Biography

It might seem odd to describe Bombay Bicycle Club as veterans given that nobody in the band is older than 24, but ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow’ is their fourth album, which is something of a landmark achievement in today’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-them climate. The Bombay Bicycle Club story is something that isn’t meant to happen any more – a band given the space ... Read more in Amazon's Bombay Bicycle Club Store

Format: Audio CD
I found much to admire in BBC's 2010 album 'Flaws' and their new release
'A Different Kind Of Fix' delivers yet another laudable compilation. The
largely acoustic ambience of 'Flaws' is substantially swept away in this
collection of twelve new compositions. There is a harder, denser more
abrasive sound in evidence here which looks back to their 2009 debut
'I Had The blues and I Shook Them Loose'. A bold and powerful next step.

Front man Jack Steadman still stands firm on the prow, face to the wind,
keeping the boat steadily on course and coasting over the towering waves.
The music is built for large venues. There is an epic quality creeping into
their writing which suits them well but the strong sense of tunefulness
which has always defined their best work remains intact. Indubitably so.

Things kick off in fine style with opening track 'How Can You Swallow So
Much Sleep'; the gentle dreamy introduction quickly giving way to a fine
driving anthem. Suren de Saram's energetic drums and the intertwining guitars
support a quasi-folksy vocal from Mr Steadman. Around and around it goes.
'Bad Timing' and the splendid 'Your Eyes' keep the pace going until the
perfectly lovely song 'Lights Out, Words Gone' brings things down a tad and
proves to be one of the band's most affecting and memorable performances.
The vocal harmonies are beautifully crafted. A song to be very proud of.
So too with 'Fracture', an echoing lament which tugs at the heartstrings.

It is to final track 'Still', however, which we must turn to hear the album's
very finest moment. A stunning and very moving arrangement for voice and
piano which shows off Mr Steadman's distinctive falsetto at its best.

This is such a fantastic album. I personally think it tops Flaws and I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose. It is pretty different to both albums, but some songs have roots from both albums and you can definitely tell it is a BBC album.

Personal highlights are the fantastic 'Your Eyes' which is a song that definitely goes back to 'I had the Blues...' but with a slightly heavier riff than older songs.
'Beggars' is a song that will be compared to songs from 'Flaws' but it is very different, combining the acoustic and electric.
My favourite song though is 'Still'. Jack Steadman's voice is simply superb in this song and his lyrics are fantastic. It is such a beautiful way to end the album and leaves you wanting more.

Ed Nash's bass lines are unusually catchy, especially in the wonderful single 'Shuffle'.

Lucy Rose comes into this album (she sang in the title song of 'Flaws') and appears in around half of the songs and is such a fantastic addition with her beautiful voice, particularly in 'Lights Out, Words Gone'.

Suren De Saram is a brilliant drummer. A Different Kind of Fix doesn't have as catchy beats as in 'I had the Blues...' but he is still very inventive and shows how good of a drummer he is.

Jamie Maccoll's rhythm guitar gives all songs a nice flow and his backing vocals are perfect.

As previously mentioned, frontman Jack Steadman is a wonderful lyricist and a fantastic singer.

Overall, this is a brilliant album and you shouldn't hesitate in buying it.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Volt & Volume on 7 Jan 2014
Format: Audio CD
British quartet Bombay Bicycle Club are proof that you don't need even a modestly successful hit single to enjoy a hit album. Despite the fact that none of its five singles became hits, A Different Kind Of Fix reached No. 6 on the U.K. Chart solely on the strength of favorable reviews and the popularity of the band's previous full-length release, 2010's Flaws (U.K. No. 8), which didn't contain a hit single, either.
A Different Kind Of Fix is a thrillingly creative, refreshingly playful album which provides ample evidence that modern music doesn't have to be predictable or mediocre to become popular with record buyers.

They seem to have got a lot stick for changing their sound but this is still a good album and is worth a buy/listen.
Really its a 3.5 out of 5 for me for every song I like there another that doesn't interest me as much.

I suggest making your own mind up

Building a gentle, hooky pop song over a looping, dance-inducing piano sample, it's, like all the best late-summer sounds, 75% exuberant and 25% melancholy.
Its almost like this album represents Bombay Bicycle Club finding themselves - their own unique sound, because if you haven't already listened to them - they truly sound like no other. The acoustic plucking and Jack's vulnerable warbling is familiar to previous sounds however this time it perhaps stumbles happily onto something not a million miles away from soul.

Every song is just great and fits perfectly in place with one another. This version also includes the bonus track beg which is well worth listening too.
