Customer Review

on 16 September 2004
This follow-up to the Friedlander siblings' first album, the sublime GALLOWSBIRD BARK is as good in every way. They even manage to create an aural soundscape that is in the same ball-park as the first album, but at the other end of the pitch. BLUEBERRY BOAT is a cornucopeia of dissonance, melody, dizzy-ing genre shifts, tongue-twisting word-play and exuberance. I might also add that it is a beautiful and ethereal progression of song, too. Again, like the first album, this demands repeated listening. Too many people will give this a cursory listen and walk away frustrated by its surface obtuseness, its pretensions to song-smithery and its child-like fascination with thematic and melodic bric-a-brac. But please, stick with it and you will come away a happier, more balanced, nicer-smelling and charming person. I guarantee it.
