This review is from: Good Morning To The Night (Audio CD)
Surfacing from a sea of musical mediocrity that currently afflicts the current music scene is this little gem. Pnau have proven that its is possible to re invent music in such a way that you have to admire their boldness in trawling through Elton Johns back log meshing together different song parts and imprint their personal stamp on them.
Lets makes things clear here this a Pnau album through and through and should be reviewed as such. Elton John's material is a contributing factor but the duo's inventive approach and execution lifts the music to another level and makes it their album.
A number of reviews comment on the albums brevity. Personally I feel the short track duration adds to the appeal leaving you wanting more, so you play the track again and again.This one of the albums strengths and suits the nature of the songs. Any longer and the tracks appeal diminishes.
As a non EJ fan most of the songs Pnau have chosen are unfamiliar to me so my opinion is not influenced .
High points abound. My personal favourites are Foreign fields( incredibly good), Sad, Good Morning to the night and Phoenix , but the rest is still enjoyable.
I can recall Pete Drummond once reviewing Spirit's debut album back in 1968. He said it left him in a cold sweat because it was so good.
So is this.
