Editorial Reviews

Reissue of this 2003 album from the Kansas-based Post-Rock band. After many critically acclaimed releases on Deep Elm, Appleseed Cast appears with a new & highly anticipated full-length for Tiger Style. This just may be the crowning jewel of their career. The album incorporates lush melodies, honest lyrics and exhilarating dynamics. The forever evolving sound of the band once again transcends any preconceived notions of what they are capable of, as they continue to explore atmospheric textures as well as true rock elements. Produced by Ed Rose (Coalesce, Get Up Kids, Casket Lottery).

The Appleseed Cast does it again. I need to say from the outset that many people think that Low Level Owl is the pinnacle of the
Cast's work, and with good reason. It was truly groundbreaking. But just like Pink Floyd after Dark Side of the Moon, or Radiohead after OK Computer - how does a band make a smart follow up to a brilliant work without riding in on the coat tails of the previous album's success? Wish You Were Here. Kid A. Two Conversations.
Thematically this record borders on "concept album" status. What we have here is a tour de force through the thoughts and actions of a boy and a girl through the different phases of their relationship. What is so poignant about this design is that each song musically makes you feel what the characters are feeling. The standout track, Fight Song, chronicles the screeching halt in the relationship when each character, fingers pointed, admit their unfaithfulness. The music to this song sounds exactly like a breakup. The chorus is so intense it makes you want to cry: "As the lies come out it's the end. As the tears flow out it's the end." The next track, Sinking, is an unbearably slow, angry, post-breakup dirge and The Page picks up a little bit, but then next album standout is Innocent Vigilant Ordinary, in which one character admits he was wrong, asks for forgiveness and restates his love.
Musically this album is top notch. The production is nothing short of amazing. While the quiet, buried vocals of Low Level Owl were intriguing, Chris Crisci's crisp, soothing vocals are one of the outstanding points of this record. Josh's drumming is another definite high point.

Like many others, I heard TAC while browsing in a local Disc Exchange. They were playing Low Level Owl I, and in the short time I was there, I had figured out that I wasn't leaving without finding out who it was.

LLO I & II are great. But so is, Two Conversations. If you are familiar with the earlier works, you can tell right away that Crisci's voice is more forefront, but his voice is also one of the reasons I started liking them to start with... along with the drums, guitars and spacey sounds.

People find it hard to let bands evolve, but this is a prime example of a band evolving but keeping their original sound.

The songs are somewhat shorter, but I think they will appeal to a larger audience.

If you like their other albums, definitely buy this one.

After my glowing reviews for their last two records,Low Level Owl I & II, I find myself almost at a loss for words to further describe this amazing band called The Appleseed Cast. In the past I have given them the utmost praise for their ability to create music with such craftsmanship and detail that to listen to their music is as amazing as listening to Beethoven or Mozart.
Two Conversations is their 6th studio album on their new label, tiger style records. This is there first record without one single instrumental. It is a fitting choice since LLO I and II were filled to the brink with them. This record returns to the Mare Vitalis sound but it smoothes the rougher edges of that record and is much more poignant and sad. It tells the story (or rather two stories) of a couple, the details are still blurry to my mind, but it's obvious alot is going on between them. The lyrics never stray and keep the ideas about these two flowing constantly.
Their is a mist of poetry in their music that I do not find other bands possess. Not just in the lyrics but in the song arrangement, and over all album construction. The Record ends on a surprisingly happy note and left me wanting much more. Its their shortest record to date at only 41 minutes, but you gotta give em a break after their almost two hour masterpiece LLO I & II, they probably did not want to do another mammoth record.
This record is a simple joy, one of life's few remaining pleasures. Highly recommended for fans of RadioHead, Sunny Day Real Estate, Foo Fighters, or Dashboard Confessional. They sound nothing like those other bands, but it gives you an idea of sorts. I hope this record gets the CAST some much deserved recognition. Get in on the ground floor now, you'll never regret it.

I was turned onto the Cast by a buddy who is a personal friend of the singer, so I'm admittedly somewhat biased towards them... but I would have become a fan anyway.

There aren't many bands out there that can use music to weave a story, and do it well. With Two Conversations they not only did it, they brought two stories together and did it with a style and grace that you rarely see. Maybe they went a little pop on this album, but so what? It's not like the departure Beck made going from Odelay to Midnite Vultures.

And if anyone gets the chance to see them live, take it! The Cast sound fantastic in concert.

The Appleseed Cast (who luckily, after almost breaking up, are still together with the replacement of Cobra in the form of Nathan from the Casket Lottery) are back with their 5th (4th proper if LLO I & II are considered a single album) full length album in the form of Two Conversations.

Two Conversations is a loose concept album based on the concept that album is carrying a conversation between two people from the beginning to the end. Singer/guitarist and lyricist Chris Crisci developed the idea in an attempt to bring vocals back to the forefront of TAC's music.

In previous albums lyrics had been written during the recording process or after music was already laid down and were mainly used as another instrument, not a voice above the music. Really, the addition of thought-provoking lyrics takes this TAC album and stacks it right next to Mare Vitalis and Low Level Owl.

Songs like "Fight Song" and "innocent vigilant ordinary" drive the album back to the days of Mare Vitalis with their powerful, "effect-less" guitars and driving rhythm section. While tracks like "How Life Can Turn" and #4 are the calmer, Low Level Owl esque songs.

This album is amazing, the only problems about it really are #7 isn't that great and Crisci omitted the lyrics from the liner's, which seems like an odd choose for a concept relying on lyrics.
