Leave the Story Untold

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jaime Vazquez
Before Belgium's Soulwax released their slick and enchanting album Much Against Everyone's Advice, they were cutting their teeth with their 1996 album Leave the Story Untold. While lacking the electronic exploration and pithy sense of humor that would later serve them well, the album displays delicious melodies, thinking person's chord changes, and the desire to expand beyond the guitar-bass-and-drums paradigm.

Before Belgium's Soulwax released their slick and enchanting album Much Against Everyone's Advice, they were cutting their teeth with their 1996 album Leave the Story Untold. While lacking the electronic exploration and pithy sense of humor that would later serve them well, the album displays delicious melodies, thinking person's chord changes, and the desire to expand beyond the guitar-bass-and-drums paradigm. Tracks like "Caramel" ooze with post-grunge melodrama, while others like "Reruns" show that they were tight enough and tough enough to have passed as a credible metal band. Forgettable lyrics give way to a band skilled at constructing a pop record rather than just a string of singles.

Leave the Story Untold is a solid and ambitious beginning for a band that, luckily for listeners, was just getting warmed up.
