The Polyphonic Spree is a unique band with 20 members, most of them in the choir section. Singer and keyboard player Tim DeLaughter dreamed up a choral symphonic rock band and lo and behold: it works. The Fragile Army takes you back to the seventies when big sounds made it big. DeLaughter isn't much of a singer, think of Peter Gabriel suffering from a nasty cold, but combined with the lush arrangements The Fragile Army is an over-the-top album made by an expanded A-Team. A bit of advice from the band: "for an optimum listening experience, please load the album into your digital media player as 1 complete track."
The limited edition comes with a DVD containing a making of documentary Raise Your Ears and Hold on To Your Heart and the video for the title track.
