The album begins with the catchy synth and sleighbell filled intro of song, "What God Hath Wrought" until the crisp drums of very talented Brian Moen lead into the rest of the song, which ends with one of those jams I talk about too much (heehee, Im a sucker). Throughout the album there are obvious periods of more sincere and sad moments, but the band has the ability of keeping things happy. It's hard to explain. As a listener, I couldn't help but feel optimistic and in good spirit the whole time I indulged in the album. Maybe it's the soothing but slightly disheveled voice of lead singer Ian Jacoby or the glazy synthesizers and keyboards backing him.
Laarks has created a beautiful and very impressive debut album. Many others have given them similar feedback. I highly recommend you check these guys out and recommend furthermore that you snag this cd (got mine for **$5** from Amazon.com...ya 5 DOLLARS).
Lemme know what ya think!
