Perhaps the most outstanding thing about the Alice Sweet Alice is their seamless blend of alternative, neo-psychedelica and art-rock. The blasting electric riffs, sprawling melodies, and the whirling, sinuous guitars are all interwoven without so much as a sonic burp. At first glance, it seems like a fairly typical rock/alternative album, but upon further listening, the alluringly complicated music begins to filter itself fully into your brain. Adventurious, brooding and expressive, "First Light" is a breathtaking ride into a majestic rock world all its own. Inventive and enticing, this is a modern classic.
