5.0 out of 5 stars lo-fi genius that deserves a wider audience, 9 May 2000
This review is from: The Sophtware Slump (Audio CD)
yet another album bought after hearing one track on the radio (the crystal lake) and hearing a record of the week last year on mark and lard (a.m 180). i resisted the temptation to forward to the aforementioned single and started from the beginning. its a lot gentler and melodic than i expected from the various parallels i'd read. the first two tracks are quite simply beautiful and by the time my favourite 'the crystal lake' begins with its booming guitar line, i'd forgotten that this was the reason i'd bought the album in the first place. i defy you not to turn track four up as far as it will go. this deserves to be a hit, but it won't be, of course. they show a superb ear for a delicate tune and aren't afraid to use quirky effects that would sound twee elsewhere, but work superbly well here. surprisingly sensitive with jason lytle's fragile voice threatening to break at any time. this could be the future of accessible alternative music, because it's far out enough to please a lot of 'us', but its tuneful enough to reach an awful lot more of 'them'.
