I remembered reading a fairly good review of this one somewhere.
The Verdict: I only played the first two tracks and was undecided about it. The musicianship is good, just didn't particularly make me want to listen to more. Unfair, perhaps.
Boondogs - Fever Dreams (2005)
I liked the cover. Plus, it's a digipak. Yay!
The Verdict: Very promising. I liked the first three tracks right away. They alternate between male and female vocals. I liked the guy better at first, but also the songwriting seemed interesting. I'm looking forward to hearing more of this.
The Red Thread - Ship in the Attic, Birds in the Subway (2005)
I won this one for a cent on eBay. The artwork is nothing special.
The Verdict: Really good. Very nice dynamics, two strong opening tracks and then a cool acoustic number for the third. I played the last track and it was another pretty acoustic instrumental. Sounds great, quite focused. Best of the day which I didn't anticipate at all.
