Wide-Eyed And Mystified
Released: May 2006
Label: Centricity Music (CEY)
Still obscure after two albums, Downhere released a third, that (did, will do) wonders for their rep. How can you miss when vocals have the fluidity of Queen, the baritone depths of Crash Test Dummies, the Brit rock warble of Delirious and the gravity of U2? Their sense of melody is impressive, enlivened with spiky punk influences ("More") and majestic chords that bring Flaming Lips to mind ("Forgive Yourself"). Also, don't miss "Remember Me," "The Real Jesus" and the secret "line" after the last song.
