Editorial Reviews

This album encompasses a great deal with very little, an aesthetic in stark contrast to orchestral pop and digi-tweaked indie chic. These songs set a perfect bridge from the jangling dissonance and ferocious doubled voicings of the band's debut, to the road-weathered clarity and reflection singer/songwriter Elizabeth Powell has now begun to own so fully.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great 2nd album December 21, 2008
Format:Audio CD
After a very good but someone jumbled first album, Land of Talk comes back with "Some Are Lakes". This entry is much stronger than the first. Elizabeth Powell sticks with mostly double tracking her voice which appears to be her signature sound. It for the most part works. When it doesn't it usually is because the recording gets a bit too sharp on the ears. The music is much tighter this time around with only a few moments where they get too loose and meander a bit too long before coming back together. Mostly, the music leans on post-punk and rock. One standout is easily the opening track "Yuppie Flu" which has an infectious beat and stabbing guitar. The slow song, "It's Okay" is a haunting song of love lost. Every other song is good with no fillers. I wish other bands could put out a whole album of quality tracks. If they can lean a bit more towards mainstream songwriting such as the title track, "Land of Talk" could easily see some commercial success. Overall I can easily recommend Land of Talk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soulful, catchy garage rock album February 19, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The ethereal and amazing song Some Are Lakes got me to purchase this album and I have not been disappointed. It contains other songs I would consider great such as Death by Fire and Got A Call. The vocals are dreamy and the melodies will remain embedded in your memory. The garage rock approach makes the band's overall sound unique as combining such great melodies and singing with a loose and grungy sound to such good effect is often not heard today. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love land of talk. December 11, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I can't get enough of this album. The lyrics start playing in my head if I don't give this album enough attention.
