The Love Language, 'Libraries' (Merge)

8
Libraries
Critical Mass
Label: Merge

by David Menconi

"I want you to beware of me 'cause I've got a big heart to feed," Stuart McLamb croons on the Love Language's stunning second album. And he's not kidding. Libraries seems huge, a cathedral of the grandiose emotional desperation that Phil Spector and Brian Wilson once framed so dramatically. McLamb and producer BJ Burton have an unerring feel for classic pop arrangements, evoking a landscape that's a cross between Swingin' London and the ambient galaxy where doo-wop went to die, with McLamb's epic wail as your guide to the cosmos of romantic trauma.
