MIT Logarhythms - "Give Us Back Our Spyplane"

Postby mrmiller » Wed Dec 31, 2008 11:18 am

I'd like to extend a big thanks to the reviewers for their time spent on GUBOS.  We worked countless hours creating this album. It was a lot of fun for us, and I hope you enjoyed the product! I'd like to thank Ed Boyer and James Gammon publicly for their amazing work on this album, as well!

We're happy with all the comments we've received from critics and fans alike. We made many controversial production decisions with this album, and have received vastly differing opinions in many cases, which is the best we can ask for! We'd love to hear the community's thoughts.

For those who want to take a listen or purchase a copy of the album, you can head over to http://cdbaby.com/cd/mitlogarhythms or http://www.a-cappella.com/product/15163/collegiate-mens.

PS - We tracked and edited the album almost entirely ourselves in our studio on campus here in Cambridge. Keeping that in mind, it feels great to get 5s across the board for sound/production.

Awesome album- cohesive, energetic, thoughtful and well-produced.

I moved to Boston when the Logs began recording this album two summers ago. I had the opportunity to watch this album unfold from the very beginning and was lucky to see it through to the end. :) I'd like to thank the Logs for letting me sit in on tracking, asking me to be their vocal coach for the last 2 semesters, and for valuing my input on this project. They have taught me so much about the recording process, and to top it off, they are pretty much the nicest guys I've ever encountered.

Though extremely biased, I can say that this is a great album and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do! I'm looking forward to see what they come up with next! (cue Michael Miller brainstorm...)

I picked this album up on a whim and could not have been happier with the result. It's easily one of the most enjoyable a cappella albums I've ever listened to. It's been getting the repeat play treatment in my car for the past month.

My personal favorite track? Get Over It. I think one of the reviewers commented on how the syllables were distracting, but I found them to be one of my favorite parts about the song.

It was especially interesting for me to see the review for this album so close to the Pitchforks', because I got the Forks' album a couple of weeks after I'd been listening to Spyplane and I didn't like it at first because it didn't match the enjoyable (I can't really think of a better word) nature of the Logs' album. Eventually I took a break from both and when I listened to Disconcert again I really liked it as a different kind of album. That's not meant to put down the Pitchforks at all, but more as a testament to how good I thought the Spyplane was.

Anyways, definitely check this out. It's great. I downloaded mine off cdbaby (yay for instant gratification!).

Thanks for such high words of praise, Matt! I'm glad you enjoy the album so much. We put our hearts and souls and time into making it (the curse and blessing of the DIY approach) and reading your comments and hearing that you're getting such enjoyment out of the album are the best payoff we could ever hope for. Thanks!

Thanks Shannon for being awesome as always!

P.S. I'm also glad you took a second listen to "Disconcert", which, while certainly different, is a pretty great album.
