As its followed by "What Dogs See", four minutes of echoing rubble and near spoken-word mumbles, it initially seems like a pokey bit of sequencing, but the song evolves into a prelude to the deceptively bouncy "Wind Phoenix", which turns personal devastation into a sing-along. What's most admirable about this sophisticated self-released debut is Cymbals Eat Guitars' willingness to think big with gestures that shouldn't fly in the hands of a young band, instrumentally or thematically. Occasionally, albeit rarely, it leads them astray, as in the closer "Like Blood Does", where the group dawdles a bit too long before reaching its arresting conclusion.

Features Song Lyrics for Cymbals Eat Guitars's Why There Are Mountains album. Cymbals Eat Guitars - Why There Are Mountains Album Lyrics. 1. Some Trees (Merritt Moon) Lyrics.
Cymbals Eat Guitars steal brashly: "Cold Spring," for example, ruptures into what the band could only have referred to in practice as "the Modest Mouse part," all perverse locomotion and hoarse bleating, while the ramshackle wordiness of "Indiana" evokes Stephen Malkmus plainly, without reservation And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead guitarissimo and noble falcons of Sufjan Stevens brass. These guys are second-rate thieves, in other words, stealing at will but without the authorial command to make these goods their own.

That is Cymbals Eat Guitars's debut album, Why There Are Mountains. I was a bit skeptical at first. From the amount of albums I download, the majority of them are decent indie albums. I am used to hearing the same type of style, the same type of filler song, the same type of overused music cliche. And yet, Why There Are Mountains is perfectly guilty of that. In fact, you could go as far as to say that Why There Are Mountains is totally made up of your typical indie rock songs. Something to take note about with Why There Are Mountains is that there really is no low point during the album. Some Trees", although starting with a slow groove, turns into a up-tempo punk affair. Indiana" shows off more traditional indie rock colors with the inclusion of horns and piano.
