Who Said That Life Is Over
Knowing nothing about Low Water I frowned a bit upon taking a look at the
cover of Who Said.... Sleazy as a 80's heavy rock outfit and a tad
for my prejudices. But, of course, being open-minded by conviction, I've let
it roll around in my player a few times.
There are parts Replacements, parts Eels, parts XTC in here. But not a
part as good as any of the above. Sometimes it's as if they are trying too
times as if they're not paying enough attention to the music. Being a
self-produced record it makes me think that they should have called for
arrangements don't quite fill out the songs themselves and nothing much
really stands out. Although Leitera's lyrical twists can put on smile on me;
daydreams with a pen pal who never writes back".
And a song as good as "The Man Who Takes You Away" should make them
consider going into country...
