Burst and Bloom is a five-song EP of patented Cursive indie rock, but with a new feature. They now have a cellist. Much of the cello playing isn't integral to the structure of the tunes, yet when it is audible, it seems to go along with the music very well. Another point of note is that this release doesn't seem to have quite the heaviness that Domestica had, nor does it have the dynamics that Storms of Early Summer or their split with Silver Scooter showcased. So, what is Burst and Bloom like exactly? Well, it seems to be a little more technical — more intricate guitar work, layered nicely with the cello in some cases. A little speedier with the tempo and much steadier in their delivery. None of this is to say that Cursive wasn't those things in previous efforts, it's just that's what sticks out the most. Burst and Bloom is another lyrical catharsis for Tim Kasher, a delivery of his melancholy, yet not in such a pungent manner. The emotional dishevelment is more subtler and perhaps only longtime fans will grasp the difference. New fans will appreciate a concise yet wonderful introduction to this Omaha, NE, five-piece.
Took a few listens to digest.....
But now this might be my favorite cursive album ever. Cant put a finger on what it is about it, its just a great listen. and interactive, the lyrics make you want to belt them out over the steering wheel, or whatever happens to be in front of you at the time.
I've only listened to a few of their songs....
But from what I've heard, I love it :) Cursive is really talented. Buy the song Sink to the Beat!
Grow to like it
This was one of the first albums I ever heard from Cursive. I didn't like it at all the first few times I listened to it. After awhile, though, it grew on me. Now I think this is one of their best albums. The songs "The Great Decay" and "Fairytales Tell Tales" are the standouts.
Formed: 1995 in Omaha, NE
