This review is from: Mi Media Naranja (Audio CD)
Labradford are responsible for some of the most beautiful and moving music of the post rock genre. Combining strings and piano with the glacial guitar structures present on their early work, Mi Media Naranja is easily their masterpiece.
When this came out in 1997 to these ears it sounded like nothing else. Combining classical with modern rock was news to me, and I've just ordered the cd version (a total bargain at a fiver!) as my vinyl copy is starting to sound a little worn, and I have wanted to be able to play this record in the car and bedroom for years.
One other thing - most albums start off with the stongest tracks to grab the listeners attention and then things slowly go downhill. Not the case here - the final three tracks are superb, and this record gets better as it progresses, so stick with it if you aren't immediately pulled in.
