5.0 out of 5 stars Achingly beautiful British take on Americana, 10 Jan 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Out Of Tune (Audio CD)
This record is so overlooked. A lost classic. It really is, you have to believe me. Mojave 3 are steeped in the traditions of true country folk music, Out Of Tune brings to mind such luminaries as Neil Young, The Byrds, Nick Drake and Bob Dylan, but importantly Mojave 3 have taken the essence of those artists to create a beautiful soundscape of voices and guitars. A truly great record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Misunderstood Acoustic Ballads, 6 Sep 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Out Of Tune (Audio CD)
When i first read about Mojave3 i was intrigued to say the least as they had been consistantly slagged off for being a tiresome acoustic country band that's tunes never went anywhere. Well-i took the risk anyway and what i'd like to say to the hip young reviewers of Q and Select cannot be printed in this text. You see where it not for the fact that Mojave3 have only appeared in the last few years they would surely have been compared and even coupled with Neil Young. There brand of small town acoustics wash over you in desert drenched songs of love,loss, and of course;America. But there is so much more going on here than meets the eye immediatly. For once here is an album that can be left on all the way through without changing mood and without the listener always having to skip a track or two that don't suit the 'mood' your in. Mojave3 are a culmanation of people from groups past including a majority from The Hope Blister who were once This Mortal Coil. But don't let it put you off if you don't like either of these bands as Mojave3 are a far cry from those former musical pioneers. With suprise singles on the album like the fantastic 'Who Do You Love' and the slightly more pop-like 'Angel' the mood is soft, the style is string laden, the words are simple but perfect (with such irridescent treasures such as-"i've been looking for a love, but pretty soon i guess i'll fuck things up").
Don't let the reviewers put you off Mojave3 are purely simple acoustic riddled perfection. Neil Hasteads voice as always will either woe or annoy you, but personally i find only The Notwist more enjoyable to sing along to.
Stand out track is definetly 'caught beneath your heel'.
( If you like Mojave3 already and need more acoustic meanderings for your insatiable appetite then try out Palace, Badly Drawn Boy, and of course; Neil Young-preferably the albums...Silver and Gold and After the Gold Rush )

5.0 out of 5 stars So few reviews, 6 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Out Of Tune (Audio CD)
The lack of reviews suggests too few people know of this gem.
I'm pretty new to Mojave 3; only discovered them a few months ago. And immediately fell in love with their melancholy tunefulness.
Bought all their CDs within a month, I was so overwhelmed.
But if I was to recommmend an introduction to their world, it would be Out of Tune: is has what I think is a classic in "To Whom should I Write"; which brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it. But, while some might criticise them for being wet, this CD has more than its quota of toe tapping tracks like Some Kinda Angel, and Who Do You Love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essence of Mojave 3, 9 Sep 2010
This review is from: Out Of Tune (Audio CD)
I enjoyed this recording from the beginning. It features one pop hit (track #3), the remaining cuts being a collection of mid-tempo pearls, oscillating from sadness to hope. I've been listening to it for more than one week.
