8/10 Phil Staff review, 05 July 2007Touch & Go have complied together some of The For Carnation's 2 x EP (Fight Songs and Marshmallows) and put them together in one handy compilation for those too lazy to hunt out the proper thing. You should be ashamed of yourself. In case you don't know who they are.... they're a kind of supergroup featuring David Pajo (Slint, M, Aerial M, Papa M, Zwan....), Brian Mcmahon (Slint) and a couple of dudes from Tortoise... someone else as well but I'm too lazy to research. You think I've got time to do research already?? Well listening to this it sounds almost like the mellower end of Spiderland without the creaming mental health problems and the incredible drumming. Also the songs aren't as good. But hey you don't want to compare this to Spiderland. I'm sure Mcmahan has had that done for years and it's got to piss him off. The songs here do stand up on their own and if you're after some of the early influences on post rock etc then look no further. Promised Work is CD only for some stupid reason.
10/10 Thomas Customer review, 13th July 2007
L'un des meilleurs groupes de tous les temps ? Promised Works réunit deux disques sortis quelques années avant le grandiose album éponyme de 2000. Le groupe égrène le temps, comme des vagues au ralenti dans lesquelles on se laisse plonger. Lien ci-dessous pour un interview en francais:
