Falling Up "Fangs"

After an excellent release from Falling Up in 2007, my anticipation for their next album was overwelming. Could they carry on from Captiva those powerful guitars and addictive anthem choruses? I had to find out.

I kept waitng for it, the breakout from the almost dreary to...well, basically Captiva. Was it to be? The first two songs I listened to seemed to just drag their feet, yes I've only made it through the first two. Unfair? Um, sure.

Streams Of Woe At Acheron is quite good. A bit more upbeat and very catchy. Magician Reversed, Golden Arrows, and The King's Garden (almost a "Chronicles of" series) all have basically the same feel and tempo to them...quiet and somewhat contemplative.

Okay, so I don't have a lava lamp, but I should have for Panic And Geo-Primaries. It could have completed the mood...you get the picture. A throwback to something for sure.

The Moonn And Sixpence has got some great guitars and some interesting pleading vocals. This is one of those songs that will grow on me, as well as the next. The more upbeat and lively Goddess Of The Dayspring, Am I. This has some of that "oh, I have to listen to that again."

The Sidewinder Flux has a feeling of floating in outer space and out of control. In some way makes me think of 2001: A Space Odessey.

Track eleven, The Chilling Alpine Adventure, is one of those I probably won't be adding to my playlist. It's not chilling nor an adventure, unfortunately.

Swimming Towards Propellers is the final track and a good one. Contemplative and some gentle keys makes a nice exit.

Although the sound of this album may be somewhat subdued, it should get high marks for creativity and execution. The album plays out like a storybook and it's brilliant in that respect.

Play track three again, you'll love it.
