Product Description

Amazon.ca

Ever since Boise, Idaho, trio Built to Spill emerged on national radar with its major label release Perfect from Now On (Warner), its earlier recordings are infused with a certain prediscovery mystique. On 1994's There's Nothing Wrong with Love, the roots of Built to Spill's shimmering orchestral arrangements are present, but with a distinctly tattered edge. Frontman Doug Martsch bounds from moody balladry to primal screams, often in the same songs. Add the crunch of Brett Nelson's guitar, and you wipe the sheen off 12 songs that would be just plain pretty, if not for their garage rock soul. --Nick Heil

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome July 26 2008
Format:Audio CD
True or false: Doug Martsch is the Peter Frampton of 1990s indie? Sure, he might not have the hair, the tight pants, or the voice box, but it's difficult to think of another soul more worthy of resident guitar god; maybe J Mascis, but he never brought the pop side like King Framp. That's the side most in evidence on There's Nothing Wrong with Love, before Martsch started bringing the sprawl in spades. Humble, wry song-tales about heads-up-seven-up, Albertson's stir-fry, and Bowie-hating stepdads abound, while earnest tracks like "Twin Falls" and "Big Dipper" set the pace for the entire Northwestern indie-pop scene. Ooo baby I love the way that dark cello elbows its way into the wishlist of "Car", the way Doug's craypaper voice lends a layer of giddiness to the slack romantics of "Reasons", the way the louds and softs of "Some" still pack a wallop. If you feel like I do, you think Perfect is closer to perfect, but there's very little wrong with There's Nothing Wrong with Love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Note: this record can hold many memories. June 7 2004
By Laurie
Format:Audio CD
I love this record. Not haphazord love, but like you would love your favorite teddy bear. It is full of sheer emotion, but avoids being too sappy or too slow. I love the innocence of it- which is fitting that I discovered the band in my junior year of high school, right before I was about to come out into the world. For me, there are a few lines in the song "Cleo" that sum up my entire junior and senior years of high school-
"Living in the womb
Have to come out soon
Have to meet the sun and moon and..."

4.0 out of 5 stars Much more focused - almost brilliant. April 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
Except for some slower spots, this record, their last independent record, puts it all together for Built to Spill. It's a guitar lovers record, and the songwriting keeps improving. Definitely worth seeking out and blasting!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't deny this brilliant album March 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
I live in a town (or village) of 800 people, and I only have one other friend that I can even talk about music with. We both got into Built to Spill independantly, but I am far and away the bigger fan, and I believe it's because I own this album and I won't let him borrow it for fear of being without it (to be fair, he usually forgets to return borrowed CDs for weeks or months). When trying to promote the BTS sound, I often describe it as Neil Young on vocals with Jimi Hendrix playing guitar and Bobby Dylan writing the lyrics. Anyway, I didn't get into BTS until Ancient Melodies of the Future, and I bought this because of a magazine recommendation. Like many other reviewers have mentioned, this was almost a life-changing experience for me. It is one of my top three CDs to listen to stoned, along with Led Zepp III and Miles Davis's Kind of Blue. While the whole album is awesome, my favorite tracks are Car, Distopian Dream Girl and Stab. Buy this album and a few copies for your friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful album that will stay with me forever. Feb. 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
I am a huge BTS fan. I have seen them live several times, and I own most all of their albums. This is my first online review--I thought it best to start with the album that has the most personal effect on me.
TNWWL is, in short, a masterpiece. I hate that term--it implies something academic and studied. On the other hand, it conveys the awesome power of this set of songs.
Production--Phil Ek is a mastermind. If you look at his work with BTS and the new Shins album you'll see what I mean. TNWWL is very quiet with minimal studio trickery. There are numerous spots on the album where you will hear vocal mistakes or off-kilter recording levels. Those are part of the genius! The last track ("preview of next BTS album") is hilarious.
Songwriting--Dug is never better than on TNWWL. The songs are mostly intimate and very autobiographical. There is a definite difference between this album and Keep It Like a Secret or Perfect From Now On. Later in his career Dug gets more and more vague. It almost as though he changed songwriting styles. I love PFNO and KILAS, but TNWWL is on a different plane. The song Cleo is amazing--it's told from an unborn baby's perspective. I also love Distopian Dream Girl, Twin Falls, and Car.
Playing--organic and raw. They aren't as loud or as feedback oriented as they would get in subsequent albums...but they rock all the same. I would pay close attention to the acoustic songs and the string arrangements (again--Ek is brilliant!).
Value--there isn't one song on this album I skip over. It's awesome that BTS still plays many of these songs in concert. A friend asked me to recommend a good first album by BTS to buy. I told him Perfect From Now On. That album rocks harder and is more likely to show the musical force behind BTS. I was a little selfish in making this recommendation--I wanted to keep the lyrical beauty and grace of this album to myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you amazon reviewers!!! Jan. 14 2004
By Jim
Format:Audio CD
I was recently viewing other reviews for another amazing band Death Cab, and in one of the replies I noticed someone mentioning this band. They reccommended and praised that the new Death Cab album could be almost compared to Built to Spill. Death Cab, being one of my favorite bands, led me into a search for this band. After searching on Kazaa I was immediately barraged with amazing music and beats I have never heard before. The first song I listened to was Joyride. What an amazing song! If all Built to Spill tracks are this beautiful I can assure you I will soon be a huge fan!!!
