Long Distance - Ivy's best album todate
on 25 January 2005
This has to be their best album todate. I first got into Ivy after watching the TV mini series Kingdom Hospital, the track "Worry about you" was used as the title song for the series. While "Worry About you" is a slow sombre affair, this is not the Verve and is the slowest track on the album. The band it's self is a three piece combo, two are married, and also each member has interests in other groups, such as Fountains of Wayne and Paco (the two married ones' spin off band). If you've never heard of these guys you should give them a go. They are New York based, I'd say their sound is very grown up adult pop, the closest I could come to is UK band "All About Eve" their last album called "Ultraviolet" had similar sounds. Back to the album... all the tracks are very good, some do stand out "Edge of the Ocean" "Undertow" "While we're in Love" "I think of you" are all excellent songs. Ivy have a new album out in March 2005, I can't wait. But if you really can't wait try getting hold of "Apartment Life" or the cover album "Guest Room", you'll also find various EPs on the various music web sites as well as Ivy's own web site, there's always "Paco's" first (and only) full album too.
