Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Produced by Chris Walla (Death Cab for Cutie) and Beau Sorenson (Sparklehorse), Let It Sway is the eagerly awaited follow-up to critical success darlings Broom and Pershing.

Review

Like many long-named buzz bands, SSLYBY makes charming, affable pop music worthy of its playful name. Its home-recorded debut, Broom, sounded like Rivers Cuomo forgot his distortion pedal for Weezer practice. With Pershing following in April, the band is set to remind fans that someone still loves Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. --National Public Radio (Npr)

Customer Reviews

I don't know what happened, guys; I really don't.
M. Leclaire
Its hard to label a band that are so down-to-earth and humble one of the greatest out there but they really are.
Rohan
I'd still give the nod to Pershing as my favorite album but this is a close second.

It's not as good as their first two albums, I'm afraid. The melodies are up to the usual snuff: all the instruments pop in at the right times and sound great, and there is a progression from Pershing (though it's a less-marked progression like from Broom to Pershing).

The problem, as I hear it, are the vocals and the lyrics. They've lost that sweet pop sound from Pershing, and the anxious low-fi edge of Broom. Here, they sound no different than a thousand other Alternative Rock bands, with lyrics to match.

From the very first song:

"We're comin' around
Up from the ground
Straight to your heart now
From my mouth
We've got the sound
Gonna give it out"

What? I mean, how does that even compare to something like Heers from Pershing:

"Now that I'm
Oh, oh, older,
The distances of maps got smaller,
And promises of happiness stall.
I wanna see you again."

There. A simple, perfectly understood sentiment. From an album that was smart and sounded great. I don't know what happened, guys; I really don't. I still look forward to your fourth album, but it won't be an instant purchase. You'll have to earn the trust back.

...it's still great. These songs meander more than the songs of Pershing, but they're incredibly interesting and textured. If you like SSLYBY's first two albums, you'll love this one.

Sometimes I think new bands just try to find an outrageous name to get noticed. Why else would any group call itself Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin (outside of Russia)? And who would expect this band to be a pop group? And an excellent one. I was writing a newspaper preview for SSLYBY's show (and all others) in the Philly area and just had to sample the group's sound, given the awful name. I picked this album to purchase first, since it was well reviewed. Those reviews were correct. Not quite a power pop band, which is my preference, but well-written, catchy songs nonetheless. Check it out for yourself.

It arrived safe, sound, and basically on time. So I appreciate the effort to get it to my son for his birthday.

This is one of those albums that grows on you. I recently went to Italy and every time I went on the trains there. I would just listen to this whole album, and enjoy every minute of it. You should defiantly give this a try. If you buy the vinyl version you can get it on peach vinyl. Through the bands record label polyvinyl which is a safe company to order from. The vinyl also comes with an mp3 download which also gives you bonus songs!
