UK pressing of the 2008 album from the Bay Area Alterna-Rockers features one bonus track: 'Electro-Socket Blues'. Asleep At Heaven's Gate, their third album, has the touch of greatness. Ethereal vocal harmonies, lyrical mystique, evolving rhythm and structure, all comprise the hidden gifts of an album that reveals itself over time, and continues to surprise. Opener 'Harmonium' willfully escapes the shackles of verse and chorus, and the tumbling guitars of lead single 'Like I Needed' scoop glorious chunks out of Bay Area harmonies. 'Lake Michigan' builds ever skyward, the working hands of industrial America lay the foundation, guitars rally and vocals swell inexorably, in a grand realization of orchestral pop. 'Lullaby' is beaten out on the rolling groove of the chain gang, a seductive if sinister embrace, 'Ghost' takes a ride out into the hinterland, and 'Cheaper Than Therapy' hints at a brooding melodia between the albums moments of structural grandeur, delicate, haunting and spacious. With guest appearances from Matthew Caws of Nada Surf and John Vanderslice, the result is a tumultuous record of ambitious and inventive celebration. Island.

I can't understand half of what they say, but the CD is great. Whenever I litsen to it I think of faraway places and fairy tales. Asleep at Heaven's Gate never fails to bring a smile to my face.
