When The Night Calls It Quits
ByMark J. Bohrer "Beatles Fan" (New England, USA) - See all my reviews
When we look back, this will be seen as a milestone album. I don't say this lightly. June 22, 2011
This review is from: When The Night Calls It Quits (MP3 Music)
This is one of those rare albums where every song is different and interesting. Almost every song has an original lyrical, musical or sonic idea. Best of all, the songs all sound "organic". By organic, I mean that the music and lyric are one piece, where the music and the words effortlessly make a greater whole. There aren't too many bands that can do this.
Start by listening to any of these: Blind, Deeply Sympathize, Meet My Friend, Cheers to the Sound, New Morning (a long one that has a gem of a song hidden in the 2nd half).
Well worth getting, and gets better with each listen. These guys are great songwriters and instrumentalists. All around, kudos to Eclyptic! These guys should be famous!
