Editorial Reviews

When the defunct Sunny Day Real Estate regrouped for How It Feels to Be Something On in 1998, the band's fans were divided. Some saw it as a collection of frontman Jeremy Enigk's most potent songs, and others dismissed it because it didn't sound like the band's previous efforts. The Rising Tide will probably thin the herd even more, not because it's a bad album but because the band once again has gone traipsing through the fields to find a new pasture in which to graze. Tide engages their emo-antics with the kind of seven-cornered songs that made up Enigk's solo release, Return of the Frog Queen, but this time they're topped with a dose of progressive-rock overdrive. It sounds a bit hard to swallow, but producer Lou Giordano deserves a hand for making a shift of sound go down smooth. --Jason Josephes

i wouldn't believe a negative word you hear about this album. i'm a sdre fan and i enjoy their albums as well, but this is the first one i heard and it's captivated me from the first listens. i've listened to it a million times and it never fails to leave me uplifted - it's like a breath of fresh air.. but it rocks! the band is just really amazing here.. i would go so far as to say it's sdre at their VERY BEST. this is their PEAK. some people claim it's too prog-ish, and yes, it does bear a resemblance to rush due to the high vocals and prominent bass, but who cares? the songs are amazing. it's also interesting to see how their sound evolved through their different albums to end up here.

The newest effort by SDRE is by far not the best. But it is still beautiful in every way as every other release of their's. The album starts of with a bang with 'Killed by an Angel' and slows down a bit. Then 'Snibe' song #5 picks up with the normal SDRE effect. Followed by 'The Ocean'. It is tied with 'Faces in Disguise' as the two which are my favorites. Then the album ends with the title track, a good song to end an album. It leaves you wanting more. So you end up listening to the entire thing over again. Enigk's lyrics are still emotional and poetic as always, and end up singing or humming along. Goldsmith's drumming is magnificent as it is in the others. And Hoerner's guitaring leaves you unaware that of absence of Enigk's guitar since he plays the bass on this glorious release. All in all it is a great album, but it is a close forth to the other spectacular albums released by this unique and talented band. There have been only a few cds that I have bought on the day they were released and this is one I am glad I did.

These underground bands have some rabid fans. Words like "Sell-out" and "Poseur" get used a little too often; as though the plebians shouting the profanities were being complimented by the accusations. No matter. Truth is I CAN hear why many fans would be disappointed with Sunny Day Real Estates last two albums. "How it Feels to Be Something On" sounds worlds apart from the basement recording "Diary." And "Rising Tide" deepens the gap. But something critics and fans will NEVER understand is that you can like two things. Punk and progressive rock are mortal enemies, polar opposites, like water and oil... or so we've been told. Try this - take a CD, put it into your player, listen to it, and ask yourself this question, "Do I like this?" Internet critics have taught people to ask "Am I supposed to like this?" or "Is this an acceptable genre" or even, heaven forbid, "is it COOL to like this?" Now try this: if you answered "Yes" to "do I like this?", your answer to "is this cool?" should also be yes. Feel weird? You'll get used to it.

Now back to the record. I love (absolutely love) both sides of the "heads-tails" coin that is SDRE's career. "Diary" is simply one of the great albums of the 90's and one of the greatest debuts in alternative music history, if not rock history. "How it Feels to Be Something On" was and is a masterpiece, both on paper and in reality. Most fans can accept this. But "Rising Tide" being a good record? "But, it meshes indie and prog! Those are polar opposites on the cool spetrum!" The music however, speaks for itself. The hat-trick worked. Jeremy Enigk emerges with the best vocals of his career, and this indie band melds punk concpets ("Snibe") that sound like Rush ("Television," "Rising Tide"). Recreating the wheel's not a bad way for the 90's best indie band to call it a day.

Overall: 8 out of 10.

Sunny Day Real Estate; what else can be said, one of the most underrated unappreciated bands ever. I can still remember over ten years ago when I was first exposed to the song Seven and was struck by its ferocity and uniqueness. After quite some time, life happened and I momentarily forgot about SDRE; until one day, I came across Diary in a record store and bought the CD. I was struck by the fact that all of the tracks on Diary had merit and the album was put together quite well. After a few years, I sampled How It Feels To Be Something On, and was so impressed by it that I decided to get it on vinyl. Having been thoroughly impressed by HIFTBSO and Sunny Day's new progressive sound, I had reservations about their new album being any better. As soon as the opportunity presented itself, I bought The Rising Tide on vinyl. After a few initial listenings; I wasn't very convinced, but as I continued listening to the album I became enchanted by its grandness and soon found that it became my favorite SDRE album. Sunny Day Real Estate is truly one of the few indie/alternative rock bands that I could honestly say improved with every album. It is sad to see that they have left the music world, but even sadder to see that they never got the recognition they deserved.

This is an exuberant, rich-sounding exploration of pop music, with a calculated prog edge, kind of like what would happen if you crossed _Hold Your Fire_ era Rush with Janes Addiction, a radical branch from the tree the band planted with _How It Feels To Be Something On_. As such it is more than likely bound to irritate most of SDRE's hardcore fans from the first several albums - the emo is certainly there, but it just doesn't have that indie-rock Sub-Pop intimacy. The themes and lyrics are grandiose and the production, although warm, full and overall technically amazing, is sometimes overwhelming. In general producer Lou Giordiano has done an amazing job of neatly stacking the excesses that the band decided to embrace and making it palatable.
I think the band should definitely pursue the direction that the stunning opener "Killed By An Angel" and especially "Snibe" follow, the latter almost sounding like what Queensryche was trying to do (but ultimately failed) with _Hear In The Now Frontier. Both songs are resounding successes, with the catchy "Disappear", the eastern-tinged mysticism of "Fool In The Photograph" and the sultry euro-pop of "Faces In Disguise" not far behind. Another reviewer remarked that "Television" is the song the band is daring you to hate, but I believe that most people will find the turning point at "The Ocean", its goofy bright and sunny lyrics seemingly swiped from Jon Anderson's Yes songbook. Having said that, if you are frightened by the fact that I have mentioned Rush, Jane's Addiction, Queensryche and Yes in this album review, you probably aren't going to get it. The record ends with the epic multilayered title track, fading softly into a shimmering maelstrom of white noise and echoes. Beautiful and bound to be misunderstood. (4-1/2 stars)
