Dreamy, Intelligent Songs That Move You

"I recently re-discovered this gem after several years of having it gather dust on my shelf, and boy am I glad I did. It is a real masterpiece from an under-rated band.Poi weaves together guitars, drums, violins, flutes, cellos, pianos and more to create an enchanting and driving sound -- one that is never as dischordant as you would expect. Each of the 11 songs is strong on its own, but together they play out like a supremely well-crafted symphony. "Complicated" forces you to get to your feet and dance, while "Pomegranate" is a more mellow exploration of sounds. The lyrics to "God's Gallipoli" are worth memorizing for their power. This is a diverse and challenging album that may not be immediately accessable to all listeners, but I urge you to stick with it. You will be richly rewarded."

"OK, people, I'm talking to you. No five star review, I go by Rolling Stone standards and this is a three star album. Several good tracks but there wouldn't be so many remixes of the songs on other albums if they were happy with the final product. PDP was still cutting their techno teeth and didn't refine their sound until Electric Plumawhatever. But, honestly you could do worse, if this is your first PDP purchase, go with Liquid White Light because it captures their live sound very well. Side Note: Don't you hate five star reviews for everything? I do too, and three stars is nothing to be ashamed of."

"I have very broad music tastes, and I find a bit of every genre in this album, which might be one of the most diverse albums to be classified as 'rock'. The lyrics are especially wonderful. Don't miss "Sandra at Beach" if you're listening to clips before purchasing."
