In fact, "Shooting Star," which opens the album with a seven-minute stretch of dreamy vocals, plodding drums, and incredibly affecting melody, evinces no other group as much as This Mortal Coil. "Wish I Could Fly" is more clearly rooted in country-rock, or at least folk-rock. Built on a foundation of guitar arpeggio and fiddle ...

"Wish I Could Fly" is more clearly rooted in country-rock, or at least folk-rock. Built on a foundation of guitar arpeggio and fiddle ostinato, it's an irresistible piece of sweet, yearning guitar pop.

This is a rare gem of a debut from a band that already deserves far wider recognition.
