CD REVIEW: The Music
The Music is back

The Music
S/T
Hut Recordings



RUNDOWN: A group of four young British students started a band because they were bored of school. Their first album was a four-song EP released in 2001. Now that their sound has matured, The Music is making inroads into North America through tireless touring, with popular names such as The Vines and The Charlatans.

KEY TRACKS: Their first single, "Take the Long Road and Walk it," is catchy and innovative. The wailing of lead singer Robert Harvey is reminiscent of Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin. "The Truth is no Words" and "Getaway" are rock classics waiting to happen.

SOUNDS LIKE: The Music's first full-length provides its share of raw, rockin' riffs with a hearty side of psychedelia. The songs are thick with bass and reverberating guitar harmonies, and display an exceptional blend of mellow verses and intense choruses. Having recently earned the renowned British Mercury prize from the music industry for their original, fresh and creative sound, The Music are definitely set to make their mark on the international music scene.
