So Says I,
This review is from: Chutes Too Narrow (Audio CD)
Chutes too Narrow is utterly fabulous. The melodies are intricately layered on effortlessly immense chord patterns humbled with a voice that cuts through it all. And despite the heavy plaudits I apply to the music, it is in my opinion the lyrics which stand out furthest. Inventive, astute and prophetic, words are beaten into lines to deliver nurtured bubbles of the sublime.
"walking up a slide, and there are those we know who'd have us five miles off the track".
"A cold and wet November dawn, and there are no barking sparrows".
All the tracks are fab apart from the last, but in particular 'So says ' 'kissing the lipless' and the harmonica on 'Pink Bullets' are summat special.
Its a shame not many people over here know about the shins, cos they're so so so so so so so so, good.
