Synopsis

Amazon.com
The self-titled debut by the London trio Drugstore is a moody, atmospheric guitar album that could be viewed as England's answer to Mazzy Star. Thankfully, guitarist-vocalist Isabel Monteiro is a much more galvinizing performer than Hope Sandoval, and tunes such as "Speaker 12" and "Super Glider" rock a lot harder than anything David Roback has done in a while. A native of Brazil, Monteiro has a huge voice that belies her diminutive (4' 10") size. --Jim DeRogatis

CD Reviews

"Funny How the Stars Look Far Away"
Paul Khoury | Nassau Bay, TX USA | 07/09/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this album never having heard of drugstore before. I picked it up used on cassette for cheap. Being a fan of psychedelic music, I was intrigued by the cover. This album is cranberry style mid nineties grunge with an element of screechy guitar experimentation. "If" is definately a highlight for me. Isabel's sad voice and melancholy lyrics afford the music an eerie, hair-on-end quality which I find hypnotic. This mildly progressive self-titled debut if definately worth the purchase."
Sexy voice, loud guitars, and great music. What more can yo

"The music is great. the lyrics are too. Such songs as "devil", "speaker 12", and "favorite sinner" are thought-prevoking. Love, breakup, sex, alcohol/drug abuse are all covered here. And my goodness when she whispers "slow down honey" at the end of "accelerate", i instantly get shivers, at that time of the song I fall in love with her. She has a voice that is similar to Hope Sandoval but she seems more sincere than the Mazzy Star singer."
