What an appropriate album title to discuss while I’m working the phone & emails for job interviews. The ‘career’ part; not the ‘maudlin’ part. Granted, I’m having a bit of a struggle today, but it’s just a valley I’ll soon crawl out of, I hope.
So moving on the the latest Camera Obscura release. Any thoughts from you guys?
The reason I have hesitated posting on this is because I felt I needed to listen to it a few more times through. I love the ambiance. Perhaps that’s the best characteristic of any Camera Obscura song. The one thing I miss from Maudlin is a song that makes me want to sing along. This disc seems a little more atmospheric and less sing-songy. It’s a great blend when played alongside “Let’s Get Out Of This Country” but I’m not convinced it stands alone just yet.
That’s why I think I’m going to need some more time with this disc. I am enjoying it more and more with each listen. So I could make a complete turnaround in a couple months’ time.
Plus I found this link to the band’s very own video vingettes talking about each track on the album. I think you’ll enjoy it.
