MagesApr 10, 2008I can't stop listening to it.
GuyH.Feb 26, 2008AMC back to what they do best - deceptively simple both lyrically and musically but over time all of those addictive little subtleties reveal themselves leaving you absolutely hooked. 'The Dance' is the undisputed highlight if you are looking for a standout track that will grab your attention straight away. The album contains so many incredible slow burners - 'Grand Duchess', 'Who You Are', 'Decibels' and 'Victory Choir' are four particular favourites. Give this album time - live with it for two weeks and I dare you to find fault. A 'Golden Age' indeed!… Expand
NuemesNuemesMar 30, 2008I think this is AMC's pop album. Golden Age does not have quite the depth or audio sonics of 60 Watt Silver Lining or Mercury. It sounds closest to West & Everclear in specific ways. Eitzel wrote easier to grasp and frankly, happier, lyrics on Golden Age and it's still 100% lovely Eitzel. Vudi's guitar work is much better here then on Love Songs For Patriots (he sounded rushed or unfocused on LSFP). Drums and bass sound good. I miss Danny's voice though, I think he's a good match with Mark. The backing vocals on Golden Age sound... boring. As far as AMC/Eitzel albums go I think it's an 8. As for comparing it to other artist's albums it's an easy 10. So I give it a 9 here. The Golden Age is brilliant and worth purchasing and will likely give you much enjoyment.… Expand

DejanSt.Apr 8, 2008Much more than I expected. A return to form. Beautiful.
GrahamS.Mar 5, 2008A return to form - for a recently reformed and remodeled AMC. High points on this disc, and there are many beautiful moments here-rival their best.
TaylorH.Feb 25, 2008This is naive and arrogant music at it's lowest. remember you are dying right this moment, so waste no more of your time reading this bitter attack on a stupid band with a stupid name........cheers, and God Bless You sheltered souls... oh and by the way, you're an idiot, though Jesus still somehow loves you.… Expand
