A little more taut and angular than their previous lps, this is a grand slide into the subtle beauty of Swell. No other band have clatter and harmony like them; they've captured a sound that is theirs, and theirs alone. From "Swell", to "...Well", to "41", to "Too Many Days..." and on, they've walked a unique track, well off the beaten path. With sublime melding of acoustic and electric guitar, this is just one of the great lost albums from a band who've undeservedly almost been forgotten in the rush to find the next, and the next, big thing. Not for them the tired, formulaic "quiet, loud, quiet" template, Swell swim in atmospherics, letting each song ride its own wave. The more straightforward tracks on here, like "Throw The Wine", still have a stoned drift that carries the listener through both the blackest night and the sunniest afternoon; the choice is yours. David Freel's lyrics mine an odd, disconnected Bukowski/Burroughs landscape, tales of shiftless days and drugged, drunken evenings, with only your heart as companion. All these stories and sounds lead you finally to "Everyday Sunshine" which is, perhaps, the best song ever committed to tape: A burgeoning, swelling, gently driving thing of absolute beauty, describing frozen moments from a car crash, flowing on a current of sound...And then it stops, leaving you wanting more, Press repeat and listen to the whole record again. Keep it rolling through your mind, let it swamp you with its warmth. Then go find all their other records. Swell, are...well...swell.

Ok, the first review of this was incredibly concise and to the point AND correct... the second, was like "err, the first 2 songs are good then it slows down" ~ well yeah, it does, why shouldn't it. Hell, in reference to the first review (I saw) this is an undiscovered CLASSIC... Just imagine if Spiritualized did a collaboration with the mellower moments of Sebadoh, you're kinda there, 'cept with more interesting lyrics and (maybe) a little more sense of fun/playfulness to the songs.

If you've heard this then you already should own it, if you haven't then damn well get it, it'll be one of those when you come home all tanked-up and full of drunken bravado and willfulness. This is immensely enjoyable and lyrically workmanlike, or matter of fact ~ in a sense...

"I but the finest advice" ~ go figure...

Oh yeah, there's a song about the singers dog called "Bridgette, you love me" that makes me ludicrously happy, yet wanting to cry at the same time... Hey, if you've lived... "You know this is the best line, don't wait for some gladness to close your eyes"...

Kick back with a bottle of red wine and a smoke, this is the best album you could ever put on at 7am when you've been up all night.

if your after the classic swell guitar, and basement drum sound, then their previous album 41 is by far their best work. This album has a much cleaner sharper sound, the first two tracks are outstanding then it slows down towards the end.
