JeremyFApr 18, 2007Now here's a band that is going to get slammed for whatever step they take. At least by some people. See that zero up there? Well, CocoRosie are very talented, and hardly deserve a zero, or even a 10 or 20. La Maison was very good, and haunting, but they showed some kind of a eerie charm. However, Noah's Ark, while still a decent album, fails to deliver with the same strength as La Maison. It seems like they are either trying way too hard to incorporate the loud, obnoxious toys, OR they are trying enough. Whatever the case, this album ends up being quite a dark, annoying, sometimes-almost-scary adventure. With the exception of some amazing tracks (K-Hole, South 2nd, Noah's Ark, and Honey or Tar) this album fails compared to the last one AND the 3rd one. The interludes Brazlilian Sun & Bisounars [or whatever] throw me off completely, and I'm glad that Honey or Tar, the great last song, IS the last song, at 2 minutes and 8 second. Seriously, CocoRosie are clearly talented, this just isn't as refined as they OBVIOUSLY can be. Big fat 4.… Full Review »
