All Tomorrow's Party Yoo Doo Right, Yoo Doo Slide

All Tomorrow’s Party manage to stitch together disparate influences to fashion a highly engaging album. Yoo Doo Right, Yoo Doo Slide opens with an epic dirge that recalls Bardo Pond’s hypnotic approach, and then the disc takes an abrupt turn, delivering the fuzzed-out shoegazer pop of "Love Can Bring You Down.” The Japanese group also dip into blues rock territory on a couple of songs and pull off multiple transitions with ease. Rather than seem disjointed, Yoo Doo Right, Yoo Doo Slide shows varied tunes that are united by strong song writing prowess. (Alive!)
