If you were to listen to a single solitary song from New Jersey (by way of Staten Island) quartet Cymbals Eat Guitars, you'd be left bewildered. The beauty of Cymbals Eat Guitars lies in their completed work, with each album—this year's Lenses Alien and 2009's Why There Are Mountains—being a wonderfully assembled summary of its respective parts. Yet the band has no definitive single, no quaint three-minute representation of what makes their complex arrangements and the speak/sung lyrics of Joseph D'Agostino so appealing. This band requires both patience and faith, two elements seldom associated with our modern methods of musical hoarding. Those looking for a quick rock-and-roll fix will be left unfulfilled, but those willing to devote some time will be rewarded with a texturally rich sound that is most definitely worth the wait.
