About a year ago, this guy sent me a couple CDs he was promoting. I loved Mittens, a `60s-influenced guitar pop group, and I thought Anthems for Odyssey, a female-fronted emo/shoegaze act, was pretty decent. (You can check those groups out at As Built PR’s MySpace.) He also sent this, the fourth album by a California act called the Said. I listened to it a couple times and attempted to start a review, then shelved it in frustration. The main reason was that I couldn’t stand the vocals. The music seemed fine, but I couldn’t stand David Brun’s annoying mild sneer or that untrained vibrato he puts on everything longer than a quarter note. Why review it now? I can’t even find these guys online much of anywhere and they may be broken up. Well, I’m down to the bottom of my pile, but new stuff is on the way! Yay!
