Potomac Accord's In One-Hundred Years the Prize Will Be
Forgotten is a pop album. It's also an indie album.
But it isn't an indie pop album at all.
No, for this disc shies away from virtually every one of the
ancient indie pop stigmas. It's comprised of six piano-driven,
long epics, each one brimming with melody and elegance. No indie
pop happiness/chirpiness, no indie pop brevity, and no real indie pop
melody. It's very much like a L'altra album, except more
That said, this album is destined to be enjoyed by many
people. Despite its relative obscurity and lack of publicity,
those whose hands it falls into will likely be pleased. The majority of the songs are
prettily smooth and
infectious, save for a few parts ("The Empty Road" is a bit
long and dull), and the album works well as a whole.
Recommended for late night, cozy listening.
