Customer Review

on 8 August 2011
The first few times, Transatlanticism comes across as a good album, with the catchy melodies of The Sound of Settling and Expo '86 sticking in the listener's mind and making them want to return for more. However, there is so much more to this wonderful album than that. On each listen, a clever guitar riff in the background, an excellent drum section at the end of a verse, or a new meaning for the witty, ambiguous lyrics reveals itsself to the reader. I couldn't possibly count the number of times I have listened to this album, and it never gets old. For me, the main appeal is the lyrics - each song is a story, and when listening to them, they become the listener's story too.
Each element of this album - the rich and textured melodies; the sometimes obscure, sometimes blunt lyrics; the endearingly awkward vocals - comingles perfectly to make this one of my favourite LPs of all time. I would recommend you to buy it, listen carefully, and let it grow on you.
