Album Review

Looping drums, electronic swells, and modernistic vocals are the mainstay on The Echoing Green's second disc, titled Supernova. The title track opens the release with Green founder Joey Belville laying out swirling synths. Co-vocalist Chrissy Franklin enters the song midstream, amidst a sea of eloctronica. Her effect-laden vocals work well with the tunes upbeat delivery. "She's Gone Tragic" is a vibe reminiscent of Modern English. The cut builds from slow to fast, with Belville's vocals cutting the swath through British pop territory. Perhaps the disc's most radio-friendly offering is a tune called "Waterfall." The cut is a cross between Mr. Mister and the throaty delivery of George Michael. Musically, the tune offers an impressive synthesizer and piano melody, while Belville excels vocally. Cuts like "Defender" make for relevant dancefloor fodder, with the band harkening back to the straightforward electronic stylings of their first release. Chrissy Franklin aids nicely on "Thief" and "Nightfall and Splendor," helping to make her efforts more striking then just an afterthought. The Echoing Green has found an agreeable niche with their progressive pop. Along with excellent production and clear-cut lyrics, they may have ignited a supernova here!

Customer Reviews

So many good songs, so little time.

There's too man good songs on here to count. If you can find it, the video for "yesterday's taking over" is super fun. 'Supernova' is one of those songs that you can take out in a convertible on a warm summer's day. 'Nightfall and splendor' is a beautiful closer as most of the in between songs are really great. The only weird song for me is 'Liberation' that wants to be an Industrial track, but doesn't quite make it because the overall music is just too positive. You would do well to grab this if you don't already have it.
