The unusual sounds continue on tracks like “Wrong Opinion” and “Turning.” The latter track is a particularly unique one on the album. It employs echoing vocals and a minimalist instrumentation to create a dream-like fantasy feel that is very compelling.
While listening to Something I tended to gravitate toward a few select songs rather than enjoying all of them. Often I found that the lack of hooks and memorable choruses and the focus on odd sounds took away from the album. It could have been considerably more accessible. And while the chronic indie-music listeners would have no problem with the eclectic sound of the album, the average listener would have trouble finding something to latch onto. While I could appreciate the diversity and quality of the album, I would be unable to listen to it for very long.
Overall, I would recommend listening to a few tracks on the album before making a purchase. The sound of Something is not for everyone, but for a certain few, the album may be just your cup of tea.
My rating: 7.5/10
