5.0 out of 5 stars Obvious, but brilliant!, 6 Sept. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: The Music (Audio CD)
I have followed The Music for at least a year having been impressed with the Stone Roses-esque sound of the original 'Take the Long Road and Walk It'. Ever since then, with The People Ep for example, they have shown steady progress, which gradually increased my expectations for the album.
I was not disappointed. The Music have got a perfect blend of instruments in their tracks. 'Take the Long Road and Walk It' is a very 'funky' song, which exudes their potential and overall 'coolness' as a band. 'Turn Out the Light' is at the other extreme, providing a more introspective look at the band and what they want to say.
Many have said that the lyrics are sometimes confused and not clear. However, with instrumental skill as good as this, this simply adds to The Music's charm. Harvey's voice is as if it is another instrument, and moulds into the overall sound of the tracks.
My one disappointment was that some tracks like 'Let Love be the Healer' and 'Alone' for example have been left off the album, it just seems a waste not to include such great songs onto their debut album.
Despite this, The Music's debut album is a triumphant success. Those who like Led Zeppelin and the Stone Roses should try this band out, they have equal potential in my opinion, and similar sound, which makes it great for fans of the bands mentioned.
