Would it be biased of me to write about something on my own record label? Would I be able to constructively critque this with out any bias? Would it be bias of me if I were to say that This Is Ivy League’s debut full-length is going to be on of the best pop records of 2008? Regardless, I am expressing my confidence that if anyone were to here this record, they would not be able to deny that it is a solid record through and through. It is quite rare that an artist, music, band and in this case a duo produce an album where the ear doesn’t tell his finger to go “skip.”
This record has been in the making for quite some time. With a hiatus due to some career moves and hand shakes, their debut full-length and highly regarded debut EP SINGLE for that lovely tune they called “London Bridges” had some time in between. But that time did not go to waste. In that time they culminated their songs to transform them into polished and mature pop songs. Their debut doesn’t sound like some second class debut.
