Reseña de álbum

After recording the material that would later comprise the bulk of Invisible Hits, the Soft Boys recorded their masterpiece, the shimmering neo-psychedelic Underwater Moonlight. Essentially, the band didn't change their style for the record — they merely perfected it. The Soft Boys don't hide their influences — whether its the ringing guitars of the Beatles and Byrds or the surreal humor of John Lennon and Syd Barrett — but they assimilate them, resulting in a fresh, edgy take on '60s guitar pop. Robyn Hitchcock's subject matter tends to be more explicitly weird and absurdist than his influences, as titles like "I Wanna Destroy You," "Old Pervert," and "Queen of Eyes" indicate — even "Kingdom of Love" equates romance to bugs crawling under your skin. But the lyrics aren't the only thing that are edgy — the music is too. The Soft Boys play pop hooks as if they were punk rock. "I Wanna Destroy You" isn't overtly threatening like their post-punk contemporaries, but with its layered guitar hooks and dissonant harmonies, it is equally menacing. Furthermore, the group can twist its songs inside out and then revert them to their original form, as evidenced by "Insanely Jealous." Although the neo-psychedelic flourishes are fascinating, the key to record's success is how each song is constructed around rock-solid hooks and melodies that instantly work their way into the subconscious. In fact, that's the most notable thing about Underwater Moonlight — it updates jangling, melodic guitar pop for the post-punk world, which made it a touchstone for much of the underground pop of the mid-'80s, particularly R.E.M.

"...And you won't have a single atom to call your own."

Finally! Re-issued in all it's glory. It's an absolute no-brainer of a purchase. Go ahead and buy it from your local record store if you can. Or, if they've closed it down or you happen to be stranded in the middle of nowhere, I suppose you could get it here. Can of Bees is also excellent. (Perhaps even better?) Robyn Hitchcock is criminally underrated here in the States. Solo work is great. But early Soft Boys LPs are what mainly impacted a lot of great bands. (REM, Flaming Lips, Camper Van Beethoven, Yo La Tengo, to name just a few.) Funny, energetic, surreal, psychedelic... AWESOME.

What a bargin!

"Underwater Moonlight" is by far my favorite Soft Boys record. And with 30 extra/bonus tracks for only $9.99 this may be the best deal in the iTunes Store!! Get it NOW. I've got the original LP and CD releases, but I'm picking this up too.

Total bargain, amazing. Classic album, and with the equivalent of 2 extra albums of bonus cuts.

The Soft Boys have turned out to be one of the most influential bands in shaping contemporary alternative music, though few are completely familiar with the quirky band's legacy. Formed in Cambridge, England in 1976 on the heels of the punk revolution, the Soft Boys eschewed the three-chord nihilism of punk and opted for a crude version of psychedelic/folk-rock that was well on its way out of fashion, but oddly, just on the cusp of a resurgence. Robyn Hitchcock recruited Cambridge musicians Morris...
