Great Follow Up


Even though his first was more groundbreaking (by default), I feel this expands upon his sound enough to make it a really solid album. Still stands on its own amongst so much of the same production in electronic music today.

five stars?

felix da kkkkkat,

This is album is better than you think. Just listen to it! I don't know why so many people are complaining that the previous album is better, that is irrevelant. This is a good standalone album.

About Kelley Polar

Initially known for providing the strings on tracks by Metro Area ("The Art of Hot," "Caught Up," "Miura") and Metro Area's Morgan Geist ("24K"), Kelley Polar (last name first, adjective last; real name: Mike Kelley, the brother of Blevin Blectum) began releasing a series of 12" singles in 2002. Released on Environ and featuring assistance from label head Geist, 2002's Audition, 2003's Recital, and 2004's Rococo were somewhat similar to Metro Area's singles -- in detail, inspiration, and basic construction -- but different enough to avoid redundancy. In 2005, Kelley took an abrupt turn and came up with Love Songs of the Hanging Gardens, a ten-song, 40-minute album rooted in pop, featuring his vocals throughout. He followed it with 2008's I Need You to Hold on While the Sky Is Falling, which was even more ambitious and idiosyncratic. Geist's Double Night Time and Junior Boys' Begone Dull Care both featured his input. ~ Andy Kellman
