Under The Weather

Listening to their album, Under The Weather, may cause you to make logical comparisons to David Bowie, The Kinks, and umm The Beatles (remember them? Yeah they were good). Well, these guys have a similar sound but enjoy the light-hearted and good-natured

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Westminster Abbey - Under The Weather
Reviewed by M+ Magazine

Rating: ****

The Westminster Abbey: To some it may represent a landmark, a place of worship for both gods and kings. To others it represents a magical band that came from the depths of the Fonderlock Forest to show the world what music is supposed to sound like. Listening to their album, Under The Weather, may cause you to make logical comparisons to David Bowie, The Kinks, and umm The Beatles (remember them? Yeah they were good). Well, these guys have a similar sound but enjoy the light-hearted and good-natured fun of their music perhaps more than anyone even knows. Classic instrumentation can be found on the record: kazoos, possible key tars, banjos, tasty guitar riffs.... And a heaping helping of some sweet harmonies make this album a grand ol' time. The album starts off quite stong with songs taking me back to the 1960s-when i was 20 years away from being conceived. Oh how I remember that familiar sound... There's only one reason you should compare this band to The Beatles, however, and it's not the sound. It's the honest fact that these slick fellas are damn good. Especially when it comes to songwriting, these boys are up there with the best of the best. It's time for a few favorites on the album: "We Are The Ones" is serene and upbeat, resulting in a put-together, thoughtful, and well-written tune. "Boys and Girls" is a classic sing-a-long track showcasing The Westminster Abbey's ability to stand alone with an acoustic sound and simple vocal arrangement. By far the standout track on this album is "The World Needs Love," which ranges from a simple acoustic sound all the way to a full-on raucous ballad. While most up-and-coming bands hit the scene with egos bigger than their paychecks and talent smaller than their...uh, never mind, The Westminster Abbey is the first in many years to bring both divine talent and respect to anyone and everyone who wants to hear what they have to say. So that's it - hope you're feeling fine. Now grab an umbrella, and go get Under The Weather.

I have listened to this damn cd over and over. Love it!
THE WESTMINSTER ABBEY "Under the Weather"

I have listened to this damn cd over and over. Love it! It sounds like THE BEATLES fronted by Ray Davies but if you listen closer, it sound like THE KINKS fronted by John Lennon AND Paul McCartney. Simply written late 60's flavoured tunes that would sit easily on "Abbey Road" and "Something Else". Reading their liner notes, I see nothing that says who plays what but the musicianship is fabulous. Only two people contribute and what they do is very minute. There is a cool spot on "Under the Weather" where three songs (I think) connect like the B side to Abbey Road. Sometimes I feel like they are taking from the old too much but it's so f'in good that I seem to not care about that so much. Even the production is top notch George Martin and Phil Spector. Plus most of their songs have a good message and lord knows we need more of that you fools! Support the music scene and buy it! It's FAB!

Cheers,

S Dub
