A surprisingly large proportion of my daylight thinking time these days is devoted to working out which is better - this second album by The Silver Seas or their third - Chateau Revenge. I can't put a cigarette paper between them.
Both albums (and their first outing, Starry Gazey Pie which is pretty nifty too) can appear a little bland at first listen. Perhaps its the smoothed out polished shiny widescreen sound that causes that. Its all strummed acoustic 12-string guitar, string section and tasteful electric guitar touches. After a couple of listens though the great songs begin to burrow into your brain. All thoughts of blandness are soon left behind as these great joyous surging grown-up pop songs become the new soundtrack to your life.
I'm utterly baffled that this band isn't huge. Perhaps they soon will be, when the world gets over its first impression.
