5.0 out of 5 stars A sad day for music, 24 May 2006
By 
This review is from: Just like The Fambly Cat (Audio CD)
So here it is then. Grandaddys swansong. Without a doubt this is one group that deserved more acclaim for there work than they ever recieved. In my opinion they have released one Bona fide classic in The Sophtware Slump, and all of there other work is right up with the best.

Frequently (Wrongly...)compared to the Flaming Lips, Grandaddy have decided that after years slogging it out, they dont have the money or the inclination to do it anymore. This is so sad when you consider some of the dross which is clogging up the airwaves and mp3 players of the world. They have a song for every emotion, and this album is no different.

The opener is typical Grandaddy, with the childs voice and a fuzzy background piano. This leads into Jeez Louise, which is great. Other high points for me are the sublime Rear view mirror, Elevate myself, and of course This is how it always starts.

An anorac note for hidden track 15. When the band did a signing for Sumday at a record store in Sydney my brother went along and ended up talking to Jason Lyttle for a good 30 mins. They discussed a mutual love of ELO. Track 15 is Shangri La, an ELO tune taken from A New World record. It fits beautifully, just like the band always did.
