This is a wonderful album that's reminiscent of the early days of Orange Juice and their friends at Postcard records, especially if you enjoyed 'You Can't Hide Your Love Forever' by Orange Juice.

In a world where there are no new melodies to discover they seem to achieve the next best thing - catchy melodies with lovely arrangements and an interesting mix of acoustic and electonic instruments.

Lovely pop music with an orginal twist. They were recently on Jools Holland's TV programme in the UK and instantly caught the eye.

Worth a speculative purchase. If there was a half they'd get 4.5 out of 5

This has been pretty much my staple listen for the past two months and I'm yet to get sick of it. It would be hard for me to talk about this album and not mention the similarities in sound to Pavement, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and The Wannadies, so I will mention it. Not so off-kliter as Pavement, the vocals are very similar to those of Alec Ounsworth and the songs have the touching summer-breezed sentiment that The Wannadies are very good at. I really rate a band who are able compose really strong melodies without being too obvious.

I suppose the sound fits in somewhere between catchy pop and indie (tho "indie" is fast becoming the vaguest genre!) It's really hard to get the songs out of your noggin, once they are firmly set, but as I say this only makes me want to listen to the album all the more. This is definately one band I'll be making the effort to watch at Reading.

My favourite tracks are "Late" and "Trust vs Mis-Trust"

Nice and Nicely Done, is indeed, just that and I have no quarms about giving it a grand old 5/5!

Suggested as a good listen to me by a guy at work, this is, by far, the best album I've heard this year. Since I'm only 19 I can't compare them to any band I've heard before, but the music is beautiful and wonderfully written. The lyrics, (found in a box found in his grandfather's attic, after he died) contribute to being the best story for any band forming I've heard yet...passing on your dead grandfather's lyrical legacy... :-)

On top of this, the album comes together brilliantly and doesn't have a bad song on it. What's more, there are quite a few tracks which deserve to be singles.

If an album which won't disappoint is what you're looking for then buy this!

This is a funny, thoughtful original debut that has kept me returning. An impulse purchase that has continued to delight and amuse with it's kazoo riffs and catchy hooks. The comparisons to 'Clap Yours Hands Say Yeah'seem appropriate, particularly the vocals and sensibilities. I actually prefer The Spinto Band, though.

Songs like 'Direct to Helmet' and 'Late' caught me pretty quickly and have not let up, chasing old favourites on my 'most played' iTunes songs. They all have quirky, imaginitive touches and strong lyrics. I would definitly recommend this, and I will look out for future releases. I think it'll work out great for them.

Spinto are the sort of band that should be huge in Indie circles. Having seen them live, I can confirm there are about ten of them, and they fill the record in the same way they fill the stage. The music is short, sharp, bouncy and catchy. The highlights are Oh Mandy, with it's infectious toe-tapping chorus, Direct to Helmet, which builds into probably the most radio-friendly track on the album, and Mountains - shortest and sharpest of all - which for about two minutes rattles its way around a unique chorus melody and some super lyrics.

Spinto sound like no one in the charts, and although they may sound a bit like lots of people from the past, there are enough unique things about this album to make it not sound a lot like anyone.

I really like Spinto Band, can you tell?
