5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Debut Album from Mr Nwaar 24 Feb 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album is an absoloute joy! I heard a track played on late night Radio 2 and thought 'WOW' - what IS this!? I bought the album on the strength of that single track and was not disappointed with any of the remaining tracks. Yes, it's slightly quirky, but the tunes are so infectiously catchy that I can't stop playing it! Jim's style? Difficult to pinpoint but a definite retro feel with nods to the Mamas and the Papas and an obvious comparison to Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys - the latter on account of Jim's glorious harmonies. There's even an instrumental track that could have been lifted from 'Pet Sounds'. The most amazing thing is that Jim has recorded this material as a one man band (although he's touring with some friends to help out with the harmonies and other instruments!). I urge you to give it a listen as I don't know anyone who hasn't heard it and said 'Wow, who is this guy?' and 'can I have a copy?'. Buy your own!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jim Noir - superstar! 15 Feb 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is amazing! I bought it last week and haven't stopped listening to it since; every track is a gem. What does it sound like? Try to imagine the Beach Boys of the Pet Sounds era being covered by the French duo Air playing in their front room and you might begin to get close. The lyrics are very British though, with playful lines like "If you don't give my football back I'm gonna get my dad on you." You'll be hard pushed to find a better record to soundtrack the summer this year - charming from beginning to end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Psychedelic Surf Boards 9 Dec 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
“This debut album comes like a literal breath of fresh air across the sometimes predictable British music scene. It features a number of instantly memorable tunes and melodies, which I'm sure we will be hearing on TV adverts over the next 18 months. 'My Patch', 'Tower of Love' and 'Eanie Meanie' are all catchy happy tunes which stay in the memory long after the album has finished. Clearly influenced by Beach Boys harmonies this guy clearly loves his music from all types of eras and genres and he's sure to be around for some time to come. If you fancy an uplifting, cheerful and unusual 40 minutes then buy this album!”

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious Kitsch 15 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
This Jim Noir offering certainly didn't disappoint me - i was hooked after the 'Computer Song' EP.
However it is all very much in the same style - harking back to 60's flowery kitsch pop, mixed in with electronica to give it a modern edge. The genius part are the lyrics which are witty, funny and perceptive. I don't always listen to lyrics properly, but for this, i think it adds to your enjoyment.
Tower of Love is a great album - i defy you to not start grinning ear to ear after you have listened to it. Pure sunshine, with a twist of English humour to keep it balanced!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Psychedelic Pop Masterpiece 21 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
Psychedelic troubadour Jim Noir has been enchanting listeners with his beguiling West-Coast nursery rhymes for some time now, having released a number of strictly limited-edition 7" EPs over the past couple of years.
His debut album of schizophrenic psyche-folk doesn't disappoint, somehow conjuring images of endless Californinan summers while remaining as quintessentially English as tea and cakes at 11. Opener "My Patch" is a breezy chamber-pop masterpiece with sun-kissed Beach Boys harmonies, while title track "Tower Of Love" sounds like a long-lost Pet Sounds instrumental beamed in from space.
The lo-fi aesthetic of "A Quiet Man" invites favourable comparisons with early Super Furry Animals, and "Turbulent Weather" is laced with Brian Wilson-esque melodic invention and sublime one-man harmonies.
The fragile beauty of each perfectly-crafted retro-pop nugget on this album confirms Jim Noir's role as master magician of a psychedelic folk scene of his own making. Expect big things.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tower of Lovely 25 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
The comparisons to Brian Wilson are not at all misplaced, but for a more up to date comparison (not that you can ever write off the God like genius of Brian Wilson) Super Furry Animals are very much in evidence and in influence on this fantastic album. If you like latter day SFA (think Phantom Power)you'll like this. Definitely.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tower of love in more ways than one 26 Dec 2005
By russell clarke TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Re-calling such delights as early Laptop, Robyn Hitchcock, XTC off shot The Dukes Of Stratosphear and most commonly signposted, The Beach Boys Jim Noir is quite literally a one man band as he plays every instrument on this, his debut album. A singular vision Tower Of Love is with out doubt the warmest wittiest most consistently enjoyable pop album of 2005.This album would cheer up a lamp post whose bulb had gone out.
In terms of musical influences and the overall ambience of the album you would probably guess that Jim Noir hailed from the leafy suburbs of of some affluent Southern town but his Manc accent and distinctly Northern humour, obsessions and phraseology give away his Manchester roots. Listening to "Eanie Meany" where his protagonist won't "Give his football back" and is threatened with "I'm gonna get my dad on yer" it's the sort of childhood experience I would write about if I had any musical talent, That and dog on the park , playing kiss cuddle or torture and apple nicking. "Eanie Meany 2" sound like Air rather perversely
Playful self decapitating humour is prevalent throughout this album. Set to breezy sunny harmonies, skittering keyboard melodies and plangent plucked acoustic guitar he sings an ode to his computer and the many frustrations it puts him through. "Every time I try to make a silly little song/ My efforts are all wasted because machinery goes wrong." "My Patch", a former single , is the most aggressive song on the album with it's skipping beat but it's threat to "Bring you down" is loaded with about as much menace as "C.I.T.V" at three thirty on a Tuesday. "Key of C" has a brilliant perambulating keyboard written presumably in the key of C "Because it's easier to play it".
