Heavy Rainbow
 
Heavy Rainbow Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $11.00
Artist: Soft Targets
 
 
Quantity:
 

Still sounding fresh today, “Heavy Rainbow”, Soft Targets' 2007 Brit-pop inspired sophomore effort, builds on the distinctive sound established on 2005’s “Frequent Flyer” - complex and sparkling clean guitar lines, surprisingly fresh hooks, and intricate arrangements - adding new dimensions to the songwriting, bringing in more layers and counter-melodies, experimenting with texture and song-form while at the same time, lovingly embracing the classic pop sweetness of bands like ELO and Todd Rundgren.  "Though I never really imagined a sophisticated marriage between the likes of Television and the Cure, it appears that the skilled and nuanced Soft Targets have done just that, with their curlycuing musical phrases and sobby-lipped pathos bearing down at the same time with ingenuity.  Opener 'Something Else' feels strangely curious and compelling: smart, but not smarmy, postured, but pop-a-delic. gratuitous, but gifted.  Can we call it prog pop?  The drama dripping 'The World Looks Bigger Now' drops in some healthy does of funk ala Talking Heads in brief bursts, to place some discoteque beneath the sophisto-tuneage.  Think ABC meets the Futureheads, a marriage that comes off clean and unencumbered."- Left Of The Dial  "An indie-pop album, with obvious glam rock influences (David Bowie, Roxy Music) which can especially be heard in Jesse Corry’s, vocals. There are some songs that grab my attention, like 'Sugar Glass,' which reminds me of a glam rock power ballad along the lines of David Bowie’s 'Rock & Roll Suicide,' and the dynamic 'The World Looks Bigger Now' which caught me off guard with its melodic guitars." - HaveYouHeard.net  "This is not quite power pop, and closer to indie pop with Corry's vocals almost like Peter Murphy without the baritone. 'Skyscraper' takes hold with a sharp guitar riff and catchy melody that merits attention. It's got a glam-like heart with some nice harmonies and proves to be the best song on the album.  The keyboard ballad 'Sirens' almost sounds like Eric Matthews or Cardinal." – Powerpopaholic.com  EXCELLENT!!
