WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT FULL:
"FULL has managed to make complex, shifting, and what should be difficult music sound like pure pop. It's a recipe that's destined for the big time."
"...the most innovative sound I've heard come out of Michigan."
"Dimstar is something of a triumph."
"[Dimstar is] the surprise favorite of the year, the one that swooped in unexpectedly and ROCKED US! BEST of 2003" Both Sides of the Surface
"...a head-spinningly creative local (Detroit) band who, by all rights, should be the recipients of all the attention and praise that is currently being lavished upon the White Stripes..."
"Now things are starting to get interesting...[Dimstar] is one of the more intriguing albums I have ever reviewed."
"...perfectly moody and moodily perfect."
"...[Dimstar] is the most eclectic and original sound I've ever heard on one album thus far! Forget the phonebill, buy this album at any cost!"
"...vocalist Ms. Wings has an absolutely stellar voice - her vocals and harmonies would be absolutely show stopping"
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING FULL SOUNDS LIKE:
"FULL seem like nothing else on Earth - a furious, terrifyingly rambunctious collision of jazz dissonance, pop philanthropy, punk energy, hyperrhythmic derangment and avant-garde exploration."
"They call it avant chamber rock, and while throughout Dimstar FULL often comes off faux jazzy, slick, and too deliberate, beneath the surface this record is really a masterful cross of early solo Björk somnambulance, India Arie soul, and utopian Tortoise-ized post-Disneyland sounds."
"It would be quite easy to compare them to the likes of an experimental Radiohead but luckily FULL are more interesting than that."
"...Beth Gibbons, Bjork and Prefuse 73 are appropriate comparisons, but the music's sheer organic intensity is warmer than those artists imply."
"...they embrace a wide range of instrumental sentiments (ranging from cellos, vibraphones and trumpets to your more standard set) and risk venturing off into the parallels of drum n' bass, jazz and rock. There is no 'typical FULL sound'."
"The music is dreamy, jazzy, loungy, almost trip-hop, and all around cool."
"Evocative, sexy, energetic, mellow, anything but what you most expect, [Dimstar] is a beautiful mix of soul. Exotic, haunting, dreamy, psychotic, these songs are a trip through layers of metaphor and complexity while all the more pleasing to the ear and shifting emotion." www.CoolGrrrls.com
