This review is from: Y'All Get Scared Now, Ya Hear! (Audio CD)
Like many people checking out this conglomeration of Scottish Indie bands, I thought how could these musicians possibly mesh into a single unit to form the kind of music we've been loving all these years? Somehow though, it happened and the world's a better place for it. Members of Snowpatrol, Belle & Sebastian, Mogwai, V-Twin, etc, etc, churned out this album in record time. The result then, is predictable: great tunes, exploration, but a possible lack of proper aging.
"Y'all Get Scared Now Ya Hear" holds up to repeated plays and covers the scope of emotional ground that Snowpatrol was applauded for with "When it's all over we still have to clear up." At times it is simple or complex or just plain lovely. The problem though is that it remains a conglomeration band and the music was recorded in the span of two weeks or so. Hence, it doesn't mould into one complete "thing" and it sounds like, well, like a bunch of talented musicians pumping out a quick disc.
"Will you please be there for me" and "Sting" are great tracks that give a good idea to what the concept seems to be for the album--a reveling in what these bands are known for. They are soulful and fun, without sounding childish. "If there is I haven't found it yet" just proves that the band should stick with their male vocalists. Don't miss the first few tracks definitly, but if your mind starts to wander a bit as it goes on, you are probably not alone.
In the end, a fine preformance by all involved. Perhaps the next CD will be less rushed and more together, but the barefaced talent and greatness of all involved make this an entirely listenable and worthwhile project.
