4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By russell clarke TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 Nov. 2009
Format: Audio CD
Hidden Cameras, front man Joel Gibb recently announced that " naivety is kind of worn, I would say." Which portends I would speculate that this is new album is a step towards a more mature earnest direction which when you consider that their last album was titled Awoo and book ended by two songs about water sports ( that's water sports in the adult specialist web-site sense lest you are confused )would not take much doing .
Mind you looking at the song break down on the insert notes there is still plenty that to signify that the trademark HC sound will be still be pulsing out of the speakers given that there are violins, horns, viola's French Horns double bass and even choirs. It might be serious stuff about.... well whatever it's about -alienation love and longing ( the tile track asks "Who in the world put me here to be all on my own ?) but surely it will be still set to serotonin pulsing capricious tunes with hooks so big they could land a Jurassic sea dweller?
Except that isn't the case either. .The music is still capable of being playful -"Underage " has ridiculous harmonies, scratchy funk guitar and the lyrics "I'll pretend you're seven , You'll pretend I'm eight " but mostly Origin Orphan see's the music morph into something more elegant, reflective and almost classical in composition at times.
"Ratify The New " ushers the album in on menacing droning keyboards. It sounds more like God Speed You Black Emperor than the merry pop deviants we are so familiar with. It's bit of a shock , like finding out Anthea Turner loves death metal , but once the vocals and high tension strings kick in things adjust to business as normal .....

This latest offering from The Hidden Cameras is on a par with the classic "The Smell of our Own" which came out several years ago. The tracks are clever, melodic and extremely hummable,the orchestrations sharp and sassy. My only slight gripe is that the lead singer (who actually has a lovely timbre to his vocals) does not enunciate the lyrics clearly enough for the listener to pick them out and sing along - otherwise this release would get 5 stars from me.

Indispensible Album 12 April 2012
By RiverMedia Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The music of Hidden Cameras evokes sweeping dream-like landscapes both pastoral and urban. Each track has it's own imagery - from the epic (Ratify the New), to the whimsical (In the NA)to the intimate (Colour Of A Man). Lyrically, there seems to be a pathos towards anyone who is or has been a social outcast - culminating with the song "Silence Can Be A Headline." The production values feature dense layered vocals coupled with rich instrumentation. Hidden cameras seems to draw inspiration from classic post-punk groups like Joy Division and Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark. This is a fantastic album that served as my introduction to the band. They are everything I look for in the groups I've filed as "Indispensable Albums" to be carted out of the house in the event of fire, flood or famine.
