Editorial Reviews

Oceans Will Rise is the third album by Montreal band The Stills. In late 2007, Toronto, Canada-based record label Arts & Crafts signed the band to a worldwide recording deal. Once again working with producer Gus van Go, The Stills' new material, beginning with the anthemic lead single, "Being Here," conveys a rejuvenated, reinvigorated sense of being. According to vocalist Tim Fletcher, the group felt "a raw energy of inspiration" during the new album's recording efforts that was absent in previous sessions. "The Stills are back back back!" - NME.com

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost a happy medium of the first two albums August 21, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I can see some people pointing to this as a step back towards the sound of "Logic Will Break Your Heart," at least on certain tracks. I can see some people being happy that it doesn't sound MORE like "Logic Will Break Your Heart." Personally, I loved both "Logic" and "Without Feathers."

And while "Oceans Will Rise" sounds almost like an amalgam of sounds from those two albums, rest assured that it stands on its own.

Stand outs, to me, include:

"Snow In California" might have been a better choice to open the album and sounds like it could have been a b-side to "Logic."

"Snakecharming the Masses" is a fantastic song and shows some really inspired songwriting. There's nothing really easy about the progression in this song, yet it still feels natural. They seem to avoid what's expected, though.

"Being Here" is the first single, I believe, and it's easy to see why. Actually, THIS was probably a more obvious first track, but hindsight being 20/20 I think it might have given a false impression of the record. It's a good, catchy tune.

"Everything I Build" is the first definitively somber song on the album and it's a winner. That's actually probably the most distinct part about this record -- the mellow tunes. They're all very good.

"Eastern Europe" is insanely listen-able. In parts it reminds me of the Foo Fighters, in fact. It's just a catchy pop song. It's strut worthy.

"Hands On Fire" is perhaps my favorite song on the album at the moment. It's mellow and catchy and has a good groove.

"Dinosaurs" is yet another mellow song and maintains the quality. That's not to say that these mellow songs move. They do. But they all have a fairly somber tone more fully realized than earlier releases.

"Rooibos/Palm Wine Drinkard" feels more like a "Without Feathers" tune but, really, it's just a rockin' song.

All in all, good stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Indie Rock With 80's Vocals October 3, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The 80's feel and overtones on this album come mainly from the vocals, which is just an observation and not a negative, a style of sound but not a replication. I find that much of the musical sound is much more on the 'newer' side, with well-written, well-sung, well-played, and thoughtful songs that are quite good overall. It's an excellent album, but not a superb one (the superb ranks are very few), good enough to put in your player and just let it run through... because all of the songs are good to my ears, some great, which makes it worth owning because so many albums put out these days have only but 2-3 good, or great (or just one!), songs at best and the rest just seem to totally suck. Rather than bore you with my prattle about each track, I suggest you give a listen to the samples provided here on amazon and then buy the cd or download the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly a great album September 4, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I'm relatively new to The Stills and I heard this album before the other two. Since I haven't spun Logic yet, maybe that's why I can genuinely appreciate this album in a vacuum. Well, I am currently listening to WF and I like WF too. But Oceans is much catchier, I can hear hints of bands such as Dredg and even AFI and Funeral For A Friend, which is fine with me. Tim and Dave's voices are both nice, it's hard to tell the difference most of the time.

It reminds me of the situation that Funeral For A Friend went through. They changed their style completely on their current album Tales, and although it's a decent album, compared to their previous work, it's easy to see why it got trashed.
