David Freel of Swell has been creating gentle, intoxicating, swirling music from his base in San Francisco since the early '90s. Although critics like to contrast his sound with the stuttering slacker charm of followers Grandaddy and Elliott Smith, Swell is somewhat more refined. The title track is a subtle brooding anthem, while the instrumental, "I Don't Think So," is reminiscent of the ecstatic experimentation of Flying Saucer Attack from Bristol, England. "Bored and crazy / Everything was maybe / Let's take a different point of view," Freel sings on the self-immolating, Sebadoh-esque "I Like Poverty." Indeed. --Jerry Thackray

Yes... again... Swell has been at it for well over a decade and virtually none of you have noticed... I would like to at least think that there is a loyal college audience, but a majority of them as well are amongst the un-enlightened... hmmmm... all I'm saying is OPEN YOUR EARS... Swell has made some incredible albums and is showing absolutely no signs of letting up... this album flows right off of where "Too Many Days Without Thinking" flowed to... but seriously... if you are not versed in what these guys are about, try to find the albums "...well?" and "41"... you won't be sorry that you did... and shame on all of you if you don"t!

So, I left that previous review and I posted a little erroraneous info... the previous album was "For All The Beautiful People" and not "Too Many Days Without Thinking"... I can't believe I temporarily misplaced that info... but I still maintain... both are masterpieces worthy of all ears... each of Swell's albums flow right into the next (even if you throw all the singles in between them)...

Sure everything changes, evolves or whatever - but refined Swell
is an oxymoron. The atmosphere created on previous albums made you feel as if it had been recorded live - at a pub - where you got to know the band intimately - while doing shots of Jaegermiester or something - so that by the time you're on the final tracks you're singing along and feeling the depth of your rock and roll soul. Generally I love a candy coating, but Swell made me love feeling rusty, dusty, and like some of my hair might have got singed (cause there's kinda like a smell) ... I digress.
New Swell still has the grooves and the hooks (probably more so) usually in multilayered sonic blasts (i.e. 'Everybody Wants to Know', 'East-N-West', 'Inside a Bomb', etc.) and are true to their unique song stuctures and understated imbelishments such - as on the end of 'This Story'. At best (and still this album better than anything else released in the new millinium) it's a pleasant reminder of vintage Swell (before they took out the smell).
