Good but not earth-shattering,
This review is from: In The Aeroplane Over The Sea (Audio CD)
I bought this on the strength of other reviewers' hyperbole (on the American Amazon site in particular, the reviews are numerous and frequently ecstatic). And while I won't say that it was money entirely wasted - on the contrary, it is a quirky and likeable concoction, sort of Richard & Linda Thompson (circa 'I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight') spliced with mid-period Mercury Rev; an unusual pop experience - nevertheless, my universe is emphatically NOT turned on its head. Buy and enjoy...but let's keep things in perspective.
