By William Merrill VINE VOICE on August 18, 2009
Format: Audio CD
As Tall As Lions' album called You Can't Take It With You is an unusual collection of songs, defying easy categorization. The overall vibe is an atmospheric melange of prog-rock, jazz, funk and bits of other styles. There are a lot of gentle, unobtrusive moments such as the swirl of synths, bass and muted trumpet and that opens the fifth track, "Duermete." After the intro, guitars gradually enter and then drums. The slow build of the song is vaguely reminiscent of Sigur Ros' music, a comparison strengthened by some of the lead vocalists' penchant for falsetto singing. (They alternate lead vocals on different songs.) ATAL also frequently use a lush harmonic mesh of backing vocals, though, something that makes their sound more distinctive. Along with the melodies, I like the ambient interludes such as an electronic meditation that closes out "Lost My Mind" and the quiet yet cathedral-big instrumental segment that segues into "In Case Of Rapture," a big contrast since "Rapture" turns out to be the album's most rockin' cut. Actually, I shouldn't give the impression that the CD is all atmospherics, as the band does lay down some heavier sounds elsewhere too, as on "Is This Tomorrow?" But ultimately it's the softer passages I found most memorable, especially the songs "Sleepyhead" and "Lost My Mind." The latter tune is especially haunting, as with PJ Harvey or Thom Yorke in their more introspective moods.

I happened to catch these guys as an opening act for Minus the Bear at a small club. They came on for their set announcing that their lead singer was absent but nonetheless they would play their set without him. Despite an awful mix and a cramped stage, they seemed to be going through some interesting chord work and signature times. Plus they were clearly committed that the show must go on. I though "here's a band with the balls to put it out there, so at least they deserve a proper listen." I picked up a copy of "You Can't Take It with You" the next day. I was more than pleasantly surprised, and sadly wishing that I had seen their complete entourage the previous night. "You Can't Take It With You" is a real stunner. From the drum pounding opener "Circles" to the R&B tinges of the title track to the wicked timing of "Duermete", Danny Nigro and friends perform with an easiness that belies their years. Nigro seems to be channeling the ghost of Jeff Buckley with his stratospheric falsetto. He's a quietly chrasmatic front man that can wisp the listener along with out shouting or bombast. Their are no duds to be found. I echo all the thoughts of other reviewers that ATAL has a bright future. And created a bright spot in an otherwise old and jaded reviewer. May they shine brightly.

No words can truly describe the emotions that I felt after listening through this album the first time. I was speechless, It was everything I could ever expect out of an album. Each song is far from redundant and you feel like youre listening to an album rather than the same song on loop. It kicks off the music with Circles, which is my personal favorite, and the energy level never stops.
I purchased the Vinyl copy and it arrived in great condition. The packaging is very professional; sturdy and the artwork is fantastic. Lyrics are printed out on the inside of the sleeve, which is a nice touch. The wax itself - clear, which is a first for me - I thought it was actually really neat. It does provide for a challenge finding the track you want since the track grooves from the other side are also able to be seen.
If you have never heard of As tall as Lions, I would very much recommend this album as a first listen. If you are still on the fence, youtube Circles and see for yourself. But act quickly, they broke up: physical copies my not last much longer.

ATAL's new album, "You Can't Take it with You" is a phenomenal album. Their sound has evolved so much since "Into the Flood". The use of wind instruments has increased my love for them; the trumpet being my favorite. The vocal melodies never cease to impress. ATAL has a unique signature to their music, its a very rare genre to find in the southwest, so it's definitely one of my favorite bands. These guys are great. I suggest seeing them live as well, because nothing beats live performances.

Putting more soul in one album than many artists put in every album they own, As Tall as Lions are maturing as musicians. The album may disappoint fans of the self titled album, as it loses some of the unique sound (which to this day, I can't adequately explain), but in return, we find a new sound takes its place, which is as beautiful and captivating as before. Ironically, the songs that sound the most like the last album (excepting In Case of Rapture) tend to be the weaker songs in the album, such as Go Easy. The true gems of the album beautifully exploit this new sound, and when needed, show everything from explosive energy to beautifully executed restraint.

Circles, of course, starts the album out with a bang, being an excellent choice of a single. Other key songs include You Can't Take it with You, in which the song itself is an incredibly neat idea, but doesn't seem to go anywhere towards the end. In Case of Rapture sounds like it could have fit in well with the last album, and is an excellent song with no real weaknesses. Lost My Mind is positively gorgeous, if you have the patience for it.

The problem with this album is that it isn't instantly accessible. It takes a while to understand its ins and outs, but once you get to understanding the songs, they are well worth discovering. It just might take a few tries.
