Boomkat Product Review:
A stunningly well-arranged example of the songwriter's art from Kansas City's Andrew Morgan, whose previous album, Misadventures In Radiology was recorded with studio time donated by Elliott Smith. You can certainly hear elements of Smith's writing and delivery in these chamber vignettes, and the ornate, almost baroque levels of instrumental complexity (strings, celeste, sleigh bells, lapsteel, harpsichord, french horn...) bring to mind Jon Brion - himself an erstwhile Elliott Smith collaborator. If there is any sticking point here (and in all fairness, there probably isn't) it would be with Morgan's hushed vocals, which resound with a gruff whisper regardless of how full-blooded and sparklingly ebullient the rest of the music might be. This breathy intonation only further compounds the Smith comparisons, but as the album progresses you soon realise that Morgan's really not trying to copy anyone, and the symphonic proportions of the album are well earned with great writing. Please Kid, Remember is almost overwhelming in its scope and accomplishment, and you can well understand how such an undertaking took five years to finish. Excellent.
