Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2002-05-29
Finely crafted pop, just about perfect. And that’s saying a lot these days when everyone thinks they’re a pop genius. This is the real deal. Like Rock*A*Teens at their best, or… tough to compare, but arouses feelings that the greats like 70’s Bowie and Eno do. Male vocs are reminiscent of Howe Gelb, sorta understated. But the music, guitar led but not centered is creative and doesn’t rely on anything trite or familiar. This is the shit! All songs really good.

1) minimal electric piano slowly builds w/ other instruments swirling, to a mid paced heavy beat w/ epic pop melodic vocs
2) super cool, the way smart pop is supposed to be
3) simple beatles’ish bouncy beat pop
4) mellow acoustic guit + trippy peaceful synth brilliant intro to upbeat super dreamy pop
5) quiet tower bells transform into quiet pretty guit chords that turns into a heavy rock beat, epic and big as hell
6) heart stopping percussion onslaught contrasted by super neato epic pop, sheesh!!!
