Portugal. The Man, Waiter: You Vultures!
Label: Fearless Records

"Weird Al" is what Portugal. The Man's MySpace page says under the heading "Sounds Like," and while that isn't really true at all, it gives you some idea where they're coming from. No, not Portugal: The quartet hail from Alaska, where the oddly monikered group developed its keyboards-and-effects-pedals-heavy sound. Not quite "dance-punk" (their rhythms are too rock-sprawling to herky-jerk boogie along to) and not quite prog-pop, Waiter: You Vultures! rides a path between the two,… read more »

CHICAGO

It's funny you mention how they are closely related to Circa Survive Jenny..I actually discovered these guys while they were touring with circa survive in 2006 at a place called Mississipi Nights..Great Album with lots of character

A Great find

When i searched for Portugal.the man on emusic, i was actually shocked that it was on here. This is my favorite Portugal album, its very creative, vocals are phenomenal, its one of those albums you play over and over...censored colors kind of disappointed me, as well as church mouth. They put on a great live show, and i hope i get to see them again soon. those alaska boys know how to play!

Rock solid

Good sound, great singing, and especially consistently strong melodies. Whoever is writing this stuff has an unerring melodic sense. Just about every track has taken my brain hostage for a few days, on forced melody auto-repeat (and I like that). I'm convinced that one day there will be *lots* of people who love this album.

Prog Rock Rules!!!

I can't get enough of this record- the music is dense and varied, the arrangements are great, the band is tight, and the singing is phenomenal. It falls into the indie prog-rock renaissance, as mentioned, but conveys its influences much less candidly than certain other bands. It also has great grooves, which tends not to be the case with a lot of odd-time complicated stuff. Highly recommended!

This is a good album kind of in the way circa survive was a good album but circa has an asshole lead singer hopefully this band doesn't!They are perhaps more original than that band and have more potential.Definitely if you love mars volta you will enjoy this, its not quite as crazy as them but nonetheless.Download and enjoy something a litle different...

Excellent

Perhaps one of the most original and fresh albums i have heard in a long time. Very melodic and has excellent flow. A must have for fans of the mars volta. Stunning vocals and lyrics.

They Say All Music Guide

Waiter: “You Vultures!” is an album decidedly of its time. Its pretentious title, punctuated as if ripped from a screenplay, should give most listeners an idea of what to expect. The album sees Portugal. The Man suffering or benefiting from an identity crisis. They seem unable to determine if they want to be a fractured art rock ensemble à la Blonde Redhead and Shudder to Think, a dance-oriented electro-indie act like Tahiti 80 and Phoenix, or a progressive-minded mood merchant like the Notwist. Along the way, piano ballads and screaming rants intersect, as the band rocks and stumbles like an uneasy mix of the aforementioned bands, crafting frequently catchy songs. John Baldwin Gourley offers mostly pleasant 1970s dance vocals. When Portugal. The Man stick to mellow post-rock, it’s somewhat smooth sailing, but they tend to take themselves too seriously. – Tim DiGravina
