CD Reviews

I hate sad indie rock. I LOVE this.

(5 out of 5 stars)

""The Ugly Organ" was a birthday gift from a good friend, and it only took one listen to make it onto my "IF YOU DON'T LIKE THIS, YOU HAVE NO SOUL" album list. Cello, keyboards and stark guitar dissonance add to the album's overall mood of soul-crushing darkness, something far sadder than sorrow. "The Ugly Organ" is probably the darkest CD in my collection, beating out my numerous goth and doom metal albums.

Almost every track on its own is capable of dishing out the chills to listeners, particularly the album's closer, "Staying Alive," which can only be classified as "epic," "haunting," and "effing brilliant." All the greatest elements and quirks found throughout the other songs on the album come together in "Staying Alive" - cello, choir, strings, the whole shebang. Most of the songs are on the short side, but each is a tiny work of storytelling art that deserves to be preserved in a glass case for the rest of all eternity."
