Still Recovering [Open Thread]

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at May 3, 2006 5:08 PM

Late for obvious reasons. I think I am done with Coachella posts for the moment, but fellow party members Mason and Lemming have also blogged about it.

Built To Spill: You In Reverse: Built To Spill are pretty big in indie-rock, but I mostly know them through their (excellent) 1997 album Perfect From Now On. Their newest effort sounds somewhat different, sped-up and less epic. The propensity for long guitar solos remains, however. There's nothing wrong with this new style, and it works spectacularly well on the album's best track, "Conventional Wisdom". However, while the rest of the CD is a good listen it doesn't quite reach the heights of their earlier work. Rating: 3.5/5

This series of posts (including Lemming's and mine) has become ridiculously meta (which will one day be accepted as a legal noun...).
