Spiral Stairway To Heaven,
This review is from: Monsoon (Audio CD)
After initial caution at a Spiral Stairs solo career based on a sometimes erratic input on the Pavement albums, ranging from the sublime (Date With Ikea, Hit The Plane Down etc.) to the underwhelming (Passat Dream); I have been pleasantly surprised by both Preston School Of Industry albums to date and with 'Monsoon', I feel he is beginning to hit his stride and play to his strengths - alt. country with sweet hooks. 'Monsoon' seems to occupy remarkably different areas to those that Malkmus works in these days, though I feel both have created strong albums since splintering off from the greatest alt. rock band of our time. 'Monsoon' is a fine collection of songs and another worthy addition to the Malkmus/Stairs/Pavement history.
