Upon first review of this album, 'Mountains' may barely score 2 stars from the listener. Timony's previous band and project, Helium, was such a tour de force-- yet easily one of the most overlooked alternative bands in the 90's. That may be the story of Timony's life. She is just so damn underrated. After a few listens, 'Mountains' is incredibly deep. Perhaps, a bit medieval too, sure. Though a lo-fi produced album, the guitars are rich, the piano: pensive, and her voice as full as ever. Her opener "The Dungeon Dance" is a quick, simple piano and voice number. And when she whispers- everything slowly comes to a halt, yourself included. Other fine examples on the album (though essentially each song is), are "I Fire Myself" which though incredibly catchy, is really more disturbing lyrically. "The Hour Glass" is quite a standout, merely for the radical violin that controls the song. "An-Deluzion" is spacey and plain gorgeous, while the closer "Rider on the Stormy Sea" can sit with the best of Helium. All in all, this is an album just needs some patience.
