        Love this track. The only song I know that has the lyric "octopi" in it! Bravo!

      • 19:13 - sandyness: there should be a seperate field to put the lyrics in (it creates a lyric widget below the song info), no need to put them in the song description.

    With The Deadliest Fairytales, Rain Rain has knocked one straight out of the park.

    Everything in it is refreshingly off-kilter, from the quirky but thankfully clean and clear vocal delivery, to the ever-fascinating sound palette choices.

    And the lyrics? They're about as original as anything I can think of, and constantly demand your attention.

    The mixing is stellar. Everything hangs together as it should. Even though musically it skews heavily electronic, it doesn't succumb to cliche techno with over-sidechained four-on-the-floor beats. Instead, it allows Rain's wonderful soaring vocals to shine though, evoking a full range of emotions, and startling at times with lush harmonies better than anything I've heard in the mainstream recently.

    Each song is like it's own little universe, but as a whole the album is greater than the sum of its parts. The songs available for streaming here and elsewhere are by no means the highlights. It's riveting from start to finish.

    Obviously, the creating of these songs was a labor of love, and that feeling carries over to the listener.

    This listener, at least, will have it on repeat for quite a while!

      Sorry, I was a way from my computer the last several days and I just read this. Thank-you so much for such a wonderfully thoughtful review. You touched on so many of the things I was trying to accomplish as I was making this album. I absolutely wanted each song to be it's own time and space. I was wondering (if you wouldn't mind) maybe, copy and posting this on Itunes and Amazon. As right now the review section is pretty blank.Either way thanks again for taking the time out to write the review and I am so glad you like it! :)

        Ok, copied that review (with minor edits) to amazon.com, on the CD version. Hopefully it'll show up there soon and carry over to the mp3 download version as well. Alas, I'm not on itunes, but feel free to quote me there or anywhere. I would be honored. I actually wanted to write more, but I squeaked in 2 characters under the post limit with that!

        Of course, while I was on amazon, I ordered a copy of the CD. Several days in, and I'm still listening to the FLAC download on repeat, so I figure it'll be really nice to own a pressed copy. :D
