4.0 out of 5 stars Honeysuckle Weeks May 17, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
This is the second 10-track album from the indie pop duo "The Submarines." I liked Declare a New State!, and was pleasantly surprised to see that they were releasing another album late this spring.

Everything this time around is very sunny, happy, solid pop music. Really good music for the start of summer. Blake takes over almost all the vocals, although Dragonetti is still present on at least half of the songs. This works well. I don't think this album is destined to be a 'classic' - but it is still an impressive sophomore effort. A few tracks are great; all are good.

My favorite tracks: 1, 3, 6, 10.

This album is absolutely worth the $8.99 you can get it for in Amazon MP3 downloads.

Also, at least for now, you can listen to all of The Submarines' music for free at last.fm ([...]) - so if you want a little more than the 30 second preview Amazon or iTunes gives you, head over there and check it out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Upbeat and pretty September 18, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
I got You Me and the Bourgeoisie as a free download, and had to check out more. It's happy and upbeat, filled with indie pop goodness.

1940 is my favorite. Swimming Pool is a cute love song that puts me in a good mood. Submarine Symphonika and The Thorny Thicket are really fun, too.

The female singer has a pretty voice. The music is good and the lyrics are interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mixed emotions September 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I kind of bought this album on a whim... I saw a live performance, listened to some clips and thought, "what the heck!" When I popped it in the CD player I had mixed emotions, but after a couple of listens it started to grow on me a little more.

There are a handful of songs I love (hence the 4 stars rather than 3), some that are fun and good enough to listen to, and a couple that don't exactly tickle my fancy. Overall I like their sound... I definitely enjoy listening to the girl sing over the guy though.

My faves: 1, 3, 4, 6

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime Album December 9, 2009
By Shirley
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Listening to the entire cd reminds me of other duo indie bands like "The birds and the bees" and "The Weepies".My Favorite tracks are "The wake up song" and "Xavia". This cd is a "GEM" and worth to own.

From the quality of the songwriting to delivery of the sound, Submarines are worth every penny. Sweet and witty vocal delivery, and she is really hot, too! Super yummy music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical magic to my ears! February 20, 2013
By Melss
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
When I first heard The Submarines, it was in the movie Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. Their song Xavia is such a standout in the movie amongst several other great songs on the soundtrack. Xavia was just such a beautiful song that I decided I should get the album it was featured on: Honeysuckle Weeks! This album does not disappoint! The Thorny Thicket is catchy. 1940 and The Wake Up Song are nice ones, too. Swimming Pool has got to be another one of my favorites. This is a great debut album and I recommend buying it!
