I may get arguments from lovers of Realistes, but this is arguably Comet Gain's finest offering to date. The production is much better than in past efforts which allows the songs to breathe without the whole shebang being thrown into the red. As always, David Christian's tales of life's almost winners and desperate losers are filled with an uncanny mixture of poetry and street grime. He's never a slave to his influences ( The Go- Betweens, punk, northern soul) and he creates a heady stew: raging rockers( Working Circle Explosive!, Herbert Huncke Prt2) sit comfortably next to heartbreaking ballads ( She Had Daydreams, Some Of Us Don't Want To Be Saved) A brilliant record.

No one channels working-class idealism quite like Comet Gain, who manage to find exuberance in the small joys of record collecting, the solidarity of relationship highs and lows, and an active attitude toward combating boredom with the simplest of antidotes: human interaction. They show no signs of slowing down on "Howl Of The Lonely Crowd," a very worthy successor to "City Fallen Leaves" that ups the ante, sounding more like a second volume of their singles collection "Broken Record Prayers." Quite the contrary, this might be the most energy-infused record, front to back, that they've hatched.

Comet Gain are a bit of an indie-rock anomaly in the current milieu: earnest, non-ironic, energized toward the twin potentials of youth and art. Their music is often joyously shambolic (though they manage to turn some of their tightest tricks on "Howl," with Byrds-ian chimey guitars and tambourines ping-ponging the rhythm-keeping duties); clearly and profoundly influenced by what must be prodigious record collections cataloguing the entire history of the pop song. Some of the "Ripped Up Suit" moments of their most in-the-red album "Realistes" are present on this latest disc (the stretch of songs from "Working Circle Explosive!" to "Herbert Huncke, Pt. 2" being especially incendiary), along with some yearningly gorgeous songwriting of the quieter sort (closing number "In A Lonely Place," "Some Of Us Don't Want To Be Saved" and "A Memorial For Nobody I Know." <---I keep putting a closed parenthesis here, but it keeps disappearing when I post!
