5.0 classiccamdizzle | December 22nd 07

This has become one of my favorite Albums of all time. I can legitimately say there really isn't a bad song on the album. Great music, great vocals, and the album itself flows so well. What makes this album a 5 though is the way they convey emotion. Today's prototype of 'emo' tends to be a pop-punk type band with overly-dramatic lyrics about a breakup with very similar vocal styles. The whole sound has not only become cliche, but in my opinion is not even an accurate depiction of the emotion conveyed in those songs. The Notwist, on the other hand, perfectly portrays a wide range of emotions without being too cheesy, dramatic, or boring. The happy songs are soft, content, and nostalgic; the sad songs are melancholy, numb, and a little detached; and many of the songs cover multiple emotions. "One Step Inside..." for example starts out with a confident sense of independence, but slowly transitions to a vague sense of loneliness. The bottom line is that this album has a crisp, original sound backed with genuine emotion. Buy this album as soon as you can.
