Prior to Let Go
, Nada Surf's most notable achievement was "Popular"--their 1996 hit single and MTV staple that cast a cynical eye over dysfunctional US high school relationships to the sound of crunchy, Pixies-esque college rock. But with this, their fourth album, they're a world away from the sweaty dorm-rooms that spawned them. Like their peers Weezer
, Nada Surf have matured without all the negative aspects that might imply: flitting between driving power-pop, blue-skies post-grunge and acoustic rock balladry, Let Go
is an enchanting and subtle album that consigns the band's curmudgeonly, satirical edge to the dumpster. It's often beautifully simple: the curious "Blonde on Blonde" finds frontman Matthew Caws singing of listening to Bob Dylan
on his headphones as he strolls in the rain, while "Happy Kid" is a wide-eyed rollercoaster ride that boasts not a single cynical bone in its rosy, plump frame. Add this to the fact that there's some wry-but-muscular rock songs here that could take Rivers Cuomo on at his own game (see the fluorescent punk-pop rush of "The Way You Wear Your Head") and it suddenly becomes clear that Nada Surf are far more than "Popular"--they're a smart, alluring, attractive 21st century rock band that are so over high school it hurts. --Louis Pattison
