Now I'm not one to get angry at fellow reviewers on here, as I know some do. However, the BreakingMusic review - 'could this be the last we see of Mystery Jets? is it over?' - ...I'm sorry!? DID YOU LISTEN TO THIS? No one who can record You Had Me At Hello (soulful, breezy, reminiscent of Young Love in its confidence) or The Hale Bop (practically The Bee Gees) can split or end it all now. What a ridiculous statement. They are breezy and fantisiful as ever.

And yes, the album is excellent. It strolls through the first few, ebbing and flowing from haunting love song to confident indie rock hit. The Ballad of Emmerson Lonestar is a touching moment early on, as is the title track. Serotonin, their most assured LP, had an air of claustrophobia about it, whereas Radlands knows what it is producing and what it is saying.

The album's centerpiece are the back-to-back Sister Everett and Lost In Austin. Both more rock numbers on the album, the touching choir on the end of the first leads well into the anthemic choruses on the second, and create a double-feature like a soundscape. Brilliant stuff. The closer, Luminescense, is a beautifully written track too, acoustic in form yet sometime sthe strongest numbers on this album are the stripped down ones. My one minor criticism of Radlands is sometimes it doesn't know how to end a track, yet repeating the bridge/solo part. This occurs on Someone Purer, Luminescence and Greatest Hits. This is fine when it works, but it drags out after a while on the album. This does not hinder what is a great 4th album from Mystery Jets, a grower for sure, and possibly their best yet.

A small nugget of knowledge but if you didn't already know "Radlands" is what the Americans refer to as the place where they store their nuclear arsenal in Texas...

In England I believe we use Scotland (as far away from the riches of the commons as possible)..might possibly be why Scotland is having a referendum for independence as they want to sign the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons treaty that Germany's on.
So if that goes ahead I imagine we'll send Trident to live in Northern Ireland..

Anyway the tape..

So a review of this album: If you need my opinion to help you decide on whether to purchase this tape then its probably not for you...

Unless you've never heard the Mystery Jets!

In which case I would thoroughly recommend getting up to speed with who they are by purchasing their prior releases in succession:

1)Making Dens.............2)21...........3)Seratonin...............Then Youtube "the Count & Sinden with the Mysetry Jetts" After Dark...

Then Buy This tape....

Each of their records are completely different in style and composition so listening to just one won't be enough to see they're unique style. I think they like the idea of completely playing across genres so that each time they give you something new that you couldn't have possibly expected..

If you spend a bit of time with these tapes you'll recognise that these guys have done fantastically well to make such excellent albums in such completely unique styles and in succession...

..But this is just my opinion, Jeff Capes may disagree..

Another great Album from mystery Jets!
Although there sound has diverted on this record! they have experimented with a kind of American 70's folk rock! & have pulled it off again.
In my opinion they go from strength to strength! & it seems there really enjoying themselves on this record.
I would highly recommend this Album! i bought it on vinyl' sounds fantastic With quality gatefold cover.
