It's About Time!

"Lync's "These Are Not Fall Colors" ranks as my favorite album in the past ten years, if not my favorite all time. In fact, it is the first album I have bought since high school which begged a second listen after the discs first set of revolutions. You'll not be sorry for parting with your money to purshcase this disc. The disc's first three songs are king but the intensity does not wane in the later tunes. Buy this disc or I will come to your house and cook liver and onions.In revisting this review three years later, I want to amend it by stating that this ranks as my favorite disc of all time. I still listen to it on an almost daily basis and do not grow tired of the energy and urgency. "Silver Spoon Glasses" ranks as one of the best "love" songs of all time. It is especially great if you have been overlooked for another guy. Ah, the pathetic days of high school love! If only I had written a song like this when I was in high school or even in my first years of college, I would still be in a band."

"I bought this LP back in '95 on a complete whim. I knew nothing of the band, had heard no reviews good, bad, or otherwise. Hey, it's on K Records, I thought, how far wrong could I go? Amazing to think I used to buy records that way, when nowadays I need a sworn affidavit from a realiable party assuring me that it's worth seeking out and downloading 30-second previews of the songs. But in the 90s, if you were into indie rock, you could get away with it. There was just that much great rock music poking out of every corner.

A nice flashback, but about this record: it holds up beautifully after 10+ years. In fact, I re-purchased this on CD not long ago because the main riff from "Cue Cards" randomly popped into my head and I couldn't get it out. This is some 7 years after the last time I listened to the record, and it took me almost a week to figure out what it was! Lync's debut is a dynamic and melodic rock album, moderately experimental but never treading too far into uncharted waters or -- horrors! -- "post-rock", capped off with some truly great vocal performances. All bands that aspire to a half-screamy/half-sung vocal aesthetic should use this record as their template. I'd like to say "Fugazi channeled through a stripped-down Olympia pop band" but that's oversimplifying things; Lync truly occupied a sonic territory all their own. I don't think I really appreciated how good this band was back then, perhaps spoiled by the glut of great bands cropping up all over the place, all vying for my attention. I'm so glad I had a chance to rediscover them.

Anyway, I ramble. Find a copy, and buy two."
A glimpse of almost greatness...

"They were a great example of the Olympia band scene, with a sound now emulated by the likes of Modest Mouse (and I even heard some of this album in R.E.M. "Monster" -- heck they were in Seattle at the time). Alas, they split up, but their final performance was almost worth it."
