4.0 out of 5 stars Hooray Indeed !
Hooray For Earth is the brainchild of one Noel Heroux, an American
singer/writer of far more than average competence. 'True Loves' is
a collection of ten numbers which nod to sixties' psychedelia and
eighties' synth-pop in almost equal measure. Mr Heroux knows how to
spin good tunes from the ether and his dense vocal harmonies imbue
the music with...

2.0 out of 5 stars 8o's Throw Back
I found this cd a throw back to the 80's except the 80's were far superior.
This sounded like a band trying to be like "Tears for Fears".
Unfortunately it does not work.
If anyone decides they like this cd then i suggest you dig out some old Tears for Fears records/cd's and listen to a far superior sound than this. I also found the tracks short and with...

This review is from: True Loves (Audio CD)
Hooray For Earth is the brainchild of one Noel Heroux, an American
singer/writer of far more than average competence. 'True Loves' is
a collection of ten numbers which nod to sixties' psychedelia and
eighties' synth-pop in almost equal measure. Mr Heroux knows how to
spin good tunes from the ether and his dense vocal harmonies imbue
the music with a warm but rock-solid sense of texture and dynamics.

Of the compositions on offer 'Sails' impresses with its strong back
beat, jiggedy-juddery synthesiser lines and upstanding chorus; title
track 'True Loves', too, crackles with electricity and sports an
incandescent melody which got me thinking back to some of Scritti
(remember them?) Politti's finer moments; 'No Love' has greater light
and shade and sports some jolly brass accents, shape-shifting backing
vocals and deconstructed guitar decorations; the tiny 'Pulling Back',
coming in to land at just forty seconds, sounds like a bunch of Druids
up to something ambiguous but fun on a misty hilltop and final track
'Black Trees', with its martial percussion and uplifting, high-riding
vocal, brings the album to a stirring conclusion. A splendid little anthem.

If they don't dip under the radar and float off into oblivion I reckon
Hooray For Earth might just make their mark on the listening world.

Give them a chance says I.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything and the kitchen sink, 16 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: True Loves (Audio CD)
If Phil Spector had produced synth pop in the eighties, it may have sounded like this. Big choruses, plenty of reverb and clever songs. They deserve a wider audience.

If anyone decides they like this cd then i suggest you dig out some old Tears for Fears records/cd's and listen to a far superior sound than this. I also found the tracks short and with only 10 on the cd a bit poor for a debut release. I think this is one that will go to the back of the cupboard.
