5.0 out of 5 stars sunday morning tinged folk pop, ala beach boys/nick drake, 19 Aug 2008
This review is from: Fleet Foxes (Audio CD)
This album is by far one of the best things to come out in 2008. i hadnt heard a great deal by this band but i was drawn to the depth and consideration which had went inot the album artwork.
Its hard to pin point a particular artist to which to compare fleet foxes too, its more like a combination of many, midlake, nick drake, neil young, my morning jacket.
All of which are most def worth a listen if you like this album. to me there isnt a bad track on the album and everyone is a musical array on the ears, star spangled, acid tinged pop/folk at its very finest.
To me there are a few stand out tracks on the album, 'ragged wood' is by far my favourite, its one of those tracks which you hope never ends or is constantly on repeat! its like two or three songs in one, constant tempo and beat changes throughout the song, a most ecclectic haunting voice throughout.
'He doesnt know why' is another stand out track, this is something you could imagine a slowed down beach boys to sound like, poppy tambourine beats and catchy words to hum along to. In fact most tracks on the album are my favourites but just wanted to pick out a few of the best in my opinion.
Like i mentioned there isnt a bad track on album, its not a long album so its highly unlikey you will get sick of it. ive had it for months now and still remains a constant favourite on my decks!

5.0 out of 5 stars the talent of wainwright, heriditory!, 4 Jun 2008
i had been waiting for the follow up to martha's critically acclaimed debut self titled album. this shows pure genius, simply anything that is touched by martha shines a light. obvious cameo's from parent's and brother rufus and the immense pete townsend.
my fav track although the decision was difficult is 'jesus and mary' powerful in many ways, vocals put massive emphasis on the quite basis but quirky background music.
other stand out tracks, opening rocker 'bleeding all over you' lots of wording and promoting of the album title and 'comin tonight'. comin tonight gives the first taste of pete townsend on guitars, marthas vocals are sounding early joni mitchell to patti smith. the diverse 'the george song' samples just how talented martha and rufus are when they are put together, why not release a joint album???!
in fact this album is both intense and amazing, ive had the privilage to go see martha live a few times now and she never disappoints.

4.0 out of 5 stars brilliant country esque rock, 25 April 2008
This review is from: Oneida Road (Audio CD)
this album was a bit of a chance for me when i bought it, got it as a recommendation off here. this is the second time ive took a recommendation and im entirely happy with my purchase.
some of the songs are quite difficult to describe in comparison to other artists but for most part ive decided to go with the sound of early drive by truckers but not as gruff sounding as jason isbell's voice.

opener 'top of your head' is very quirky and is a bit of a rambling along tune with plenty of heart and soul. 'defender' is one of my fav tracks and again sounds very diffenerent to the first, more like big country mixed with vocal talents of the band, strange but true! 'no one called you a failure' again another favourite of mine, a bit more uptempo than other songs, plenty of basic but catchy guitar riffs along the way. Gaven Richards is one of the main singers and you can tell when its not him on the vocals.
i could go on and describe evry song, but its almost too difficult due to the varied styles. simply buy this album if you have a love for music, country/pop rock alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars refreshing change, 20 April 2008
This review is from: Free School Milk (Audio CD)
this album is so cool, very much 70s sounding pop. think part beach boys/ bay city rollers with not a bit of indie thrown in, makes a pleasant change.
its a great album to just sit down and relax with.
This sounds like it was made in the seventies, as most of the reviews say, proves we all think the same. its almost country sounding in parts but more popped up, if thats at all possible! 'i will wait for you' is extremely twangy and catchy, you will be humming this for weeks. 'shame' is by far my favourite track, think thrills sounding with beach boy vibrations. they are touring again soon and i think i will be snapping up my ticket! hopefully more success to come for td, bring on another album.......

3.0 out of 5 stars great but not typical jesse, 19 April 2008
This review is from: On Your Sleeve (Audio CD)
this album is decent but not his best by a mile. i have seen jesse live quite a few times and he doesnt disappoint. i had heard allot of these covers on his live sets, dont get me wrong some are very good but some arn't up to the normal jesse standard.
personal favs, 'looking for a love' (neil young) and 'do you remember rock and roll' (ramones). there are some strange covers on the album, i was very surprised at 'everybodys talking'. jesse's voice is still good throughout. wishing for some new material though, may have to make due with his official live album.
this album is still full of jesses full on sounding energy he always gives out. there are some songs such as 'wonderful world' (sam cooke) and 'sway' (slime) where you can feel the emotion behind his choices to include them on this album
obviously if your a fan of jesse you will buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars accelerate to the future, 6 April 2008
This review is from: Accelerate [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
well since this is rem's first album in 4 years i was very nervous of what sound they would be giving out. lets say there was never any disappointment apart from the fact its a very short album at approx 34 minutes.
stipe and co have gone back to their roots, imagine the depth of automatic with the rock of new adventures and monster and you come up with accelerate. i have played this album non stop since buying, its very raw and addictive. the summer festivals and tour will be amazing! 'supernatural superserious' was a fine first choice in single form, im hoping the daysleeper feeling 'houston' will be the next choice of single. Accelerate also has crowd pleaser 'im gonna dj' as the last track, its been around for a while now and im glad its finally got an official release. i bought this version of the album as im a sheer rem addict, plus the bonus dvd has two b-side songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars rocking all over the crowes, 14 Mar 2008
This review is from: Warpaint (Audio CD)
although its not a perfect album, this is a fine return to form. first new material in well over 7 years.
i had heard people talk about this album and said it was quite country sounding, i was a little worried by that comment but none the less i invested in the album, i wasnt dissappointed.
some of the bc songs were slow and less rocky that i expected but altogether fitted well on an extremely rock worthy album. the brothers are as ever very talented and their vocals are as rocky and gruff as ever! nothing too different from most of their other albums but im glad theyre back!
my personal fav on the album is track 5 'we who see the deep', and 'oh jesephine' and ' theyres gold in them hills' could be where the country rock tag came from.
if you liked this album buy anything by ryan adams or the hold stady.

5.0 out of 5 stars star for the future, a marvel, 12 Mar 2008
This review is from: Skybound (Audio CD)
well i was quite nervous about listening to toms second album as allot of writers seem to struggle with the composure of their second. lets say i was never dissappointed from the opening track 'a night like this' to the excellence of crowd pleaser 'better' it was always going to be a cd worth the wait.
this artist had made people stand up and take note of his sheer brilliance. my fav track on the album is 'skybound' the vocals sound, excuse the cheesiness of this but tom has the voice of an angel, see him live and you will understand what i mean. this album came out in jan 08 and i would def say its a rare gem found in the opening of the music worlds upcoming artists.
if you dont already own, buy his first album 'feather and stone', its a bit less well cut but brilliant none the less.

4.0 out of 5 stars forgotten debut, 4 Mar 2008
This review is from: Maplewood (Audio CD)
this album is a start of things which became for ed harcourt. its his first album, which is strangely a 6 track mini ep, but stunningly beautiful none the less.
in my opinion 'apple of my eye' is the stand out track off the album but closely followed by 'attaboy go spin a yarn' which sounds like something you would stumble upon in a downtown corner bar on a lazy weekday afternoon. listening to 'he's building a swamp' ed's vocals can be quite distant to what you may have before heard but dont be put off, listen to the amazing sounds in the background.
if you this like listen to his later albums or try some jeff klein or alex lloyd.

5.0 out of 5 stars inspired, 3 Mar 2008
This review is from: feather & stone (Audio CD)
this album is amazing, i bought it way back in early 2004 and have the older gatefold version. i heard 'this boy' and was blown away by toms musical genius.
There are many comparisons to jeff buckley and it is understandable why, to be there is a bit more of tom mcrae and ed harcourt sounding so if you like any of these artists buy this album.
i cant say that i dont like any of the songs on the album, they all have so much emotion in them. my personal fav on the album is 'girl from the hills' very mellow and obviously sung about something that couldnt be had, im sure everyone has experienced that in their life.
i have the luck of going to see tom on his skybound tour in the next week, im curious of what wonders i will hear.
