I first heard cuts off this album after a lengthy search on kazaa for new music. My friend who's music taste Id say is on par with my own sent "Sing" over MSN proclaiming it to be the next indie thing. While sing wasnt the most complicated song writing I have heard, no not Rob Pollard by far, but it sparked my interest. It sent me on the search for more. I managed to collect almost every song from the album before finally going out and picking up the cd version of the album. I rarely buy, mostly over cost, and lack of actual material, but this album has provided countless hours of enjoyment, taking the edge off work, and life in general. The style of the music varies but does seem to carry the same flowing feel thoughout, and is expeically well executed in Pipe Dreams, Flowers in the Window, and The Cage. Some agers in the indie scene might find the lyrics a bit dissapointing, and I will admit, they are sometimes flaky (Sing always seems like only 5 words, repeated over and over, though catchy). Really, its only major flaw is that it tries only as much as it needs to succeed. Its a cultured album, but not pretentious as some other relases can sometimes sound, such as some later Radiohead. If your looking for on of those albums which you can recline back in your chair, nod your head, and actually realx to music for once, then pick this one up. If your expecting something complicated, and startling like Guided By Voices however, you wont find it here. Give it a shot, and be the cool indie kid on your block today.
