Appletop are probably the least French sounding French band in the history of France. Comparisons have been made to Sebadoh, Pavement and Teenage Fanclub but the reality can be something far more clean-cut, say Deacon Blue or The Magic Numbers, especially in tracks like "Headstrong" and "Twenty Five" which open this record. The fact that Appletop have stuck these particular tunes at the top of Brave Mountains perhaps says something about the path that they eventually wish to follow. Chart glory and radio play seem like a distinct possibility.
