Alternative Aussie Auters,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Want That You Are Always Happy (Audio CD)
They may have holed Lieutenant Pigeon with The Birdy Song but how anyone could pigeonhole this offering from Middle East is beyond my tiny little birdbrain... Pure WONDERMENT. Certainly Eclectic in style and range - from the downright recent-Sufjan-Steven-verging-on-latterday-Scott-Walker WEIRD (in a 'good' way) to (relatively) mainstream upbeat Empire-of-the-Sun (an album for Summer - finally arrived!!! Yeah!!!!!) vibes. Production very high too. Had it some months now, keep returning and the only recent album to compare in Consistent Quality and Wow-ness (tho' totally genre-different) is Decemberist's King Is Dead. Middle East Rock (well, just a bit, most of the time they 'lilt' leftfield cool...)!
