Yes, The Majestic Twelve, from North Carolina, are schizophrenic indeed! Album's title is not accidental. CRYYYYYYYYYYYYY Yeah - ya - yeahhhhhHHHH CR-CRYYYYyyyyyy!! Oh my.. Cry is a total hit, ultra powerfull song of raucous desperation, - Kenyata Sullivan screams His soul out loud as hell, and it's easy You have the shivers, - i felt the goosebumps all over my skin.. these sensations remembered me of some quality Sunny Day Real Estate picks, as well the frenzied Trapped Under Water. - And i didn't expected a song like that, because previous tracks Welcome To The City and sarcastic Condoleeza Check My Posse (or pussy?) are crazy pieces closer to Enon or B'52s' eclectism than above mentioned emo power-pop influences, also reprised with Whispering, Break It And Breathe, American Rage - while Are You Ready? is an odd thing out, - alcoholic song perfect for an october fest in Monaco. They alternate hilarious with melancholy, it's hard to keep still, if not where it's turn for calm piano song Grandfather, - the whole album is a strong set of catchy dynamic range, somewhat impressive. Last but not least, i must say i appreciate a lot The Majestic Twelve' no-copyright attitude, - some cd booklet notes explicitly invite to 'burn, upload, ipod, broadcast, bit torrent [..] pimp this disc..'. It's Music moved by Passion, You know.

I Majestic Twelve, dal North Carolina, sono davvero schizofrenici, - il titolo dell'album non lo trovo casuale. CRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYeah-ya-yeahhhhhHHHH CR-CRYYYYyyyyyy!! oddio.. Cry è nato per essere una hit, - una canzone ultra potente di rauca disperazione, con il cantante Kenyata Sullivan che grida fuori tutta la sua anima, - ed è facile avere i brividi, - io mi sono ritrovato con la pelle d'oca. Sensazioni simili le ricordo con i picchi di qualità dei Sunny Day Real Estate, come anche per la frenetica Trapped Under Water. - E non mi aspettavo un pezzo del genere, perchè le precedenti tracce Welcome To The City e la sarcastica Condoleeza Check My Posse (o pussy?) sono più vicino ad un certo eclettismo Enon o B'52s che alle sopra citate influenze emo power-pop, poi in seguito riprese con Whispering, Break It And Breathe, American Rage - mentre Are You Ready? è un'altra mosca bianca, - canzone alcolica perfetta per un october fest a Monaco. - I Majestic Twelve alternano l'ilare con il malinconico, - è dura stare fermi, - se non quando arriva il turno della calma piano song Grandfather. L'intero album è un forte set di accattivante dinamismo, - piuttosto impressionante. - Infine, devo ammettere che apprezzo molto l'attitudine no-copyright del disco, - con note del booklet che esplicitamente invitano a 'burn, upload, ipod, broadcast, bit torrent [..] pimp this disc..'. Insomma, è Musica mossa da Passione sapete..
