Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2004-10-20 
Rock-a-teens. Really sharp pop from Georgia. Flaming Lips, Bowie feel, w/varied instruments but mostly guitar based w/nice piano, synth washes, perfectly blended. Excellent lyrics, male vocals, desperate, slightly off-key but not annoying (like so many vocalists of this type). All good.

1) mid-uptempo, epic sounding
2) uptempo, great lyric hook, slightly droning, fem backups
3) slower ballady piano heavy, ¾ minor
4) ¾ waltzy swingy
5) upbeat pop w/partridge family bouncy beat
6) ¾ midtempo, hooky epic chorus
7) slow and quieter w/acoustic guit, vibes, ¾ drums, fem vocals join
8) another triplet beat, fuzzy and driving, slow-midtempo
9) echoey guit, similar to rest
10) midtempo rock, melodic, nice break/bridge where things fall out
11) mid-uptempo rock, dense production
12) midtempo rock beat w/breaks
13) uptempo melody driven beat w/breaks, builds and falls
14) slow-midtempo epic rock
15) midtempo ¾, another epic feeling chorus
16) swingy uptempo w/burlesque The Fall feel
17) nice vibrato and echo, slow-mid ¾, great lyrics
