ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
STORYBOOK ENDINGS: 4 STARS
by KIERAN GRANT, The Toronto Sun

"Such mighty gifts in tiny packages come," whispers The Golden Seals' Dave Merritt on 'Letting You Down', halfway through his band's debut album Storybook Endings. The delivery, like so much on this disc, is so calm and gentle that you barely notice at first, but the phrase neatly sums up what is great about the work of Merritt and company. The silk-voiced singer spins deceptively mild songs out of complicated melody and bitingly intelligent folk-pop, using such sonic touchstones as The Beatles, early Squeeze, and Tom Waits -- at his most straight-up -- to create a warm and familiar setting for his sad, sweet, and wistful stories. Even a cover of Captain Beefheart's Frownland fits perfectly into this golden-hued song cycle. With excellent but unglossy production from Andy Magoffin (Two Minute Miracles), Storybook Endings is a superb effort.
