The Trashcan Sinatras are back with a CD of new studio material (ten songs) and (in North America) bonus recordings from an acoustic show in the UK. "In The Music" is a great collection of medium tempo songs with interesting, mature lyrics. It's a natural progression from 2004's Weightlifting (that album made several top ten lists that year). You won't find anything as fast as their early 1990's hits "Hayfever" and "Obscurity Knocks," but the music never drags. The lyrics are thoughtful - - and successfully avoid being overly introspective. The arrangements and the recording are polished; the vocalists are in fine form; and I can't think of anything I'd rather be listening to right now.

The North American bonus tracks represent a good overview of some of their best songs. I think they'll whet your appetite for more.

I can't say enough about In The Music. Already released in the UK and Japan, it's about time this album made it across the pond. It's a beautiful, melancholy treasure of an album and you won't be disappointed listening to it on a summer's day, during a long drive, or over a bottle of wine. It's a masterpiece suitable for any occasion.

Released in the UK and Japan last year, this cd finally makes its debut stateside with 8 career-spanning bonus acoustic tracks recored live. There is a lot to love here. The opener and first single 'People' is a tremendously catchy bit of pop for fans of The Smiths, Crowded House, Coldplay, Belle & Sebastian, Camera Obscura. Other highlights are 'Prisons' (which doesn't feature Carly Simon as stated in the Amazon track list) 'Should I Pray' (which does), I Wish You'd Met Her' 'Oranges and Apples' (a Syd Barret tribute), and 'The Engine' (perhaps the most beautiful song you'll hear all year). Be sure to catch the band when they tour the States in June. You'll find you have a new favorite band.

It has taken several weeks to muster up my review for the new TCS album, IN THE MUSIC. Initially, I feared it wouldn't be very positive, but as with nearly every TCS album, it takes time, patience and hearing, for it to percolate. As a lifelong rabid fan of the Trashcans, I should've known better. But, as with each previous album, the real satisfaction and joy for me comes from finally "getting it". Life, like the Trashcans, is funny that way.

What can I say, I'm a slow learner.

This album, like each of their previous albums, rewards you over time. And that is exactly why I'm a fan...they are always worth the wait.

So now, after listening to this album repeatedly over the last month, it has truly grown on me. This definitely feels like a "peeling back a layer" album for them, sound-wise and lyrically. But it is still a TCS album in every sense. What it may lack in their trademark tongue-in-cheek and verbal wordplay, it makes up for with genuine heart and gorgeous melodies throughout. This is easily the most soulful album they have ever made. From the jangling guitars on "Oranges and Lemons" to the chorus of "I Wish You'd Met Her", this album is something approaching '60s era R&B. It's still pop, it's still British, but it has a groove.

A word about my favorite song, "The Engine": it is phenomenal. It stands out as one of their best tracks in their whole catalog. Certainly, it is the equal in beauty to "Orange Fell" or "Thrupenny Tears" or "A Coda". This song is the highpoint of the album for me and reminds me exactly why I love this band so much.

Anyway, this is a stunning album from a group that truly has found a way to be "in the music" all the way through. Thank god for the Trashcans.

TCS delivers once again. Never doubted it really. They are without a doubt masters of melodic sweet dreamy pop, very much underrated. I've been listening to the entire album for a few months now and I have yet to grow tired of it. (I doubt I ever will!) They're a bit more soulful in this offering and it's breathtaking. A surprise was "I Can't Stand Tomorrow," love it! Instant favorites: "I wish you'd met her" and "In the Music." Fracis Reader's vocals are in top form! Thanks for the beautiful music TCS!

C'mon......Let's be honest. Bands like the Trashcan Sinatras should be a household name. Their albums should be available in every store, their songs played on every radio station, their back catalogue discovered and rediscovered by music fans of all ages. But no, we are not living in a perfect world. Corporate commercial hype rules the airwaves. They blind us on TV with their booty shaking, mind numbingly repetitive, boring tunes by talentless pawns to the game known as ( ahem ) the Music Industry. Well......listen up folks who don't want to be sheep ! Here is a beautifully constructed, crafted piece of pure pop magic ( Just like their back catalogue ) that will excite on repeated listenings. Buy it and you might just regain your musical identity ! Thank you the powers that be for the Trashcan Sinatras !

Some of us like to label our favourite bands as "Best band..." of a genre, year, decade or even from a specific country. I always had a thing for obscure, "b-road" sort of bands and songs, and subsequently lesser-known music. However, I'm not talking about weird or eccentric music, or stuff that intends to be detached or underground, like Punk. My taste in music is hinged on songs and bands I feel should be mainstream or at least more recognised. I'm talking about music so palatable it is appreciated equally by preteens and grandparents, while serving as primary playlist material for a generation of maturing Gen-Xers, like me. I'm talking about The Trashcan Sinatras.

So I tend to label my favourite bands as "Most Underrated..." of a genre, year, decade or from a specific country. TCS can easily fill any one of those categories. However, since 1991, when I first heard "Maybe I Should Drive," I have long contested that this is by far the most underrated band of all time.

"Weightlifting" will likely always be my favourite TCS album. It literally pulled me from very dark depths I sunk to at that time in my life. So the bar was set high for "In the Music" and I feared it might disappoint. However, as a couple reviews have noted, "In the Music" is a natural follow-up to "Weightlifting." They are very different in song meanings, undertones and overall album atmosphere. Yet musically, "In the Music" seems to pick up right where "Weightlifting" left off, but is a little more upbeat and optimistic than "Weightlifting." Yes, TCS has departed somewhat from the sounds of Cake, but their sound has also matured and aged as well as any veteran band could have 20+ years into their career. TCS radiate musical passion while maintaining a delightful down-to-earth appeal.
