Irish duo The Devlins draw their fondness for melody and various harmonies from their European decedents (Nick Drake, The Replacements, etc.), but they appear equally fascinated with the guitar-fronted power of good old American rock n roll. You can almost picture their suburban garage studio with posters of Springsteen plastered all around. On their sophomore release, Waiting , The Devlins get a little more comfortable with their split personality. Their real strength resides in the vocal chords of Colin Devlin, who can make even the band's edgiest songs feel like summertime ballads, as he does on the gentle title track and "Surrender." While Waiting can't claim extraordinary range or virtuosity, it makes up for it in promise and raw pleasure. --Nick Heil

"I must confess, I'd never heard of the Devlins until I bought the Six Feet Under soundtrack. I'm in love with "Waiting". It's honestly the most beautiful song I've heard in awhile. It makes me think of someone very dear to my heart.
On the strength of this one song, I plan to buy the entire album. If you like the Devlins, please check out Neutral Milk Hotel."

"I first heard The Devlins at Tori Amos' Phoenix, Arizona concert and was blown away! I love the lyrics and the sound. This CD is well worth the money and I'm looking forward to getting Drift- the Devlins first album."

"From the start..the shuffling noise the first few key strokes on the piano, the mood of your heart is taken on a trip, a journey or perhaps a vivid exploration of feeling, something deep within. There are no songs on this album that don't get to me and make me listen and absolutely fall in love with every chord and word. Something about the rhythm draws you in, something about the cool whispers that become oh so much warmer in the vocals that devour you and in the end you are asked simply if you will 'kill with me tonight' and I think in that point of the trance you might just say yes. What choice did you have? It was just so natural so right that you listen - that you feel every inch of yourself become part of what you hear."
