Reseña de álbum

Coming nearly three years after the exceptional EP Hopelessly Incapable of Standing in the Way, Houston's Spain Colored Orange have finally released their debut full-length. The EP was a bit of a tease, its seven varied keyboard and trumpet-driven songs sounding like an inexplicable but utterly delightful melding of 10cc's quirky art-pop songcraft and unapologetic '70s gloss with the meandering song structures and ramshackle arrangements of Neutral Milk Hotel or the Olivia Tremor Control.

It's just disappointing to hear a band whose early work was so vibrantly different than everything else that was going on at the time turn into just another set of Mercury Rev/Grandaddy clones.

The group began in 2000 as the solo acoustic project of singer, songwriter, guitarist, and keyboardist Gilbert Alfaro.
