The #10 Best Album On The Tulip Frenzy 2013 Top Ten List ™ Is Magic Trick’s “River Of Souls”

No surprise here, since we broadly hinted last week that they would make it.  But as we said then, Magic Trick is a magic band, and this was a gorgeous album we intend on playing for a long time to come, especially when melded with last year’s Ruler of the Night.

How gorgeous was it, you ask?

Here’s what we said only last week:

“This is an album that is at once so tastefully tuneful, so catchy and pretty, sweet and bright that we are already making up the seating charts for Holiday parties in the weeks ahead — just so we can play it at dinner!   The fire crackling, suckling spam coming from the roti, the claret decorked — oh, the festivities this brilliant disk will get going.  It’s going to be a helluva warm’n’toasty finish to 2013, now that said bright platter’s plopped on the old victrola.  Download “Salvation” and your ears will respond like you’ve just filled them with melted chocolate that’s been left to cool in the warm breeze of a Baja California night.  One song later, when the gorgeous “Bridge of Gold” comes on, you’ll find yourself shushing loved ones while saying not a word.  That’s right, you won’t have to tell them what to listen for.  They’ll just start nodding their heads to the beat, and will thank you for allowing them to listen.”
