4 stars My, my...strange to see these guys listed on this site. But when I think about it, it makes sense. Trippy, dreamy and above all strange (but mucho loved), Mercury Rev's newest album is their most symphonic and bombastic filled with Jonathan Donahue's soaring delicate about to crack vocals, odd sound effects, and just plain beautiful production, it's their most accesible album for newbies, especially for prog fans. Although, if you're expecting some kind of Gong/Ozric style album curtesy of the tag this band gets on this site, forget it. It's more in line with The Flaming Lips, or other American psych bands that use a simple pop structure and fill it to the brim with lovely keyboards, smatterings of crashing guitars and lyrics that are absurd and heart- breaking. Confused? Well, don't be. They're not the most thought-provoking band around, but damn they make some pretty music. Try them out. Go to their website and download some Mp3's. You'll fall under their spell in no time. I promise! A definate 4-star modern gem.
