this is simply one of the best albums ever made. with amazing melody throughout, clever lyrics and harmonies to make you whimper. rythmically the most organised and diverse pop you will ever hear from a three(now four) scottish lads with an eye for a pretty girl and a prettier tune. also the original version without the icy you e.p on makes lovely going to sleep music but the re-issue through gravity dip is even more worth having purely for the fact that music from these boys is rare and to be treasured.

The first time I listened to this album. I didn't like it. It was full of half-pop half-clever sharp melodical music that stop-starts, almost struggling to keep up with itself. I picked it up again 6 months later and it didn't come out the CD player for weeks for exactly the same reasons I didn't like it in the first place. It's the classic example of pop music done very cleverly with a refreshing new angle, while still not being even nearly poppy enough to be classed as pop. Pop-chique. Love it. Buy it.

I was at first unsure of this album as it lacked the directness of their debut "Rebuild the Pier", but in retrospect it is far superior. It is on occasion difficult to penetrate as sometimes it is sparse but there are so many moments of pure beauty and dare I say it, genius that I cannot think of a time when I will ever not want to listen to this. "Now we trust the Pilot" is a triumph of soaring melody crossed with delicate intricacy, and "Esplanade" and "Our returning champion" provide more straight up pop tunes with some grit. "Sometimes they do but they don't tell me" and "Vapour trails" may pass you by at first because they are so soft, but they are sweet in equal measure for the close listener.

I loved this album before the re-release but the "Icy You" EP added here is another touch of class; ranging from the anthemic "Icy you", through the pinnacle of math-pop fun that is "Lights Luxembourg" (arguably my fave Stapleton track)to the amusingly titled "the boredom of bread, the fun of cake" which is Stapleton verging on post-rock and definitely one for fans of interesting chord changes.

This is the band Snow Patrol, Idlewild and Death Cab wish they were.

Everything is right with this album. Everyone working in tandem and it feels like every bar has been thought about.
