    Excellent Album from Underrated Band

    While they may have broken up a decade ago (as of this writing), Beulah lives on through their music. One of their two greatest albums (along with Coast), Heartstrings (their sophomore album) is one of the most beautiful albums you will ever hear that isn't by the Beatles. Beulah can be said to be a master of lyrical dissonance - a delightful, catchy, positive tune will accompany some fairly sad lyrics (although this is not a hard and fast rule - "If We Can Land a Man on the Moon, Surely I Can Win Your Heart" is positive AND lyrically upbeat [and a wonderful source of debate as to its true meaning - is it about success as a band, is it a love song, or is it both?], while "Silverado Days" is slow, mournful, and beautifully depressing). "Emma Blowgun's Last Stand," 'IWCLAMOTMSICWYH," "Ballad of the Lonely Argonaut," "Score from Augusta," and "Silverado Days" are just a few of the standouts - yet you will not want to skip a single track. Fans of Top 40, pop, rock, and indie music will adore this album - and Beulah in general.
