Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

You may find hints of the P.M. Dawn past here--soft-spoken raps, dreamy vocals, and mellow grooves--but with song titles like "Misery in Utero," "I Hate Myself for You," and "Screaming at Me," you probably won't be set adrift on memory bliss. It wouldn't be P.M. Dawn without the usual musings on the universe and musical innovation, and J.C. (the production brains of the duo) doesn't disappoint, swerving from spare, acoustic ballads to slinky electronica with barely a breath in between. There's even a decidedly Beatlesque influence, especially on "Hale-Bopp Regurgitations," an apology for all the sins in the world (including the shooting of John Lennon). If this deliciously conceived concept album is any indication, it sounds like the birth of Prince Be's son may have brought him happiness, but not without a little apprehension. Fans of the psychedelic duo will xprobably approach this record with the same mixed emotions. --Rebecca Wallwork

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, underrated album April 20, 1999
Format:Audio CD
P.M. Dawn are back--and not a moment too soon. After 3 long years, P.M. Dawn fans are treated to a brand new album, with a decidedly darker edge. What some people may not realize is, their music has always been dark, in a way. Forget Trent Reznor--Prince Be is music's real tortured soul. And it is really evident on 'Dearest Christian..'. You're lured into his psyche with the jazz-lounge first cut, 'Music For Carnivores'--a brilliant track with their trademark vocal harmonies. Things get rocking on track 2, 'Art Deco Halos', as guitarist Cameron Greider is allowed to cut loose with some heavy riffs. As I stated, this is a dark album, and it's no more apparent on 'Misery in Utero'--one of the saddest songs I think I've ever heard. But don't let all this talk of darkness turn you off--there's some tradional P.M.D moments on the cd as well--the rasta-flavored 'No Further Damage' and the moving 'Faith in You' among them. 'Hale-Bopp Regurgitations' is one of the most profound musically philosophical statements in a long time. P.M. Dawn has yet to completely disappoint me, and I would definitely recommend this album. I would also recommend checking out the 'Senseless' soundtrack, which features two tracks 'Gotta Be Movin On Up' and 'Perfect For You', the former of which has some of the most recent rapping in years from Prince Be. And the latter I dare say is one of their greatest ballads ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Has there ever been an album like this before? July 18, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is they're last full length commercial release. They released a thousand or so copies directly to fans of another album. But they were forced to stop because of sampling/legal issue's. Dearest Christian... is beautifully honest and very well crafted smooth pop music. Original lyric's, beautifully arranged music. I wouldn't say it is dark...just very sad at times. But there is so much that breaks through that keeps it from ever becoming dark. The album ends with Prince Be talking softly and candidly with his son whom is trying to pull him away from his work in the studio... "Are you finished with you're la la's da da?" ... "yeah, I'm finished with my la la's." very sad ending. All the stores I've checked over the last year or so have even pulled they're P.M. Dawn tags from the cd racks. If this is they're last effort. It was they're best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Out with a bang December 21, 2004
By Kyle
Format:Audio CD
Whereas PM Dawn's music had in the past been sad and insightful, their 1998 (and likely last) studio album is downright depressed, if not angry. The songs sound different, too. The stunning opener, featuring the London Philharmonic Orchestra, is like nothing the duo had ever put out before. The singles "I Had No Right" and "Faith In You" are moving stories of loving regret and unshakeable companionship and understanding. Overall, though, the theme of the record is disappointment, seemingly in everything (himself, relationships, society, the record business). "Hale-Bopp Regurgitations" is a clever poke at the world, with a lot of '90s nostalgia. Harmonies and acoustic guitar/piano accompaniment help make a lot of these songs feel very intimate, almost coffee-house performances (notably "Screaming At Me," and the heartbreaking "Broken." For sheer innovation, check out "Untitled," a nearly 9-minute opus consisting of 3 completely different songs intertwined.

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting better with each album. November 7, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Being a huge fan of their last album, i couldn't wait for "Dearest Christian...". The first time i listened to it, i thought "what the heck are they doing?"...but after a few listens, i know what they are doing. If you listen to their albums in order, you'll be able to hear the musical and lyrical progression/evolution. Going from thinking "there's not one song i like on here" to "i can't stop listening to this CD" is a strong statement. This album has what other albums hope to have, VARIETY. there's something for everyone, and PM dawn fans will really appreciate it. Though there's no one song that stands out as a catalyst, this is an ALBUM...a collection of songs and philosophies. ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY gave it an A-...i'll go a notch higher...A.

5.0 out of 5 stars A relatively obscure CD that deserves its place in music September 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
First off, if you're not a PM Dawn fan-you should be. Sublime lyrics, harmonies, and melodies. Most people know PM Dawn for "Set adrift on Memory Bliss", "Paper Doll", or "I'd die without you", and that's about it. A shame. It's a shame because people are missing out on one of the best artists of our time. They continue to make albums like this---quality pieces of work. Stay away from "Art Deco Halos" and "Hale-bopp regurgitations" which sound like they belong on a Beatles album from the 60's, and you'll enjoy EVERYTHING ELSE. The clear masterpiece on the album isn't "Being so not for you", the single that was released, it's "Untitled"...an 8 minute, 36 second EXPERIENCE.

5.0 out of 5 stars brothers from another planet July 4, 2001
Format:Audio CD
OK, half the time, I have no idea what their lyrics or song titles mean. They've got that new age spirituality thing going on and it's kind of hard to keep up. But their music is constantly innovative and provides some of the best pure pop bliss around. "Dearest Christian" is yet another unappreciated gem from PM Dawn. "So Not For You" was its only radio hit and it's so not the best song on the CD. The opening "Music for Carnivores" is a gem, with its rolling synth bass and layered vocals. "Art Deco Halos" is a loopy, guitar-driven pop-rock ode to the desire we all have to be someone else sometimes. The ballad "Screaming at Me" features beautiful acoustic guitars and vocal arrangements. The message: We're too hard on ourselves. My favorite track, "No Further Damage," combines a summer-ish reggae lope, a rolling bassline and a way-cool electric guitar break to detail how being in love with someone can be troublesome. "Hale Bopp Regurgitations" is typical bizarre-o PM Dawn - Beatles-esque, hard to figure out what they're talking about but unbelievably catchy. Other CD highlights include "I Hate Myself for You" and "Misery in Utero." It's too bad PM Dawn is so underappreciated. They're made some of the most innovative, tuneful and strange music in the last decade.
