Album Review

The Essex Green's debut album captures the sound and spirit of the psychedelic era with an uncanny accuracy which makes the rest of the Elephant 6 collective seem positively postmodern by comparison. It's hardly paint-by-numbers, however — for all of its colorful guitar effects, orchestral spangles, and studio trickery, what's impressive about Everything Is Green is the subtle mastery with which the band deploys these cues, soaring so far beyond their music's superficial similarities to psychedelia that the album seems less like a latter-day homage to the late '60s than an actual artifact of the times; songs like "Primrose" and the majestic "Mrs. Bean" are both wonderfully unique and instantly familiar, evoking not merely the sonic grandeur of pop's past but its limitless possibilities as well.

Customer Reviews

Fresh

This group is amazing...the music is fresh, lively, and a sweet blend of folk and rock. If you want something happy, something sad, something flowering with confidence, and something bubbling with stupendous sound, then the Essex Green is evidently for you.

Amazingly Awesome Album

Wierdos delight!! This album combines smooth, melodic tones with mellow vocals to create musical bliss. If you like elephant 6 type wierdo pop, it is essential that you at least take a look at this awesome band.

iTunes review is pretty spot on

I got into this band, like many people, by exploring the deeper bands of the Elephant 6 collective. After starting with the more known bands, such as Neutral Milk Hotel and of Montreal, then moving into bands like the Olivia Tremor Control, this is like the next 'level' of Elephant 6 bands. By deeper, I don't mean worse or harder to get into, however. It's a very psychdelic and fun album. Reminds me of Strawberry Alarm Clock or other 60's bands like that I guess, but with a twist. It's hard to explain, but for sure you should download this album (and the other Essex Green albums) and give them a listen. you won't be disappointed!

I just wish more people could have heard of this album, it's truly deserving of respect!

4.5 -5 stars.
