Customer Reviews

The production is by far the best of any Apples album.
thealanwattsriot
It doesn't always work--"The Bird That You Can't See" strays dangerously close to Squeeze territory--but overall this disc doesn't miss.
Max Frost
Cases Suggestive Of...' is a bit heavier, a bit more distorted, and a bit less innocent than the previous 3 songs.

The Apples in Stereo, perhaps the most accessible Elephant 6 band, get tighter, groovier and poppier on this record. Their sound has been progressing from a more traditional psychedelic pop band that paid homage to Rubber Soul Beatles ("Tone Soul Evolution") to one more reminiscent of an early 70s Badfinger or bubblegum pop.
Unlike other Apples albums, TDOAWITM has no really weak songs that make me press "skip" on my CD player. Each one will get you tapping your feet, drumming your steering wheel, or god forbid, your behind up on the dance floor.
In fact, the tune "Look Away" stands apart from the rest because it was release on an EP many months before TDOAWITM. It sounds like the "old" Apples more than the "new" Apples on the rest of the disc.
Harmonies, horns, trippy vocals and a sound that would have fit in on Budda Records three decades ago make this one of my favorite releases of 2001.

This April 2000 release of the Elephant 6's most prominent band is quite accessible, especially poppy, and downright enjoyable. The funkiness (especially of the bass line) of the tenth track, "The Bird That You Can't See" is a little unexpected and very infectious. The overall mood of the album continues the band's practice of tipping the hat to the Beatles. The harmonies still are suggestive of Beach Boys. Perhaps the dissappointment of the album lies in its unexperimental and totally straight-ahead foci. Of course, the Apples in stereo aren't quite as exotic-seeming as the Olivia Tremor Control, for instance, but some different sounds a la Her Wallpaper Reverie would be interesting. Overall, the record is good as a fairly coherent pop statement. I think it is recommended in the least for listening if not for purchasing.

Apples in Stereo produce some of the best indie pop. This album is their best effort yet, producing such infinitely hummable tunes as Go, Rainbow, I Can't Believe, The Bird That You Can't See, and Submarine. Whenever I want to convince people that all indie rock doesn't stink, I play this for them. Even if they don't like indie, they usually admit that this is well produced, harmonious, and catchy.

Let's take a trip back to the days when The Beatles just started using marijuana, making their music a little more psychadelic. Sort of a mix between Beach Boys, The Beatles and everything inbetween, 'The Discovery of a World' is a psychadelic masterpiece (or something close to one) that you won't put down for a while. From the little jam in 'Go' to the 'yeah yeah's of 'The Rainbow', The Apples In Stereo do a fine job of recreating the 60's/70's feel of music. Yes, it was created in 2000.

They all play such a variety of instruments! I hear a bongo, a flute, and a brass section in 'Go' alone! One of my favorites is 'The Rainbow' with a great catchy chorus that is reminiscent of sugar-pop, as I like to call it. 'Stream Running Over' is good too, with hand claps and acoustic guitar that will help you 'clear your mind' during a bad day at work! '20 Cases Suggestive Of...' is a bit heavier, a bit more distorted, and a bit less innocent than the previous 3 songs. It didn't lose a bit of greatness, though. If you're looking for music reminiscent of Beatles, look no further than 'Look Away'! It's catchy, with pianos and guitars and Ringo-esque drums and it's oh so sweet! Another goodie is 'I Can't Believe', another rocker piece on this great record. And guess what 'Submarine Dream' sounds like? Yep, you guessed it: The Beach Boys. (Sarcasm.)

Overall, it's a great, full album that you won't be putting down. Apples In Stereo aren't the most popular band, but the least popular bands are usually the best. If you like it, check out bands like the Beach Boys and the Beatles. If you haven't heard of those bands, well, that's your mistake for drowning in the crap you people call 'the music of today'.

After two servings of cold, tastless oatmeal in the form of "Fun Trick Noisemaker" and "Tone Soul Evolution," The Apples in stereo started serving cereal that, for the most part, stays crispy in milk. Nowhere is the Apples' new random-precision formula more evident than on 1999's "Her Wallpaper Reverie," an extended EP with a collection of excellent tracks strung together by a recurring link track. That album left the listener wondering what sort of full-length album the ever-improving Apples could achieve if they put their minds to it. "The Discovery of a World Inside the Moone" answers with an electric guitar riff and the word "Go!" shouted at the beginning of the first track. "Go" isn't just a great, rockin' album opener; it serves notice that as long as Robert Schneider and Hilarie Sidney are around, catchy, in-your-face pop music is in safe hands. Another jammin' gem, "The Rainbow," follows, preceding the album's first average track, "Stream Running Over." However, Hilarie meets what seems to be a one-song-per-album quota with a knockout punch in "20 Cases Suggestive of ...," a high-energy track featuring her great vocals and occasionally double-tracking them with Robert's. The single "Look Away," a satisfying, mid-tempo rocker with a psychedelic wink, is next. Track 6, "What Happened Then" is a letdown, and tracks 7 and 9, "I Can't Believe" and "All Right/Not Quite," sound a bit too similar. They sandwich a great slow number, though, in "Submarine Dream," a song reminiscent of "The Shiney Sea" from "Her Wallpaper Reverie.Read more ›
