Amoeba Review

02/03/2014

Though we’re sad that Emeralds broke up, the group’s guitarist, Mark McGuire, has a gorgeous solo album out called Along the Way. As Emeralds did, McGuire borrows from the best of early New Age—think Tangerine Dream and Brian Eno, not Enya—to create wondrous guitar-and-synth soundscapes. The delayed guitars McGuire employs sound reminiscent of U2’s The Edge on pieces like “The Instinct,” while the dreamy vocals and synth choruses, and rock beats and guitars that come in partway through, put a song like “To the Macrobes (Where Do I Go?)” somewhere between Slowdive’s Pygmalion and Lotus Plaza. Highlight “For the Friendships (Along the Way)” introduces more vocals and a laptop beat to break up the reverie a bit, the results nothing short of stunning. Fans of Emeralds will be thrilled to hear what McGuire’s done here on his own, providing an immersive, relaxing and inspiring soundtrack for winding down and zoning out with Along the Way.
