The Convenience of Indecision
10/23/2001 | Dirt Culture | www.dirtculture.com | Album Review
It's always difficult to listen to a potentially great CD trip over itself. Such is the case with The Convenience of Indecision--the long awaited full length album from Sorry About Dresden. The formula here is anti-formula, but it takes more that a few melencholy songs to build an album. Perhaps The Convenience of Indecision might have been pure genious as an EP, a few snips here and there, but as a full length it's hard to ignore the repetitiveness very much alive throughout the middle of the album. Although Sorry About Dresden's talent and potential are usually able to find thier way into the foreground, by the time you reach the two closing tracks (the brilliant “The Happy Couple" and the brutally honest “A Reunion of Sorts") it seems a real shame that the rest of the album wasn't as compelling.
