Top 100 Music Reviewer

I stumbled across this album by accident while browsing in an indie record store after work and bought a copy based on the 2 or so songs I heard them playing.

Needless to say I was not disappointed by the overall album. It's fantastically beautiful, intense yet intimate. It's one of those rare albums that doesn't really have a mood to it. It's both happy and sad at the same time. I cant explain it any better than that.

From opener 'Zebra' to the quietly jubilant 'Take Care' this album showcases Victoria Legrand's vocals, which are reminiscent of Mercury Rev's Jonathan Donahue and Elizabeth Fraser (of the now-defunct Cocteau Twins). While it is easy to pick up on the distinctive vocals, the music is quietly intense yet intimate at the same time.

'Norway', with its swooning keyboards, lush backing vocals and the delicate-as-crystals guitar break in the middle mark it out as possibly the best track on the album. Other highlights include the driving spine-chilling '10 Mile Stereo' which arguably features Victoria's best vocal on this album, the gorgeous melodies of 'Lover Of Mine' and the organ-backed optimism of 'Walk In The Park'.

This album, this band are unlikely to get the commercial success they deserve, but often some of the best albums are relatively unknown and unheard. This is destined to be one of those albums - a cult-classic as opposed to a best-seller.

A great selection of moving songs with Victoria's distinctive voice complementing the at times lush, at times sparse arrangements. The standouts are the immense 'Norway', the swirling '10 Miles Stereo' and the charmingly hypnotic 'Zebra'.
