Open All Night: In the City

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
Designed as a set of "ethereal alt-rock for the wee small hours," Open All Night: In the City offers 18 tracks drawn from the '80s and '90s that make a perfect backdrop for reflection and late-night musings. A consistent mid-tempo pulse and a melancholy mood assure that none of the tracks are jarring, but there's still plenty to chew on, such as the gilded atmosphere of the Church's hit "Under the Milky Way," the surreal vibe of Elvis Costello turning out "My Funny Valentine," the pretty-versus-angry dichotomy in "Clay Feet" from Kristin Hersh, and the spooky "Beatrice" from noted producer Daniel Lanois. Easier on the ears are delicate, intricately woven folk-pop ...

Designed as a set of "ethereal alt-rock for the wee small hours," Open All Night: In the City offers 18 tracks drawn from the '80s and '90s that make a perfect backdrop for reflection and late-night musings. A consistent mid-tempo pulse and a melancholy mood assure that none of the tracks are jarring, but there's still plenty to chew on, such as the gilded atmosphere of the Church's hit "Under the Milky Way," the surreal vibe of Elvis Costello turning out "My Funny Valentine," the pretty-versus-angry dichotomy in "Clay Feet" from Kristin Hersh, and the spooky "Beatrice" from noted producer Daniel Lanois. Easier on the ears are delicate, intricately woven folk-pop tracks from Beth Orton "She Cries Your Name", Sarah McLachlan "Fumbling Towards Ecstasy", and Elliott Smith "Miss Misery". Thematically, tunes such as the Barenaked Ladies' "When You Dream," the Smithereens' "In a Lonely Place," and Morphine's blues-tinged "The Night" deftly fit the bill. While the disc's premise may seem a little narrow, a wise track selection and a talented bunch of performers make it an asset for anyone's noir-tinged brooding.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Open All Night: In the City gathers late-night driving tunes from modern rock and adult alternative artists like Duncan Sheik, Daniel Lanois, and Freedy Johnston. The album manages to balance tracks from slightly underground artists like Beth Orton's "She Cries Your Name," Elliott Smith's "Miss Misery," and Kristin Hersh's "Clay Feet," with songs from classic artists, such as Elvis Costello's "My Funny Valentine," the Smiths' "Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want," and Billy Bragg's "Dolphins." Morphine's "The Night," the Church's "Under the Milky Way," and John Cale's "So Much for Love" are some of the other highlights from this surprisingly hip, nocturnally inclined collection.
