4.0 out of 5 stars Weird, ambitious pop gem January 30, 2007
Format:Audio CD
If you're reading this, you're likely one of four people:

1) Sugarplastic fanatic monitoring all comments about all Sugarplastic albums.

2) Curious newcomer

3) Owner of other Sugarplastic albums but not this one

4) member of Sugarplastic.

Hey group 4: make some new music and/or come over to my house in silverlake and let's listen to my satellite radio and discuss the death of various things.

Group 3: buy this record immediately, you won't be disappointed. In fact, this may be their most ambitious and strange full-length record. The various experiments contained herein rarely miss the mark. Pepper in some Kevin Ayers and Ween to what you're used to and let your brain simmer. Not much driving rock like you might find on "Bang" or "Radio Jejune" but a great compliment to same. It's almost in keeping with the box of colored vinyl I have from the Sugarplastic's early days, when they were even stranger.

Group 2: Sugarplastic plays pop music that seems to have its roots in the Beatles, Beach Boys ("Smile" era, especially) and XTC. One can hear traces of the above and early Talking Heads, Sonic Youth, the Shins and many others, but they've really forged a sound all their own. They signed a record deal with Geffen and put out "Bang, The Earth Is Round", which of course flopped, not because it wasn't good, but, well, that's open for discussion. Lots of good artists were put through the major label meat grinder in the '90s. Geffen did the same thing to a fine San Francisco band called the Mommyheads (all groups might want to try tracking down "Bingham's Hole" by them, by the way). All the other Sugarplastic albums are on indie labels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tomorrow's Classic Album Today July 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The Sugarplastic is easily one of America's finest pop bands. I hardly know where to begin with the praise: the lyrics are thought-provoking, hilarious, surreal; the melodies are almost insanely catchy--listen to a Sugarplastic song once, and it's in your mind forever; the quality of the musicianship is staggering. Numerous instruments are layered into the mix and songs often change into delightful, unexpected forms as they proceed. The band usually takes three or four years between albums, but the wait is always worth it. "Will" is fantastic and gets better with every listen. The folks at Geffen Records must have cabbages growing in their heads to have let this band slip through their fingers.

5.0 out of 5 stars another brilliant record from this neglected band June 14, 2005
By bobaloo
Format:Audio CD
this, the sugarplastic's fifth CD (i think?), is rife with terrific melodies, sharp riffs, curious words--it's sweetly

melodious, angular, strangely experimental and delightfully

dreamy as well. "the runaround" rocks like a "nicer" sonic youth; "what the boy said" could be an outtake from XTC's

"the big express" (that is a good thing!) and "hecate" is utterly transcendental, mesmerizing, beautiful, enchanting, wowing. it is a total crime this band is not more well known: they are probably sick to death of hearing that. buy this

and put it on before you go to sleep--it'll be a benediction to your dreams. what an astounding accomplishment. i live for this kinda pop.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky? Definitely. Their Best? Maybe. December 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The Sugarplastic are one of those supertalented bands that never get the credit due them. Each recording is a mini-masterpiece. With Will they take pop experimentalism to new levels (at the expense of melodicism at times). There is even an attempt to join the songs thematically. Echoes of artists as diverse as Andy Partridge, The Sandpipers, Django Reinhardt and The Beach Boys can be heard.

The Sugarplastic's songs are immediately catchy yet don't get boring after repeated listenings. I've been playing 7x7x7 in my car for a month and haven't gotten tired of it.

Fans of XTC, The Decemberists, Kaiser Chiefs and Doves will enjoy this disc.

Maybe not their best but this is still classic stuff.
