Reseña de álbum

Catherine Wheel first bowed onto the U.K. music scene in 1992 with "Black Metallic," a haunting single from their debut, Ferment. These shoegazers introduced a raucous sound so real that their maddening lyrics and lustful connotations were dramatic, in the sense that they were searching for spiritual place.

Catherine Wheel did find a spiritual place of sorts in their new label, Columbia since being dropped from the now defunct Mercury Records in 1997. Wishville marks the band's fifth release of original material since 1997's Adam and Eve and their juggernaut passion is right-on this time around. Produced by longtime advocate-producer Tim Friese-Greene (Talk Talk), Wishville is typically embryonic like 1993's Chrome, and the majesty of rock & roll seems steady. The opening "Sparks Are Gonna Fly" pounces with wah-wah guitar riffs and throbbing percussion over frontman Rob Dickinson's deep scratchy, airless vocals. Dickinson is irresistibly cunning, and the fiery soul on tracks such as "Ballad of Running Man" and "What We Want to Believe" is stripped into lush sonicscapes of riveting guitar riffs and whining harmonic cries. Internal emotional tension swivels inside Dickinson's poetic mind, but that intensity quickly dwindles.

Catherine Wheel's signature ballads are moody and deeply dramatic. Wishville, however, reaches for the same tenderness, but to no avail. "All of That" is a personal trip to an outside world, but it is not relatively believable; "Creme Caramel" frolics with sensual illusions to wedding-night thighs and river-blue eyes, but the '60s synth strings are draining. Catherine Wheel is sweetly smooth, but a touch distant when they wish upon a star.

What's all the fuss?

I've read alot of comments from Catherine Wheel fans about how horrible this record is, and I just don't get it. Its by far not their best, but certainly is not as bad as people would like you to think. Sparks, Lifeline, and Mad Dog are some of the best songs they've ever done. There's a couple of clunkers (What We Want to Believe In) but I think its not a bad record.

Great record

This is a fine peice of work. It manages to be very guitar heavy yet feel emotional and introspective. Every song on this record is good.

Cant believe folks hated this...

This album presented to the world some of the most beautiful music these guys ever put out. I've loved them forever (and RIDE). Try the subtle burn of "Idle Life" or the spiraling beauty of "Mad Dog" . Maybe it was the time in my life that made these songs so important....or maybe they are two of the best songs Rob and crew ever created. Either way, if not the album, give these two songs a listen. You'll be happy you did.

Biografía

Fecha de formación: Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England, abril de 1990

Género: Rock

Años de actividad: '90s, '00s

By using their influences as a mere launching pad and consistently developing their many strengths, Catherine Wheel was able to outlast all of their early peers. With their initial singles and first album, the band from East Anglia fit snugly with the remainder of bands that the British press eventually labeled as shoegazers, a short-lived sub-scene of bands that were characterized by an inactive stage presence, loads of effects pedals, and buried vocals. However, the always tuneful Catherine Wheel...
