Black, yet a bright long-production debut, 12 Feb. 2005
The Stills managed to deliver black yet bright music on this bold and ravishing album, with intelligent and insightful lyrics ("Changes..., "Gender Bombs"). The outstanding performance and blending of the rhythm section, with fantastic bass lines ("Still in Love Song", an updated version originally released in the Rememberese EP) keeps a good balance with the marvellous guitar riffs and progressions of the likes of "Changes are no Good" and "Love and Death" which are reminiscent of Echo and the Bunnymen, The Devlins, and James' Whiplash cinematic atmospheres. This band is as good as Interpol and Longwave, with a more balanced production on the debut album. Such a band will likely deliver an even better second installment.
