Paladiasac, this is "The Jayhawks" comment, not "Smile". The Jayhawks started as a Country-rock band in their first albums, with the perfect combination of Louris and Olson's voices (special note to Tomorrow the Green Grass. Then Olson left and we saw the most experimental "Sound of Lies" (my favourite), the mostly pop-rocking "Smile" and back to Country rock with the great "Rainy Day Music". Now, back with Olson, this band continues to bring some quality music and is still touring to remember these golden albums.

They were a bit more country-ish when they started but "smile" comes off more americana than country (what's the difference?). All the same, the album's replete with pop sensibilities which often puts a smile on this face. They're asking you to "smile when you're down and out" and keep your "chin up". They're proclaiming their love glowingly from the tallest building in "i'm gonna make you love me" (singing "i'm gonna drown your tears / we're gonna stay together for a million years". The female backing harmonies are nice-to-lovely across most songs. But there is an undercurrent of despair, from the title track to "what led me to this town" ("Such a lazy afternoon / Eight shades of gray and I can taste the rain / Oh, how high the lovely have flown / What led me to this town ") and its simple-yet-catchy chorus to "broken harpoon" ("When it seemed no matter what you gave / (When) I took my secret to my grave"). But it's tough to stay down amidst singalongs like "somewhere in ohio" ("look out joe i think the sky is fallin' / seems like all the clouds have turned to stone"), "mr. wilson"'s guardian angel and "queen of the world" (chorus "take me to the place i never go / with scented kisses made of gold / I'll place a crown upon your curls / All hail the queen of the world"), and the songs that do sound lovelorn sound so in at least a semi-optimistic way, like "a break in the clouds" ("every time that i see your face / it's like cool, cool water running down my back") or "better days" (the way he sings "too late for hope / but a dream remembered" sounds romantic) and closing with a rocking "baby baby baby".
