Beautiful, pure emotion
Sara G. | Mamou, LA USA | 07/06/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"At first I didn't like this Raincoats album as much as their first one. The songs were so ethereal, insubstantial. Later I came to love it for just those same reasons. The music wraps around you, beautiful and airy, and pulls you along with it. You'll find yourself crying and rejoicing with these songs, and not because of the profound lyrics. The music itself seems like pure emotion- for instance, "Baby" is a tale of longing, but you don't have to listen to the lyrics to find out. It pulls you, the intensity of the longing. Listening to this album is a spiritual experience."
True music!

"for some strange reason this album is considered not as good as their other two studio albums, the first s/t is closer to punk and the third (moving)is closer to reggay, which leaves odyshape somewhere in the middle, but that is what gives odyshape it's strange undescribable feeling, all through hearing this album you get a strong feeling that you have never heard anything like it and you never will. true this album is difficult and takes a number of listenings to know and understand and then some to love, but any true music lover that will take the time to know this album will not regret, this album is a pure mix of sounds and emotions, which makes it true music!"

"the best record you probably don't have. these records are out of print as far as i know, so buy what you can now, because this may be your only chance. the raincoats also have a live album called "the kitchen tapes" and are probably one of the most influential bands ever. "odyshape" is beautiful and spectacular and echoes sentiments so beautiful that you can only listen to it over and over again to understand the full effect and impact of their music."
