Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Recording information: The Solar Powered Plastic Plant, Los Angeles, CA.
  • More than six years after his lauded 2002 debut, SLEEPING ON ROADS, Mojave 3 frontman Neil Halstead finally unveiled another solo album, OH! MIGHTY ENGINE. While fans of Mojave 3 and Halstead's earlier shoegaze act, Slowdive, may be somewhat baffled to see the record issued on Jack Johnson's Brushfire label rather than 4AD, the unlikely association makes sense on certain levels, particularly since Halstead's own outings are appropriately acoustic and mellow, and the British singer-songwriter shares Johnson's passion for surfing. Like ROADS, ENGINE is carried by Halstead's gentle vocals, thoughtful lyrics, and spare folk-tinged arrangements (see the lilting "Witless or Wise" and the pastoral "Little Twig"), making the album a fitting follow-up to the previous outing.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.108) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[G]ripping....Thoughtful tales like 'Little Twig' skillfully capture troubled lives without undue fuss..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Highlights include the lonely folk ballads 'Witless Or Wise' and 'No Mercy For the Muse,' and 'Sometimes The Wheels,' a slacker meditation with an impossibly catchy chorus..."

Paste (magazine) (p.62) - "OH! MIGHTY ENGINE returns to the land of sublime bedroom pop, all acoustic-based and velvet-vocaled, sincere but never strained, pretty and bittersweet."
