Rainer Maria - Long Knives Drawn download mp3 album
If nothing else, with the release of Long Knives Drawn, Rainer Maria have shown everyone one thing: nine is their magic number. Four LPs under their belts and four albums with exactly nine songs. Not too typical, but this trio has hardly ever been conventional. One look at their set-up shows that to be true. There are few bands who have been as successful in the indie rock scene who have a female singer and aren't associated with the riot grrl movement. Nevertheless, Long Knives Drawn finds the band continuing where A Better Version Of Me left off.

Exclusive Prime pricing. Oh, you're wicked, You look so wicked!" With this declaration of independence in the album's opening track, "Mystery and Misery," Rainer Maria has been reborn. No more meandering songs about the contents of Lincoln's pockets. No more fake love songs. Long Knives Drawn" is 9 songs and 35 and a half minutes of some of the most brutally honest and intensely emotional music you will hear in 2003. The previously mentioned opener, "Mystery and Misery" continues the band's tradition of having absolutely killer opening tracks.
Long Knives Drawn" is 9 songs and 35 and a half minutes of some of the most brutally honest and intensely emotional music you will hear in 2003. Coming up second is "Long Knives," quite possibly the most sinister song the band's ever written musically. The album continues with "The Awful Truth Of Loving," a relapse into the band's more sweetly melodic sound contained on their "Look Now, Look Again" LP. Even though it sounds familiar, Caithlin's vocals make the song into what it is - her voice has matured greatly since 2001's "A Better Version Of M. Continuing at a medium pace is "The Imperatives," powered by drummer Bill's propulsive drumming and a mixture of Kyle and Caithlin's dissonant guitar and bass parts.
