    Big Boat could easily be perceived as the natural sequel to Fuego, but it works spectacularly well on its own, with Bob Ezrin guiding the band through a variety of song styles from breezy pop to elaborate prog rock.

    These are nicely captured, feel-good staples that will likely have their best moments on-stage, contracting and expanding each night at the whim of the band. Where things get more interesting are on songs like Page McConnell's "Home" and "I Always Wanted It This Way," two tracks where Ezrin's classic rock touch and Phish's progressive tendencies neatly dovetail.

    Big Boat, is wonderfully accessible thanks to its relatable sense of communal fun, as well as the band’s own self-awareness.

    Their records are blueprints laying out a basic architecture to be improved upon, expanded or subverted when the band plays live. Big Boat offers glimpses of the group's playfulness.

    On Big Boat, their rambling new album, veteran producer Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper, Lou Reed) does his best to emphasize the band's considerable knack for genre-bending exercises.

    On Big Boat, they come up with a few winning moments.

    Este álbum tem de tudo um pouco. No começo, as musicas tem uma pegada "indie rock" e um pouco de anos 80, mais no meio do álbum tem algumasEste álbum tem de tudo um pouco. No começo, as musicas tem uma pegada "indie rock" e um pouco de anos 80, mais no meio do álbum tem algumas musicas folk e musicas eletrônicas estilo anos 70/80 e a ultima musica é um jazz contemporâneo. 13 musicas, uma diferente da outra, sempre é um bom investimento , pois, de primeira, a tendencia é gostar mais de algumas musicas do que de outras e conforme o tempo for passando as musicas vão continuar tocando e assim, acaba-se gostando do álbum inteiro mas não de uma só vez. Vale a pena escutar. Expand
