Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Carlos Anthony Molina (bass guitar); Jason Miranda (drums).
  • In their two-decade history, upstate New York-rooted psych-meisters Mercury Rev have been by turns loud, spacey, beautiful, introspective, and transcendent. On SNOWFLAKE MIDNIGHT, all those elements find a home at last, making it a place of musical and spiritual reconciliation for frontman Jonathan Donahue and Co. The record's most striking moments are the contrasting organic and more synthetically manufactured sounds, both of which contribute to archetypal Rev epics like "Dream Of A Young Girl As A Flower." But the best way to rate a Mercury LP is whether it feels like the sonic equivalent of a dream. In that respect, SNOWLFAKE whips up a tranquil storm.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] wonderfully skewed arrangements....A testament to the vision of a band that values 'sound over sense' and is still evolving nearly two decades on."

Entertainment Weekly (p.76) - "'Senses on Fire' is a twisted, hummable synth-pop classic." -- Grade: B

Alternative Press (p.161) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's as dreamy as Mercury Rev have ever sounded; its largely electronic soundscapes suggesting a post-rave showing of some futuristic arthouse film."

The Wire (p.53) - "[I]t's an album about the beauty and perishability of this life, at once monumental and evanescent in feel....It's pop, but pop from a faraway, better and unreachable place."

CMJ - "On their seventh studio album, alt-rock vets Mercury Rev blast their usual space-pop into an even more amorphous, post-apocalyptic realm."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.102) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Seven albums into their shape-shifting career, this Buffalo, New York-formed outfit can still arouse the kind of wonder you felt as a child contemplating the star-speckled heavens."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.69) - Ranked #22 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2008" -- "[A]n album that lingered like a lucid dream."
