ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After countless eons of scheming and playing weightless instruments, The Misery Loves break through the atmosphere landing the most hook hungry independent recordings of the year. Ear-witnesses describe the music as sounds for the lost generation. Reports begin to surface that all five members are phantom-powered space puppets sent to Earth to save the human race from the guillotine of gutless corporate rock. It is eventually confirmed. The extraterrestrials are in fact a band in search of melodic redemption. A fanatical clan takes rise and hordes of misery heads follow the virtuous recording branded Letter to Life. The folk ballad, A Lot to Think About, becomes a hit and the band makes the cover of Rolling Stone wearing nothing but their tour helmets. The album goes gold, then platinum. Years of global euphoria ensue. Then alas you wake up; but you still check out the record because the world depends on it.

Beautiful Lyrics, Amazing Voice...Music That Matters!
These guys are great. I can't get enough of them. "Pennyless" is one of the best tunes i've heard in a long time and "A Lot to Think About" makes me cry. Every song speaks in its own voice but flows perfectly along in this beautiful piece of musical art. I wish this was the kind of music that was on my radio. I hope it will be soon! These guys write music that matters.

Everything rock was meant to be
If you were going to start a list of the current albums that represent the fulfillment of rock-and-roll's potential, this one would have to be in your top three. Musically, the songs are precise, innovative, and even playfut; don't sit there expecting to hear nothing but verse/chorus/verse/bridge/chrous. Heck, name the last song you heard, before "Already Know By Now," that ended on the bridge. That's like rough foreplay to the ears. Don't worry, you get the hard-rocking payoff in "Unafraid." But we haven't even mentioned the lyrics yet. The tracks highlight the beautiful cynicism of the wounded optimist. They oscillate between the "The Architect," which drops withdrawn observatons like hard rain on your bedroom window after that last big fight with your ex, and "Unfraid," which is an anthem for anyone who's ever gotten up and out of that bedroom. "Loving Yourself" in particular is a song you need to hear in its entirety because it changes into a different song entirely--both musically and lyrically--twice. So if you remember what it was like to be surprised, amazed, enchanted by rock-and-roll--to sit and stare at the radio or boom box with rapt attention, incapable of imagining where this would go next--you're someone who needs to pick up this album and feel that way again. Because that's what rock is supposed to be about.

You'll Love Misery too
I had been turned on to this act through my younger brother. He saw them in NYC at the Knitting Factory and played me a song from a demo cd. The band is great. I LOVE this cd. It is an easy listen the whole way through. The best thing is that it doesn't sound like everthing else out there today. I'm personally spreading the misery to several of my friends this holiday season.
