iTunes Editors' Notes

Jeremy Enigk’s first solo album, 1996’s Return of the Frog Queen, was a delightfully weird chamber-folk album that suggested the leader of emo-core titans Sunny Day Real Estate was ready to move on alone and establish himself as a left-of-center, modern day Syd Barrett.  Well, he reformed SDRE, started up the Fire Theft and (finally!) ten years later returns with his solo follow-up, World Waits, that’s nothing like what his first solo album suggested. Just as the world has changed in those ten years, so has Enigk’s approach. World Waits is much grander in scope -- anthemic and atmospheric where Frog Queen was quick and humble.

A grandiose tune such as “Cannons” is not unlike the secular U2 or Snow Patrol or Keane in the music’s quest for grand transcendence.
