I can't believe I am the first to post a review on this great album! I bought it on the strength of a magazine review and have not been disappointed.

It's a set of long, sumptuous songs which gradually course through a series of lovely time shifts and nervy emotional lifts..

It's like Crazy Horse meets Cat Stevens.. and then, it's like David Crosby meets Tangerine Dream on a summer afternoon in 1973.

I deduct one star because the mastering seems a little thin for what The Amazing are trying to achieve. I played it alongside some other recent releases and it's a bit wanting. Then again, I suppose this is what happens when innovative, reaching music is made on a lower, indie budget (if this is indeed the case-- I'm only surmising). I guess I'll just have to turn it up!

The Amazing is one of those bands whose music is totally fresh, yet feels like music you've heard all your life. Great melodies, fabulous rhythm via the drums and bass, and wonderful cascading guitar riffs. Bits of it do remind me of CSN and America from their first album, the guitars sounds, especially when on one of those long floating riffs. The music has and enchanted ethereal quality to it, without being pretentious. Kind of a Moody Blues dreamy sound? Theres just enough of of each element. I do find the production to be a bit dense at times. Best heard on a high quality system that opens up the playing. All in all, one of my favorite finds of the past couple of years.

I recently heard Gentle Stream (the titular song) on KUTX here in Austin and thought to myself "Huh, that's a good song." So I decided to purchase this album.

The sound is a blend of timeless, jam bandy, chill wave that washes over you, cleansing your tarnished aura. If you enjoy groups like My Education (local Austin band) or Explosions in the Sky and the addition of lyrics, you'll really love The Amazing. They're the next biggest thing to come out of Sweden since Minecraft.

Do yourself a favor, give it a listen.

So relaxing yet stimulating listening to this album. Getting a blessed chance to see these guys in America tonight!

Tracks that really stand out for me are the title track, International Hair, Dogs, and When The Colours Change.

Shame I had to wait almost 6 months to get these beautiful sounds in the US.

Pleasant stuff. They're not too lo-fi, but an even cleaner sound would suit me fine. Perhaps I'm trying to overlay Crosby's Laughing / Cowbow Movie too much or expect a Real Estate clone or something. One reviewer noted the Grateful Dead Mind Left Body Jam outtro on Flashlight!

Too bad there's no previews at this site.

A wonderful odyssey filled with unpredictable composition. I have yet to tire of hearing this album and doubt that I ever will! I recommend this for anyone who enjoys original music.

First, the criticism...I think a few reviews have valid points about the overall mixing being a little fat, but that is easy to put aside when I hear these songs. Another review I think said it best when s/he said 'music is totally fresh, yet feels like music you've heard all your life.' So true. I've been a big music fan my whole life, until recently in the last few years. My feeling was that music in general was getting stale and I was really looking for a band with a fresh sound to get into. These guys have been that band...maybe just good timing for me, but I am really enjoying their sound and hope they come back to the states for a tour! I will be tracking what these guys put out from now on.

If I have to critique this CD, I'd say a few tracks are cluttered with sound to the point where it's distracting. Once these guys realize the quietude behind the notes matters, I think they'll be find bc this seems as tho they're trying to fill every single space with sound; It feels too much at times. All this being sed, it's still probably their best effort to date. Keep up the great work, guys!
