Achilles Heel, 21 Jun. 2004
Pedro the lion are one of the best rock acts of this age. Their amazing temproment and adjusting style are yet to break the commercial barrier (which is a great thing), but 'Achilles Heel' is the closest they have come so far. The album is as beautiful as any of the others however 'Control' is by far my favourite album and I was hoping this album would head in a simular direction. I was wrong. Even though David's song writing ability is as powerful and thought provoking as ever, the emotional impact of 'Control' is something that I dont think can be beaten. 'Achilles Heel' is a modern rock masterpiece that is as subtle as it is challenging, the vocals are smooth, soft and easily digestable which cuts nicely with the melancholic pop backdrop of guitar and gentle drum beats. This is a pleasant album but is not one I would recommend to a "newcommer" to the band. Pedro The Lion are truely remarkable, dont miss out!
