The Sun Is Often Out Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

The Longpigs' debut album The Sun Is Often Out is an ambitious, darkly romantic album that owes quite a bit to the modernized anthem-rock of Radiohead. Although the band doesn't quite have Radiohead's talent for making the bombastic seem utterly personal, there are several moments of brilliance on the album -- particularly the singles "Far," "She Said" and "On and On" -- suggesting that their appealingly neo-gothic sonic textures will develop into something distinctive on their second album.
