Emotional! Hardcore! A real find!,

This review is from: The Ugly Organ (Audio CD)
I bought this because someone compared them to Fugazi (who are the band of my dreams!). That wasn't accurate (the lyrical content is in an entirely different ballpark), but Cursive are definitely a find. This album is a gem. Tim Kasher's lyrics are pure poetry, he has a wonderful way with words and a hilariously clever turn of phrase. Being emotional about emotions has never sounded so good. The music veers between dark orchestral moments and loud stabs of guitary mutha rock. The theatrical element and 'concept' of it lead me to imagine this being turned into a musical and that's no bad thing. Buy this today, if not sooner!
