4. All Is Dream - by Mercury Rev
This album is without any doubt the best album I've listened to since the Flaming Lips' "The Soft Bulletin".
I'd already listened to Deserter's Songs, and loved every moment of it. Before buying the album I checked the reviews on this site, and found many of them were negative. Well, a lesson learnt, don't let the opinions of others put you off!
This album far surpasses Deserter's Songs in terms of song structure and accessibility. From dramatic soundscapes (The Dark is Rising) to the beautifully laid back (Tides of the Moon) to the amusingly catchy (Nite and Fog) this album is a treasure and any fan of emotional rock music should at least try it. There's barely any anger in this album, there are no songs which try and make you form a certain opinion on something.. the lyrics are very inward and daydreamy, leaving you open to form your opinion of the person who wrote them. Which makes a refreshing change. A truly outstanding album. I await their next!
