Right then, one thing I can say about this new Oh No Ono record 'Eggs' is that its my favourite album of the year so far. It was my official 'waking up' music this morning and after a madcap dash through the snow to assist in hyperactive world of Norman Records I find its the first record on my pile to review. Strangely for such a super album the first track is fairly uninspiring but once you get onto the magnificent 'Swim' you find yourself in a magical world where Radiohead sing the hits of The Cardiacs and where progressive rock is interesting song structures and ambitious arrangements rather than a series of uninspired guitar twiddles (I'm looking at you Midlake and at you, huge chunks of Field Music's new album). From then on the album hits its stride with super mysterious off beat melodies and songs that charge along like someone running after a runaway vehicle. There are three or four superb highlights:- 'Helplessly Young' has a twisting turning melody that reaches new dizzying heights every time you think the peak of skyscraping song craft has already been met, 'Miss Miss Moss' will appeal to any Cardiacs fans lost and alone since Tim Smith's unfortunately ironic cardiac arrest that has put the band on hold. As well as the oft mentioned Cardiacs, comparisons can be made with Mew, Syd Barrett, XTC, Flaming Lips, Sparks, The Beatles, Jennifer Gentle and there's even a track that sounds kinda like the Fleet Foxes. It pretty much does everything at one point or another and is highly recommended.
