4.5 superbJeremy Fisette | February 13th 08

"Tell me where you've been, I'll tell you where I've been; It will be okay" Matthew Houck sings on "A Picture of Our Torn Up Praise," the opener to his most recent record under the moniker Phosphorescent. Pride is a delicate, hymnal record with hints of acid-folk (in sound.) The aforementioned "Picture" is a beautiful, warm welcome, with multi-layered harmonies and one of the best triple threat songs (melody, lyrics, music) of 2007. The 6-minute "Wolves" is another highlight, with its extremely beautiful vocals, perfect instrumentation, and great imagery ("They tumble and fight and they're beautiful") The marching band-esque drumming of the brief "At Death, A Proclamation" seems out of place, but nonetheless, this short number is undoubtedly good. The epic "My Dove, My Lamb" perfectly mixes acoustic and soft electronic elements, into an opus of deep passion and the most believably lovelorn vocals of the record. Aside from the unfortunate title-track closer (such a jump away, it consists almost entirely of odd vocal noises for 6 long minutes that seem like 10) Pride is a marvelous, breathtaking record that deserves the downtime of anyone and everyone.
