A return to form by the "Kings of Melancholy Rock",
By A Customer
This review is from: This Desert Life (Audio CD)
After waiting what seemed like an eternity for some new material from the crows.....It seems the break did Adam some good....This album is great....did i say Great.....I mean GREAT! from the beautifully hypnotic 'Color Blind' and delightful 'Amy hit the atmosphere' to the fun of 'Hanging Around', 'St. Robinson and his Cadillac dream'. I'm not saying that these songs aren't melancholic but they are produced and mixed with such perfection that you can't help but love them. Simple melodies, simple riffs & intense lyrics make up what I believe is a classic album. A return to the class and finesse of the first album "August and everything after" and with the more addictive qualities of the best songs from "Recovering the satellites" mixed together to make this band more approachable to the virgin ear and yet still maintaining the quality and form as before. Adam must have found some kind of joy in his life after dating countless models and members of the cast of friends he is still proving how lonely the human soul truly can be! Bravo gentlemen see you when you tour next. oh and by the way check out the bonus track...Excellent.
