Proximity Effect songs Product Information
Proximity Effect album for sale by Nada Surf was released Aug 29, 2000 on the Barsuk label. After scoring the hit "Popular" off its successful 1996 debut record, HIGH/LOW, Nada Surf ran into the hardest of brick walls. While THE PROXIMITY EFFECT built on the fiery, jagged indie power pop of its predecessor, life after a novelty hit can be rough. Their major label, unsure how to market the record, decided not to release it, but also refused to relinquish the masters to the band. Proximity Effect CD music contains a single disc with 14 songs. ...See Full Description

The best and most pure rock band from the last 10 year.... The new album 'Let go' is the best one to date!!
By a reviewer (Holland)
||Not as "popular", but much better!|
OK, I'm sure everyone and their dog bought "High/Low" so they could all have the "alterna-rock" smash hit "Popular" playing on their stereo, but there's so much more to Nada Surf than that. High/Low was a great album, but "The Proximity Effect" is so much better. Nada Surf are an amazing "power-pop" trio, with great songs and even better lyrics. They're a band that really engages the listener; it makes you think. It's one of my ten favorite albums of all time and Nada Surf are one of the best bands to come out of America in a long time. Highlights include Amateur, 80 Windows, Disposession, Firecracker...it's all great! Do you like Jimmy Eat World or "Pinkerton" by Weezer? Buy this...it's better!

Rather excellent, on the whole, though the first three tracks are clearly the most stellar. I still can't figure out what the fourth one is doing there, though. It not only goes nowhere, and is so pathetically preachy as to be laughable, but it is really at odds stylistically with much else. M'thinks that someone up there in 'sensitive guy-in-a-band'-land is taking themselves just a bit too seriously. I've seen this band in concert and found them extremely musical, easily as much so as the best stuff to be heard here. Why, then, they didn't pull off something as consistently compelling on this CD is a mystery to me.

The Proximity Effect is the kind of album that cannot be faulted..Perhaps in a couple of songs namely Bacardi and Dispossession it suffers momentary lapses, the album manages to pull out 4 classics [most albums are normally hard-pushed to have 2 classics] - namely, the opening three tracks, Hyperspace, Amateur, and 80 windows, along with The Voices. The other songs are also stand outs shwoing Nada Surf to be meaningful, without being overly sensitive. I may indeed be 17 years of age, but thankfully, Nada Surf dont produce songs that 'kids' will be attracted to. As a percentage....Nada Surf get 98%.
