Editorial Reviews

Long-awaited 2008 studio album by UK indie darlings Cranes, whose creative output has spanned over fifteen years and nine studio albums. The duo that became Cranes can look back at a body of work that split into two distinct eras. The music from the '90s had a peculiar intensity, which seemed incongruous at the time. Their early fans included John Peel, the legendary Joy Division producer Martin Hannett and Robert Smith, who asked them to open for The Cure on many an international tour.The new album's otherworldly tonal beauty will continue to see them existing outside of the mainstream, slightly disconnected but able to offer a very beautiful, one-of-a-kind vision of life in the twenty first century. 11 tracks. Dadaphonic.

The Cranes are my all time favorite band and this release measures up. I should say I was incredibly dissappointed and annoyed at "Future Songs" In general I have no respect or appreciation of electronica....That said, I was much relieved with this album, although it is at times annoying in it's electronic tapestry, an introspective etherial atmosphere is generated and somehow alludes to their earliest most jarring music. I don't know if a casual listener would even pick it up, but some of these borderline lullabies are deeply cathartic, disturbing beautiful and inspiring. I kind of feel like they're pulling a Houdini...I'm baffled that I like this as much as I do. "Wonderful Things" in particular I find astounding, It's a quiet song with very little dynamic range and no percussion, it's all soft sounds, and Allison is singing soothingly and maternally close, yet somehow this comes across to me like some of their most epic, disturbing and percussive songs from "Wings of Joy" I hear the rage, the sorrow, the fury and the frenzy...I can hear where the Thunderous drum shuffles should be... I wonder if I'm the only one who hears this....Collecting stones is very simular in that reguard, and in itself is minimalistically georgeous, there's so much yearning in Allison's voice, and would fit nicely on any of their releases. "Move Along" is another percussionless one that seems like an odd throw back, it's pretty mellow with goofy electric "fairy soap bubble" sounds, yet it has a weird slow dynamic build reminicent of "adrift" which intead of culmunating in a crescendo of percussion and strings, does it with one note completing a complex digital progression.....Houdini indeed! While I would've prefered hearing these songs with traditional instruments, it's still quite satisfying to this long time fan.Read more ›

You aren't too deep into this album before you can hear the production values on this CD are quite a bit better than what has gone before. There are a couple of top drawer selections on here. I own and enjoy most of the Cranes' output and any fan will be pleased. The only caveat is this CD is very short in length, shorter than 40 minutes, or imagine, in width, comparable to that of Thumbelina's ring finger, but we take what we can get.

Basically, you upload this album to your selected portable music device and wander around deserted urban spaces at night. The Cranes have always been masters of working with an economy of means; here, they make electronic music that is simple without being simplistic. This is mood music that manages to transcend the cliches of 'down-tempo' and 'chill'; the overall effect is similar to watching small bright lights winking on and off in a cold nocturnal cityscape.
