CD Reviews

Great cd
Brett M. Hulstrom | Portland, OR | 07/11/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I happened to catch Dolorean opening for Cat Power and fell in love with their sound. The songs are wonderfully written and so insightful you feel as though a friend is sharing their most intimate moments. This cd has been in high rotation on my player and have turned on many friends to it who love it as well. Go see them live - especially in a small venue. There is still great music out there and Alex/Dolorean is playing some of it. Buy this cd, you won't be disappointed."
Undiscovered band of the century

"I like these guys more every time I listen to this album. I was fortunate to see them open for Doves last spring in their hometown Portland. After the set I felt like I was friends with the whole band. All their stuff is good, but this album stands out. Can't wait for the next one. Keep going guys...those who do hear it, love it. Sound similar to Great Lake Swimmers, another undiscovered great band."
Dolorean's remarkable 2nd album - paving the way for great t
Peter G. Simpson | Bucks UK | 03/05/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After their experimental first album "Sudden Oak" which showed great promise - "Not Exotic" finds Dolorean in a much more focused mode. Al James is a great songwriter with a strong ear for melodies that stick around, and an interesting way with lyrics. He has a great expressive voice too. The tracks I really enjoy on this album include "Jenny Place Your Bets" "Sleeperhold" "Traded for Fire" and "Still Here With Me". Sometimes they use a narrative style on brooding songs like "Hannibal, Mo" (and also "Benito's Dust - not included here but available elsewhere as a single release). This is an album for those times when you want to be quiet and thoughful, but it's absolutely beautiful and a real grower. The themes and styles on display here are developed further on their subsequent release " Violence In The Snowy Fields" and now I can't wait for their next release due later this year. In the meantime, catch up with their catalogue - it's very rewarding."
