 2007, BREECH,

 

"Addie's Diver has a potential to be many different things to different people. In my opinion the album really feels like a singular piece of work careens fluently between musical mania and depression, with songs often bridged by torrents of noise. There are, of course, a few songs that stand quite capably on their own. "Here Tonight" and "Attack 3", in particular, grabbed me very early on. Some of the more layered tracks like "All I Need is You" and "All My Love" took me quite a few more listens to really appreciate. While they are now probably my favorite on the album. The emotional and often cryptic lyrics provide a base and a focus for Addie's Diver, while still leaving the songs open to interpretation...or not. The multi-faceted (one could almost call it dualistic) dynamic nature of Addie's Diver keeps the listeners interest throughout the duration of the album and for many repeat listens. And I would have to say that the surprisingly listenable album is quite an achievement considering that the band's real strength has been (on certain occasions) to deliver unforgettable energetic and emotional live performances.

Great music can be said to be greater than the sum of its parts, and I feel that Addie's Diver is an example of this. In a sense great music can be said to be greater than the people who create it, the lyrics, the structure, the reviews...the music floats, beyond all reason and thought, to a place where the numbness of the physical world gives way to stark clarity of consciousness."
