"I'm Waiting, For You To Come Home"

Pacific UV - Longplay 2
Verdict: Love More (<3)
Pacific UV does one great thing with this album: it gives me faith that there will be, at some point, more than 3 or 4 really great Pop-Rock bands out there that people can point to and say "man, every thing they make is just transcendental." Longplay 2 starts off letting us know that they do, in fact, know of that one band that basically started Post-Rock (eh-hem, GY!BE), but also lets us know that, while they are minorly indebted to Godspeed, they don't need to basically reproduce what Godspeed has all ready done. I think the best way for me to describe these cats is to say that they sound like a mix of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Explosions in the Sky, and Sigur Rós, taking the best elements of what those bands have done, and reshaping them in new and exciting ways. No One can claim that this band isn't in the know.
