    I was really looking forward to this one - i'd read great reviews, and the cover art looks great. But... it's shockingly bad. Production values are terrible, the songs meander aimlessly (and not in a good way) and the lyrics you can make out are childish gibberish. Worst of all, for something that aspires to be unconventional and bohemian its just deathly dull.

    Do you smell that? Who cut a Cocorosie? Never you mind. I'll open a window and it'll vanish in seconds.

    There are no words to describe how terrible this album is.

    Kyle M is right. There isn't much out there that sounds like CocoRosie, and thank God for that. The world's most annoying group, hands down. Shockingly bad.

  1. Noah’s Ark is a distant album - one that outgrows a few fast friends made on Le Maison de Mon Reve and depends on those truly willing to listen. It is a record designed to make believers out of its fans, and is certainly not for the faint-spirited or fickle.
  2. The music is as soothing as a lullaby and as challenging as a modern art exhibit.
  3. Noah’s Ark proves, again, that the Casady sisters are perhaps at the forefront of the overlabored ‘freak-folk’ scene.
