Okay, cards on the table time. mesh are my favourite band of all time by a very long margin, so any new release fills me with a mix of excitement and a little dread. Three years on from their last release, I felt there was ample reason to feel a little apprehensive about this new single. For me, a dedicated electrohead, their last album 'We Collide' saw a bit of a shift where the dreaded guitar began to gain a greater prominence in their music, and as a result it took me a while to really like 'We Collide'. It also marked the end of the original line-up with keyboard player Neil Taylor departing. So, would Mark and Rich, the new mesh duo, continue on the dark path? Early reviews I read didn't help, with comments like 'not afraid to use guitars'. I need not have worried.

'Only Better' is like a mesh song, ONLY BETTER! (Sorry, but I couldn't resist). Yes, there are guitars here, but Mark and Rich have kept the synths in prominence and the guitars don't overwhelm it. And what a great song it is. It still has that dark edge that most mesh lyrics are famous for, with familiar themes of failed or failing relationships, but the hooks are as strong as a good pop song albeit with a far more complex tune than your average top ten fodder. I found it very sing-a-long-able. The Alien6 mix is the best of three versions here, and the two additional tracks, 'Shattered Glass' and 'Everything I Made' are just as good if a little darker and harsher. mesh have returned in great form and I have no worries that the new album 'A Perfect Solution' will be only better too.

Grown up music for grown up people.

Just buy it... Mesh (UK) gives us another fantastic single 7 Oct. 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After 3 years, Mesh is back and "didn't waste all that time". "Only Better" is the strong debut single from Mesh's upcoming album, "A Perfect Solution".

All 3 mixes of "Only Better" are good, but I prefer the original, Gritty Mix. The Alien6 mix kicks it up a notch but drops the violins, making this the number 2 mix for me. The Club Mix is not what I consider a traditional club mix, but really starts to shine when you can listen to its subtleties on headphones.

The other two singles are not as good as what Mesh usually packs on their singles, but are still worth the download. Everything I Made is also on the upcoming album, but I consider Shattered the more album-worthy of the two songs.
Yesterday is good but Yesterday is gone. 18 Oct. 2009
By TorridlyBoredShopper - Published on Amazon.com

Singles by bands I love always make me happy because it spells out "new album" and "this is what I am going to sound like." With Mesh, the sound should be one that people can guess by now - the vocals are more than superb, the sounds are fragile and sound like they come from a wounded place, and they all try to hand out meaning.

On this EP, there are three tracks of "Only Better," and here I find myself agreeing with other reviewer over the gritty mix being the best of the three. This isn't meant as a slight toward the others, either, because they all are worthwhile. Then there is Shatter Glass, another worthwhile addition to the Mesh collection, and my favorite track here "Everything I made." In so many senses this song reminds me of a rekindling of older tracks, taking me back a couple of albums while incorperating new sounds in this extremely talented band.

Everything vein they offer, tap it. You won't be sorry.
