5.0 out of 5 stars Prog never sounded so good, 12 Sept. 2004
This review is from: Now Here Is Nowhere (Audio CD)
Secret Machines live is an amazing experience. You get taken in to the music and lose yourself completely, not finding yourself again until the very last chord has rung out. This album is just the same. From the opening track, First Wave Down, you get sucked in and completely lost. The compositions on 'Now Here is Nowhere' are spectacular, every song has a great feeling of depth, like you're totally immersed in it.
A lot of people have compared this band to the Flaming Lips, and certainly, on track 3, Leaves Are Gone, you can hear their influence. But Secret Machines is a totally different beast. Brandon Curtis's vocals are much more refined, and the different layers which make up the songs seem to hold together much better.
For me 'Now Here is Nowhere' works best as a whole, listened to from start to finish. There are no stand-out tracks, it's just a stand-out album.
