After seeing Boxer Rebellion twice and been captivated by the last two albums I was very excited to pre-order and receive this album this morning and play it start to finish straight away whilst looking through the gorgeous hard back booklet, it is lovely, glad Amazon put the photos up of it, does not do it justice but helps, I will post a video up just to show it off more. Lovely hand written lyrics and lots of love has clearly gone into this and it shows.

1. `No Harm' is a slow gorgeous builder of a song that envelopes you in its swirling beauty. Really incredible how its simplicity is so effective, though simple as it sounds, I'm sure it wasn't so simple to write and capture.

2.`Step out of the car' heard this a few times online and loved it, sounds like the boxer rebellion I am more familiar with, but no less in love with, builds and buzzes along. Brilliant.

3.`Locked in the basement' is a slower number, gorgeous vocals and effective stripped back guitars. I can hear tinges of the style of guitar work that leaves me reminiscing over the last Radiohead album `rainbows'. Fans of Radiohead will I am sure really love boxer rebellion. This track grows and grows; I think I will end up hooked on this one.

4.`Cause for alarm' another slow but no less captivating song. Feel myself getting lost in the swirly world of this song, its gorgeous beyond description.

5.`Caught by the light' beautiful song, sounds like a million twinkling stars musically. I can think of no other way of describing this.

The Boxer Rebellion's 2009 album 'Union' was a very fine
piece of work and their new release 'The Cold Still'
convinces me still further of their worth in the listening world.

This splendid ensemble gets straight down to business from
the off with a cracking moody anthem, 'No Harm', its brooding
backbeat holding Nathan Nicholson's plaintive voice aloft
like a funeral march. Mr Nicholson sings of his inner beast
with haunting alacrity as the storm clouds gather around him.
It is a fine opening gambit which sets the tone for the project.

There are ten tracks in the collection and the mixture of energy
mixed with gravitas is masterfully sustained throughout. Even on
a storming upbeat number like 'Step Out Of The Car' there is
little respite from "the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune".

The sisister lyrical content of 'Locked In The Basement' is
curiously at odds with the almost jaunty melodic content. It seems
that Mr Nicholson is prepared go to extreme lengths to secure this
particular romantic attachment. Metaphorically hopefully!

'Organ Song' does indeed have an organ in it but more than this
it delivers perhaps the most powerful and affecting composition
of their recording career so-far. Piers Hewitt thumps his drums
for all he's worth, driving the song along like a railway train
hurtling across a parched desert landscape. Mr Nicholson sings
from the heart like a man who really means it! Splendid stuff!!

Final track 'Doubt' is a beautiful invention too. A tune so
stripped-down and focussed that the speakers almost blister
and burn in the beam of its elemental presence.

As my title says, The Cold Still is The Boxer Rebellion's third album and things are rumbling along perfectly for the four piece band from different corners of the world. You may wonder then why they haven't had the critical acclaim of Arcade Fire or the hype of The xx. In truth however the band will probably tell you that if you work hard and are good enough then the deserved critical acclaim will eventually follow (see The National or Elbow) and the hype? Well who really needs it? I'm sure if you're reading this then you'll no doubt know that over hyped bands either talk or are talked about too much before anyone really listens to their music (Glasvegas or The Vaccines spring to mind). Thankfully for The Boxer Rebellion and us they do their talking in the studio.

The Cold Still begins where the behemoth second record 'Union' left off. Hooking you with haunting melodic songs the record rolls on at a steady pace with no need to skip any 'filler' tracks. If any of this collection of songs had to be singled out for a special mention then No Harm, Locked In The Basement, Organ Song and Both Sides Are Even would be the first ones I would choose.

This is an album packed with soaring vocals, roaring guitars, hypnotic rhythm, rumbling bass with no lack of self assurance or temerity. A band right at the top of their game, lets hope that 'hype' and NME stay away from them for a while yet.

An exceptionally well crafted album.

I've been listening to this for some weeks now and assure you that it deserves far more credit than it has so far received in the popular music press.

I bought this on a whim and would urge you to take a chance on The Boxer Rebellion.... they are very good. This has a more intensely relaxed feel than their debut, "Exits". Don't compare them though as this band have moved on since then. Whether you approve of the musical change or not they are both excellent albums that deserve attention.

The first three tracks really set this album up. "No Harm" has a powerful drum beat prior to the plaintive vocals, hauntingly sung over the top. Delightful track!

"Step out of the car" is a more upbeat, rocky song. It's catchy guitars lead into a deeper, harder sound - more reminiscent of songs from "Exits". This is a strong punchy track that belies the rest of the album's content.

More typical is track 3, "Locked in the basement". Probably my favourite track on the album, it has great deep lyrics, catchily arranged and contains a nice meandering beat. Definitely a track you want to keep coming back to, it builds and builds into something the Kings of Leon would be happy with.

Finally, the penultimate track, "The Runner", deserves a special mention. A catchy beat and equally catchy guitars start it up nicely, this is followed by those plaintive vocals again, but this time harmonised and rhythmically so well tied into the music. Just one of many really good tracks and plenty more to be discovered.
