William Olsson's Lost Girls and Love Hotels finds optimism in its message that life tears us apart and puts us back together again differently.
Bright Eyes may not technically be emo, but they are transcendently expressive, beatifically melancholic. Down in the Weeds is just the statement of grounding that we need as a respite from the churning chaos around us. William Wyler's Roman Holiday crosses the postcard genre with a hardy trope: Old World royalty seeks escape from stuffy, ritual-bound, lives for a fling with the modern world, especially with Americans. But for all of my complaints, I was floored on occasion. When The Impossible thrill shines, it soars.
The middle of the CD is wonderful, as are the first and last track, and it was an utter joy to hear Daddy G of Massive Attack lending his pipes to the jazzy song "Wishes. So, all in all, The Impossible is a tad disappointing, at times brialliant, at times confusing, but most definitely satisfactory for a fan of the band or the genre although Alpha are truly in a genre of their own.
Remember: three stars means GOOD! I have listened to this album and the band's, Come from Heaven. This album has some deeper electronic effects than Come from Heaven. The songs are accessable.
If you are familiar with trip hop bands like Mescalito, you may find some interesting simularities to One Path in a Million. The lead female singers voice is inviting. It is a fine spin for a mellow, not too out there, lounges background music. I believe this band is capable of better, but I like this better than Come from Heaven. Give it a spin and you decide! I've been waffling. I've waffled. I wasn't sure what to make of this album when I first heard it.
I mean, I liked it, sure, but how much? And why? Well, to the first question, I answer, 'a lot. As to the 'why? I hadn't really heard anything but one other song by Alpha, so I don't know how similar their older stuff is to 'The Impossible Thrill', but this album is definitely different than anything else I've ever heard.
