FYD Review of This Was A Giant

This here's a gem. I'm a sucker for good singer/songwriter stuff. Especially when it's not derivative. Like the stuff Jeff Buckley did. Purely something internal...not something made to fit a genre-defined mold. can tell this Holder guy's just living it, opening his heart and dumping it onto wax.

There's a lot of fun stuff on the record. The bass is positively gooey, and the instrumentation on most tracks is a wonder. "Have Paint Will Travel" sounds, at first, like typical college radio fare, but if you stay with it and then crank it up like I'm doing right now, it's got this great running T. Rex-y squonk and then this super-cool echoey Boston-esque space guitar thing going and, damn, this is a really gorgeous piece of music. Hand-fucking made. Like the best cookies you'll ever eat. Why would you pick Chips Ahoy over this?
