Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
the Postal Service track alone is worth the purchase, but once you hear the _flow_ of how seemless this album is, it'll make infinite repeate on your favorite player.
other stand outs are the shins, the stills, death cab for cutie (acoustic), broken social scene (yeah!), and new comers the legends.
if you've heard of any of these bands, and want to check out more like them this album is a great introduction to some of the coolest artists happening at the moment. one could argue that this album, in its own way presents a perfect taste of the new "alternative" scene.
Garden State and Wicker Park are great companion records.
just buy it. you'll love it.
So, if anybody is interested:
"Sálfraedingur", "Ég Átto Gráa Aesku", "Ég Sleppi Thér Aldrei" by Jóhann Jóhannsson
Mum - I Can't Feel My Hand Anymore, It's Alright, Sleep Still
The White Stripes - Good to Me
Tito Puente - Ran Kan Kan
Stereophonics - I Miss You Now
Clue to Kalo - This Dies over Distance
It's true that it's a good soundtrack to get relaxed with, listening to it at home, lying on your couch but it can also be desperating because of the introspective aura that surrounds it. "All I Do" by +/- is simply haunting, one of those blurring melodies that rises slowly, not arriving to a sonic crescendo, but bringing tears to my eyes everytime I listen to it.
It's this ethereal quality, this moody and hypnotic essence that really makes this cd stand out. It's a long trip, closing at nearly 70 minutes and until you get used to it you might start thinking that you're still on track #7. At least that's what happened to me, but I suddenly felt the urge to repeat it. Coldplay's cover of "The Scientist" closes perfectly the album, and being the original version one of my favourite songs ever, I was delighted with Napolitano and Lohner's approach. As with the original, I love this song not for the inherent sadness it has but for the strange calm it gives you.
Definetely, one of the best albums of the year, no matter 2004 or 2005. Do yourself a favour and discover it.
