Movies With Heroes
Nothing Here is Perfect - Ci Records
Listening to the Pennsylvanians "Movies with Heroes" album is like a retro trip back to college. Back when 91X made the radio good. Of course 91X rarely does it these days. This album makes you want to go out with your friends, have some drinks, turn up the radio and drive fast. "Nothing" is a single that could be playing on 91X today
The Robert Smith/Cure comparison, most obvious on "Ink" is very fair and also makes you think of earlier days. The guitar plays with the melodies of the singing and the songs are mainly anthems and straight, solid pieces, with lifting choruses and a "Granddaddy" noise emanating here and there.
This 5 piece make tight numbers, all are less than 5 minutes. This album was mixed by Ed Rose. Release date of March 28, 2006.
The record mellows out a little towards the end and gives you a little breathing room with the sweet "Moth and Rust". The bells at the beginning remind you of who you are. You can hear some more modern sounds with some nice keys, guitars and computer sounds. The voice is relaxed and soars easy into the big lift. I would like to hear a couple of more like the beginning of this to really relax into it. Overall there are some very nice songs on this album.
