Comment: Very good condition CD with jewel case and both single page case tray inlays from Spark and Shine Records. The case is clean, the snap closure works perfectly, and the disc hub is intact. The inlays are also clean and they have no cuts, tears, pen marks or punch holes. The disc has only a tiny bit of very light surface level scratching, none of which caused any problems for me during playback. The outer band matrix identifier on the disc is IFPI LT05.

Editorial Reviews

El Sonido Nuevo, the seventh studio record from Austin-raised, Seattle-based singer-songwriter Ian Moore, bridges the gap between the stylistic offshoots of his past few records and the guitar-slinging bravado that characterized his earlier, often bluesier, output. 'The album is a retrenching in the face of a diffuse pop culture landscape,' says Moore, now fronting power-pop trio The Lossy Coils for El Sonido Nuevo. 'Every band has ten members, every movie is a sequel, there are 500 channels and nothing's on'.

Moore's earlier years as a guitar-slinging Texan have completely receded from his rear-view mirror, but the last fifteen years has seen the blues not so much abandoned as muscled into balance with soul and pop flavors. His guitar playing is still beefy, and he can rip up rock solos, but his songs don't rely on 12-bar progressions, his melodies are upbeat rather than blue, the harmonies reach to the British Invasion and California sunshine pop, and he offers himself more as a singer-songwriter than a guitarist. Those changes have developed organically over several years and albums, and here he transforms again from the psych inflections of Luminaria and experimental arrangements of To Be Loved to straight-ahead pop-rock. The new sound (or el sunido nuevo) is due in large part to the reduction of Moore's band, the Lossy Coils, to a power-pop trio of guitar, bass and drums. The production skips layer-upon-layer overdubbing, favoring instead the trio's rhythm section and strong, clear vocals. Moore's stylistic reach is broad, from the tightly arranged a cappella intro of "Silver Sunshine" to the superb pop balladry of "Newfound Station" and blues-based punch of "Let Me Out." At times the music takes on the pop-edged rock sounds of `70s bands like Foreigner, Electric Light Orchestra and Pink Floyd, with some David Gilmour-eque guitar adding power to "Hilary Step." Moore's a skilled songwriter, managing to close-rhyme "things I've missed" with "miscreants," turning a pep talk into a nervous glance at a darker past, and weaving themes of uncertainty, self-doubt and loneliness into several songs. The closing "Sad Affair" provides a melodic homage to Alex Chilton's "Holocaust," and its downcast appraisal segues neatly back to the pub-rock energy of the opener. [©2011 hyperbolium dot com]

I think Ian has really found his space with this album. Have been a fan since the early days of his blue/rock guitar era, and through the folksy period, etc. The songs in this album are really well crafted, lyrically and musically. They don't feel contrived in any way, like " I want to sound like this type of music, but it really is not me" To me it feels like his most organic album since Modernday Folklore. He is letting him self plays some cool guitar leads again and has found a new voice with it. Sometimes his playing on the album evokes Nels Cline from Wilco if you were to compare it to another guitarist. I can't say enough good things about this album. I didn't love "To Be Loved", his last album, had some good tracks, but wasn't a listen to the whole thing straight through multiple times album.. This album is that, its awesome !! If you want to hear some really unique well written songs, great singing, excellent musicianship all around you should take a chance and buy this album.

I am embarrassed to admit this is my first ever listen to Ian Moore.I consider myself very well schooled in music, including most Indie artists that even my teenage daughters are unfamiliar with, needless to say, I am thrilled with this album, it is both pop and rock, depending on the tune, I am not a pop lover, but Ian does a great job with both genres. There is no doubt in my mind I will be moving back in time and purchasing his earlier material as well . If you,re on the fence about purchasing this album, well jump over that fence and enjoy...it is worth the money and more importantly, worth the listen.

I should've listened to more clips. Few songs okay, but just not my thing. No beats, hooks, etc that make anything stand out.
