    yeah it's good shtick - good sonics on the album but the whole damn thing get's cloying after a while - high school musical-like inspirational music is not revolutionary! and something that rips all the big symphonic britpop stuff too at that - how many songs about the sun and sky can one take? it does get too saccharine...one trick pony

    Anyone who gave this album a 10 should listen to Flaming Lip's 'The Soft Bulletin' first and realize that, for this kind of music, it's already been done - better. This album is the equivalent of watching soft core porn.

  1. The problem with rapture is that it's exhausting, so Together is best enjoyed a few tracks at a time.

    Together We're Heavy's transcendent qualities grow as it flows onward, and the sheer musical ambition of the Spree's pet sound finally, really defies cynicism. [Aug 2004, p.116]
  3. Thankfully, the music overpowers DeLaughter’s weak voice.
