Intelligent alternative rock, 7 Aug. 2001
The songs on The Taller You Are The Shorter You Get are packed with power chords, moving melodies, punching drums and extremely well-written lyrics which deal with the human condition. Edwards has a engaging voice a little like Michael Stipe but manages to avoid the sentimentality of REM, and tells it like it is. With songs as good as these, My Dad Is Dead should have been as big as Nirvana. They were robbed. Highly recommended.
