As has been noted extensively in other reviews, this album is somewhat of a departure from the path they had previously been on, which had more of a raucous, rough-hewn 80's new wave edge to it. This is the laid back, seeking-refuge-from-the-madness-of-the-city-in-a-remote-country-estate album. You might call it their Exile On Mainstreet, except that they seemingly skipped releasing a Beggar's Banquet or Sticky Fingers of their own to set up the impending need for sanctuary.
Prior to this, I think their signature song might have been In The Morning (In The Evening), Good Lovin' or perhaps Making Breakfast. It seemed like they were on the way to delivering something for the ages along those lines when this unexpected diversion took place.
Down In Heaven is an immediately accessible album. You can play it all the way through without skipping around much. The tracks you do skip over at first eventually grow on you too, the way it is with all good rock albums.
My favorites are Holding Roses, Cold Lips and Keep It Together. They're tight with slick vocal harmonies, but there's still enough edginess to keep it a rock and roll album, as opposed to a pop album. It seems to be a shot at a wider audience perhaps than their older material, which was a bit hipster-centric.
If there's a criticism I have of Down in Heaven, it's that it appears that Twin Peaks have absolutely mastered the swaggering, drawling delivery, but still have yet to really craft a coherent message. That's not much to complain about, but it might strike you as a bit out of place to hear such a bittersweet, world-weary perspective from a bunch of people who look at lot closer to age 20 than to age 30, and are probably having the time of their lives touring the world (they're great live) and playing music. Then again, that's rock and roll in a nutshell.
I still hope that they have something closer to Making Breakfast left in the tank for future releases though, and I'll be looking forward to hearing it.
