Review by Chris S

4 stars Well Mercury Rev will never get accused of poor output that is for sure. This official 2008 release is in this reviewer's opinion a marked improvement on it's predecessor, The Secret Migration. Not a bad album that either but the production sound quality was off. Midnight Snowflake is another MR conceptual work, full of butterfly dreamscapes, trippy dandelion like psychedelic naturist themes weaving in and out of Jonathan Donahue's eerie vocals. In fact his vocal input is less here as the music this time takes a more dominant role. But in this release Less is definitely more and the restraint works a treat. MR seem to really enjoy the layered soundscapes they are delivering, great atmospheres all lending to the mystique, beautifully weird music. Along with Snowflake Midnight was a tandem digital release called Strange Attractor. This official album is the more concise and measureable musically. Try listen to the extended version of the single ' Senses On Fire' off their myspace website, great loops and climaxes. Other equally great songs are People Are So Unpredictable, October Sunshine and the Floyd like Runaway Raindrop. If anyone ever thought that acid was gone listen to the finale The Squirrel and I , holding on..and then letting go, heck just listen to the lyrics and you will find that the psychedlic fringe is alive and well. Mercury Rev make another excellent album, unusual they have so little influence on progressive archives but once drawn into their strange hypnotic world it is hard to resist their sound. Highly recommended.

4 stars "Snowflake Midnight" is the 7th full-length studio album by US alternative rock act Mercury Rev. The album was released through V2/Yep Roc in September 2008 and was accompanied by a free MP3 download companion album titled "Strange Attractor (2008)". To those who enjoy collectors items the vinyl edition of "Snowflake Midnight" includes a bonus LP which features the "Strange Attractor (2008)" album. "Snowflake Midnight" was produced by bassist Dave Friedmann. The album charted at number #52 in the UK charts which was actually the lowest chart position since Mercury Revīs third studio album "See You on the Other Side (1995)" which charted at number #108. The band has never made the charts in the US.

The music on the album is unmistakably the sound of Mercury Rev with Jonathan Donahueīs fragile and distinct sounding voice and vocal style as one of the characteristics. The big change since the last album has happened in the way the tracks are arranged. Thereīs lots of ambient soundscapes and what appears to be electronic beats (some are even dancable in nature). Weīre of course not talking techno beats here but thereīs a notable change in the rhythm section since the last studio album. I always felt that Mercury Rev featured a kind of retro sound but on this album they sound fresh and contemporary which could have been a complete failure but in this case ends up being a great success.

"Snowflake Midnight" features nine tracks, distributed over a 41:29 minutes long playing time. The album is divided into two parts by the ambient and atmospheric instrumental track "October Sunshine". The material are generally of a high quality. The two longest tracks "People are So Unpredictable (There's No Bliss Like Home)" with itīs 6:40 minutes long playing time and "Dream of a Young Girl as a Flower" with itīs 7:55 minutes long playing time are probably the most adventurous tracks on the album, but all tracks, even the most simple vers/chorus structured tracks, are quite intriguing.

The sound production is professional, clear, and generally soothing to the ears. The sound is relaxing and suits the atmospheric music well. Overall "Snowflake Midnight" is a high quality release by Mercury Rev and not necessarily what you would have expected from them at this point, but I salute the boldness of the stylistic change, and personally I think "Snowflake Midnight" is the bandīs best release up until then. A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

4 stars Mercury Rev created an extraordinarily lush and vivid soundworld on 'Snowflake Midnight'. This is far deeper into ambient psych than the band's previous offerings. The usual imaginative lyrics drop in and out and it manages the odd echo of the previous trio of their albums without ever soundin ... (read more)
