      Too melancholy for me

      Orange Rhyming Dictionary was the 1998 debut album by the American band Jets to Brazil, many of the tracks - take "I Typed for Miles" (a track about writer's clock) have an acoustic feel to it that sounds like the slow parts of Nirvana songs. The vocals which have a sense of sadness to them soon seem to wear thin after a few tracks as we see the band for what they are - bloody depressing!

      The songs are well written with the lyrics often being emotional but I can' t personally be doing with too much negativity and find it all a bit whiney. My favourite track of the album is undoubtedly Lemon Yellow Black which whilst far from outstanding sounds a little ahead of it's time for its date of release and is the kind of thing that has been popular over the last few years. The chorus and the guitar wall sound is catchy and energetic enough to liven up the album for a while.

      Had this album been released in the last couple of years, I have no doubt it would have done quite well. For me it is too melancholy, I could probably manage a couple of songs if they were split up with some jolly numbers but it's the amount of depressive songs one after another that makes me fairly sure that I won't be buying any more of this band's discography!

      1. "Crown of the Valley" - 4:55
      2. "Morning New Disease" - 4:16
      3. "Resistance Is Futile" - 3:00
      4. "Starry Configurations" - 4:03
      5. "Chinatown" - 5:35
      6. "Sea Anemone" - 5:20
      7. "Lemon Yellow Black" - 4:02
      8. "Conrad" - 4:58
      9. "King Medicine" - 5:42
      10. "I Typed for Miles" - 5:33
      11. "Sweet Avenue" - 5:16
