Synopsis

Amazon.com
Come has without a doubt made some of the most compelling guitar rock of the '90s. Cementing their legendary status in the indie rock world, the band has always pushed against limitations, playing music that has championed uncertain rhythms, unconventional guitar flourishes, and a beautifully abrasive sound. Set in motion by the distinctive voice of Thalia Zedek along with guitarist Chris Brokaw, the band sets off to explore uncharted sonic terrain on Gently Down the Stream. "Stomp" is quintessential Come with its jerky guitar urgency. "Sorry Too Late" is an emotional powerhouse, with Zedek's raspiness perfectly wedded to the song's blues tinge. "Saints Around My Neck" proves the band is a master of dynamics. Come's compositions may take some time to digest, but once you do, you can't help but come back for more. --Steve Gdula

Best since Eleven Eleven
William | San Francisco | 05/21/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is Come's best album since the debut, Eleven Eleven. Come to think of it, it may be even better than that one. Thalia Zedek and Chris Brokaw's guitars intertwine to make one of the most distinctive sounds in rock (really!) and they've only grown better at it. Zedek's gravelly voice colors "Saints Around My Neck" in a way that makes the vague lyrics especially unsettling. And Brokaw's vocals, which used to strike me as perfunctory, are starting to sound really good. They've got a new rhythm section backing them up, but the way the songs build up and slow down, they sound as if they've been playing together for years. Sorry to get all anti-techno here, but just try programming these kinds of dynamics and emotions into your Groovebox."
