Unhearalded But No Less Spectacular
This album is not the first place you should stop if you are investigating Idaho's catalog, but I have no doubt you'll arrive here eventually once you discover just how amazing this unsung band is. The collection of songs we have here sees the band taking their volume and tempos to greater extremes but the tracks retain all the nuances that make listening to them so enjoyable. Two that bear this distinction in particular are 'shoulder back' & 'flat top." It is hard to imagine how songs with this much power and energy could be relegated to the sidelines for the albums that Idaho were working on at the time. Levitate & Hearts of Palm are more cohesive records (for obvious reasons) but this collection of tunes is no less fantastic & certainly worthy of your time.
