The first five tracks of the album are solid and perfect. My personal favorite is Hooligan. What a wonderful song. It's got a super Madchester beat, with a surf guitar strum throughout. But, Tiny Feet, Winter, Outside and Stairs are all favorites. The second half of the album wanes a bit, but overall the album is a definite winner.
They released an EP called Total Abandon between their first album and this one, so technically I should have started the album off with that, if we were to remain strictly chronological. But, they may have killed the momentum, so I tagged them on the end.
Finally, the cover is another beautiful Me Company cover, I love their work.
I got to tell you, it's difficult to type with Cheeto dust on your fingers. I'm about to fuck up the keyboard with crud. Maybe I should quit eating them long enough to finish this. Hell no.
I absolutely LOVED "Cleopatra Grip," but I've never heard this one or "Vertical Smile." Definitely giving this one a try -- if it's as good as their first one, I'm sure that I'll love it!ReplyDelete
