Editorial Reviews

If you sought comparisons for Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros forthcoming self-titled album, you would hear the soulfulness of The Supremes' Where Did Our Love Go, , the raw exuberant pop of the Beatles' "Yellow Submarine" and the psychedelic echoes of Jefferson Airplane's Surrealistic Pillow album.


But at its roots, the album shows a band evolved and hopeful for the future.
Some tracks from this new release were originally recorded as the bookend piece to their sophomore album, Here, but in their last year of touring, this collection of songs was reimagined, taking on their own shape. They are upbeat, boisterous and passionate, with gospel chorus harmonies, raw, wailing vocals, and deep-in-the-pocket rhythms. Better Days mirrors perfectly the feelings of a country emerging from several years of tough times as the light of hope begins to peak through. It may be their most earnest work yet.

Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros burst into the music scene in 2009 with the already classic single "Home" and a debut album bursting with potential. People wanted to know where this joyous Woodstock lovechild had emerged from--and who on earth Edward was. As so often with brilliant debuts, they are not really debuts but really the culmination of previous failed attempts. After initial success with band Ima Robot, lead singer Alex Ebert felt lost in a party lifestyle and drug addiction. He subsequently went to rehab and while he then continued releasing music with Ima Robot, he still was clearly looking for something else. Later Alex found the pixie like and wonderfully intoxicating Jade Castrinos wandering about in Los Angeles. While together, they started writing and performing, slowly building up a troupe of 10ish troubadours and artists that finally collectively became known as Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, named after a quasi-religious alter ego that Alex created once he became sober.

The band followed up their official debut with sophomore album "Here" which was a disappointment as while it was consistent; it was not exceptional and had no breakout singles like "Home." At this point, I was prepared to sort of write off the Zeros as somewhat of a novelty act capable of greatness but realistically a band that made me feel more nostalgic about the past than grounded in the present.

However, the Zeros eponymous third album is where all that changes. While there are still no singles which reach the zenith of "Home", Alex has finally managed to ground his writing in reality that resonates. It's much more mature, more somber writing--though musically this isn't always reflected as there is no shortage of bombastic clapping stomping choruses.

I heard of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros around the time they debuted in 2009. I remembered "Home" being a solid song so then I saw "Here" and I got it. I did not like "Here" much at all. Then I saw this album as a first listen on NPR music and I listened to it a dozen times before it was officially released and I could own it. It's a well conceived album that goes from start to finish without a song feeling out of place. If they put "Home" on this and debuted with this album, it would be a classic.

I fell in love with "Up from Below" from the beginning, and then Alex Ebert's solo "Alexander", so had high hopes last year when "Here" was released. While there are some terrific songs on that album ("Man on Fire", "Dear Believer", "Child"), for me it just didn't soar like the first album or Alex's solo effort.

Thus, I had some trepidation when their third (eponymous) album "Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros" was released a few weeks ago. After many listens over the summer, I found this collection to be a close to the first album, with the same excellent songwriting, daring arrangements and diversity of music that made the first record so special.

The album starts with the ready-for-radio "Better Days", one of the band's best songs to date (for a great performance, check out their Conan rendition on YouTube), then launches wildly into "Let's Get High", a careening ride that will grow on you infectiously, once you've figured out the twists and turns along the way. Next up is "Two", clearly the third part in the series of Mickey & Sylvia-inspired duets featuring Alex and Jade (following "Home" and "That's What's Up" from the previous albums). It's a catchy song that will surely see some live performances, too.

The plaintive ballad "Please" follows, and is one of the many highlights of the album, with a gorgeous blend of vocals from Alex and Jade, gospel chorus and soulful guitars. "Country Calling" is next, a sort of mid-60s hybrid of Wilson Picket verses with Mamas and Papas choruses that I appreciated for its inventiveness and daring -- Alex goes full tilt on this one.

Next is one of the major highlights of the album, "Life is Hard".

Not a set of songs, but truly an album where the music grows and moves forward with each tune working as a scene in a magnificent play unfolding in your mind.

This is by far my favorite album from the group. The whole album has a different feel than their previous two albums, which actually works really well here. I'm not sure how to describe it other than they have more soul in their music, and incorporate a bit of an older style of music that reminds me of more of The Beatles than any of their previous work.

I purchased this album after hearing the band's two previous offerings, "Up From Below" and "Here", which I enjoyed. I expected a very good song or two, some good songs, and a couple of okay songs. But what I heard blew me away. There are many absolutely mesmerizing pieces crammed into this album. I listened to it three times the first day. Each time I listened to it thereafter was a spellbinding experience. Even the two or three songs I thought of as 'okay' grew on me over time, as I came to appreciate the content of each. The skillful, creative genius at work is readily apparent at first listen, and I felt drawn into the depths of song after song with continued listening. I relaxed and they took hold of me and carried me on journeys of bliss. I experienced joyful, thoughtful, soulful, exhilarating vibrations throughout my body and mind. I am not easily moved by musical outputs, as much of it is mundane and repetitious and uninspiring. But the sometimes subtle, artistic genius at work within many of these creations washes over you gently at first, and then begins to explode dazzlingly within your mind as your appreciation and awe grow and grow with continued play. I am rarely struck by musical offerings as I was by this one. This group is very special, and puts an enormous amount of feeling into their music. Alexander Ebert pours his soul into each of his creations, and leaves you wanting more. Good vibrations, indeed. This is a treasure.
