Canada's finest, Secret & Whisper, are back at it, with their follow up to 2008's Great White Whale. The band pulled out all the stops with Teenage Fantasy working with producer Jeff Schneeweis (Hawthorne Heights, Number One Gun) to craft a masterpiece that leaves you inspired and moved by their musical work. Teenage Fantasy is an album showcasing a band at its prime, pushing the status-quo of rock.

With their sophomore release, Secret and Whisper ups the ante a bit. For people who enjoyed their debut album, this one is just as good. The band has gone for a much more harsher yet still remarkably ambient sound, a slight departure from Great White Whale. This harsher sound really feels much more exciting and raw. The 12 songs (there is a hidden track.) are chalked full of poetic lyrics that blend the poetic style and modern day observations, and concepts that focus on nature and the feelings of teenagers. Teenage Fantasy is a great album full of harsh ambiance. Fans of Secret and Whisper must not pass this album up.

"Teenage Fantasy" is probably one of those releases that raises the question, "how in the world did they do it?" Thanks to Jeff of Number One Gun, the band has released one of the most heaviest albums that if Anthony Green rejoined Saosin and thought of the idea to make the band even heavier, that would be the result. It's just great. The stand-out songs are "Star Blankets," "Warrior (Southern Arrowwood)," and "Edge Of Wilderness". Highly suggest this album.
Teenage Fantasy About Whale Bones...| Posted April 03, 2010
Ah, my second most anticipated album this year is by one of my favorite rock/alt acts Secret And Whisper.
What a great group of guys, even when you get them 4 times in a row on modern warfare 2 they still have a laugh about it, they love music so much it's evident just by talking to them.
Now onto the actual album, it starts off with Youth Cats, from the beginning you get a taste of the unique style you should expect for the rest of the album.
The highlights of this album are definitely: Whale Bones(fantastic track), Blush, Warrior (Southern Arrowwood) and Bedroom Galaxy.
They have an incredibly solid sound and the production is top notch, if you are expecting a worship album look elsewhere, these guys are all about their unique lyrics and generally write about things that stick out to them in life/experiences with people and places.
A great Rock/Alt album, fans of Anberlin will love these guys most likely, if you like Saosin you will be very likely to enjoy the style.
