Let me just start off by saying that I am a huge 6by7 fan, right from the beginning of 'These things we make' and 'get a real tattoo' (career highlight by far) They have always been that band, when people say, 'so what's your favourite band?' 'Six by Seven', 'Right! Heard of them, never got round to buying anything.' And after years of saying 'do it', I find myself still directing them to the first album, which, in my opinion they have never come close to matching.
04 is a good album; 'bochum' is perhaps the closest they have come to being joyous, hopeful even, while maintaining that precious 6by7 crunching tide. I just feel they have lacked the sinister edge that drew me into their debut. At points they have even imitated the first album - see drum beat on 'sometimes I feel like...' and 'European me'.
Saying that though, this is a different sound, more spiritualised than arab strap. Both of whom I love to bits. But for me 6by7 are, and have been for the last three albums, in a middle ground. they are not quite this, and not quite that, which in some respects is good ; no one likes to be pinned down. But for me it makes the sound confused and a little directionless.
Then again maybe this is the 'its never as good as the original' complex, so maybe I should just shut the hell up. If you don't own any 6by7 then remedy that situation, now. They are still a crucial band, despite my ramblings.

Fantastic new album by Six By Seven.
Yep, they're still here, and yep, they still havent made the big time. How is it possible, Especially with an album as good as this one??!!!!
To me it is just as good, if not better than their debut, 'The Things We Make'.
Six By Seven do have a different sound on this album (after all, there are only 3 of them now), although at the same time you can still tell its them. There is an apparent Spacemen 3 / Spiritualized similarty in sound on this album, which indeed is no bad thing.
Tracks such as 'Ocean', 'Catch The Rain' and 'Bochum' are instantly catchy. 'Bochum' is without a doubt their most upbeat track to date.
'Sometimes I Feel Like' does sound familiar, and does sound very Six By Seven, but a NEW Six By Seven.
I hope that great things finally happen to this band, and that they finally get the notice they so deserve.
Everyone buy this album now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I echo the previous reviewers by saying, "Why the hell aren't this band massive??"! This album shows them down to three members on a small indy label and putting out a less rocky feel as their previous two albums, but still awesome in scale. Possibly, the most accomplished sounding since their debut, with more spaced out electronica than their previous outings, possibly drawing the comparisons with Spaceman 3 and My Bloody Valentine, but still retaining that definitive 6x7 feel.
I'm going to see them live tonight, saw them a couple of years ago and was looking forward to it, but after hearing this album I can't bloody wait!
Come on people, buy this album and if you haven't got them, their other albums as well and help give this band the huge success they deserve!

The Nottingham trio continue to hammer out phantasms of exquisite, electronic brilliance while the indie world continues to not care/notice. A clear example, if one were needed, of just how unconnected 'cool' and 'brilliant' music are. Without ever having a record troubling the top forty Six. By Seven could release a best of which would electricute the opposition (except no-one would buy it). Working in waves rather than walls of sound, illustrating the difference between up-its-arse post-rock pretension and genuinly great ear-pulping electronica, '04' mesmirises rather than bores and comes equiped with an acute kick of feedback howl, if any nodding off does occur, suspending the listener bewtween blissful nirvana and convulsing ecstasy.
