Greatest Neo-Psychedelic Album - EVER
Wileytown | Morristown, TN United States | 05/26/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)
"One of my favorite records! Fans of the Byrds and early Pink Floyd will find a home here. Essential and required!EMERGENCY's appearance in '84 was mindblowing. An album of its type had not been seen since '67-'68. Given the trends of the time, it was totally unexpected, but ohhhh soooo welcomed!!The album stands on its own feet, relying on inspiration from its forbearers instead of nostalgic plagarism. The DNA might be obvious, but the mutation is completely unique - as it should be! Ghostly Floyd-inspired organ lines collide with Byrdsy Rickenbacker chimes and harmonies. Along with True West, The Long Ryders, Green on Red and Dream Syndicate, I was hopeful that a second golden age of psychedelic-folk music was beginning to flourish. Alas, this was not to be. By '87 Rain Parade and most its compatriots would be gone. But for a while there.........Oh well, at least we were left with this wonderful record!!A WORD OF URGENCY: This disk has had a history of going in and out of print quickly. If you are a fan of fine psychedelic music, buy it immediately! It deserves a rightful place along side PIPER AT THE GATES OF DAWN (Floyd), NOTORIOUS BYRD BROTHERS (Byrds), and ANTHEM OF THE SUN (Dead)!Enjoy!!!!"
Best American Band from the 80's

"This is a classic. If you can find it, get it. These guys were the only american band worthy of recognition to come out of the 80's. If your a fan of dreamy, psychedelic pop in the vein of The Beatles, The Birds, The Kinks, and Pink Floyd, and the Zombies, you'll love this. Believe me."
Psychedelia-Lite; An Overlooked Piece of Trippy Nostalgia

"Pop Kulcher Review: The Rain Parade were one of the better bands in Southern California's early-80s "paisley underground," presenting a laid-back, neo-psychedelic sound that made for excellent (if relatively unexciting) background music. This album is full of melodic, meandering gems which hang in their air and wash over you. Despite a reasonable amount of reverb creating an odd distancing effect, the psychedelic feel is created more through relaxed pacing and jangling guitars than through special effects. A thoroughly enjoyable outing for sixties afficianados. (Guitarist David Roback later formed Opal with the Dream Syndicate's Kendra Smith, as well as the better known Mazzy Star.)"
