The first album was praised by The Time Magazine Asia as "One of Five Asian Albums Worth Buying", and Rolling Stone Indonesia magazine ranked it the 40th in "150 Greatest Indonesian Albums of All Time". The fifth single, "No Fruits for Today", also ranked as one of "150 Greatest Indonesian Songs of All Time".
While preparing their materials for their second album, they contributed to four original soundtrack albums: "Berbagi Suami" (Love for Share); "Kala" (Dead Time); Quickie Express; "Perempuan Punya Cerita" (Chants of Lotus), one of which became a hit single, "Pergi Tanpa Pesan", a reworking of an Indonesian classic from the late 1950s.
In April 2008, three years after the release of their debut, they released their second album entitled Ports of Lima (Aksara Records - 2008). The Rolling Stone Indonesia voted it as Best Album of 2008 (number one) by the Rolling Stone Indonesia magazine.
SORE is a Jakarta-based indie band whose musical eclecticism makes a simple comparison almost impossible. Imagine the Beatles grew up in the Pacific, listening to the music of Steely Dan, Morrissey, Interpol, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and some obscure Indonesiana of the 1970's. Their music is a curious blend of traditional pop song-writings and mood explorations, ranging from the calmest whisper to the Wagnerian exuberance of the horn sections and fuzz guitars.
