The Ugly Organ

02/19/2003 | | | Album Review
Cursive seems to be one of those bands that just gets better and better, showing no signs of letting up on their newest masterpiece, The Ugly Organ. If you were impressed by 2001's Burst And Bloom, just wait till you get your greasy mitts on this one.

Lyrically potent and musically fascinating as always, this record is both dark and disturbed. Listening to Cursive delves deeper into the depths of depression only to pull out some of the most beautiful and charismatic songs I've heard in a long time.

Putting more focus on the string section which supports the five piece on previous records, The Ugly Organ was an intense listen which is so pleasing to the ears; it literally kept me up at night. As dark as the melodies are, I still found myself humming them everywhere I went.
