Smile Smile “Truth on Tape”

The musicianship and harmonies are what make this tick. It’s a great record for me because I can never make out lyrics. On occasion I did, such as on “Somebody Else,” and I was not impressed. I just want to hear pretty things, and the title track does this nicely. The woman half of the duo almost sounds like Tanya Donelly on this one. More, please.
“Move Along Folks…” is another winner. The best tracks, though, are when they sing together. Harmony rules the roost on “Days Go By.” Songs such as those are painfully too short.
“Goodbye Caroline” also has great musical accompaniment and would sound great live. It’s a stripped-down song that still provides a lot of layering. It must be how they make that gum taste so good even when it has no sugar in it.
