Cool Rock
I saw these guys at Pierogi Fest last summer and watched for the CD they kept referencing to be released. It was worth the wait - I love that they included a Pink Floyd polka on it as the only cover. The rest of their music is great and this is a good CD for background music. Several people have asked me what I am listening to at work and really like the interesting (without being weird) music. Excellent choice for summer gatherings.


Summer Soundtrack
Heard this from a friend of the band at a cookout - cool. The lead singer has a great voice and sound and the vocals are terrific. My boyfriend thinks the drums are excellent and we both agree that this a great new band. Hope to see them live around Chicago this summer. The lyrics are haunting once we got around to listening more closely.


Excellent Album Showing Depth and Maturity
"You're Never Lost Until You Panic" is by far my favorite album from the excellent band, Nomad Planets. I've been doing my best to introduce this band to my friends, and invariably the question arises: "What kind of music do they play?" My answer usually comes out something like, "Well, they are an indie rock band, but with influences of country, BUT's not REALLY country...maybe more of an alt country sound rock influences?...and an Americana sound that's a bit similar to Tom Petty...yet I can't leave out comparisons to Mark Knopfler...but...just listen to the dang album and trust me!" The very fact that Nomad Planets is so difficult to "classify" is one of the reasons that I love them so much. I love the fact that their material, while showing influences from a broad spectrum of of musicians, is distinctly their own. So when introducing my friends to Nomad Planets now, I've grown much more comfortable with simply telling people that the kind of music they play is "Nomad Planets"ish and worth a listen.

Interesting thing is that as I've listened to their latest release, what seems apparent to me is that they've also, as a band, become more comfortable in their own sound. Some songs seem more based in a traditional rock 4-piece format while others fit more naturally into a folk format. Sometimes the style shifts mid-song, and if it is appropriate, they will bring more instruments into the mix as they fit the song. "You're Never Lost Until You Panic" seem to be the best example of what Nomad Planets is about: crafting songs with meaning.

I have my personal favorite tracks on the album, but I've intentionally not listed them because this album has something for everyone, and the tracks that touch me the most may be different from what reaches other listeners. That being said, I would be especially remiss if I did not mention their cover of Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here. I LOVE Pink Floyd and consider myself to be somewhat of an aficionado and historian of the band...two words that boil down to the fact that I'm a Pink Floyd snob. I tend to be extremely picky about covers of Pink Floyd tracks and I'm not afraid to tear apart the numerous horrible stabs at their music such as "A Fair Forgery of Pink Floyd" and the atrocious "An All-Star Line-Up Performing the Songs of Pink Floyd." I have a lot of respect for Tommy Shaw, Dweezil Zappa, Billy Sherwood, Chris Squire, Alan White, and company, but they butchered the music I loved so much. Because of so many previous missteps by so many artists to cover the songs of Pink Floyd, I have to admit that I was a bit nervous when I saw "Wish You Were Here" listed in the track list.

I'm happy (and relieved) to say that Nomad Planets were one of the few bands to get it right when they created their own version of "Wish You Were Here." Rather than being a clunky embellishment or attempt to recreate something that already stood so well on its own, Nomad Planets took a wonderful song and made it their own. I heard one of my favorite songs, but instead of the feelings of nostalgia & wistful melancholy, I experienced emotions of joyful memories and hope of reunion. It was simply good, and that's one of the best praises I could ever give to a Pink Floyd cover.

Again, I loved You're Never Lost Until You Panic, and if you are reading this, "just listen to the dang album and trust me!"
