The Wrens - The Meadowlands download album

The Meadowlands is the third studio album by American indie rock band the Wrens, released by Absolutely Kosher Records on September 9, 2003, and in the UK and Europe two years later on September 19, 2005 by LO-MAX Records. Recording of the album originally began in January 1999, but writer's block and a loss of faith in the tracks they were recording meant the band took four years to complete the album, with many songs being rewritten or scrapped as recording proceeded.

After seven years of waiting, four years of struggling in the studio and a change of label, The Wrens released their third album The Meadowlands, to universal acclaim (except for from Q). The title derives from the New Jersey Meadowlands, a protected environment that stretches all the way to Newark Bay. The Meadowlands Q&A. Producers Charles Bissell & The Wrens. Bass, Vocals Kevin Whelan. Drums Jerry MacDonald.

The Wrens' third album, The Meadowlands, is a sprawling, shifting affair, perhaps reflecting the fact that it took four years to create.

What the album cover and song titles do not convey however, is how perfectly the themes of Meadowlands are pulled off, whether this is demonstrated through Bissell’s agonized lyricism or the reverb-laden guitars. The Wrens’ third release takes us to a place far-removed from the carefree demeanor of youth and even the not-so significant adolescent years; a period at which life becomes a bitter pill to swallow and little can be done to rectify the situation.

But as long ago as all of that was for me, for The Wrens, it's been an eternity. I also hadn't known that, at the height of their 1996 .
