5.0 out of 5 stars swell 41, 17 July 2002
This review is from: 41 (Audio CD)
Swells pure sound is simply made up of guitar, bass and drums.On 41, the tracks range from slow, grooves to original, flowing rock passages.
Most of the tracks rise from a strumming acoustic guitar to the rising and falling volume of the rhythm section. A few of the stronger tracks on the 13-track release include "Is That Important?" "Song Seven," "Don't Give" and "Forget About Jesus."
Melody Maker stated that Swell is "one of the best surprises I've heard in a good while. Subtle, unusual and well worth a listen."
Swell is led by David Freel on guitars and vocals. The other members are Sean Kirkpatrick on drums and Monte Vallier on bass. Each member ontributes his own style to create a laid-back type of groove to nearly all of the songs on 41.
The way in which the music is recorded provides much of the originality for the album.
The drums sound loose and big. Basically, just throw a drum kit in a room with some mics a good distance away, which creates an open type of sound. The acoustic guitar provides an almost folk-sounding element to the band. The electric guitar seems to flow over the rest of the instruments in a few of the songs, providing a sense of power.
If you happen to be in the mood for something a little different that's still interesting enough to keep you awake, check out Swell's 41.

3.0 out of 5 stars not quite swell, 17 July 2002
if your after the classic swell guitar, and basement drum sound, then their previous album 41 is by far their best work. This album has a much cleaner sharper sound, the first two tracks are outstanding then it slows down towards the end.
