Review: The Forms

The Forms

The music on “Icarus” is about as unreserved and beautiful as the scenic pictures in the album sleeve and the enhanced portion of the disc.  Arrangements on this handsome 18+ minute disc are reminiscent of caP’ n Jazz because of the playful but screaming vocals mixed with minimalistic crunching guitars and powerful drums.  Production wise you couldn’t ask for anything more than Steve Albini and John Golden.  Music of this temperament has a complex nature that my mind just sort of gets lost in.  Why couldn’t this album be longer?  These kids are wearing some pretty big shoes, let’s just hope they can fill them.
