The Echoing Green continues a strong history of polished, energetic synthpop with this release.
One reviewer wrote: Listening to the Echoing Green, it's not hard to understand why front man Joey B. calls this aggressive smile pop at its finest. Music from the Ocean Picture contains track after track of glorious synth pop sure to put some warmth in your heart.
Infectious keyboards, tough loops, and passionate vocals add up to what may be the band's best work to date.
Song highlights include the sugary sweet "Goodbye", the synth love song "Beautiful", the bouncing "Trip", and the harsh programming and brutally honest lyrics of "Epiphany".
The rest of the album isn't filler. Rather, it's song after song of music that made the Echoing Green what it is today -- one of the best indie synth pop bands in all the land.
