4.0 out of 5 stars so very close to brilliant, 20 Nov. 2005
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Catch Without Arms (Audio CD)
After discovering el cielo last year and really growing to love dredg, i was eagerly looking forward to catch with out arms, and equally alarmed when i read some of the amazon reviews slating this album, however after much consideration i've considered that its totally personal taste rather to prefer leitmotif or el cielo to this, but it seems strange that it could be dismissed as poor in anyway. the criticism seems to mostly be over its lack of "progness" as its a farmore straight album of solid 4 minute songs. But here's the thing, apart from a couple of exceptions the songs are excellent. the imediacy really suits them and the songwriting is stronger than el cielo(although el cielo is outstanding in a different way), theyve clearly tried to pin down a definate sound of their own on this, and despite wearing their influences on their sleeve it really works for them, the quality of these songs on their own really doesnt need 9 minute interludes to bridge them. Its epic, melodic, i really like the production, and its very accesible, it only gets 4 because there are a couple of weak moments-zebraskin and matroshka("cough U2")can be avoided, overall if you like your rock big, melodic and inventive, then you cant go far wrong with this album. play it loud
