5.0 out of 5 stars More mind-blowing music from Montreal :-), 23 Aug 2002
This review is from: Born Into Trouble As The Sparks Fly Upward (Audio CD)
This has to be the best album of 2001. If not, one of the best. I got into Godspeed and the Constellation label around the time of 'Lift Your Skinny Fists...', and have been following the label and the Montreal music scene ever since. Along with 'Lift...', this is the best album from that end of the globe.
I won't bother going through the tracks, as other people have done that already. I'm just here to back them up - the balance of intense guitar/strings, vocals, mournful sections, and a pop song (?! yes, well almost - 'the triumph of our tired eyes' is about as close as you'll get) is just perfect. Personally, I like it more than their first album for that very reason. It's also much more consice than 'Lift...' because of the length. There's obviously a lot of emotion in this record. Included in the packaging is a poster-sized rant on police and corporations and hope. It shows through onto the recording.
Some poeple have commented on the quality of Efrim's voice (the guy who sings). I like it - it adds a rough edge. It's very honest, not like the popstar-autotune rubbish you get these days.
So buy it! Another amazing record from Efrim and co...
