Mercury Rev - The Secret Migration album FLAC

All songs written by Mercury Rev. "Secret for a Song" – 4:01. Across Yer Ocean" – 3:20.

The Secret Migration" is a concept album with psychadelic themes on Mother Nature. You can easily listen to the album without much concern for the concept though. I think the album has got a very british sound which is a bit unusual for an American bands but Mercury Rev has always had a very obvious Beatles influence in their music (at least from "See You On The Other Side (1995)" onwards). So it�s really not that strange if they sound a bit British

The Secret Migration is the sixth album by Mercury Rev, released on January 24, 2005 in the UK (and a day later in the US). The Secret Migration Q&A. More Mercury Rev albums.

Mercury Rev’s sixth album Secret Migration is a high flying psychedelic concept record filled with paeans to Mother Nature. Singer Jonathan Donahue has never been so in touch with his inner hobbit as he is here.

Long before the sixth album by Mercury Rev is out of the CD case, you start to fear the worst. The problem lies with the cover picture: an airbrushed image of a moth with eyeballs staring out of its wings, a heavy-lidded pixie's face instead of a body and a scroll bearing Latin text wafting around its antenna. It makes The Secret Migration look like something you might have found in a student bedsit around the time of the three-day week, nestling between Emerson Lake and Palmer's Brain Salad Surgery and something unspeakable by Jethro Tull.

Like 'Deserter Songs' and 'All Is Dream' before, 'The Secret Migration' is a compelling, visual album.
