SYNDICATE

Fiery Furnaces Im Going Away.jpgSound: Instead of continuing to see how far they can push the boundaries of music, The Fiery Furnaces actually rein in their music to a relative simplicity on par with their debut Gallowsbird’s Bark (my #17 Album of 2003). The multi-sectioned, ADD-friendly, tangential epics are replaced by a collection of streamlined songs. Their playful indie rock is as whimsical and scrappy as ever as they bounce between frenetic pop, lounge-like ruminations, swingin’ boogies and sinister grooves.
Heavy Rotation tracks: “Staring at the Steeple”; “I’m Going Away”
Medium Rotation tracks: “Take Me Round Again”; “Keep Me In the Dark”; “Charmaine Champaign”; “Even in the Rain”
Recommended: I’m Going Away isn’t quite as accomplished as their stellar debut, but it’s certainly their most focused and listenable release since then.
Grade: B+
