THE SELDOM KEEN SID - Maian

1. It's simplistic electro synths & beats. Good straight forward male vocals & interesting lyrics too. ...maybe its too simplistic, but there's nothing here that offend my ears, so I like it.

2. This'd be a great fast passed song were it not for the annoying Scottish accent and the depressing lyric that conflicts with the otherwise up beat chorus. I don't want to hear this again.

3. A great start. a flamenco-y style guitar. I'm liking this ... alot. .... right up to the point when the indie female vocals kick in. (I'm not a fan of female vocals) ... as it goes, this song is still ok. I'm not liking it much... but the song is well written & performed, & that goes a long way.

4. This mellow rock ballad sounds fairly familiar to me. Maybe 'cause I heard the songs structure & chord progression so many times before... I'll forgive that though cause this is ok. The vocals are strong, & seem to have a narrative, which is nice. also the harpsichord sound is pretty cool.

5. Type-writer noise. Electro beats. not bad,... then the crap female rap vocals spoil it. Sounds like it was written by an 8 years old girl.

6. This one's familiar to me. Not really my bag, but I appreciate the quicky lyrics. Overall it's like eminem ... if eminem had a normal voice.

7. This one's familiar too. I'm sure it was a single. Not sure who though. probably one of indie bands of the 90's that I never got into. ... I won't guess though. I really like this.

8. Nice tune. Indie pop with plenty of synths, great vox. ...not much more I can say about this. I like it.

9. Indie rock. A female vocal that I actually like. ...great tune. This one's really grown on me.

10. Not keen on this one. It seems to cross many genres. It borrows different elements from various counties, none of which have any appeal to me.

11. Rock. Alright. not my sort of thing though. (I'm so hard to please)... I don't really like the main vocal on the verse. The chorus is alright though... & I enjoyed the phased guitar sections.

12. I really like this. Chilled beats & soft vocals. It works really well as an album closer. (I imagine it's also the closer on the album it's from).


A well picked album. A lot of the tracks have something in common in their sound. Although it was a mixed bag in terms of what I liked, ... a majority of it, I did like... so I give it a thumbs up.

6.5/10
