Mercury Rev - Light In You (CD)

- R 42
Mercury Rev's ninth studio effort, The Light In You is filled with wondrous and voluminous kaleidoscopic detail, but also intimate moments of calm, and altogether stands up to the very best that this notable band of maverick explorers has ever created. It's ecstatic highs and shivery comedowns also reflect a particularly turbulent era in the lives of Grasshopper and fellow co-founder Jonathan Donahue, of calamities both personal and physical, but also rebirths and real births. The light is reflected both by the album's brilliantine colors and imagery drawn largely from the elements and the seasons, creating a world as only Mercury Rev know how from the opening slow-build cascade of "The Queen Of Swans," through the epic lonely beauty of "Central Park East" and the album's half-way peak between "Emotional Freefall" and "Are You Ready" before the closing sequence, with the exhilarating pop beacons of "Sunflower" and "Rainy Day Record" sandwiching the more tranquil "Moth Light."

- Alternative rock band from Buffalo, New York, formed in 1989.
Started as a collective to provide soundtracks for student films the band debuted in the UK as exponents of a psychedelic and experimental breed of indie rock, gradually revealing a more melodic, bittersweet sound. Frontman David Baker left after the second record, Boces and later recorded an album as Shady.
It wasn't until 1998 that the band came to mainstream media attention, after furter UK touring with their album Deserter's Songs which was given "Best Album Of The Year" award by NME.
