4.0 out of 5 stars Beware the multiple versions February 26, 2010
Format:Audio CD
It pains me to give this only 4 stars. I genuinely believe this group is one of the most important breakthrough acts of recent times but this CD and the Deluxe version offered by i Tunes are reworked versions of All Balloons which is the raw stuff, vocals, acoustics, background vocal harmonies and absolutely brilliant. The newer versions have extras added - unnecessary male vocals over the female response in Kandi, Heavy guitar in UFO which totally masks the original 'out of this world' recording. Some tracks are the same Simple Day to name but one, Chocolate is nearly the same except it was Choclate (sic): Other tracks are not on the newer versions - Giving Up is more indicative of the new approach and Hi Low and in Between which is a bonus on the 'Deluxe' version is worth the price of the whole download let alone the .99c option on i Tunes. BUT find All Balloons if you can - it is as exciting a debut as I have heard and without any of the post production tinkering which adds nothing to any of the original tracks at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! October 5, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Saw these guys open for Tori Amos in Salt Lake City. AMAZING live! I went out to get the EP from the merch booth during the intermission and the guys were standing around talking to people and signed the disc for me. Really nice guys! This cd is awesome. I'd never heard of them before the Tori show. This is why it rocks to have good openers for the people you're going to see play. We get a new band to like, and they get our money. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent first album September 26, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I saw this band when they opened for Tori Amos in Minneapolis. I've been waiting for this album's release, listening to the EP Kandi. I must say the the album does NOT disappoint. Good stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome album, awesome new band! June 11, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
i dont usually write reviews but after listening to this album i feel like more people should know about this new band and listen to this music!

i love their mellow minimalist style

my faves so far are Kandi and Astronauts

they do what very few bands do nowadays; they write awesome lyrics that actually have a meaning to them and are accentuated by the instruments not drowned by all the noise

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent CD June 6, 2010
By Karen
Format:MP3 Music
I heard this cd on WXPN radio. Kandi and Astronauts are excellent songs. The whole cd is great. A new group. If you like alternative this is the cd.
Good music like this you won't hear on regular radio.

5.0 out of 5 stars One eskimO November 15, 2010
Format:Audio CD
haven't before written anything here, but this is worth writing about.

it is not that difficult to find music that is likable, but there is something about this album that transcends just 'good music'.

i saw them play here in Philadelphia and was so impressed i bought the album. since bringing it home, i have not been able to stop playing it. never before (and i own somewhere around 1,500 cds) have i felt so emotionally moved by an album as i have with this.

the music is richly layered, but simple at the same time. with relatively few instruments (bass, acoustic guitar, light percussion (cajon/symbals, etc.), a modicum of synth loops, and some French horn), the musicians have created an evocative and atmospheric, uniquely textured style filled with melodic flourishes. the vocals are lush and understated, sung with a hushed, vaguely throaty power that is stirring and emotional. while the sound of the album is a bit hard to categorise, the orchestration mixes a lot of acoustic texture with some synth sounds in a way that marries the type of guitarwork of someone like Ray Lamontagne with the sort of electronic sensibilities one might find in some of the more lush Gorillaz tracks, sometimes reminding a bit of David Gray or even finding itself wandering into Peter Gabrielesque (earlier) territory. but it is hard to compare this music with other music because one of the huge differences is that there is no contrivance in this music; it is incredibly genuine on a level that resonates emotionally.

the one weakness, if any, in my opinion, is some of the lyrics. not a deal-breaker, but not as strong as the musical sensibility.

unfortunately, the versions which one might hear over the radio do not seem to be the ones used for the most part on the album.

3.0 out of 5 stars I really wanted to like this June 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD
As much as I've tired to keep an open mind and like this cd, I just found that everything sounded the same. I would play this cd for background music at a party but not something I would sit down and listen to on my iPod. The group has potential and I look forward to seeing what else they can do. But, for now I give this cd a 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soulful sound December 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Saw band perform live in LA after scoring free tix from favorite station KCRW. Greatly enjoyed their set (and the accompanying animation) and have continued to listen to the CD many times without tiring of their sound. Lead singer has a beautifully soulful voice and appreciate that I can actually hear all the lyrics. This is not a hard-rocking album but more quiet, lyrical, and a bit quirky. I particularly like the songs Kandi, Astronauts,and Amazing.
