My wife and I went to a Twilight Singers (Greg Dulli from the Afghan Whigs) concert in Nov. 06 w/ special guest Mark Lanegan. The Stars of Track and Field opened. And while the Twilight Singers were good, SOTAF totally blew the Twilight Singers away. I had no idea who they were and were thinking they were a cross between The Postal Service and Sunny Day Real Estate. Of course it turns out they've toured with members of Sunny Day previously. The Postal Service comparison is due to some of the electronic elements in the music, Sunny Day Real Estate due to the structure of the songs, moments of intensity and moments of quiet. The songs all build into a crescendo or climax that is incredible.

I picked up the album at the concert when it was with a very minor label and have listened to it extensively. The one weak track is With You due to a weak chorus and ending. Every other track is strong, especially Centuries, Movies of Antarctica, Real Time, Arithmatik, and Say Hello.

Do try to check them out live. These guys are incredible.

I wish I could have given this CD 4.5 stars. I absolutely love it. I was unfamiliar with SOTAF prior to hearing them at SXSW. Their performance was very moving, and the recorded representation is equally beautiful. I had read a few reviews that compared them to other bands that I like, but was surprised at who they actually made me think of after hearing the CD.

Simon and Garfunkel.

Yeah, that's right. The vocals reminded me a lot of classic S&G harmonies.

Hello darkness my new friend :)

There isn't really any need to mention various other bands that their music may remind you of. Just know that all of those other bands are great.

This CD is a wonderful listen. Very powerful in all the right places. It's kinda dark (in a good way), kind of peaceful, and full of imagery.

I got the CD, plus a t-shirt, for .05 (yes, five cents) off of a well know online auction website. Plus shipping (which was still an insane deal).

Although some of my friends/bandmates don't share my love for this CD.....they're all lame, pretentious dorks.....so I feel confident in my declaration.

Being a guitarist, I love the guitar work on this CD. It is soaring in places and minimal in others. Quite tasteful in my humble opinion.

I bought this cd marked down at a local record store and couldn't be more impressed. The timing of the harmony within the bridges and choruses are f'n perfect. Check out #8 "Say Hello". I love it, but I'll probably just burn a copy for myself and give the other to someone special :!

Amazing album. If you don't own this, you are cheating yourself out of pleasure. I own about 2,000 audio CDs, and this is easily in my top 50.
