Out Of Stock Midlake - The Trials Of Van Occupanther
"The Trials of Van Occupanther is such a nuanced, finely layered work that Midlake has certainly crafted one of the best releases of 2006.  The bnd has packed much sonic punch into the album’s 11 songs by using a variety of strings, keyboards, woodwinds, guitars, piano, and percussion. It’s the kind of ambitious music that recalls the finer moments of the classic rock canon.Songs that both evoke and at times equal everything from Neil Young to Fleetwood Mac to Jethro Tull to ELO to Dire Straits. That may be some pretty heavy company for a young band to be compared to, but a couple of listens to the album will make you a believer. While The Trials of Van Occupanther is intended to be a concept album about a fictional character’s trials and tribulations, it isn’t very hard to place the emotional content in the songs as barely disguised declarations of the group’s—and singer/songwriter Tim Smith’s—own internal life. Still there’s a certain ballsy-ness, if not nobility, in crafting a concept album so musically engaging. ...At the end, there must be something in the water down in Denton, Texas. In addition to Centro-matic and The Baptist Generals, we can now add Midlake to the city’s roster of impressive bands. With The Trials of Van Occupanther, Midlake moves immediately to the front of the pack" (Read More: http://www.popmatters.com)

About:"...Midlake could as easily hail from the 1970s as they do these post-millennial times: by drawing upon respected influences – Neil Young’s touch is apparent on more than a smattering of these eleven songs – but writing truly fantastical lyrics ever so slightly detached from reality they’ve created something that is truly timeless..."
