Great Band - only one album!

mconroy7000

Listening to this brings me back to 2003 - saw them when they played UVa. Fun, catchy album.

The Beginning

Paxmanifesto

This is the CD that brought me into the world of weird music. If I hadn't have found it (or had it handed to me really) I wouldn't be where I am today. Don't know if that's good or bad really, but I'm glad this album exists. Great and weird :)

Still going strong

burnboy

If you like the Islands, you have to remember where they came from. Without the Unicorns, the Islands would have never happened. 4 Years after this album came out, it still feels like a classic.

Up There

Bdub

I put this album up there with In The Aeroplane Over the Sea, Surfer Rosa, or even Abbey Road as an album that if I owned on vinly I would've completely worn it out. The songs are catchy without being repetive and cheerful while talking about ghosts and death. "Inoculate the Inocuous" is the song that I look forward to, but the whole album is a collection of tunes that makes me happy as a music listener.

Catchy, fun stuff

TangerineLemming

Comparing The Unicorns to Lou Barlow is as asinine as comparing Alison Krauss to Sinead O’Connor. They are nothing alike except that maybe their lyrics are dark, and their sound is a bit lo-fi. The Unicorns are gleefully morose and have you tapping along with tales of loss and woe. While this album is more upbeat and twee than their later “Islands” album, it’s great stuff. Give this twee pop sensation a listen, and you’ll be hooked.

Pop songs about death

Irish

More or less, pretty much all of these songs are about death. Or bands breaking up. Or ghosts. But they're so damn catchy. I love this record, it makes me happy, despite the death.

most overrated sh*t ever

betterthanyours

This is a cheap, crappy version of Lou Barlow, Mates of State without the craft or tone, and a band and a record totally for posers who aren't brave enough to try The Frogs, The Liars or other more authentic, thoughtful, less-Pitchfork-endorsed indie rock.

happy music

NothingLastsForever

have you ever heard a song that is so irresistably poppy that you can't help but smile and slyly tap along? if you relate to this feeling, then you will love The Unicorns. everything that they have ever done has been spectacular. no joke. my personal favorite on this record is "sea ghost" which starts out with a flute or something, and then just rocks. "the clap" is great too, and of course you can't forget "i was born(a unicorn)". i know a couple sites with bootlegs of their live shows, if you want more info about that simply friend me on the infamous myspace site. www.myspace.com/geniusoflove

They Say All Music Guide

Like their moniker implies, the Unicorns are whimsical, riding in a mythical world of lo-fi experimental pop. The Montreal trio (with help from several friends) is strangely lovable and lovably strange, sort of like a lo-fi version of the Flaming Lips. Bookended with the titles “I Don’t Wanna Die” and “Ready to Die” (which abruptly ends the album), Who Will Cut Our Hair When We’re Gone? has some accessible moments, while balancing some ambitious ideas with synths, recorder, pennywhistle, and clarinet. “I Was Born (A Unicorn)” best sums up their mindset: “We’re the unicorns/We’re more than horses/We’re the unicorns and we’re people too.” Add to that a trilogy of songs that somehow ties together something about ghosts and a song that critiques U.S. foreign policy and you’ve got an idea of the range here. Even if their shows supposedly involve puppets, homeless people, or fighting bandmembers, these unicorns are, for the most part, real. – Kenyon Hopkin
