Songs from the 13th Floor
 
Songs from the 13th Floor Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $15.00
Artist: Alain Pire Experience

It is highly unlikely that the sympathetic doctor leading the charge is about to end 64 years in this futile world.  The most paradoxical thing is that the unlikely Mr. Pire hides at least 30 years of age when he sings. And this wonderful, youthful voice and interpretation would probably be the most exciting on the record if the trio didn't deliver the chops and lessons it delivers: we're talking about great musicians, but their ability not to stifle their youthful excitement as if we are in 1967 and they are opening new avenues for music. “Despite the band's declarations and clear influences, the album's production is full and clear, and in combination with all of his youthful disposition, makes the whole thing sound fresh.  Pire has the talent to blend the pop side of psych sound into tracks like the wonderful opener ‘The Sun Don't Shine’, but most of all, when ‘The Moon Is On The Rise’ and its awesome climax, with rockier formats like the also good ‘Smoking DMT’, and from there comfortably in a la ‘Interstellar Overdrive’ exercises ‘Turn on, Tune in, Drop Out’ and improvisational mood of ‘You Walk Around’ and ‘Learn to Fly’, result in a simple, clean, beautiful melody of ‘Our Life’.  If it's not already clear, here's a great recording, all of which listens to you and at the same time makes you in the mood. Lovers of psych audio are well worth a look.” – Soundgaze.gr  “As excellent as the ‘Cambridge’ album was, ‘Songs From The 13th Floor’ is even better!” – PsychProgFan   TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR EXCLUSIVE 3-FER OFFER AND GET THIS, “APEX”, AND “CAMBRIDGE” CDs FOR ONLY $39!  IF PAYING BY CREDIT CARD, YOUR CARD WILL BE CHARGED ACCORDINGLY.  IF PAYING BY PAYPAL, YOU WILL BE REFUNDED THE APPROPRIATE DISCOUNT!  GREAT!!
