I listen to the Cranes, My mind fly in the sky and now I remain without gravity.
Adoration is the song of my life and when I took part to the radio transmission
on Radiorai with my favourite playlist I began with this song.
I saw Cranes for 4 times in live concerts and every time I was dazzled by the
wonderful voice of Alison.

" 'Til the Stars Burn Out. . ."

I fell in love listening to Cranes. Their music resonates with it, and the beauty is inescapable. If music is the forum for intimate expression, then we are indeed blessed to be smitten with such beauty and emotion.

no he escuchado el nuevo album, tengo el doble que es Gris y me encanta, Los Cranes son de lo mejor que puede existir me ha llevado por lugares inimaginables del dolor pero aun asi que mejor que ir acompaņado de su musica, dentro del la soledad y la tristeza en que me encuentro en este momento de mi vida.

espero volverlos a ver por Mexico

un saludo desde Mexico

The Cranes are by far the most talented band around.
I didn't get a chance to see them last year in Atlanta, but I'm hoping they will come to Florida soon.Other bands I like are Shallow, Depeche Mode, The Cure and Curve.
If anyone is into theses bands too, I'd love to hear from you. E-mail me at

I first got into the Cranes when I saw them support the Cure in November '92. Despite being a massive Cure fan at the time, I thought the Cranes were the better band. They had such a powerful and unusual sound - quite unlike anything else I've ever heard. The next day I bought 'Wings of Joy' and became an enthusiast. Somehow I've managed to miss just about every gig they've done in Scotland since then, due to being perpetually impoverished. Hope they come back soon...

"They've come this far, how beautiful they are"

My friend introduced me to LOVED and I, well, loved it. I went out and bought Population Four and Forever. The Cranes are smashing!!!!!

Well, I first heard them when a friend let me borrow Wings of Joy. What can I say,it was wonderful. Then I started buying their albums, and fell enchanted in the depths. Its quite hard to find anything here in Colorado, and my collection is rather small. Hopefully, you great people can help me out there. I try to encourage people to listen to the Cranes, but I begin to feel that it is often to artistic for them. I must say their not the most talented from a technical aspect, but far superior on an artistic level. I think the big problem for a lot of people is that their music hits them like many of the modern artist (painters) who where ahead of their time. Perhaps this is the first time in a long while that anyone has created a new step or dirction in music that couldn't be duplicated by the masses. I think that though Cranes are not recieving the recognition they deserve now, that in the future they will be respect as one the great bands of this time.

Hello. I first heard the Cranes when one of my friends taped a video off the chart show
that he thought was good, and it was Tomorrows Tears. I thought it was great, got the EP
and then Wings of Joy, and that was it really. They are one of my favourite bands and the
gig I watched in 1992 at King Tuts in Glasgow was one of the best that I've been ever seen.
It was such a good atmosphere. Before hand, I was delighted to see them open for the Cure
at the Playhouse in Edinburgh as I had no idea that they would be playing. Anyway, I've
only seen them thrice, and I have just found out that they don't have a record deal, which
I hope can change in the future. It's pretty bad that the Cranes havent had more coverage,
as I'm convinved that a lot of people would like them if only they knew of their existence.
They got a fair bit for supporting the Cure, but that seemed to fizzle out for some reason.
Anyway, to finish off a boring bit of prose, I'll say that I like all their albums, but my
favourite one varies from time to time. Forever perhaps?

I first heard Cranes back in '91, I think it was. We got MTV some time just before X-mas
and there was a live performance by them on 120 Minutes. It was great, especially Starblood.
Then I saw them with the Cure in '92, and since then they've been my favourite band. I love
Alison's voice, and find the music hacks'different descriptions of it very amusing! If you have
a funny description of Alison's voice, don't hesitate to mail me!

It would be foolish for any record labe to reject the Cranes.
They are, by far, one of the most talented bands ever.

But it seems that all bands who have visions do not receive the recognition they deserve.

I first heard The Cranes when they were on the "Wish" Tour with The Cure. Their music blew me away. To me their music is very passionate and very touching. They're one of the only bands that I can close my eyes while listening to their songs and forget where I'm at.

i heard about the cranes through robert smith. he advised that if no one has heard of the cranes that they should definitly look for their albums. I'm a bit embarrased to say that I haven't been a Cranes fan for long only becuase thier albums are difficult to find here in colorado, so my first album was "forever." i think the cranes are completely brilliant. i've just entered college and i always play "forever" because the album makes me comfortable and reminds me of the summer when i bought it. i have a lot of the earlier crane albums but i don't have population 4. the cranes are about good music close to the heart and they always bring a smile to my face. here's hoping that the cranes make music for a long time.

I heard Cranes for the first time when I was 15 and now I am 20. I instantly loved they're music and the lovely mesmerizing voice of Alison. I hope they make more beautiful music in the years to come.....

I first heard cranes right when Loved came out..."shining road" was on a promo
disk that I came across and it was the coolest thing I'd ever heard. Still is!
Alison is absolutely adorable, I've been in love ever since! Wish they would
play in Edmonton, or even close, cos I'd die to see them live...

Simply I collect live tapes and in 1991 I swa that my pals were collecting Cranes concerts in a huge way like it was happening for The Cure... so I got curious and I had a live tape with their John Peel Session. Listening Starblood I decided they were great and I bought their album... so sad and Joy Division bass-style and romantic... for the first time in a long time I felt emotions listening to music...
And I hope they will play again in Roma and that they play again "Give" in their gigs.
Ciao to all Cranes fans and to the guys of Cranes, best band ever

Los escuche por primera vez en Monterrey, junto con the cure ; quede impactado y desmotivado por haber encontrado tan rapido todo lo que buscaba en la musica.

Ahora disfruto cada cancion de manera muy diferente a la primera vez que la escuche y descubro nuevos detalles y sentimientos, con lo que me doy cuenta que toda mi vida tendre a los CRANES en mi cabeza.

Espero que toda persona exigente en su gusto musical, se sienta tan satisfecho y complacido como lo estoy yo por haber encontrado esta banda.

i first heard of the cranes on in '94 .. from there i ran to my favorite local CD shop and bought "loved" .. actually listening to them right now .. that's why i decided to see if there was, indeed, a site on the WWW devoted to the cranes .. good job on the creativity!!

I first heard the Cranes when they opened for The Cure in 92. And to this day,
they are the first band that completely awed me at first sight. It was so
different from anything I had ever heard before. So dramatic....Every song,
especially Wings of Joy, carries you to an emotional peak...orgasmic...
I think that the Cranes are severely underrated, but sadly due to availability.
It seems like they were easier to find a few years back, because the first time I
bought Wings of Joy I found it right away. Then it was stolen, and it took me
2 years to find it was a long 8 weeks of waiting on a special order.
The biggest thing for me is that you didn't change your sound to get more play,
you stuck with your heart, & what would you rather have? Twenty devoted fans or
ten million who didn't give a shit? GET TO TAMPA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cranes get lots of club play here, mainly due to me, but hey; I've got to do my
part. I would never want to deprive anyone of the magic that is the Cranes.

I saw them with the Cure in 92 in Landover Maryland. I haven't got the chance to see them again, yet for reasons beyond my control.I have gotten a lot of my friends into the Cranes, and then they give me big hugs. The cranes defineatly stand out musically. You never know what to expect from them. i love it. i think they should be on the buffy the vampire slayer soundtrack as they are looking for bands to be on it. Go to
i also think they could look at Cleopatra records for American distribution. Please come back to Philly! ALISON >>YOUR VOICE ROCKS!

Ok...Iīve been listening to the Cranes ever since I listened to Watersong in a compilation tape made by a rather goth friend. Of course that was years ago.
I got to see them open for the Cure in Monterrey and loved them. My best friend was next to me. He had some breathing problems because of the heat and the sweat of all the people around us; but we still wanted to remain in the third row. Eventually I had to carry him to the back of the arena, but that was only after the Cranes finished their set.
It took us half the Cure show to wrestle our way back to the front rows.
Some years later I saw them in a ghastly place in Mexico City named the P.H. or something of the sort. The band played great, but I was just recovering from a surgery in my leg and couldnīt jump properly. After the show we met the band. So shocked were we by the music we had just heard that all my mates were lost for words. I donīt exactly remember whatever it is I said, but as luck would have it, neither would the band a couple of years later (and I suppose that was good, for I tend to say odd things when under pressure).
So, the last time the band played in Mexico City, our roadie worked with them and, as far as I know, made sure that all their needs were satisfied. Manu and I got horribly pissed in a posh bar very close to the hotel they were staying at and we went to see them off at the airport a week later.
Havenīt heard anything from them ever since, but my opinion is the same: brilliant music, brilliant lads, Alison and Jim must have a faerie somewhere in their ancestry.
There is not a good reason not to love them. Cheers!

Hello there. I think it's very important to try and remember that it's not up to anyone but the band themselves to
let people know they're looking for a label (if they are, what they wante etc etc). I'm sure that everyone would love to help out but let's not speak on their behalf.
Just my two cents.
