Album Review

My Heart Has a Wish That You Would Not Go doesn't quite abandon the directions taken on 2004's Seclusion EP or the previous year's full-length, psych-metallic Sleep and Release — the overall extravagance remains, and Aereogramme still reaches for the sky — but it does signal a turn toward a more thoughtful, artistically ambitious sound than before, not just maintaining the Scottish neo-prog quartet's penchant for forward movement but catapulting them out of minor-league status. Only half-a-dozen years earlier, on their 2001 debut A Story in White, Aereogramme was weighted down with elephantine guitars, bloated, plodding rhythms and an overcrowded production. Since then they've progressively relaxed a bit more each time out, thinking on a grander scale texturally but reserving their desire for grandiosity in favor of increasingly complex song structures, more expansive instrumentation and judicious use of the space and time at their disposal. My Heart Has a Wish is awash in opulent strings, dramatic keyboards and multi-layered vocals, at times so thick as to tread on symphonic Moody Blues/Pink Floyd territory and at others airy and earnestly ambling in a Coldplay/Radiohead sort of way. Vocalist Craig B. is less self-conscious than on past efforts, transformed into a truly engaging frontman in total command on showpiece tracks such as "Nightmares" and "Barriers," and dynamic and radiant on the more delicately constructed "Exits" and "Finding a Light."

What Now?

Where have these guys been all my life? This album has moved me so much more than anything else I've heard for years! Every track is brilliant musically and lyrically. What a revelation it has been finding this group. As a simple guide they could be labelled as new prog rock but their sound is much more symphonic and melodic than most bands in this category. Think of Porcupine Tree mixed with the emotion of Bright Eyes or Sufjan Stevens. No - don't think of anything just listen with your heart and if you don't cry when you hear 'You're Always Welcome' then you haven't got one. For the first time ever a 6 star album. What do I listen to now??

Fantastic - really good album, i love it

My Heart has a wish they had not split

This album was my first experience of the gramme & almost moved me to tears with its intricate soaring melodies & equally soaring lyrics . If you like such as Placebo & Gazpacho then you will like this. They are still different though, more layers. There are no weak tracks but for me it climbs to incredible heights on the last three tracks. Nightmares is my favorite. Unbelievably moving. If music is as important to you as living & breathing then you must buy. The sadness is they are not together producing more of this.
