    Am I the only person who thinks the production on this sounds unreasonably cheesy? All the instruments sound like midi, which - whether or not they are meant to sound that way - ruin the otherwise decent songs. It's very frustrating to listen to.

  1. Though their approach hasn't changed from the radically orchestral turn of 1998's Deserter's Songs, these songs are far more personal than their last set.
  2. Mercury Rev has not only matched the Herculean effort of Deserter's Songs, they've surpassed it.
  3. Moody, majestic, and unpredictable, All Is Dream plays like Deserter's Songs' evil twin, polarizing that album's gently trippy, symphonic pop into paranoid and exuberant extremes.
