From German Label Kalinkaland:

For years, Idaho have stood for a completely unique kind of guitar music, the kind that never goes out of fashion or passes its sell-by date. Starting in the wake of what was then Slo-Core, Idaho have since grown and changed into real Pop-strategists, creating magical yet unassuming songs somewhere between atmosphere and melody. Along the way, they collect rave reviews, from Melody Maker ("Astonishing and timeless"), Spex ("melancholic guitar music, roaming into unbelievable distances"), to Libération, who in 2000 called Hearts of Palm one of the top five records of the year. Musical guests, from Hole/Smashing Pumpkins member Melissa auf der Maur to REM/Beck drummer Joey Waronker, come and go, but Co-founder Jeff Martin - whose melancholic, whispering voice and yearning lyrics are at the heart of Idaho's elegance and courage - remains the constant.

Between friends: it's obvious that with Vieux Carré, Idaho have gained for themselves gallery seats in the theatre of Rock. Jeff Martin shapes the sound as a sleepwalking shiver, challenging singer, and with spherical, yet sharp-edged electric as well as acoustic guitars. The pieces seem like torn whisps of clouds in the sky, somewhere between David Sylvain and Kurt Cobain, between bittersweet ballads ("Before you go") and passionate Indie-Rock ("Flat Top"). Try copying that. Vieux Carré is an album that makes a statement: intensive and entrancingly beautiful. A gateway drug, a moment of life in real life. This is the stuff that makes us better people...

I only stumbled on Idaho over the past several months and I have been slowly building my Idaho CD Collection. The gritty singing and song writing totally floored me. The piano and ambient sounds give Idaho's music a mystic longing feel. Listen on head phones to really experience Idaho and this greatest hits to date CD is where to start.
