Rainer Maria

Long Knives Drawn

Polyvinyl 57

Released on January 21, 2003


From the bombastic, gorgeous opening cut "Mystery and Misery" to its closing track, Long Knives Drawn is comprised of nine incendiary performances that hardly pause for breath. While so many of their contemporaries have turned in limpid, mid-tempo third or fourth efforts as they find themselves playing to a broader audience, Rainer Maria have taken the opposite tack, delivering a fearless and ferocious rock album. First 500 LPs pressed on COLORED VINYL.

this cd is pretty good... but not really my kind of music. strong female vocals and a good sound though, worth checking out.

on this album, rainer maria takes a bit of a more 'rock-ish' approach to their songs, which you can tell right off the bat by their first song. this isn't a bad thing (in my opinion anyway), but what I'm saying is that there's a bit of a change in their sound from albums in the past.

overall though, if I could give this cd a 6 then I would. I know that's been said over and over again by people writing reviews, but dammit I mean it. the lyrics are incredible (just as potent as their past songs) and SO SO SO catchy. I've had the cd for about a month, and every day I've got either 'long knives' or 'the awful truth of loving' or 'ct catholic' stuck in my head. which is a good thing.

This CD is amazin, its not usually the style of music I listen to but its so good I gotta. The album is perfect for chillin too after a hard day workin or whatever, it is also amazing just cruisin around too late at night. The band play melodic rock with a woman singing who has an amazingly beautiful voice. Highly recomended.
