5.0 out of 5 stars I love it when a band comes together, 21 Oct 2005
This review is from: The Runners Four (Audio CD)
Just like the best band in the world, Melt Banana, did around the time of their stunning "Teeny Shiny" album, Deerhoof have finally jettisoned their kick-it-to-bits-and-selotape-it-back-together approach to songwriting and for once produced a brilliantly coherent collection of songs. This is the sound of a band channelling the spirit of the Magic Band, the Beach Boys, a mummified puffin and a seedless grape whilst still remaining very much on their own planet, hooray! For once I can listen to a Deerhoof album without getting that sudden falling-off-a-bike, shudder-to-a-halt feeling I get occasionally when I'm drifting off to sleep. These fruitcakes have suddenly got very, very good at what they do and you will delight in catchy tune after catchy tune - yea, even in their melodies shall you hear melodies. Hearing this album made me feel like a dog who goes up a mountain to find a bone and comes back down having found lasting spiritual fulfillment.
