Customer Review

on 9 August 2005
I really don't see what the problem is. Reading the customer reviews of this album and the other SFA albums, a lot of people seem to think that Rings Around the World is an over-produced highly flawed piece of....this warranted cries of "were you listening to the same album as me?"
Ok, it was the first SFA album I ever heard, that might have altered my perception somewhat. Still, I find it quite hard to determine exactly what people find so wrong about this album. The highly chilled opener, "Alternative Route to Vulcan Street", is gorgeous, a showcase of their now trademark quirkiness...which gives way to the equally brilliant "Sidewalk Serfer Girl", a perfect pop song with thrash metal injections.
Positively bursting with genius, the album's full of glorious moments that I found extremely refreshing on first listen. At this point the most avant-garde CD in my collection was Travis's Invisible Band. Simply put, this was unlike anything I'd ever heard before. "No Sympathy" shocked me the most....glorious, glorious sunny pop music that gives way to an insane techno freakout....
Then there's the lush "Juxtaposed with U", the wonderful "Run Christian Run" and the menacing "Touch Sensitive"....A great album, tomorrow's classic rock....today.
