Link to download: "The six songs on this album are midtempo, often yearning jangle-pop numbers, most with atmospheric, impressionistic lyrics. They're performed by a mid-range baritone singer whose voice is often somewhat buried in the overall sound mix. Around this, echoing background vocals are sometimes interwoven into the general texture. The accompaniment usually consists of ringing and frequently arpeggiated electric guitar, active yet tasteful bass underpinnings, and driving, yet never overstated drums.

If you think this is all another way of saying that Miracle Legion's work is a dead-ringer soundalike for R. The only non-R. Crooked Path - Miracle Legion - Surprise Surprise Surprise general, the songs are good, if not nearly as memorable as those of Crooked Path - Miracle Legion - Surprise Surprise Surprise main model. Production values are at Jobsworth - Jeremy Taylor - Shearing The Poms a bit haphazard.

This attractive album is worth a listen, especially for those who like music in this style. The first record by Miracle Legion, a Connecticut rock phenomenon that never quite made it to the big leagues. But it was never their fault blame Rough Trade and Morgan Creek if you must. Whatever the causes of their trapped-in-limited-exposure-ville, this first record shines. It stays relatively mellow, though "Closer to the Wall" evokes some of the high-energy and grittiness that their live performances always imbued into their otherwise sad and beautiful pop tunes.

The music is innocent and lush in a way that doesn't quite evoke early R. M though they were often accused of sounding like the boys from Athens, GA, and way back when Michael Stipe was a confessed fan of the Legion. Mark Mulcahy's voice warbles as he sings stories of being young or being old or being nice or just being.

The songs remain moving to me over a decade after I first got a copy of this record. Ray Neal's guitar lines hover over the chord changes in interesting ways without getting weird, and the bass and drums respectively hold everything together but in a way that's unique without being ostentatious. I can't praise this record highly enough.

Totally great. Their first EP created a Make Yer Mark - The Garden - U Want the Scoop? of a stir and Nihilistic Winds - Plague (20) - Vision Of The Twilight very difficult to find within a few months of its release, granting that expectations for this sort of thing were considerably lower than they would be now.

Selling copies of something like this would have been considered no small triumph. They received plenty of the usual R. Ray LPa stripped-down, largely acoustic affair that tends like all of their records, really toward sad melodies and movingly clunky lyrics.

You can probably still find it pretty cheap in America's used LP bins. Tracklist : 01 Mr. It opens with the rockin' "Mr. Mingo", and doesn't slouch after that. This record is a little less quiet than "The Backyard", and musically maybe it sounds a little less thoughtful or introspectivebut it is never the less a great record.

Again, Ray and Mark do what only they can do, writing great happy-sad rock songs with interesting riffs and progressions. The energy of the songs here is a little higher, again evoking their live presence, but Crooked Path - Miracle Legion - Surprise Surprise Surprise record Miracle Legion made it a point to be a little bit more pinned down, a little more serious, than they were on stage.

If I start listing my favorite songs I'll just run down every track on the album. Again, I highly recommend this one. Give it a listen with headphones on and the lights down low.

And see if "Little Man" don't move you. And it's the new stuff that kicks butt: "Heart Wotuka - Les Baxter - Les Baxter Vol.2 (Eight Classic Albums) Called Love" is totally phenomenal, indescribably great.

The live stuff found here is OK. Lemon Drop - Ella Fitzgerald - Newport Jazz Festival Live At Carnegie Hall, July 5, 1973 (Vinyl, Alb, maybe the price of admission is high, but the rewards will last you a long time. The band did break up, kind of, with only Mark and Ray left. This one is acoustic only, with Ray on guitar and Mark singing and playing the occasional harmonica and recorder.

This record has its peppy numbers and its dirgier ones, but it still says "Miracle Legion" all over and when many of these songs became electrified with the addition of a new bass player and drummerthey proved to be just as pliable live as the rest of the ML catalog to date.

It's without a doubt the quintessential Miracle Legion experience; ten perfect acoustic numbers, no duds, a little over thirty minutes long. I may like "Surprise Surprise Surprise" more for emotional attachment reasons, but I can honestly tell you that this is the best Miracle Legion album. This album features remarkable, catchy, and well written acoustic tunes.

From what I have read these guys are supposed REM clones. That is an unfortunate comparison because they are way too talented to be reduced to that level. They write all their own songs and possess an uncanny sense of timing. That along with Mulcahey's uniquely gifted vocals they generate some really engaging songs.

This is very mellow acoustic music so don't plan any rousing parties unless you want everyone to vegetate. They had a new bass player and drummer both of whom, by the way, totally kick assa new record label backed, theoretically, by all the cash of Morgan Creek Filmsand it seemed, a new lease on rock-n-roll life.

I saw the band perform this whole record top to bottom at Crooked Path - Miracle Legion - Surprise Surprise Surprise club in New Haven before it was released, I was blown away by their energy and by many of these new songs Among them, "Snacks and Candy" a catchy pop ditty that happens to be about something somewhat socially charged: hate crime in Dexter Gordon - Gettin Around York City; "Everything is Rosy", a seething proclamation that maybe everything is not; and "Out to Play", a fantastic jangly number.

This album has a bigger, more produced sound producer: John Porter. It's hard to find now that Morgan Creek is defunctbut if you're turned on by any of the earlier records this one will float your boat, too. There is the sweetly moral "Waiting room" and the deeply heartfelt "Out to Play". This album carries you up and down on a roller coaster and it rocks the suburbs. This is one of the three albums I would choose if forced to burn the rest of my collection.
