^OK, let's see...This is the first time I've listened to Menomena. I didn't really know anything about this band that is apparently very promising, or so they say. What I'm about to say is based on two listens and while my opinion might change, at the same time this album doesn't give me much motivation to listen to it more. Overall it's a solid indie pop album with some interesting electronic arrangements and occasionally off-beat rhythm section. The first two tracks 'Muscle 'N Flow' and 'The Pelican' are my favorites, especially the latter, incidentally or not, the 'rockiest' song on the album. I leave the possibility that Friend and Foe may be a slow burner and it has some interesting songs that I might enjoy more outside the album actually. As a whole it didn't grab me and I struggled to reach the end.

Next:


The Modern Lovers - The Modern Lovers (1976)

Such a raw fun rock & roll record, really great to listen to with a really great production.
Their debut album is definitely their defining work and one of the finest Proto-Punk albums you'll listen to. 4.5/5

^Oh man this album blew me away the first time i listened to it. I love the emotion felt in every song. After this Album I don't enjoy them as much sadly. Truly a masterpiece in my mind.

I was searching the threads for this album (Discovery)... so I'm glad to have found it. I love it. I'm suprised there isn't more out there about it...

Sorry to put it bluntly like this, but that just sounded awful. The vocals grated like nails on a chalkboard, all that synth-heavy backdrop was just so gimmicky and...yeuch.

Then again, I'm not a fan of any of the connected artists, so go figure.

Here, someone listen to this;

Rain Tree Crow - Rain Tree Crow


Listen to some snippets of it here, and check out one of my favourite songs from it here.
