Ivan & Alyosha - All the Times We Had (2013) [FLAC] Released: 2013 Duration: 42:55 Genre: Pop/Rock Style: Alternative, Indie Rock Codec: FLAC Bit Rate: ~ 900 kbps Bits Per Sample: 16 Sample Rate: 44,100 Hz 01 Be Your Man 02 Fathers Be Kind 03 Easy to Love 04 Running for Cover 05 The Fold 06 On My Way 07 Don't Wanna Die Anymore 08 God or Man 09 All the Times We Had 10 Falling 11 Who Are You Although the name Ivan & Alyosha may make it seem like these guys are some sort of Russian folk duo, Ivan & Alyosha is actually a four-piece band out of Seattle (the name honors a pair of characters from Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamazov) specializing in a kind of Beatlesque folk-pop that mixes wonderful melodies with thoughtful, intelligent lyrics and gorgeous four-part vocal harmonies. All the Times We Had is the group's debut album, although they released a series of EPs prior to it, and it signals the arrival of a delightful band that, one hopes, will only get better, although it's hard to ask for more than what this album already delivers. The songs here are simply stunning, with melodies to die for, and aside from a couple of songs that try a bit too hard to take on the troubles of the universe, there isn't a serious misstep anywhere in this set. The opener, "Be Your Man," is a timeless, easygoing masterpiece, while "Easy to Love" sounds like it could be a hit in any language. "The Fold" is beautiful and uplifting, while the set closer, "Who Are You," is jaw-dropping perfect, with a chorus that soars like the angels singing. At times sounding like the Beatles, Teenage Fanclub, Harry Nilsson, Fleet Foxes, Big Star, and the Beach Boys all tossed in a blender, Ivan & Alyosha's All the Times We Had marks the arrival of a great band fully formed.
