5.0 out of 5 stars Lou does it again!, 18 Nov. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: One Part Lullaby (Audio CD)
I only recently heard of The Folk Implosion, and, being a fan of Sebadoh, and Lou Barlow himself, picked this up just days after hearing of them. This was an impulse buy not to be regretted, and is one of the best albums I have heard all year. It is more calm, peaceful, and quiet than Sebadoh, but Lou's lyrics still shine through amongst all the instrumental jiggery-pokery to be found here. The tremendous emotion and feeling in his voice, combined with the glorious splendour of the music, works wonders. I didn't expect it to be anything like Sebadoh, but didn't quite know what to expect. I was very impressed. An unexpected album of the year, very original, but touching and addictive at the same time. Songs such as "My Ritual" and "Free To Go" simply ooze pop, and catchiness, whereas ones such as "Mechanical Man", strike a chord with the listener, right through the heart, like an answer to the prayers which they thought they had never even uttered. If you think all of this sounds like pretentious sickly praise from a fan, and have never heard this beautiful album, then my advice is to go and listen to it now. Or even better, go and buy it. Haven't heard them yet? Then take a chance. You know you won't regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheerier Than Sebadoh!, 15 Nov. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: One Part Lullaby (Audio CD)
I'm not a huge fan of Sebadoh, Lou Barlows (the singer/songwriter of Folk implosion) other band. Lou Barlow can write a classic tune but is too busy trying to make things sound lo-fi and uncomercial much to the detriment of the song itself. So this side project came as a pleasant suprise, because the tune comes first. Although he almost turns the situation on it's head by using too much instrumental and studio jiggery pokery. This is a fairly up beat guitar pop album using infectious funky hip hop beats to and lots of instruments to back up classic Lou Barlow songs. It works really, well even the wild west style instrumental is great. The lyrics in true Barlow style are deeply personal, but this time a bit cheerier than usual. If you've heard Sebadoh or are new both bands buy this, you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic CD, 10 May 2010
By 
This review is from: One Part Lullaby (Audio CD)
Bought this on the basis of one song played to me on last.fm & was totally blown away, it's really outstanding. Lo-fi, quirky, feel good indie, I'd describe as Beck crossed with Pavement with maybe a pinch of Morphine thrown in!
I can't believe I only just heard of them, this album has instantly made it into my top 10 CDs (& I have a *lot* of CDs).
Buy it, I really can't imagine that anyone could dislike it!
