When it's time to name the Song of the Year, list-makers who don't put "Home" in their Top Five may come to feel...sheepish.

That's because there's a medicine show coming your way, guaranteed to cure whatever ails you. And the best service someone like me can provide is to prepare you for it. That's simple: you're going to dance. Pretty much from minute one. With whomever you're with. With strangers. And with a massive, how-did-this happen grin on your face.

Maybe you could know a bit more. Like: there is no "Edward Sharpe" in the 9-to12-member band that that calls itself Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. Alex Ebert. the lead singer, looks like a guy who's just back from an ashram in India: underfed, long hair up in a bun, loose white shirt and pants, and bare feet. The female lead singer is so enthusiastic and awake --- a knockout in a thrift-shop dress, cardigan sweater and running shoes --- that you can't take your eyes off her. "A beautiful woman," Proust wrote, "is an invitation to a happiness she alone can fulfill." That is Jade Castrinos.

I love everything about this crew --- its large cast, its back story, and, most of all, its simple formula for happiness.

Okay, so the lyrics are mostly unabashed cornball ("Alabama, Arkansas/ I do love my Ma and Pa/ But not as much as I do love you"). I love how the song starts with a whistled echo of an Ennio Morricone theme from a Clint Eastwood western. I love the band and its soloists. Most of all, I'm a sucker for the refrain: "Home, let me come home/ Home is wherever I'm with you.

This is an incredibly good record.

I hesitated to buy it. How can a band produce something like "Home" and not have the rest of the record sound like repitition or duds? "Home" sounds like a perfect candidate for a "one-hit wonder" band.

But that is not the case.

This record is full of invention and wonder; originality combined with allusions to other masters. I hear so many sounds that make me go "who is that like?" and if I remember I think "no - it is reminiscent, but not a copy". And they just layer it all on you, over and over, track after track. Creating their own original experience.

Incredible. Thanks, Brooke, for turning me onto this.

Oh - and the car radio or YouTube or little things stuck in your ears do not do justice. You need to hear it play (loud) where the drum pounds through your chest and the piano rings in your ears and the horns blare in your face and you dance and smile.

Format: Audio CD
I picked this album up on a whim at my local record store when they were playing it. The songs Jade, Home, and Desert Songs. Jade grabbed my attention, Home grabbed my wallet, and Desert Song closed the deal.

Unfortunately, it really seems that those songs are the best the album offers, which isn't necessarily bad, but it isn't great either. I had really loved Home and was hopeful that there would be further tracks that worked in that duet / call-response type style of that song, but there isn't. It is a 5-star track and among my favorite songs of the past couple of years.

The album on the whole doesn't start off bad, and it seems to hold up fairly well through the first half. They are a band that puts off a vibe remeniscent of the late 60's. Where I think things fall apart a bit is after the three songs listed above where the overall tone starts to darken. While I have nothing against darker music this tone slows the album down and contrasts with that vibe. Listening closer, this problem really only shows up in a few tracks, but the pace slows down across that latter half that unless you listen to the songs individually, it feels a bit drawn-out and depressing.

Overall, I do like the album, and even if you are not willing to try the album, the song Home is really worth getting as an MP3. This is the band's first album, so I feel that if they keep together, they will probably only improve. In the mean time, use caution if purchasing this album based on the song Home (or perhaps even any other track you may have heard)... they won't be necessarily representative of the whole album.

I heard the song "Home" on a mix tape and really liked it. It was fun and sweet and had an intricate simplicity I really enjoyed. I got the full album and it starts off amazing. Lots of interesting and catchy tunes. About half way through though, this album loses all steam. It gets thin and boring and somber. The happiness that made me pick the album up disappeared. I found myself wondering how much longer the songs were because they were just dragging on forever. To me, this would be a great album if it was cut in half. It feels like the first chunk is fun and original, and the latter is just unneeded filler.

That the vinyl is better than the other formats is no big surprise since sonically those versions (CD & MP3) suck. True, this is lo-fi & an homage to the sound of 60s. This set is mastered by Doug Sax, so likely it's as good as it can get. The vinyl does still sound compressed though, I imagine because the recording is, not the mastering per se. There is some greater detail & separation thankfully. Big bottom end. The vinyl is not quiet, but I have yet to give it a thorough cleaning.
