Fluffhouse review of Sometime Anywhere Print E-mail
Tuesday, 07 October 2003

Originally published at http://www.fluffhouse.org.uk/musicreviews/album.php?albumid=145

In the early 90's the Church just got better with every release, and this was their best to date, until "After Everything Now This" came out. Combining psychedelic, alternative and even prog rock, they have a unique sound, refined over 15 or so years. Songwriting of this quality should not be so little-known. Steve Kilbey's lyrics are as distinctive and obscure (or "pretentious" if you like) as ever, and little touches of inspiration are everywhere in the music. "Day of the Dead" is brooding and swampy, with plenty of guitarist Marty Willson-Piper's screechy twangs. "Lost My Touch" ingeniously combines sarcastic rapping verses with an insistently repeating chorus. "Loveblind", a bizarre parable of a "faceless man" has a strong jangly riff. The next couple of tracks drag a little, but the grinding "Angelica" has a daring middle section with gypsy fiddle and gothic strings. "Eastern" is suitably tinkly and exotic. "Two Places at Once" and "Fly Home" are slow and reflective pieces featuring Marty's more mellow voice. The sardonic "Business Woman" has a catchy strum, and "Authority" has another great riff.
