By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 14, 2007
Format: Audio CD
"Horn of Plenty" is an odd debut album for a band, since it was created before the band proper existed.

Instead, the first Grizzly Bear album is largely the efforts of Ed Droste, and he spreads himself over several genres -- freakfolk, pop, psychedelica and post-rock, layered together into gentle, hypnotic melodies. It's like sitting through a fuzzy, colourful dream and waking just in time for the remixes.

It opens with strange animal noises, and a reverberent hum... and a gentle guitar under a thin layer of murmuring keyboard. It sounds like someone doped Grandaddy. "I'm a deep sea diver with my fins/and underneath your current I do swim," Droste murmurs distantly. "I'm a deep sea diver losing air/and around here I'm sad swimming/you don't care..."

Things get slightly more upbeat in the gentle tripfolk of "Don't Ask" ("I fell into your arms that night/Don't ask"), before trickling into a series of fuzzy, gentle songs: exotic scratchy electropop, fluting indie-rock, ghostly ballads, lo-fi tunes that sound like they were recorded over a walkie-talkie, and shifting epics of shimmering freakfolk. It all finishes up with "This Song," a gentle guitar pop melody that may have a beat, but is as drowsy as a lullaby.

And this release has a second disc of remixed songs, which gives the mellow songs new twists -- jangling strings, a psychedelic reworking, funky dance beats, gentle electronic waves, maracas, grimy rock edges, carnival rock, hard techno, and what sounds like radio static. And these are all done by some brilliant artists -- Final Fantasy, Dntel, Ariel Pink, Efterklang, the Castanets, Alpha, Solex and Safety Scissors.

Grizzly Bear doesn't sound anything like its name would imply -- no rough edges, no rock, no wildness.

this album grew on me a lot this year, so much so I went back and got the remixes which are also strong, but personally I find the originals far more captivating. interestingly ignored by many, this album is a slow burner of quiet but haunting and gorgeous songs. definitely needs close listening before it's subtle beauty reveals itself.

It is evident within three minutes of this album that this is something special. Unlike the usual self-recorded crowd, Grizzly Bear uses their constrained space and uses it to blanket their music with a layer of aural insulation. Through these crackles through time, prepare to feel like you are in the woods. This album is one of the most moving I have found in years.

That first track Deep Sea Diver.

Oh man.

That is so sweet when that electric guitar comes in at the end there.

It's underwater space time...you know what I'm talking about. That sweet sweet spot.

And then the whole rest of the album.

Not a bad song on it.

I like their second album as well, but not as much...as this one.

Sounds like nothing else. Sounds like the inside of my brain.

I've had this album for a couple of years now, so I didn't get the remixes. I heard em. They're ok. A nice little treat, but the album its self...finds its way in to CD player...often.
