Great new record from Polyphonic Spree. More along the lines of their last effort ("Fragile Army"), in terms of tightened-up pop tunes rather than 8-minute orchestral numbers, the record blasts through catchy songs in the vein of Bowie and the Beatles, but with an originality that could only be Spree. This is the stuff smiles are made of. Pick it up and I guarantee you it'll be impossible to put it down.

The Spree is back with their latest, "Yes, it's True," and life couldn't get much better. This set of music continues their goal of bringing a positive message within a rock environment. This album has a more polished sound than their previous albums, but it doesn't veer far from their previous work. If your a fan of this amazing band and their vision, you can't go wrong buying this album, though any true devotee probably already has it. If you have a chance to see then live (I have twice), DO NOT pass up that opportunity. You will not be disappointed.

Aside from their general joy and excitement for life, The Polyphonic Spree's most valuable assets in warding off the forces of evil have always been their immensely powerful brass, string and woodwind sections. On their previous proper studio album, The Fragile Army, they chose to scale back the symphonic elements a bit but they were still very present and it did not hinder the quality of their music. Yes, It's True finds them rejecting their true nature almost entirely. The horns and orchestra are barely present and when they are, they're often buried in the mix. The bigger issue is that frontman Tim DeLaughter seems uninspired as a songwriter. Whether done in a positive or negative light, the mention of Facebook in a song always makes me throw up a little, and "You're Golden" is no exception. It's hard to be too angry though because DeLaughter seems to be one of the sweetest, warmest, charismatic individuals in the biz. As long as he and/or a version of the Spree is around, I'll be a fan.

What I enjoyed about PPS recording career is each of their 3 studio albums were stronger than its predecessor, with the fourth record possibly being the band career defining record. But then nothing for 6 years, due to side projects & lack of funding.
Then in 2013 arrives the self-financed "Yes, it's true". Gone is the melting pot of sounds, with epic quirky musical landscapes, replaced with a more polished straight-laced album, think Flaming lips "Yoshimi Battles..." but with a bit of Beatle & Beach Boy thrown into the mix.
As with other reviews, this is a bit of a slow burner, which is normally the case when any act alters their musical direction (there's always a bit of dragging their fans kicking & screaming when it comes' to changing the formula!).
So all in all a fascinating well crafted album, that continues to reveal it's self, with every repeat listen, let's hope its' PPS break through record then perhaps they can stop Salisbury's using their music.

For the devoted Spree fan, this will not disappoint. In fact this maybe their best album to date. Their orchestral pop sound keeps evolving and changing shape. It is surprisingly different, but the spirit and heart of the Spree is still perfectly intact.

I was surprised with this record for sure.

'Together We're Heavy' is in the top ten of my all time greatest albums, and while I enjoy 'The Fragile Army' I feel like it was a step away from that, I know this sounds silly, magical, cult-like, transcendent journey that 'Together We're Heavy' can take you on.

While this record has more in common with 'The Fragile Army' than it does the band's earlier work, I still really enjoy the songs, especially "Popular by Design" and "Hold Yourself Up" and "You Don't Know Me."

Glad they made this album!

but of course I would expect nothing else from the mastermind Tim DeLaughter. This album is real, full of feeling and has been on permanent rotation since it's release. Do yourself a favor and give it a listen.

If you're the kind of person who doesn't allow anything other than a guitar, a bass, a drum kit, and maybe some keyboards on a rock album, you may have some difficulties with the Polyphonic Spree. The incarnation on this album includes a lot of low brasses, as well as strings, a harp, and some choral singers -- and that's just to start with. But for the open-minded, this is an adventurous, well-made album.
