Oceans Will Rise is the third and final album by Montreal indie rock band the Stills, released August 19, 2008. In late 2007, Toronto-based record label Arts & Crafts signed the band to a worldwide recording deal. Once again working with producer Gus Van Go, the group felt, according to vocalist Tim Fletcher, "a raw energy of inspiration" during the new album's recording efforts that was absent in previous sessions
Not a great sounding pressing, and my least favourite Stills album. Still glad to complete my collection. Reply Notify me Helpful.
Oceans Will Rise is the third album by The Stills, and it's a bit of a corker. The Stills, who have been going for 8 years, are no fresh faced fivesome from the burgeoning Cana-dicana scene. Nope, they're more the seasoned veterans, and with Oceans Will Rise, it shows. The Stills have managed to create an alternative rock vibe that at times can be stadium rock big, and at other times sounding like music more suited to sweaty, intimate venues

Nothing else on Oceans Will Rise matches that sort of grandeur, but the band still sounds energized and confident throughout these 12 tracks. Appropriately, this is the first time the Stills have returned with their lineup intact - co-founder Greg Paquet quit in 2005 to finish college, setting off a chain of events that included the addition of drummer Julien Blais and keyboardist Liam O'Neil and the promotion of former drummer Dave Hamelin, who took up Paquet's vacant spot on lead guitar.

Global warming means Oceans Will Rise, but the Stills navigate DayGlo 1980s art-pop like captains of our water world. The Montreal quintet's 2003 debut, Logic Will Break Your Heart, cast the Cure's overripe melancholy in New Wave's steely melodrama before critical success burned the band's original incarnation to the ground. Quite improbably, Without Feathers rose from the ashes three years later, a phoenix in an aviary of pigeons. Ashes in gasoline" coda the jungle buzz of "Snakecharming the Masses" as more sweet revenge for the Stills. Dinosaurs," from which the album takes its name, cascades minor chords, major desire, and mainlining hooks. Production seals it all as taut and as giving as speaker mesh. No frills rockers such as "Eastern Europe" and the leaner "Rooibos/Palm Wine Drinkard" careen as crowd-pleasers. Oceans Will Rise, but the Stills built a raft.
