Editorial Reviews

Brighton-based indie prodigies The Electric Soft Parade return with their second studio album. 'The American Adventure' is the follow-up to their 2002 debut album 'Holes in the Wall', which received considerable critical plaudits, a Mercury Music Prize nomination, & the title of Q Best Newcomer. Recorded in Brighton, Cowfold & Chiswick, & mastered at Abbey Road, the nine tracks on the 'The American Adventure' find the band dirtying up their indie jangle with elements of U.S. alternative rock. Packed full of crystalline melodies & guitar driven hits, standout tracks include the Radiohead-esque 'Lights Out', the anthemic 'The Wrongest Thing in Town' & the storming Sonic Youth-influenced title track. Includes the single 'Things I've Done Before'. Copy Controlled. Arista. 2003.

I wasn't crazy about this record the first time through -- it felt unfocussed and rambling. But then it crept up on me the same way The Libertines did. In fact, rambling is part of its charm. These 9 cuts are the sound of English boys figuring out their place in the world -- if they sound confused, it's because they are. But guitars and drums and bass help them find their way, especially on the confessional "Things I've Done Before", and the lover's kiss off "Lights Out".

This album is beyond words. It needs to be heard by everyone everywhere very soon because it is an amazing album. It is probably the best album since Radiohead's OK Computer.
