Customer Reviews


I was able to grab one of the 500 limited edition, hand numbered copies of this EP and was suprised to see here on iTunes. It's defintely a great collection of songs if you are already a fan of the group. "Love" and "Beach Front Property" are probably the strongest songs with the chorus for "Love" being one of the catchiest things the band has done. "Walking On Water" is maybe the most interesting Umbrellas song I've heard. It always leads me to think of some type of crazy carnival or something. But my personal favorite track is the closer "Picture of Departure", a song that features just Scott and a piano. Great ending to a great EP.

So many constants...

I was also able to get my hands on one of the 500 hard copies, so needless to say I was very excited. With that aside, I don't think this EP is a good presentation of what Umbrellas can really do, and hopefully not a foreshadowing of where they are moving next. Following the massiveness of "Illuminare," "Beach Front Property" is almost entirely eclipsed. The brevity of the individuals songs is a bit disconcerting and leaves a lot to be desired. "Walking on Water" is short, but not sweet, and isn't much to think twice about. "Help" is alright as well, but a little droning. "Love" and "Beach Front Property" are a bit better, but not by much- they feel a little bit rushed and "Love" is a little too pretentious for me. "Constants" and "Picture of Departure" are the only two songs on this EP that are worth worrying about. They are prime examples of the beauty that Umbrellas can evoke with their music and I would recommend them to new and old fans alike. Overall, not a great new installment, but for "Constants" and "Picture of Departure" it is definitely not forgettable.

Excellent Album

This album is very, very good. I would say "great", but it's not as good as their self-titled. That being said, "Help" is quite possibly the best song I've ever heard from Umbrellas. "Walking on Water" is also way up there. The other tracks are all solid, and better than most music on the market today. Pick it up, it's cheap, and you won't be disappointed.


Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

After issuing two albums and an EP of largely acoustic work under the moniker the Lyndsay Diaries, Scott Windsor further embraced his indie pop side with a new project, Umbrellas. Collaborating with various studio musicians -- including Chad Copelin, Nathan Price, and Eric Arndt -- Umbrellas debuted in spring 2005 with a self-titled collection of refreshing and dynamic pop music. Produced by Ed Rose, the album was issued through The Militia Group, the same label Windsor worked with for the Lyndsay...
