LONGVIEW Mercury (2003 UK 12-track CD including the single Further picture sleeve)
Manchester-based indie-rock outfit Longview are in pursuit of a grand, romantic--indeed, religious--vision, and on their debut album, Mercury, they realise it with no lack of wide-eyed faith. "God's love will save our lives / It will come shining bright," sings frontman Rob McVey on the opening "Further", indicating, in this age when Christian rock is typically dismissed as the tritest of the trite, a rather surprising bravery of conviction. Luckily, however, there's far more to Mercury than over-serious religious zeal. Fulsome guitar vistas like "Will You Wait Here" and "Electricity" touch at the dreamy psychedelia of fellow Mancunians Doves or Elbow--albeit an Elbow realised without Guy Garvey's trademarked curmudgeonly attitude and invested with a hearty optimism. Importantly, for Longview, there are hit singles in the waiting here: "I Would" is a windswept take on the sort of lilting piano balladry that Coldplay did before them, and Echo and the Bunnymen did long before them; and the thunderous "When You Sleep" marches along with a righteous ire little seen since the Smiths flounced through these parts. --Louis Pattison
Top Customer Reviews
Whilst 'Further' is an excellent example of what Long-View are all about, each song on the album stands out in it's own right. From the equally haunting 'Can't Explain' to the uplifting 'One more try', this album is guaranteed to please.
A break from the current 'Alternative' market, saturated with cliched eye-liner wearing whiney teens and talentless guitar smashing Nu-Metal pop bands, Long-View play straight from the heart.
For me, this album is a masterpiece.
If you like leaves, elbow, coldplay and electric soft parade, you can't go far wrong.
I gave this album four stars because it could be slightly more varied but only a minor niggle.
Go buy this album-best debut of the year for me.
if you are thinking of buying this album i higly recomend you do.You will be so glad you did.It will be worth it,promise.once you have the cd you will wonder why this band have yet to become stadium fillers. for people who truly appreciate great music!
I heard Further and was keen to hear more from the band. However, some of the reviews I read suggested that this was a one track album with Further being the stand out track. Then I heard When You Sleep, Nowhere and Can't Explain and I decided to take the risk.
As the reivews I read suggested, Further is a stand out track, but the album also contains a number of other excellent tracks. It is far from a one track album. In fact for me there are only two filler tracks on the album - Falling For You and Falling Without You. The album is well balanced with rockier tracks such as Electricity, Can't Explain, When You Sleep, Nowhere and the superb Will You Wait Here, and more moody tracks such as I Would and Still.
The album ends beautifully with the plaintive sound of This Is. Ignore the comparisons to Coldplay, Elbow, Doves, Embrace etc. Thre is a Mancunian feel to the album, but it stands on its own merits and its own sound. Buy it and perservere. Youll be rewarded in the end.
Put quite simply, this album rates as one of the best debut albums in a long time.
I just hope this time the band finally get the recognition they deserve.
