5.0 out of 5 stars the drang is in the house Nov. 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
i wish i could give them 10 stars b/c that's what they should get. on top of their game musically and very relevant lyrics; ester drang has got to be my favoritest band these days. i have both infinite keys and goldenwest and i can honestly say that goldenwest is just as beautiful as the latter. i suggest for listeners who appreciate rock and soul and art and ... etc. i like em... a lot.

3.0 out of 5 stars Close, but yet so far Dec 8 2002
Format:Audio CD
In a world where most music written by Christians comes off sounding contrived and shallow, Ester Drang's Goldenwest is a welcome surprise. Here you will find melodies that sound honest and thoughtful, not just simply songs that are trying to sound like every other song in the market today. This is real music.
Unfortunately, as real as it is, I found Goldenwest to get rather dull once I reached the fifth song or so. Maybe it's the fact that some of the first songs, especially "Is Nothing New" and "Repeating the Procedure," have such an emotional power to them that the remaining tracks sound pale in comparison. The only song that is at least listenable near the end is probably "How Good is Good Enough," with its striking, dramatic chorus.
Ester Drang's instrumentation is wonderfully diverse. Even in its dull moments, I had to admire the use of strings, chimes, and other instruments. It gives the album far more personality than if it only contained standard guitars and drums. Just listen to the beautifully-orchestrated title track to see what I mean.
If Ester Drang can learn to improve in the next few years, they could become a group to rival Radiohead and other legendary, unique artists. As they are, Ester Drang is better than most of the music world, but they still need practice. I sincerely hope they succeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Golden Songs Aug. 2 2001
By "jotul" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD is amazing from start to finish. The title track starts the CD with a beautiful piano piece that plays throughout the entire song and sets an atmosphere for the rest of the CD. "Repeating the Procedure" is an excellent rhythmic waltz that has a guitar driven chorus that will make you want to keep repeating it over and over. "Words That Cure" part 1 and part 2 are standout tracks on the album. They have harmonies that are slightly reminiscent of the Beach Boys, but are definately much more moody pieces than any of the songs that the Beach Boys ever did. The Final track reminds me of a cross between Sigur Ros and Mogwai, and that could never be a bad thing. Ester Drang hits everything right on and accomplishes everything it sets out to do.

I just discovered Ester Drang at this year's Cornerstone Festival in Illinois. My best friend loves them and she convinced me to listen to some of their songs. Beautiful doesn't quite describe it! I recommend this to any and everyone!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best album of 2001! Yes, really! March 5 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In my humble opinion, goldenwest is the best album nobody heard in 2001. If you enjoyed albums like The Soft Bulletin by The Flaming Lips, or O K Computer by radiohead, then do yourself a favor and buy goldenwest now.
goldenwest has layer upon layer of pure sonic heaven. Really, there isn't much more that I could expect from an album. I'd also place goldenwest up there with Loveless by My Bloody Valentine. If you like your music to be thoughtful, yet thought provoking; buy goldenwest now while it is still in print!
