The first time you hear the Pindrops self-titled CD is much like eating a starburst fruit chew. There is a whole much of different sensations happening at the same time- It’s hard to articulate what is happening because of its utter originality. There is, or should be a genre that this album fits into but how do you categorize it? Its not alternative pop, rock, emo, or mechanical pop so for right now, let’s just bask in the eccentricity.  

The Chicago based trio has released one of the most original albums that I have heard in a long time. The lyrics are complex and thoughtful which compliments the strong musical talent and unity of the band.  You can feel some musical influence from the likes of Elliott Smith, The Flaming Lips, Beck and The increasingly popular Shins, but this is not a rip-off artist in the making- the entire album has individuality beyond compare.

The band shines on many of the tracks, but be sure to check out "Razorblade Twin", "What I Know", "27" and "Messiah". From start to finish, this album delivers. In fact, you’ll be so engrossed, well…you can hear a pindrop.
