This album is FANTASTIC! Guster is FANTASTIC!
Song by song:
1. Diane - 5/5 My favourite bit is in the beginning, where it says 'I watched you board a train, in the London rain'
2. Careful - 5/5 This song is absolutely brilliant. The first verse especially.
3. Amsterdam - 4/5 I didn't like it as much as the others, but still fun to sing to.
4. Backyard - 5/5 Lovely. Quieter than Amsterdam. Just not long enough!
5. Homecoming King - 4/5 I love the verses. I didn't like the chorus as much, but still great. Simialr feel to Amsterdam.
6. RAMONA - 5/5 SECOND BEST SONG ON THE ALBUM. I thought the lyrics were kind of stupid when I first heard it, but the chorus is just WOW!
7. Jesus on the Radio - 3/5 Probably my least favourite on the album. It kind of annoyed me a bit. It's not a bad song, though. I just didn't like it much.
8. KEEP IT TOGETHER - 5/5 ABSOLUTELY THE BEST TRACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Brilliant. There's a banjo being played in there somewhere. I LOVE IT. It was in an episode of The O.C. once, too.
9. Come Downstairs and Say Hello - 4/5 slower and softer than the previous tracks.
10. RED OYSTER CULT - 5/5 Third best song on the album. Maybe the loudest. Great fun to listen to.
11. Long Way Down - 4/5 Beautiful. I love the melodies in this.
12. I Hope Tomorrow Is Like Today - 5/5 co written with Ben Kweller. Awesome track. Best bit is the 'na na na na's' towards the end.
13. Untitled Hidden Track - 0/5 What is this doing here????? It's 30 seconds of complete silence. 30 SECONDS GUSTER COULD HAVE USED TO SING! Waste.
14. Two at a Time - 5/5 LOVE IT! Maybe fourth best track. Lyrics are very Noah's ark. Hence 'Two at a Time'. There's a kid's choir or something singing with them towards the end. The effect is great.
5 STARS FOR A REASON!
I love Guster. Their albums should be available here. It really is tragic. SOMEBODY OUT THERE BRING THEM TO OZ!!!!!!!!!!!
