Synopsis

Amazon.com
Occasionally reminiscent in tone (and titles--try "Behind the Scenes of the Sounds & the Times") of Love's psychedelic masterwork Forever Changes, the fourth Swervedriver album demonstrates that there's still a lot to be done and said with the concurrently heavy and airy music once known as "shoegazing." On 99th Dream, the band's quest for transcendence takes it beyond the road celebrations that made its name so apropos into lyrics that often counsel trying to fly. This music makes you feel as if you could just about do it. --Rickey Wright

CD Reviews

Up from the sea...
D. Ingram | Washington, DC | 11/23/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Swervedriver are the type of band that gets better and better with age.

Sadly, they didn't catch on enough to sustain beyond 4 studio lps...but Adam Franklin has continued the arc that began with raise...and culminated with 99th dream...in Toshack Highway (they are also worth repeated listens).

The swervies will forever be one of my favorite bands...and this lp is their much underappreciated swansong. 99th dream, up from the sea and these times are the highlights...weaving textures of sound and fury and pathos.

Call me biased, call me sentimental...just don't call me while I'm listening to my swervedriver cds."

"I think this is a phenomenal album. The songs aren't too short, and it's a lovely mix of melodic riffs and catchy lyrics. I highly reccommend this to anyone."

"Swervedriver has been my favorite band since their first release - Raise. Although not many of my friends have given them much of a chance. There songs are very emmotional.It takes more than one listen. Being an artist, I listen to Swerevdriver as inspiration. They rule! I would be interested to know what other Swervedriver fans are into. I recommend Honeyrods, Gandharvas, Janes Addiction, Soul Coughing, Hum, Our Lady Peace, and Self. 99th Dream is my least favorite Swervedriver CD. I only hope there recent record label does not suck the life out of there hard driving blend of distortion rock."
