I'm beyond amazed. This album has a wide variety of song stylings, ranging from a song in French to more upbeat tracks, from lyrics about being apart from your children to reflecting on your past. Anthony Stewart Head (vocals, lyrics) and George Sarah (music, arrangements) have created an emotional and unique musical journey.

Track 1: "What Can You Tell Me?" starts the record off at a good pace, making your head bop along.

Track 2: "Babies (The In Between)" tugs at the heartstrings for anyone who misses their children, or even friends or family members - and remembers when they were young - and can't believe that they've grown up so quickly.

Track 3: "Owning My Mistakes" is about admitting what's past and dealing with what's present.

Track 4: [segue] An instrumental piece.

Track 5: "We Can Work It Out" is a remake of the classic tune written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, sung as a duet by Anthony and Holly Palmer. Holly's voice makes you take notice - and the modern take on the background music makes it all the more unique.

Track 6: "Qu'est Ce Que J'ai Fait" is in French. Voila.

Track 7: "All the Fun of the Fair" is incredibly catchy and is about revisiting something you did when you were younger, and seeing it with different eyes. Justina Machado is a featured vocalist. Amber Benson is also one of the vocalists on the track, singing the top line. Suzy Pradden provides the voice of the short speaking bit.

Track 8: "This Town in the Rain" describes Los Angeles during a rainstorm. Been there, lived that, strongly agree with the descriptions and emotions.

Track 9: "Talk to You" is beautiful, with strings and heartache.

I bought this album out of curiosity for the most part. And, being a Buffy fan, it was something I should have even if I didn't like it. I already knew from the show that Anthony Head was more than adequate as a singer, but a lot more than a good voice goes into being a musician. So Music For Elevators turned out to be quite a surprise, and a good one at that.
Head is responsible for most of the words and a good piece of the eclectic music on this album. George Sarah is responsible for most of the sound except for Heads voice. The combination is quite effective. Anthony Head's voice lends itself to an intimate style, the musical delivery adds interest, but is very careful to leave the core content and it's style the predominant elements. Considering how many times I've had to sit through a 'star' album that has been over-produced in order to disguise the more obvious faults this is a refreshingly genuine piece of work.
It's hard to critique the debut album of someone whose creativity you really do admire. One wants to gush, and there is a lot to praise here. But if Head has a weakpoint, it is as a lyricist. His words are far from terrible, and they address some interesting subjects - a father's lament in 'Babies,' the depressing side of Los Angeles in 'This Town In The Rain.' But he always hovers on that ever-dangerous border between trite and meaningful - and doesn't always land on the good side. He does really try to say a lot in his songs and there are certainly no abject failures. Just be prepared for a dash of almost boyish awkwardness.
Among the very good is the aforementioned 'Babies,' a very unusual cover of 'We Can Work It Out,' the almost metaphysical, very environmental 'One Man's Rain,' and 'Change' where the content almost runs away with the music, but not quite. Over all this is a very satisfactory album - speaking as someone who buys very few 'pop/rock' albums in any year. Maybe that's something I should change...

I honestly bought this album simply for Anothony Stewart Head's voice. I'm not a big fan of the more electronic music (I'm too much a fan of guitars and pianos) but the work on this works surprisingly well. As someone said already, the music tends to overpower Anthony Head's fantastic singing, but the songs are still beautifully put together and the lyrics are emotional and haunting, at times. I'd love to see a more accoustic album from Anthony Head, at some point. Pay attention to:
Babies (the in between)- This song will break your heart. One of the more lyrical songs on the cd and incredibly powerful.
We Can Work it Out- A very, very different take on the Beatles song. The play between Head's vocal line and Holly Palmer's is beautiful.
Qu'est ce que j'ai fait- Just wonderful to listen to, seeming as I don't know any French.
Talk to You- One of the shortest songs but probably the most accoustic on the cd. The lyrics are, again, heart breaking. This is one of the best displays of his voice.
Last Time- I'd love to see Joss Whedon and Anthony Head work together on a album at some point. Between this and what he wrote for the Buffy musical, I think that Joss writes amazing things for Head's voice.
End Game- This one will stick with you. An absolutely haunting look at loss.
Also, read the lyrics to Staring at the Sun. The song is mixed in such a way that you can't really understand them, but they're like poetry.

The first time I listened to the tracks on this album, I thought that they could have been better. But each time I listen to it, it gets better and better. I knew Anthony Head has a beautiful voice from the songs he's performed on "Buffy," but his voice seems too soft in some songs, with the overpowering effect of the music. This album is still amazing, from opening to closing. "What Can You Tell Me?" is a great opener that has you tapping your feet. "Babies" is so beautiful, my friend started crying the first time she heard it. Head sounds so sincere in this song that it takes the lyrics to another level. "Quest ce que J'ai Fait" (which means "What Have I Done?" in French) sounds beautiful, about a person who can't understand why his lover walked away.
"All the Fun of the Fair" is one of many tracks that features actress Amber Benson, and she does a great job with the part she gets. The opening line to this ("I wrote this song when I was younger/Blind to the lessons I could learn") tells you just how much you can mature through music. "This Town in the Rain" is great... probably my favorite track. The opening beat is catchy, and ASH takes it away with some catchy lyrics.
"Last Time" is the other song that may give "This Town" any competition. Written by Joss Whedon, it's a song about someone who keeps on saying "this is the last time... I won't put up with it anymore," but can't help but go running back. Amber Benson again does amazing vocal work here. The last song I wanted to mention was "End Game," a slow but stunning song that gives you a strong visual about what might be going on. Alyson Hannigan and James Marsters both guest on this track.
