                            Hopewell — The Curved Glass

AllMusic Review by Jeremy Salmon; Score: ***
≡♠≡  The Curved Glass is a collection of spacey pop songs consisting of complex layers of instrumentation intermixed with bloops and bleeps. This makes sense, as the band shares members with Mercury Rev, among others. These are compositions of swirling sound collages from another planet. Each song has about eight or nine layers of music and sound effects filling your ears simultaneously. Occasional moments of Friends of Dean Martinez occur as well. The vocals are usually as affected as your standard Radiohead album, but without Thom Yorke's pained voice. The last sound heard on the record is a faint whooshing, like a recording from a distant rocket ship taking them back into orbit.
Siobhan Grogan, September 12, 2005; Score: 7/10
