Alone I Admire

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Too relaxed to be true rock & roll and not quite ambient, Auburn Lull's debut CD, Alone I Admire, is more like symphonic space rock for the horn-rimmed set. The album is epic in scope, drenched with lazy keyboards, ethereal guitars, and synth-heavy textures. Songs move at a turtle-crawl pace, with shambling noise and sleepy attitude.

On a few of the numbers on Alone I Admire, drummer Jason Weisinger uses brushes rather than sticks, creating a jazzy, early Verve feel. Andrew Prinz's production suits the compositions well, mixing somber bass tones with the occasional piano flourish or drum loop.

While not as adventurous as labelmates Asha Vida and Mahogany, Auburn Lull has produced a fine debut and their best music to date. ~ Dale Nicholls
