Llama Farmers "Dead Letter Chorus"




Me lo ricordo quando uscii questo disco. I Llama erano sempre descritti come una scheggia di grunge nel panorama britannico. Sempre presente questa parola nelle recensioni del gruppo (anche in quella che trovate qui sotto!). Cosa che tra l'altro non è neanche così blasfema. E' un buon disco di rock figlio degli anni 90, questo si, con melodie e chitarre in grande evidenza. Tutto già sentito mille volte. Ma chi se ne importa in fin dei conti...(1999 Beggars Banquet)

The Llama Farmers' debut album Dead Letter Chorus mixes big, grunge-indebted guitars and drums with a subtler sense of melody and songwriting than most British alt-rock bands (Muse, Feeder, and Reef) posess. The group's best songs, like "Always Echoes," "Lull," and "Jessica," blend their Seattle fixation with a healthy dose of jangle-pop, but "Pornaco," "Zorillo," and "PVC" try too hard to rock out like old-school grunge and wind up sounding derivative. Though Dead Letter Chorus is a mixed bag, it does show potential for the Llama Farmers to develop a more distinctive, personalized sound. (Heather Phares, All Music Guide)
