Product Description

Put simply, Everclear is American Music Club's masterpiece. Benefiting immensely from improved production values, the album crystallizes the band's often erratic vision into a unified, endlessly complex whole. While the arrangements are typically diffuss 'Crabwalk' is shambling rockabilly, 'Royal Cafe' is sweet country-pop, and 'Rise' isanthemic alt-rock-there is a consistency of tone and a sense of place running throughout these songs that is absent from the band's other records. Similarly, Mark Eitzel's compositions achieve an uncommon emotional balance, never once slipping into pathos or melodrama; the atmospheric 'Miracle on 8th Street' and 'The Confidential Agent' offer cin‚ma v‚rit‚ evocations of relationships at the breaking point, while the brute force of alcoholic laments like 'Sick of Food' or the funereal 'Why Won't You Stay' is staggering.

Amazon.com

The difficult fifth album. Recorded for another label and well overbudget, Everclear both suffers and excels for its production shortcomings. A thick wash of reverb has been thrown over the proceedings and songs are either hopelessly buried in the ambient sludge ("The Confidential Agent") or enhanced to supersonic glory ("Sick of Food"). Singer Mark Eitzel's lyrics are increasingly more despondent, but he's spot-on beautiful loser territory for the most part. "Why Won't You Stay," "Ex-Girlfriend," and "Dead Part of You" are all haunting elegies to a past that no longer exists but where their weight cannot be discounted. --Rob O'Connor
