CD Reviews

One of my faves
Benjamin P Foster | Olympia, WA United States | 04/19/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Zumpano are a band that never really got the attention they deserved.I remember seeing them live with only 5 or 6 others in attendance.At least Carl's got the New Pornographer's thing going now. This is a catchy album from start to finish, but I have to point out that "Momentum" is one of the greatest pop songs ever written.I used to decribe these guys as "lounge-pop",I don't know how accurate that is,but give them a listen and see for yourself."
Great pop

"If you enjoy pop enough to know about Zumpano, then you should definitely have this album. My roomate and I also listened to this 900 times in a row. It is one of my favorites. If you like Zumpano you will like ADEN, Tulleycraft, Belle and Sebastian (esp. If You're feeling sinister)."

"Those among us who get that narcissistic thrill when finding relatively obscure works from indisputably talented artists often feel little pangs of guilt when we're upset over the popularity of our once cherished and maternaly cradled icons.
But, it's time when we must accept that intelligent pop is accessible to the mainstream, and that they can truly think for themselves.
On this album I hear some of the most well-constructed, well-rounded pop I've ever heard in the last 10 years. The melodies are rich and the hooks are suprising (like they should be, instead of being merely granted). My impression is that Carl Newman is the brains behind this outfit, judging on his work not just with the "New Pornographers" but with his own album; the much
deservedly appreciated "The Slow Wonder".
Plus, the lyrics are quite well-written, if not a little obstuse at times; but that all makes for more repeat listens, which is something this album demands."
