Album Review

The first of two completed albums liberated from the clutches of Capitol in the wake of a recording deal gone bad, Will You Find Me projects all the confidence of the major label debut it was intended to be — Ida's most cohesive and haunting album to date, it's also their most direct, articulating the messy entanglements of desire and heartbreak with startling clarity. Although at least five of the album's 14 songs previously appeared on scattered singles and EPs, these new re-recordings benefit enormously from their improved production, uncluttered yet inventive arrangements, and the luminous vocal interplay of Elizabeth Mitchell, Daniel Littleton, and Karla Schickele; similarly, where in the past the group's lyrics sometimes strained too far for poetic resonance, the songs on Will You Find Me reveal a new honesty and simplicity — the rising and falling harmonies that conclude "Maybelle," arguably Ida's most singularly beautiful moment on record, communicate emotional depths that transcend language altogether.

Customer Reviews

One of my all-time favorite bands!

Ida is one of the most timeless bands... If you like amazing harmonies and edgy folk-rock well then this is the band for you. Influential and powerful! I have evey album and listen to them all regular...I'm kind of a fanatic! But you will be too.

Amazing still...

This is one of the most beautiful albums ever. I still find myself going back to it over and over after 7 years of owning it. "Maybelle" is one of my favorite songs of all time.

A Revelation

Of the many bands I've been introduced to by KUSF in San Francisco, Ida has to be the one I've revisited most often. Repeated listenings always seem to reveal a new detail, and they always center around "Turn Me On." This gorgeous tune is, in my opinion, the album's strongest and most representative track, particularly for its long, spooky, drum/base/keyboard-paced intro, the seductive lyrics, seemless harmonies, and multiple, powerful crescendos. Like the album itself, the track's energetic peaks are balanced by moments that are sweet-sounding, low-key, and hauntingly poetic. This is a great and unique effort.
