Perhaps some will think I am using the word "geniuses" loosely, but I'm not. Polvo are a truly incredible band. At first, one's ear may hear the dissonance and nothing else, but with time the underlying melodies come through, the non-structure reveals its structure, and what at first seems like chaos becomes an enjoyable listen. This album is classic Polvo - great melodies, guitar work to blow the mind of any six-string geek, and a sense that these guys really care about what they're doing. It's a shame that these guys are no longer around. Do yourself a favor and buy this album, along with all other Polvo releases. It's a higher quality of music.

When i first heard this album i didn't quite understand it, but it seems that polvo have totally broken the rules when it comes to making music. The guitarists never play the same guitar line as each other and their arrangements are very strange. They do (strangely) have a strange sense of melody and the songs are very good. I think that this album will be appreciated most by those who play guitar as it will broaden their horizons. There is only one problem with this album, it's not long enough - but maybe that adds to the mistique.

Cor-Crane Secret find's everyone's favorite out of tune indie band giving us another masterpiece. This is the type of record you put on and leave on, not skipping any songs. Every song is amazing and the intro to vibracobra is sure to pull you in. Unfortunately, this band is no longer with us but great albums like this and their other early work will always remain as fresh and important as when they were initially released.

This band is notoriously overlooked. I've never met anyone else who listened to them. So I made it a point to show all my friends Polvo. No one was disappointed. They sound like Middle Eastren-Punk Rock cooked on a plate of fried rice. And your eating it while Thurston Moore sets his chia pet on fire. That the best way I can describe it. Unique to atmosphere of the time. I think they formed in 1989-90? Not sure. Polvo's hometown is Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Other notable bands from their area are Picasso Trigger and Superchunk. But anyway, I picked up all their records. Even got a copy of Cor-Crane Secret on vinyl. It was worth it. I even found their debut ep in a used cd bin. It's great. Too bad people sell it on here for $100. I got it for $5. Lucky buy. Anyway, Cor-Crane Secret is their second record, their first full length. It's an essential piece of my music collection.

Polvo is the exemplar of 1990's indie rock. Noisy, intricerate guitar work that uses loopy time signitures with a groovin backbeat. I also enjoy how they encorporate alternative tunings. Very interesting.
