2 stars There There!

Another single taken from their 2003 studio album "Hail to the Thief" but a little more interesting than "Go to Sleep" which I've previously reviewed. This single CD features also 3 songs, and a total time of 13 minutes.

The first song is of course "There There", you already know it, it is an excellent song actually opening with some drums work and little by little progressing, the guitars appear and later the vocals, the song is very special because it is catching your attention while it's playing, the last part is exceptional with some kind of eruption, one of the best HttT songs without a doubt, and in my opinion an excellent choice to make it a single.

The next song is entitled "Paperbag Writer" is an experimental song, and very attractive to my ears, it has some kind of electronic trip-hop elements, it has a violin sound though I believe it was created with synths, the vocals sound "hidden" I mean there is a effect that provokes it, hope you get my point, then the song makes a little stop and seconds later starts again, it has a dark sound on it, very nice.

The last one is "Where Bluebirds Fly" which I first discover in their Com Lag EP, and which I really like; following the same electronic line as the previous song, this track is also very experimental and interesting, the atmosphere and mood created is awesome, it's a pity that it lasts only 4 minutes because I really enjoy it, it does not have lyrics, but it does have some vocals here and there, listen to it with headphones, you will be pleased.

This single album is better than Go to Sleep, is more interesting and I would like to give it 3 stars, but anyway I believe it is also just for fans, so 2 stars it is a more accurate rating.

Enjoy it!
