CD Reviews

Maybe the Most Beautiful Album Ever by Anybody
LHB | Dallas, TX | 04/02/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's hard for me not to engage in hyperbole when talking about Flying Saucer Attack. Each of their albums reaches a very deep place that no other music, including classical, comes close to. This is David Pearce's most beautiful album, so beautiful that it's very difficult for me to listen to. As someone once said "The problem with beauty isn't finding it, it's bearing it." Other reviews of this album stress it's greater reliance on acoustic instruments and more conventional melodies than their first album. Maybe so, but the conventional melodies are unspeakably beautiful and like nothing I've ever heard before, and they tend to be nestled in as awesome a bed of ecstatic, shimmering noise as anything in fsa's catalog. "She is the Daylight" ends the album, after the three more intense pieces that proceed it, on a note of wistful tenderness that might remind you of what it really felt like when you first fell in love. Somebody, please play this at my funeral."
The best rock 'n roll record that I own.

""Thanks to all escpecially those who understand." The most existentialistic, surreal record that I own. Acoustic contrasted to apocalytic electric "sheets of sound" similar to what Coltrane was trying to do (?) only in the language of pure electric instrumentation. In my opinion David Pearce is one of the greatest electric guitarists of all time, that we will ever hear. Incomparable style, more organic than My Bloody Valentine, more sensible than Medicine, more chaotic that The Verve. My singular inspiration, forget the rest of rock 'n roll. Organic contrasted to electric, night contrasted to the pure light of day. I am still scarred to listen to the first track when I am alone in the room. This record is oddly spiritual, erriely existential. The very finest "noisepop" electric guitar that we will ever hear? How does he make those sheets of unadulterated pure noiseful melodies? Some things are better left a mystery, left unsaid. This is the best rock 'n roll record that I own."
