It's not just good ... it's Arias-good. It's like taking the inspired creativity of the Spoons' early work and adding 30 years of experience and maturity. Great work by everyone involved.
It might be the best work the Spoons have produced. It's a significant accomplishment.
While certain songs for me stand out and would fit in perfectly on today's AC/Alternative radio - Imperfekt, End of Story, B Movie, Star Maps, and the lead single, You Light Up, this album plays best when listening from start to finish as a whole.
So put on your headphones or earbuds, pop this one on, and spend the evening decoding the many, many fun codes on the CD's artwork. When was the last time you got this interactive with an album?
The album takes pieces from Arias and Symphonies and Talkback, and comes back with a modern sounding pop record.
All the songs are great. My favourites would include "Breaking In", "Imperfekt", "Star Maps" (a great rocker) and the really catchy number from Sandy, "Escape with you". Sandy's voice is so sultry that you think she's singing directly to you:) Great tune and possibly the catchiest song on the record. It would have been nice if she had a few more songs on the album. Maybe the next one?
"End of Story" would fit perfectly on the Arias album. Its that good!!
"Closing Credits" has a "Trade Winds" feel on the drum parts and is a great closer to the record.
My only qualm would be them not using a real drummer on the record. Being a drummer for over 23 years, it would have been nice to hear an acoustic drum kit over these songs on the record.
Overall though, a great effort and one that shows just how talented this band is.
Gord and Sandy, my hats off to you:) Great effort!!
