While I haven’t gotten through the entire album yet, the new Silversun Pickups album is excellent so far. A lot more focused than their debut, less ethereal and less swirly/shoegaze guitar. That may be terrible for some of their fans, but I think it works for them. (NOTE: because I haven’t listened to it enough, I reserve the right to completely reverse or change my opinion without good explanation.)
Here is the next installment of my 1000 Minutes project.
Dave will probably disagree with my choice off of this album. In truth, it was between this and “Animals + Insects” for me, but I listened to this song so frequently when I got the album that I had to give it the nod.
Maybe The Stills will never get back to the beauty they created on this album, but I sure hope so. I really really enjoyed that album, and their subsequent efforts have only elicited a “meh” or two from me.
