5.0 out of 5 stars Sumday - music at it's most beautiful, 6 July 2003
By 
This review is from: Sumday (Ltd CD) (Audio CD)
An album that blew me away on first listen. At a time when i was in need of picking and needed to relax, this gem came along.
It builds steadily on 'Under the western Freeway' and 'the Sophtware Slump', taking the beauty and quiet calm of the latter album, whilst injecting the quirkiness and sense of fun from the the former.
It's not an album that pushes back boundaries or defines a new genre, but is just a breathtakingly beautfiul collection of songs that celebrate what music stands for. The songs are witty, charming, and demonstarte lyttle's amazing eye for neat observation on the not so wonderous world around him, 'the group who couldn't say' is a perfect example.
The songs, although great on their own, are more as an album, and it is here Grandaddy's strength lies ( along with harmony and lyrcial excellence) . Some people produce great singles, and yes grandaddy have dones this, but they make albums as a piece, their albums have a flow and feeling to them, it merges seamlessly, but not in a detrimental manner. Even the mighty Radiohead have been producing fragmented albums, a collection of songs, rather than a piece.
The combination of great guitars, fun, gentle caressing vocals and soothing pianos make this an album to remember.
By this album if you love music and like watching the world around you.
