3 stars Now, thatīs what I call improvement! Sleepy Sunīs sophmore release is a great leap forward when compared with Embrace, their debut of two years earlier. The songs are much more well structured, the arrangements are more concise and inventive and the the vocal department is a LOT better now. Even Bret Constantinoīs singing, so sloppy and irritating on Embrace, is now focused and, letīs say, melodic. And, of course, Rachel Fannanīs voice is beautiful as it was earlier on, but she is featured more proeminent at last.

There are some great use of acoustic guitars and the general sound now leans towards a more country/blues/folk approach, although the psychedelic noisy electric guitars are still present on every track, even if the barrage of feedback, distorted sounds, is better used here, and is under more control than before. Drums are still very 60īs styled too, along with those vintage fuzz tone guitars. But Feverīs best features are the new compositions: they are becoming quite original and interesting. The bandīs on their way to produce a very own sound and certainly this new CD shows a promising group growing fast.

Conclusion: although this kind of music is not one of my favorites, I cannot deny that Sleepy Sun has its charm and will certainly be quite appealing to the fans of early american pyschedelic rock. Iīm looking forward to hear what theyīll do next. I hope they keep developing their music as much. My personal taste keeps me from giving Fever a 4 star rating, but for their general improvement I canīt give it just a mere 3. 3,5 stars is more fitting. Fans of the style, donīt miss this one!
