Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2002-10-03 
Quite the amalgam of all things dark and twangy and lush and sexy, dramatic, with strange pop elements. I hear strains of Nick Cave and Tindersticks, yet unlike most derivitive bands of that ilk these guys have a genuinely different take and feel, quite original. Pianos, strange noises, no overbearing vocals. Loungy in places, swingy in most, twangy in others. Pop songs emerge later in the spirit of Bowie and such. I am having true difficulty trying to find the right words to describe this: probably a first for my verbose self. So that in itself says a lot. Cool as all hell, all songs good.

1) super brief snippet
2) samba minor sexy feel 3) swingy tribal w/ twangy guit
4) swingy loungy feel
5) triplet minor feel with distant vocs and strange synth noise
6) 60’s bouncey pop almost, different from previous
7) slower minor sad ballad feel
8) synth pop feel, glammy
9) more dreamlike, plodding feel, spacey
10) ambient plodding piano minimal trippy dark
11) waltzy arpeggio bluesy soaring ballad
12) swingy rocky beat tempered with dramatic minor feel
13) pop feel, Roxy Music guits and glammy 70’s new wave air almost but not
14) flangey beatles’esque vocs, strings, maracas
15) slow, dark, piano, reflective, somehow twangy
