Cherish has the feel of a breakthrough, and Wes Eisold comes across as an artist with a vision that will resonate with a larger audience.
Like any album that dares to be as big and brash as Cherish the Light Years is, the risks can be as outsized as the rewards.
The confidence on display here is what makes each track so seductive.
If Cold Cave were British with a hint of hype or burgeoning sense of wider popularity about them, Eisold would probably be getting it from all angles about now.
Synthesizers everywhere! Love the lead's voice although sometimes it can become monotonous. The track Underground U.S.A. is probably the highlight for me.
