impressive

wow, i don't think these guys could have made a stronger opening statement. this is one of the most well crafted australian debuts in a long time. love it.

Last Dinosaurs - In A Million Years

Catchy indie rock is probably the best way of describing the debut album by Last Dinosaurs. And yes, indie can be catchy to those who think that to be indie is to be purposely cluttered and obscure.

Having heard Zoom, Time And Place and Honolulu previously, I was quite impressed by their sound. and the rest of the album is no different.
The similar sound thoughout the album doesn't take anything away from it's quality as will be explained in the song by song review.

Zoom: Well most people will recognise them for this song. Synthy sounding and instantly recognisible rift. Catchy chorus. Maybe goes 30 seconds too long though. 8.5/10

I Can't Help You: Rifts again stand out as being infectious and the vocals are particularly good too. Could be a single. 9/10

Sunday Night: And another really catchy and kind of summer-sounding rift. In fact everything about this song is catchy/summery. 9.5/10

Time And Place: People will recognise this song immediately as well. A single and as most singles are, it's catchy especially in the vocal department. Summer sounding rifts and breaks. 9/10

Andy: You guessed it; more colourful rifts to be found. Not particularly catchy chorus/vocally but still you can sing along pretty easily. Really like towards the end of the song. 9/10

Satellites: An interlude. Dreamy synths make up the song. A pleasant change of pace from all the rifting.

Weekend: Very laid back start with a dreamy synth with a simple structured rift. The simplicity of this song is why I like it so much as well as the end half being pretty wonderful. Probably my favourite at this stage. 10/10

I Can't Decide: Pretty heavy for Last Dinosaur standards. Although it breaks into familarity soon after the start, it heads straights back in heavy stomping and interchanges between sections throughout. I only feel the heavy sections are slightly too cluttered with sound. 8.5/10

Used To Be Mine: Hang on, slow sounding start and little guitar. Is this the actually the same band? After every song being all about colourful guitar playing, they change up the pace with a slow, dark number. It's pretty effective too. 9/10

Honolulu: Last of the three singles. Sounds like Time and Place slowed down in sections. Quite the summery feel to it as well. 9/10

Repair: Really cool sounding guitar. Great vocals on this one too. A pretty suitable ending for album (not counting the bonus track which is fantastic as well). 9.5/10

Beaux-Mont: Vocals are the highlight which is unusual considering the quality of the rifting in all their songs. The instrumental is cool too. This could well have concluded the album as well. 9.5/10

So as you can read, I really enjoyed this album. If you are a fan of indie rock then you'll probably enjoy it. If you don't like the same song played over and over, still give it a try, because each song is different enough to keep you more than interested.

It's almost like they covered their instruments in colourful candy glaze, thought up as many different combinations of rifts, drumming and synthesising as possible and chose out 12 to put onto the album. The concept is time, even the title.

One of the best albums of 2012 already

It's been years waiting for these guys to come up with their album. Their EP "Back From The Dead" left us craving for more. Now the time has finally arrived. This album is absolutely amazing. Just like what I expected from these guys. Look out. This will be one of the top albums of 2012.
