 stars Solid 4 May 2012

Very solid pop album, it's not a rocker by any stretch of the imagination but is a fun listen.

Enjoy
