4 stars Widely acclaimed by critics and most fans as their best album, although I disagree. It is still a great album and the introduction of bow saws make for some weird sounding psychedelia. If anything Deserter's Songs set the mood for the epic All Is dream follow on. ' Holes' is a great starter to the album with the usual trippy, symphonically weird Donahue and Grashopper setting the moods.If anything I would say this is the most ' un prog like' album from Mercury Rev as they enter the realm of easy listening at times on catchy tunes like 'Goddess on the Highway' and ' Hudson Line'. Highlights for me would have to be the opener ' Holes', ' Opus40' and the disturbingly haunting ' Funny Bird'. Excellent overall and highly recommended.

3 stars Only after several listens do the ghosts of "Deserter's Songs" past start to appear: the hallucinatory Syd Barrett- like lyrics, Suzanne Thorpe's ever present flute, and the occasional weird noise that initially doesn't sound all that weird, like a musical saw or a harp or a theremin. It's a lush release of strange and interesting sounds blended together sometimes rather symphonically into 12 songs that will seep into your head and have you subconsciously singing right along. Instrumentally this album covers a nice wide range hitting multiple genres along the way. There's cuts of opera, jazz, synth'd out enjoyment, fairytale soundtracks, all established as works created by MERCURY REV themselves. The vocals are simple, saddening, dreamy and quite pleasant. Overall a very cool album with some excellent dream state music for your mind to mull over. A very creative album .

3 stars Deserter's Songs is the fourth full-length studio album by US experimental rock act Mercury Rev. While the two first albums by the band Yerself Is Steam (1991) and Boces (1993) held a lot of promise with their psychadelic alternative rock style it wasnīt until the third album by the band See You On The Other Side (1995) that I understood why people hold Mercury Rev in such high regard. That album saw the band develop a more melodic and orchestrated sound and fortunately thatīs also the direction theyīve decided to follow on Deserter's Songs. Thereīs a three year gap between See You On The Other Side and Deserter's Songs which ( as far as Iīve been able to find out) is because of the lurk warm reception that See You On The Other Side got when it was released. Lead singer/ guitarist Jonathan Donahue alledgedly went down with a depression because of it and on top of that it probably took some time to recover from the commercial disappointment.

This time around the music is even more melodic and the orchestral parts are much more integrated into the songs than they were on See You On The Other Side. You can say that the circle is closed in terms of completing Mercury Revīs new sound. Thereīs still a few psychadelic leftovers in the sound which is great for the diversity and does give the music a progressive touch. Donīt be fooled into believing that this is a very progressive album though, there is a reason why this band is placed in the prog-related catagory. This is basically a melodic alternative rock album with orchestral parts. And a very good one at that I might add.

The musicianship is excellent. The smooth and pleasant vocals from Jonathan Donahue suit the music well. The rythm section is tight and itīs hard not to be impressed with all the vintage keyboard sounds, piano, Bowed saw and flute that colours the music. The orchestral parts are really good too and gives the music its special identity.

The production is excellent. Warm and pleasant.

One of the biggests assets on Deserter's Songs is that it is an instantly likable album but that might be its biggest flaw too though. After 10 listens thereīs not many surprises left but if that doesnīt bother you and you just enjoy melodic alternative rock with orchestral parts this is a recommendable album. After the first couple of listens I was gonna give this album a 4 star rating but my enthusiasm has cooled a bit after repeated listens and I will give the album a BIG 3 star rating. A great album though and a good place to start if youīre new to the band.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR RPI
3 stars Deserter's Songs was highly acclaimed in the UK on its release in 1998 and was even named NME Album of the Year, although it seems to be little known on ProgArchives and has only received a handful of reviews here. I always feel as if I'm at the movies when I listen to kooky indie rockers Mercury Rev, which maybe isn't that odd as their early recordings were created as soundtracks for experimental student films. There are three instrumental tracks on Deserter's Songs that sound as if they could have been composed for the likes of David Lynch's Eraserhead, and ENDLESSLY sounds like backing music from Edward Scissorhands. This is a typically quirky song with weird celestial choral effects and a Silent Night flute motif. On the subject of instrumentation on the album, the list of personnel reads like a swinger's lil' black book and features numerous guest appearances including contributions from members of The Band. Every instrument known to man seems to get used on the album, including one or two improvised ones such as bowed saw.

Overall, Deserter's Songs is an album of the middling sort although there are a few outstanding tracks such as the soaring pop ballad GODDESS ON A HIWAY that features clever homonymous word play. The ghostly-sounding HOLES is a densely orchestrated song about little moles. Ahhhh! If I may borrow from the song's own lyrics it's a 'big blue open sea' of a song, and is as beautiful a piece of music as you'll hear anytime soon. TONITE IT SHOWS reminds me a little of Barclay James Harvest's Moongirl, which in its turn sounds a bit like Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds I suppose. OPUS 40 shows a clear Pet Sounds influence and it contrasts sharply with the screaming guitar of the heavily psychedelic THE FUNNY BIRD. Lead singer Jonathan Donahue's vocals are treated with phasing or some such on the latter song and his natural singing voice is a bit of an acquired taste. Mercury Rev is a band that's well worth checking-out, but bear in mind that the mp3/stream here on ProgArchives isn't all that representative of the music on this and later albums.

4 stars This was the start of the Mercury Rev I like best. It's dreamy, unworldly and strangely beautiful.
