Not only does Hello Sadness mark Los Campesinos' 4th record in as many years; it also marks their 4th consecutive great record. Over these years the band have shown a remarkable evolution from the looser, energetic "Hold On Now Youngster" to a tightly produced indie-pop sound on this record.

This is a concept album looking at the low and intense period that follows a break up and Gareth Campesinos!' lyrics remain as uncompromisingly honest and excellent as ever.

While the subject matter may sound depressing the songs are most definitely not. Opener "By Your Hand" has the most infectious chorus the band have written, the thrilling guitar lines (and a refreshing chorus sung by new member Kim) in "The Blackbird, The Dark Slope" will have you cranking up the volume and the build within "To Tundra" can be a real hair-standing moment.

Although an accessible album, for me, the album does benefit from repeated listens. Overall highly recommended!
Also, be sure to check this band out live!

Well I can only concur with the BBC review posted above; I've had my copy for a week or so (an early signed release) and there is less joie de vivre and more than a hint of darkness to the music/songs. Actually for an old fart like myself it somehow makes the music more approachable and, dare I say it, more mature. I've only listened to it 3 or 4 times thusfar (having been on a bit of a musicspendingfrenzy of late), and mainly whilst doing other things such as typing this short intro' (ie it's playing now!). I will supplement this intro' once I've given it a good spanking over the weekend. I've given it 5 *s as I have to give a score on it to post, & I've been impressed so far, but by Sunday night I may sneak back and amend it, just depending on a much closer listen.......

Another Priceless Album by Los Campesinos 20 Dec. 2011
By Adrian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Having listened to Los Campesinos for a number of years now, I was anxious to finally listen to this new album. The Album has definitely not let down my expectations, it is quite similar in many ways to their earlier work, yet in my opinion it sounds somewhat more "pop-like" although not in a negative way. As always the lyrics are a joy to read, with clever, strange, original verses from love to eye colors. "It's only hope that springs eternal and that's the reason why this dripping from my heart is never running dry" from the eponymous track is a nice example of these amazing lyrics.It came with a DVD which was really funny, which you would guess if you've ever seen any of the Los Campesinos videos, they really do have a great sense of humor. If I had to compare it with earlier albums I would admitt that so far I have liked their other stuff more maybe just because I have got more time to listen to it. Anyway I'm highly pleased with this new album and I'm pretty sure any Los Campesinos! fan would be pleased too.
Very good, made better if you see them perform the songs live 3 Nov. 2012

Hello Sadness is a solid assault of sadness and anger through and through. The album is not as emo as I just made it sound, but it isn't a happy album, in fact it seems sort of like a concept album about sadness. The album as a whole might have been better with more of an ebb and flow with the sadness, but Los Campesinos! instead went for pure heartfelt sadness and anger. For me, that prevents it being a classic, it fills it's niche very well.

What I enjoy most about Los Campesinos! is their cleaver word play, and this album delvers. I could list some them, but of course it doesn't sound as clever out of context, and frankly, I am terrible at remembering lyrics. Overall, I was pleased, but not terribly excited about this album, but then my enjoyment of it was taken to another level by seeing Los Campesinos live in Portland... In fact, they were so good I went twice (even got to chat with Kim)! Frankly, I surprised that Los Campesinos! aren't more popular, normally I don't like bands that are as obscure as Los Campesinos! seem to be. I hope they continue to make music!
