  • On 23, Blonde Redhead's second full-length outing for 4AD, the New York City-based indie-rock trio, fronted by reedy-voiced singer/multi-instrumentalists Amedeo Pace and Kazu Makino (Simone Pace rounds out the line-up on drums), continues to refine the intense, artfully eccentric sound that it crafted on MISERY IS A BUTTERFLY. Although there are nods to the band's guitar-driven formative aesthetic (see the majestic title track and the searing "Spring and By Summer Fall"), even these more energetic moments carry a fascinating, dream-like quality, recalling the mesmerizing atmosphere of the Cure's DISINTEGRATION, while other tunes mix goth splendor with Beatlesque flourishes (as on the disarming "SW"). Easily one of the most intriguing indie albums of early '07, 23 is required listening for aficionados of intelligent, expansive rock.

Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (p.75) - "Their seventh LP unfolds like a vivid dream, as Kazu Makino and Amedeo Pace's drowsy vocals float in and out of focus..." -- Grade: A-

Q (p.123) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Kazu Makino's breathy soprano soars on the gorgeous title track, while highlights elsewhere include the filmic 'The Dress' and the desolate, piano-driven 'SW'..."

Magnet (p.99) - "23 is a sinister, slinky catwalk with sharper melodic angles and a propulsive, post-punk groove, giving substance to all that style."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.110) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Their music is now writ large, although without losing any of its subtlety and idiosyncrasy."
