|Nada Surf - Let Go (album released 22.09.02) Inside Of Love (single released 12.05.03) reviewed|
Each of the twelve songs on 'Let Go' are highlights in their own way, but the songs that rein in the garage rock tendencies are the most affecting. 'Blonde On Blonde' considers how Dylan's album is a 'lullaby, from a giant golden radio', and serves as an equally apt description for much of 'Let Go'. This is evidenced on album closer 'Paper Boats', with it's fragile guitar picking and the captivating warmth of the whispered vocal. Just as the album seems to be fading away the tempo is picked up for the final chorus, and that really sums up 'Let Go', endlessly surprising, but never less than perfect.
