Afraid of Heights

By Rhia Perkins

Reviewing the Brown Eyed Susans’ Afraid of Heights is defining the indefinable. This album has everything: Beatles-worthy harmonies, crunchy guitars, foot-tapping beats, soulful keyboards, baffling 20-something angst-filled lyrics, strange samples and sound effects, and infectious melodies. It’s hard to say exactly what this album sounds like, as the Susans seem to have borrowed from the best of the last five decades of music to put together their unique but familiar sound.

From the feel-good technicolour pop sound of "Little Monkey Friend," to the lush symphonics of "Suitcase Whore," Afraid of Heights is just good listening.
