Cursive are kinda on fire with this one. Ever since Domestica and Burst and Bloom, they have been making amazing music. Each album has a new sound, a different twist, a different instrument or two in the mix. I AM GEMINI does some of all of these things. The story line seems just as cool or maybe cooler than any other 'crazy carnival genetic freak' related concept album I already have. I hear talk that buying the actual CD is a winner here, as the insert is A+.

BUT LETS GET TO THE SONGS: This album seems like a giant wall of time changes and crazy effects. Certain tracks stand out, but at a certain point after about 5 songs in, it all melts into a nearly thru composed opera. You can feel the characters coming in and out in different voices. My favorites are The Sun and Moon and Drunken Birds. On Drunken Birds, the driving low guitar mixed with a solo guitar at 45 seconds in has a way of messing with your head, it's like the old Indie rock sound you loved from 1994 just came back to haunt you. BUT they only play this riff 2 times ever in this song, it never comes back. That is what is amazing about this cd. Imagine writing the most amazing riff and vocals to go with it, and then to record it with just the right sound, and to only give it about 22 seconds total. Most indie rock losers could have turned this one riff into a 3 minute song. Cursive is above this. They are above and beyond here. If you like hard rock music, indie rock, alt rock, go get this gem of an album. Then go get The Ugly Organ the very next day.

I've been a big fan of Cursive for about 8 years now, starting with "Domestica" and then moving forward. I loved it, as I then proceeded to love "The Ugly Organ" and "Happy Hollow". The first time I heard "Mama, I'm Swollen" I was taken aback.. I grew to enjoy it but nowhere near the level of the others. I went into this one very skeptical. My first impression of this album was that it was immediately better than Mama, but I wasn't sure how I felt. I liked the second half of the album a lot more than the first few songs..

I know music takes time though, so I gave it a few more spins. The second time I started enjoying the first half of the album more, the third time, the whole album started showing itself. I've listened to it practically non stop since, and it's become one of my favorites. I can't really say what my 'Top 3' Cursive is, but this album is flipping great, and is definitely back in line with what I loved about the band.

I have been listening to Cursive since Storms of Early Summer, and with each album they continue to impress. I have listened to this album many, many times and it still hasn't gotten old. This is one I know I will come back to over the years.
