The three-guitar assault that Airlines unleashed on their first Quixotic single
"Steady Goes" is honed to an even sharper edge on their newest release. The
song may be `Talking About Talking (About Talking About Talking...)', but they
definitely let their fingers do the walking on this high-speed rave-up.
Engineered by: Chad Swanberg
Produced by: Airlines with Chad Swanberg
flip `10,000 Days' shows the band in a new light, and this bittersweet hymn,
drenched in melody, has been a standout in the band's live shows.
Chairs Missing (#mr. suit October 1993, Scott Munroe)
"Why am I
reminded of Crispy Ambulance meeting Velocity Girl halfway when I hear this
band? Two very brooding songs. Sort of what you'd hear in your head if you
were intensely reading a textbook at the New York Public Library. How's that
for a comparison?"
Second Skin (#6 Winter 1994, Alyssa Isenstein)
"Another fine single
by Airlines. I've decided that Airlines would be a great band to write theme
songs for merry-go-rounds... If this was a just world, Airlines would be a lot
bigger than they are because they have released several top-notch singles, and
this one is the best yet."
ND (#18 Spring 1994, Daniel Plunkett)
"`Talking' is fairly direct
pop riff and `10,000 Days' is a charmer which seems to dance around some old Eno
song in my head. Quite nice and worth checking out for you that like
intelligent and thoughful guitar pop."
