All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
The third album by Columbus, OH's Tiara kicks off with a self-indulgent piece of found tape noise mongering called "The Extended Forecast" that's as pointless and irritating as most similar experiments. Thankfully, however, it's only a little over a minute long, and after that initial misstep, things improve dramatically. The four-piece band mixes electronic textures into their primarily guitar-based songs in inventive ways, never letting the cool-for-cool's-sake sounds overwhelm the songs. A languorous atmosphere predominates, with indolent vocal harmonies and lazily strummed acoustic guitars the primary element in most of the songs. That narcoleptic atmosphere fits ...

Thankfully, however, it's only a little over a minute long, and after that initial misstep, things improve dramatically.

A languorous atmosphere predominates, with indolent vocal harmonies and lazily strummed acoustic guitars the primary element in most of the songs. That narcoleptic atmosphere fits singer Eric Rottmayer's lyrics quite nicely; even the relatively upbeat-sounding "What We've Become" is downright depressive in its world view, and nearly every song on the album has a melancholy tinge to it. As a result, the songs tend to bleed together a bit more than necessary, but tunes like "Grandpa Turns to Trains" and the epic, My Bloody Valentine-like closer, "Nowhere Slow," are solidly melodic and musically intriguing enough to overcome that slight handicap.

    TIARA are unknown stars.

    TIARA is a great band. A great band that no one knows about. YET. But soon, they will go the way of the white rhino into that great abyss that is stardom. With songs as strong as this, how could these guys not be recognized? Right? Wrong. Unfortunatly, TIARA will probably go down as one of the great unknown Indie-Rock acts of the early 00's. But if you like Elliott Smith or Death Cab you should probably buy this cd and have your own personal favorite unknown band at your disposal. you can say that you discovered them first.
