Crítica do 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 was clever, unique, and 31 flavors of awesome.

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.
