Several of their Tugboat singles are found on Any Other City - 'The Leanover b/w New Town, 'Let's Get Out' (though not it's double a-side 'Is Is and the IRS')and 'Young Offenders' - though not 'Love Trinity.' I think if you like one track, you'll like it all - though the angular material and Sue Tompkins' vocals won't be for everyone. It might be only angular indie rock, but I like it - the right stuff/the right stuff - as the opening track 'PS Exclusive' has it. Any Other City is a fine album, one passed over by some people (me included) - well worth tracking down, alongside the recent live album...
If you like your music off-beat without being gimmicky you should lap this up.
After reading other review sof this album I really can not see peoples' promblem with it, the songs are finely crafted, and simply could not be improved upon. "Sorrow" broke my heart and made me thankful for it, a perfect finish to the album leaving the listener feeling wholy satiated. With an album this enjoyable and emotive, what more could you want?

This is an awesome album. The vocals are esoteric and resonant against a background of simple and effective post rock stylings. Read morePublished on 9 Mar. 2004 by L. Hardt
