So as soon as I bought this brand new (as of this writing) release, my nephews got all excited--I put it on in the car, and as they heard it for the very first time their jaws dropped and asked me, "Do these guys ever make an album that DOESN'T sound great?"
Pizzicato Five is one of those rare musical acts who keep getting better and better with each album, who continue to persistently produce music that is nothing but outstanding, who are completely incapable of creating "filler" junk. And, like a lot of such acts, you can actually hear them developing on and expanding ideas from their previous projects--you can musically "connect the dots" here, so to speak, with the experimentation that occured on the previous album "Playboy & Playgirl" just as you can hear the connections between that earlier title and its own predecessor. Indeed, P5 don't appear to really be a pop band, really, so much as an ongoing music conceptual art project.
And after the particularly bad year we had in 2001... isn't it wonderful to have a band like this in the world who can create such wonderful joys in life for us all? P5 continue to remind everyone what is truly important in life. Thank God there is still at least one band around who still cares enough about people to do that.
They are tragically hip, unique, and more addicting the Colonel's 11 herbs and spices.
