Pedro The Lion

Achilles Heel

Jade Tree 1095

Released on May 25, 2004

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

First 100 orders receive a free button and sticker.

Simply put, Pedro The Lion have finished the album of their career. After the substantial success of Control (Jade Tree, 2002) it was just a matter of time before PTL-mastermind David Bazan would actualize his full potential. Though, Bazan, as always, is far too humble to see this particular forest for the trees; "I just wrote some songs and set out to present them in the clearest, most straightforward way possible." Regardless of his modesty, Achilles Heel is classic, richly crafted and deceptively sweet, lyrically as sharp as ever.

I liked it alot, i had it for a while and was rather sick of the indie/emo stuff but one night i couldn't sleep listening to something louder and i put this in and it put me to sleep, but in a good way, very coming and melodic, recamended

Pedro the lion are one of the best rock acts of this age. Their amazing temproment and adjusting style are yet to break the commercial barrier (which is a great thing), but 'Achilles Heel' is the closest they have come so far. The album is as beautiful as any of the others however 'Control' is by far my favourite album and I was hoping this album would head in a simular direction. I was wrong. Even though David's song writing ability is as powerful and thought provoking as ever, the emotional impact of 'Control' is something that I dont think can be beaten. 'Achilles Heel' is a modern rock masterpiece that is as subtle as it is challenging, the vocals are smooth, soft and easily digestable which cuts nicely with the melancholic pop backdrop of guitar and gentle drum beats. This is a pleasant album but is not one I would recommend to a "newcommer" to the band. Pedro The Lion are truely remarkable, dont miss out!
