Album Review

The Trash Can Sinatras have settled into the "album every five years" plan and judging by both 2004’s Weightlifting and 2009’s In the Music, it’s a plan that works for them. It may even be the secret to keeping their sound fresh. In the Music features songs good enough to have been on any of their early albums and arrangements that are as smooth and lush as ever, and best of all perhaps, singer Frank Reader's voice hasn’t lost any of its warmth. He sails through the midtempo tracks that make up most of the album with a nimble grace that seems almost miraculous for a guy who’s been doing it for so long. His is the kind of voice that sounds like an old friend who holds all the secrets to life and if you ask real nice, he’ll share them with you over a late-night pint or two. The rest of the band is in tune with this feeling as well, and their playing on the album is smoothly sympathetic with not a single duff moment or false note. Though the Trash Can Sinatras sound their best when they stay in the sophisticated midtempo pop pocket, they can also convincingly settle into a soulful groove (the title track), jangle like the Byrds ("Prisons"), or get late-night quiet ("Oranges and Apples"). It’s a masterfully played record, sung with passion and full of easy hooks; in other words, a Trash Can Sinatras record. Just like they’ve been making for two decades.

Customer Reviews

Good return to form

I feel like this is one of the bands that I am always hoping for a new release -- the songs sound true to form, with classic lyrical swirls. Although 12-18 are old "hits", these toned down, acoustic versions are worth it, if for nothing other than a review to some masterful song-craft. Highly recommended.

Delicious for the soul

TCS's music makes you want to find a hillside somewhere, take your shoes off, lay back and soak in the goodness. They are confident enough not to have to reinvent themselves every album, and I'm glad. Eighteen tracks, even with the acoustic oldies, are well worth it. I only wish they were touring nearer to me this summer. I guess I'll stick to the hillside.

A perfect introduction to an amazing band

If you already know Trashcan Sinatras, you probably bought the album as an import like I did. That version featured only tracks 1-10. Then I saw them in concert in Seattle and bought Wild Mountainside - a lilting, gorgeous lullabye of a song. This version has the original tracks, Wild Mountainside, and excellent acoustic versions of some of their most gorgeous songs. WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR? Buy it; You will not regret it.
