The Necks, Townsville
Mell-ooooooow, great piano, classic Necks music. Put this 53 minutes worth of jazzy-alternative-piano feel good-blues on and sip some wine, fall asleep, listen to the rain, or relax and read a novel. Great background music for just about anything you want to do, it's the classic drivng background drum/cymbal with the repeatibility of nothing going on. Once again, a good sound track for anything in your life. I discovered the Necks in a now-defunct CD store in Los Angeles, and was so captivated, that I had to make the trip to 'Down Under' to find out more about this group. Their best CD, by far, is "Aquatic" followed by "Sex" (if you can find it, GET IT where you can ;) Found it in a used CD store in Sydney (haha)....recommend this group for something different, something you can get addicted to, something soothing to fall asleep to, something the mature audiophile looking for music just a bit different can really appreciate. Gotta love those Aussies.......
Love this music, mesmerizing two-chords tonality on tones. It'll grow on you,.....
Discovered Drive By and was really psyched to check out some other albums from The Necks as I really enjoyed it.
This is my second album purchase by the necks. Towsville is a bit too similar throughout the entire album with a consistent tatatatatatatatatatata on a light cymbal or high hat, constantly…..the entire hour of music. There's just not enough variation in rhythm or beat to be engaging.
Not a good effect, for me, ultimately unhappy with this album and I will likely never listen to it again. It really is that annoying to me.
Skip this one.
I want to check out their album, "sex", but iTunes does''t have it.
