5.0 out of 5 stars Built to last 17 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a truly great album from yet another band who wow the critics but are overlooked by the public at large. Opening track Going Against Your Mind is a stunner, an eight and a half minute epic based on a two chord riff that never gets boring and manages the staggering feat of turning from Pavement covering Grandaddy into MBV and back again with apparent ease. On first listen it's difficult to see where the record can go from there, but it heads of in all sorts of directions, encompassing some great indie rock, shoegaze and even reggae, without ever losing its genuine sense of pop sensibility. There are some wonderful bittersweet melodies in here and more hooks than a cloakroom. It's difficult to compare their sound to other bands because they create a noise all of their own, but if you're looking for reference points think about combining the pop nous of Pavement with the scuzz of Dino Jr and the soundscapes of the Flaming Lips/Mercury Rev and you'll be somewhere near. It's one of those records that seems perfectly suited to whatever mood you're in when you put it on, and after a couple of spins through you'll be wondering how you ever lived without it. Brilliant.

Great band, even though I never caught on to them in the 90s. CD is well worth adding to any CD collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dynamics restored 18 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
The previous album (Ancient Melodies...) was a bit of a disappointment after the amazing Keep It Like A Secret, so my hopes were moderate anticipating this album.

I was wrong! Martsch has developed the sound and the band, ending up in a more dynamic album with a kick start of a first track that definitely got me interested in BTS again.

Lovely and full of variation!

3.0 out of 5 stars I needed this 6 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
God I needed this. I have been dining out on Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Sonic Youth, Calexico, Broken Social Scene,Wilco, Flaming Lips. But nothing fills the void like a BTS album. This has that deep dreamy/wasted/inspired rock-out feel I crave, an enormous but intense landscape. I won't even bother comparing this to the other albums. This one puts me in mind of Pink Floyd though. Martsch's voice is like another instrument. Lyrics are as strange and engaging as ever if you want to tune in to them. But for me the music does all the communicating. Beyond words.

4.0 out of 5 stars BTS emerge as the wise, elderly jam band ***1/2 1 Aug 2006
By JWK - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I'm not a BTS fanatic. I've never followed them around the country, looked up anything about Doug Martsch's personal life on the internet, or any other weird, obsessive behavior concerning the band. I simply really like their music. I own the albums between "Perfect From Now On" (their best, imho) and this one. All four are fantastic, and honestly any of them could be your favorite. "Perfect" is lengthy indie/prog rock. "Keep it Like a Secret" is more loud indie poppish. "Ancient Melodies" is pop, but with dry production for a cool, low-fi feel. And finally, "You in Reverse" is an all out jam album.

BTS stays fairly true to many of their past formulas; up-tempo, obvious opening track (Going Against Your Mind), Radio-friendly ballad at about track 3 (Liar), killer lead single elsewhere (Conventional Wisdom), and a mellow closer (The Wait). In this regard, it's very similar to "Ancient Melodies." The biggest change is a focus on riffs. Yes, some of those riffs end up sounding like Neil Young, but remember their version of "Cortez, The Killer" on the live album? The band has an abvious affinity for Young, and a lot of their typical sound is indebted to him, so no big surprise. In the end, a lot of the sound of the album is pretty similar. If you can't get into it by track five, there's little hope you'll like the rest. But for those of us who enjoy the album, it's excellent music.

Overall: 7 out of 10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Built to Spill prove that you can get older and better and wiser 15 April 2006
By Aquarius Records - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Forget anything you have maybe heard or read about this record. If it doesn't say how great, how supercharged, or how monumental it is, then whoever wrote it or said it doesn't know what the hell they're talking about! 5 years in the making and Doug Martsch and crew are back and better then ever. Starting with an 8-minute plus fist in the air opus that makes your heart start racing and your whole body bolt wide awake.

While so many of their indie rock contemporaries have either broken up, burnt out, or become static recorders of nostalgic nothingness, Built to Spill prove that you can get older and better and wiser. Listening to this record over and over and over as I have, I've realized how wise Doug Marstch actually is about life and living. This is someone as in touch with his present moment as he was when he was 21. That's something that seems to be so lacking in most rock music. It's not rare for people to be really insightful and interesting and living in the moment when they are 21 or 22 and just coming of age but all so often as they get older they seem so out of touch and disconnected with what growing and learning and changing is all about. Martsch seems to have embraced all of that so well and this record is like the masterpiece of that maturity. Not the kind of "maturity" I talk about when people start making softer, safer records. This is the real kind of maturity. A group growing into themselves so perfectly. Guitars twisting and twirling and ringing so true. Melodies that build and bloom and take such nice form. While so many of the bands they helped influence (Modest Mouse, Death Cab For Cutie, etc.) have gone on to reach greater commercial success, you get the feeling that they couldn't care less. It doesn't seem too far fetched to start thinking about Martsch as his generation's Neil Young.

Timeless, iconoclastic, always stretching and exploring, even at the risk of failure. Martsch is someone who with their words and guitar makes you feel like you are being given the kind of jangly indie rock hug that you never want to end. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars The next great BTS album, finding middle ground between Perfect From Now On and Keep It Like a Secret 11 April 2006
By D. R. Locker - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This really is an excellent BTS album, and brings them out of a relative slump (Ancient Melodies was not their best). It has a nice blend of the spacious jamming and creativity of Perfect From Now On, while maintaining the melodic sensibility and cohesiveness of Keep It Like a Secret.

If you are new to BTS, then Keep It Like a Secret is still probably better to start with because it is slightly more accessible, but You in Reverse doesn't give up much ground on that front either.

The single, "Goin' Against Your Mind", is a triumphantly great track, which Doug and the Boys have been playing live for about 1 1/2 years, and it great to hear how it has been polished up and more layers added in the studio version--although their live shows are an indie tour de force.

Also, you can hear the influence of Doug's solo project, Now You Know, etching out its place in tracks like "Liar" and "The Wait" (which is much improved over the version they were playing live over the last year or so).

All the songs are winners, but in particular, I also enjoy "Traces", "Wherever You Go", and "Conventional Wisdom."

Built to Spill already has a lot of tour dates lined up to show off this album, so check out their web site and see if they will be near you; they bring magic to the stage.

4.0 out of 5 stars definately worth owning 9 Nov 2006
By D. Cleklinski - Published on
Format:Audio CD
i can understand why some fans are a bit disappointed. but this is mostly due to 5 years of anticipation. i am a huge music junkie. this year alone i have gotten around 100 new albums by various alternative/modern rock bands. and this album still ranks in the top ten. the guitar work is amazing. amongst all the dribble and pop out there, this is worth the buy. besides, if this album was like the last one in 2001, people would be complaining that the band didn't change in 5 years - so damned if you do, damned if you don't.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Summer 2006 Must Have!! 20 April 2006
By C. Sherlock - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This is really good stuff! I've always been a casual BTS fan. I respect them, and enjoy re-visiting 'There's Nothing Wrong With Love' or 'Perfect From Now On' on occasion. Two very different works, yet the best that Martsch and co. have created thus far. This effort changes that equation. As in, this surpasses both of those albums, and that's impressive indeed!

The trademark expansive, spiraling Built To Spill guitar sound is still there, and in spades. Particularly in the second half of the record, so older fans of the band should be pleased. This is SUPERB, front to back. There's not a weak song among the ten offerings on 'You in Reverse'. Apparently some hardcore BTS fans have issues with the first half of the record, and honestly, that's just stupid.

I listen to this and I hear a terrific Built To Spill album, with touches of Crazy Horse, Meat Puppets, and Television. Not a bad mix, eh? If the solo break to "Conventional Wisdom" isn't a nod to 'Marquee Moon", well then, I've completely lost my mind...

For some time now, Doug Martsch has been considered a guitar god by some. I always sort-of understood this sentiment, but then again, sort-of didn't. This is the GREAT album I always suspected Built To Spill had in them. This is really top notch, and should be heard...
