Label: Atlantic - • Format: Vinyl LP, Album • Country: Germany • Genre: Rock • Style: Alternative Rock, Indie Rock Eleventh Dream Day - Lived To Tell (, Vinyl) | Discogs Explore/5(30). Jul 26, · BEET and LIVED TO TELL features the original line up of Eleventh Dream Day: Rick Rizzo on guitar and vocals; Janet Beveridge Bean on drums and vocals; Baird Figi on second lead guitar; and Doug MacCombs on bass. One of the joys of EDD concerts in was the incredible guitar interplay of Rizzo and Figi/5(6). Whatever pressure from Atlantic came down to record something user friendly, Eleventh Dream Day stuck to its guns with fine results on its second major-label effort. Rizzo and Beveridge Bean make a fantastic pair of front singers, strong without being overbearing, on joint harmonies hitting something not far off from the brilliant combination of X 's John Doe and Exene Cervenka.9/
Verified Purchase. This is the kind of band I could've seen myself in permanetly. Their music reminds me of Neil Young crossed with the best of Alternative country, but with rougher edges, if you can imagine that.
I used to listen to this CD along with Beet over and over again. I highly recommend buying this Cd. There was a problem loading comments right now. Showing 0 comments. Sort by: Newest Oldest. As my review of their reissued debut full-length, Prairie School Freakout, explains, I like more Janet Beveridge Bean's vocal variety that offsets her husband You Know What It Is - Eleventh Dream Day - Lived To Tell (Cassette Rizzo's Neil Young tortured epic guitar workouts.
But both are necessary for the complex approach that widens the path taken by college-rock bands of this era, that neither apes country twang or falls into workmanlike guitar rock. The tension of this combination makes this band memorable. Baird Figi on this his last album with the band makes his presence missed. Douglas McCombs matches Bean's drumming with an insistent and inventive bass.
It sounds magnificent. Lyrics, most often than not, remain as before and after for this band both smart and thought-provoking. Not every song is equally successful, and the slower ones either are lovely or sludgy. This happens on all EDD albums, yet they remain records that reward many repeated listenings over the years.
The half of this album that works truly dazzles. Heard on headphones, the "amp buzz" that on their debut LP thwarted the band's attempts at pure sound here becomes integral to the band's antsy, restless, ticked off attitude.
The music and the lyrics twist and wrangle. The instruments almost hiss with emotion. Hear this, and remember when the best of American indie rock conveyed literacy, a range of representative moods that span sorrow and joy, and a determination to remain true to one's aesthetic vision rather than eagerly selling out.
This band in fact endured, and still crafts solid and thoughtful music today. This phase is heard to excellent effect here. As I said, the pace is uneven, but the peaks here are worth climbing over and over, and even the valleys are worth the return trip. A class act. In May ofI was given free tickets to go to the Metro in Chicago to see a double bill. They instantly became one of my favorite bands, and have remained so ever since. In my opinion and many other Chicago music fans who spend a Album) of time in the Chicago club scene agreethe best alternative band our city has ever produced is Eleventh Dream Day, and not the Pumpkins or Urge Overkill or any other band.
Over the years, I have seen them play over 20 times, and that opinion has been reenforced over and over. The story of Eleventh Dream Day is short and not quite sweet. Signed to a major label, they wowed audiences wherever they played, Album), gathered armfuls of ecstatic critical reviews, and failed to get promoted by their label.
Critical successes, but commerical failures. Now, thankfully, the first two of these are rereleased. EDD wasn't just a guitar band, but they were at least that. Recorded, as the credits state and a photo in the album artwork confirms, "in a tobacco barn on the Niland's farm in Cub Run, Kentucky. Whatever pressure from Atlantic came down to record something user friendly, Eleventh Dream Day stuck to its guns with fine results on its second major-label effort.
Rizzo and Beveridge Bean make a fantastic pair of front singers, strong without being overbearing, on joint harmonies You Know What It Is - Eleventh Dream Day - Lived To Tell (Cassette something not far off from the brilliant combination of X's John Doe and Exene Cervenka. When Beveridge Bean takes over lead, as on "You Know What It Is," nothing about the intensity or ability differs -- Freakwater's frontwoman You Know What It Is - Eleventh Dream Day - Lived To Tell (Cassette already proved herself times over before that band had issued a note.
Figi's electrified lapsteel, as noted, adds fierce explosive power to songs like "Dream of a Sleeping Sheep. Even slower numbers like "Frozen Mile" crackle with a sharp energy.
A few guest performances don't hurt at all -- some tenor sax on "There's This Thing" and both calliope and cello on the waltz-time "Daedalus" -- but mostly this is Eleventh Dream Day ripping through a set of smart songs with all the wired passion one could ever want.
