Paloalto came onto the scene in 2000 with their incredible self titled debut album. They return three years later, and pick up right where they left off. With a sound that could be compared to that of fellow post-alternative acts like Rubyhorse or Remy Zero, Paloalto perfectly crafts a hauntingly beautiful album with "Heroes And Villains." The opening track "The World Outside" helps set the tone for the record with its melodic tones and creative lyrics. The album then jumps into the upbeat "Fade Out/In" one of the stand out tracks on the album. Also noteworthy is the track "Throwing Stones," which is a beautifully written track that showcases this bands incredible talent. This album may not be quite as impressive as the bands self titled debut, as it capture the diversity that the band displayed on their first record, but Heroes And Villains is definitely worthy of Heroism to our ears.
