Untitled #23 est le nouvel album des Australiens THE CHURCH, devenus cultes avec leur single 'Under The Milky Way' en 1988. Ce nouvel opus est un voyage sombre, envoûtant, exstatique et psychédélique en 10 titres marquants d'émotion, et installe définitivement THE CHURCH comme des novateurs dans le pop/rock indé et psychédélique.

Untitled # 23's two most immediately infectious songs are "Pangaea" and "Happenstance." If the music industry had justice and equality "Pangaea" and "Happenstance" would be universally heralded as two great singles for progressive rock radio stations. Still another highlight of this intoxicating CD is the luminous and thought provoking "Sunken Sun". The momentous and tremendous closing song "Operetta" is one of the most beautiful, reflective and yearning songs ever recorded by any band.
In short "Untitled # 23" is a must purchase for all music fans. Other spectacular Church CD's that are imperative to own include "Forget Yourself." "After Everything Now This," "Hologram of Baal", "Uninvited Like The Clouds'" "Starfish" and "Priest=Aura". The Church are a uniquely amazing and incomparable band and there will never be another band like them.
Untitled #23 is a masterpiece. It is without a doubt one of their best and most consistent records in their entire canon. I have been following this band for 17 years now and have never seen such a positively reviewed cd by critics and fans alike.
I think the reason for this praise is the overall consistency of the record and its tightness. There are only 10 tracks and the length is 50 minutes, short by Church standards. There is also such a flow to the tracks and a wide range of textures/emotions: Fierce (Deadman's Hand), Sad (On Angel Street), Menace (Anchorage), Beauty (Sunken Sun), Love (Operetta), and of course Mysterious (Happenstance).
If you are an old Church fan looking to check out an old friend or a new fan, looking into new music that will move you, not bore you, do yourself a favor and buy this now. You will not regret it.
As other reviewers have correctly pointed out, songs like Pangaea, with its gorgeous vocal intertwinings, Dead Man's Hand with it's driving rhythm and perfectly appropriate 'can barely open his mouth' vocals, the epic Happenstance, filled with moments of calm turned to gripping edge and emotion, and of course the closer Operetta with it's safe and lush harmonies, like coming home, are instantly distinguishable as the embodiment of all that the Church have evolved to. They bring forth all the aspects that are best about the Church, the guitars, the vocal effects, the seemingly insignificance of certain words in songs ("Such a charmer") yet play over and over with such fondness in your mind when not listening.
But I think what is getting more notice, and rightfully so, are some of the risks played out in this release. Take a song like On Angel Street. Whose brilliant idea was it to use use what sounds like a car alarm as the primary rhythm piece? It sounds crazy to desrcibe it, but when you hear it, you will see how amazing it works. With Knopfleresque (circa Planet of New Orleans) guitar sound in combination with that 'car alarm' rhythm, it gives a sense of urgency and seediness to the song, and the lyrics are just plain heartbreaking. IMHO Kilbey has always been at his best when writing about the things he knows about, and this just proves it.
Every song is unique, distinct, and again the risks taken on this release come through in the instrumentation as well as the lyrics. Just lisen to the woodwind sound of Lunar and its beautiful closing instrumental. Who else but the Church would have added that? Listen to the dichotomous lyric of Ankorage? The vocal resurection of Lou Reed on Space Savior. Every song takes a new and interesting turn.
Anyone who knows the Church knows they have the chops to make 'the greatest' album, but I'm not sure everyone knew they would take the risks to do it. I think they went out on a limb on this release, and I don't think they landed on their feet at all, I think they SOARED. On Untitled #23 the brilliance just shines.
MAKE SURE you also pick up the Pangaea E.P. with the incredible "So Love May Find Us", a song worth the price alone.
So how good is Untitled #23? That it is even being mentioned by fans and critics as ONE of their best, coming some 29 or so years into a career in show biz, is astonishing. Then again, for those who have followed them faithfully over the years, it's really not so astonishing. Everything they've done this decade has been amazing. How many think Radiohead or even U2 will last for 23 albums, and if so, how good do you think those albums will be? I saw the Church in Chicago a week ago. They are still fierce beyond words. If you want to find the fountain of youth, find out what turns these cats on and go out and get you some of it.
To the initiated this collection of new songs will somehow be a more exciting trip given the subtle departures or risks the band has taken while those unfamiliar to The Church can take the opportunity to hear what "drone rock" set out to be back in the mid to late 1960's and 1970's. "Ok, just a little pin prick..." Remember what that made you feel back in the day? Kilbey and Co. can offer you that feeling again in 2009.
Though it is easy to completely submerged yourself into this entire record I do want to single out one song inparticular, Anchorage. It's hard to describe but I can't get it out of my head. An absolutely amazing recording, poem, lyricscape whatever you'd like to call it.
Hopefully a few folks will stumble upon Untitled #23 and maybe rock music can live another day but then again Green Day has hit the shelves and
it's always tough to pass up whiney pseudo-punks with eye-liner and a Bush fetish.
