4 stars A folkish post-punk album. Not a masterpiece into progressive music, but into post-punk, this would be put together with Joy Division and The Cure. Jedda by the Sea is the debut piece from the american band 17 Pygmies. The keyboards background are very intense on the album and when you find vocals, they are pretty catchy. The conqueror opening track brings a sweet female voice and a good feeling. Waiting to Arrive is the second track, maybe my favorite here. Great melody. The album flees from the pure post-punk with exotic and folk passages always present, most remarkable at the instrumental tracks Moment in Ceylon, Jerusalem and the wonderful Lazarus. The presence of violins contributes greatly to this. A great album from the 80s.
