    There's a clear aesthetic touchstone for pretty much everything this album does. If you're the kind of person easily frustrated by such influence-heavy music you'll be turned away, but I admire the consistency of songcraft needed to hold together an album pulling from so many places.

    Strange Ranger's music rambles along in sync with our inner thoughts — joyful and cheery, but at times full of doubt and overthinking. There are no definitive conclusions on Remembering the Rockets, but instead an analysis of friendships, relationships and everything in between, letting it all spill out in an extensive afterthought.

    Remembering the Rockets is everything one might expect from an ambitious, reverent band moving to the epicenter of American indie rock: It’s sharper and more purposeful, forged by the pressure of real expectations. The best album of their deep and underappreciated catalog, it also imagines a life after indie rock.

    Depending on your perspective, then, it is either surprising or it’s expected that Strange Ranger’s new album Remembering the Rockets finds the band settling into a sound and settling down.

O estilo rock indie é o bastante para colocar a banda "à direita do trono", no sentido positivo da definição. É o "american indie" no sentido mais puro da definição. Porém, ao longo do álbum Você começa a perceber que todas as faixas seguem um padrão de "silhueta sonora", incomoda um pouco (dá aquela sensação de já ter ouvido isto antes, no próprio álbum)... e dentro de cada faixa Você também nota o mesmo padrão. Os arranjos musicais até salvam, mas eles também vão se tornando repetitivos. No geral, é um álbum convincente. Expand
