The Polyphonic Spree – Two Thousand Places (CD Review)

The Polyphonic Spree have returned with another uplifting, energising, sun-filled and emotional single. ‘Two Thousand Places’, taken from their latest album ‘Together We’re Heavy’, is an example of the heights that this band can take you too. Building from Tim’s introductory vocals to a soaring set of crescendos as the other twenty members of the band weigh in with their unique blend of prog rock, gospel, sixties folk and evangelical glee.

As well as the fabulous A-side we have a version of the live favourite, and curious odyssey in itself, ‘The Best Part’ before finishing off with a faithful and orchestral version of John and Yoko’s ‘Happy Christmas (War Is Over)’ that applies the Spree treatment to this seasonal classic and delivers a joyous payoff to this disk.
