"Man on Fire" sounded familiar, but it first really stood out to me when I watched the HBO documentary "The Diplomat" (another piece I'd highly recommend!). This song played with the closing credits I believe, perhaps during the film as well.
From beginning to end their music makes you happy. I replayed the vinyl about three times since I fell in love with all of their songs. I will have to back track and grab their previous album now as well.
Not as radio friendly as Up From Below but tremendous none the less. I would absolutely recommend this album to anybody. The songs make me happy and make you want to sing along to them.
The opening notes are promising, but then the CD slogs through a low-energy, low-inspiration set. I almost jumped with the first notes of "Fiya Wata" temporarily raised the tempo on my first listen, but this song isn't exactly a surprise -- it's been on their tour list for years! So, call it a sophomore slump, but this is a frustratingly forgettable effort from a band that really set a high bar for itself with its debut CD. Unless you're a completist, skip the CD and pick up the MP3 of the opening track. If you're looking for an alternative Edward Sharpe fix, go download their iTunes live studio mini-set -- very nice, and it includes a leaner, better live studio version of Fiya Wata. If you don't have Alex's solo CD, buy it!
Waiting for the next one from these guys with optimism..! Hopefully, the Zeros will hit it out of the park on the next one..?
