Editorial Reviews

Their Kill Rock Stars debut represents the latest stage in the evolution of one of the most important voices in underground music. Flowing from the mystic prog-laced veins that have informed her art for the past decade, this record builds upon the stark rebellious austerity of 2005's "Ex Hex" and imbues it with warmth and formidable urgency. Equal parts clairvoyance and virtuosity, Mary (formerly of Helium) and her musicians paint in broad strokes a vivid landscape of colorful musical shapes. Much more than a gifted crafter of melody, Timony is a talented multi-instrumentalist, recording among other things, intricately layered keyboards, banjos, analog synths, viola, the melotron, and a vintage Casio PT1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fan-freakin-tastic May 8, 2007
Format:Audio CD
To me this album sounds like a delicious melding of Ex Hex and Helium's Magic City. It has all of the trademark MT sounds and melodies but expands to include some really cool guitar work (some post-hardcore-esque riffs and Sonic-Youth-y picking), along with rockin' drums and bass and dreamy keyboard effects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool, Cool, Cool... May 30, 2007
Format:Audio CD
....So cool, best describes Mary Timony's new album, Her best work since the Magic City, and at times even surpassing that very fine record. It should bring her a whole new audience, it deserves many ears to hear it, but it probably won't. It's also her most straight forward rock record, less of the Cartoon Monster feel of the Dirt of Luck, Less of the medieval feel of all her other records.

Pause/Off is a cool shimmering 60's spy flick soundtrack noise coupled with smart and witty feminist lyrics, it's easily her best song to date. The best record release of the year so far, go out and buy it and be one of the cooler kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars this album rocks my world August 20, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Mary Timony is back with a vengeance, and with a band too! Perhaps the weakest point of this album is the opener "Sharpshooter." If anything, it sets the tone for the album: a fun and diverse album made simply from the joy of making music.

I think this is where some fans have a falling out. Long-dedicated fans of Timony talk about the degradation in her lyrics. That might be a bit critical, and Mary herself has mentioned in recent interviews that she's choosing to not be literal or figurative with the meaning in her newer songs. Mary Timony is an extremely consistent and seasoned musician/lyricist here. She's at that point where she's been there and done that, so to fans expecting songs about unicorns, peacock, demons, and dragons please revisit 'The Golden Dove', 'Mountains', 'The Magic City', and 'No Guitars.'

That doesn't mean that Timony has forgotten those albums. Helium's album The Magic City, in particular the song "Revolution of Hearts, Pt. 1 & 2" come to mind when listening to the tangling of notes in songs such as "Summer's Fawn" and "Rockman".

What matters most in this album is how well the instruments work alongside each other, and fit like a puzzle. Nearly every song on the album ends with thought-out jamming session, not the Sonic Youth kind where it can go on for days. There is also some really solid playing here. Devin O'Campo's percussion made 'Ex Hex' a force to be reckoned with, and unfortunately it's not as bold here, but still strong and dynamic. Chad Molter's bass is essential to this album, and it's really easy to hear why.

What's so great about this album is that it goes back to the nature of 'The Magic City.' This is a really rich-instrument heavy-rock album. The layering of vocals, guitars, sounds are real gems.
