A beautiful collection of slightly off-kilter gems. The whole album has a childlike pop-iness that is endearing and full of hooky pleasures. Highlights for me were the chilled swirl of "Chico", the drunken bounce of "Warm Night" and "Foriegn Country", and the booty-shaking "You Can't Hurry Love".

Actually no, I don't like it, I love it. It is pop as it should be. Sweet and shiny, short and super hot. All these songs make me swoon and smile like a gibbon. and I reckon a gibbon swoons and smiles pretty good. It is a case of substance and style not either/or. If you like the Shins, Beach Boys and have a certain prediliction for beautiful female voices ala nico, then you're gonna love this one. Pop album of this year, many years past and many years to come.

i recently bought the concretes self titled debut album after hearing good stuff about them; nme gave them an outstanding review and call me easily persuaded, i went out and bought it after listening to only one song. the album is quite understated with every song sounding similar. this i believe to be a good thing because every uplifting track belnds into the next and they are all calming and do not bash your eardrums into oblivion. catchy enough to make you hum the tunes all day and also brilliant for a lazy day drinking in the sun or played quietly on your cd player while drifting off. the fact that the band is from sweden and have eight members makes for a distinctly rich (but like i said understated) sound. i recommend this album to anyone who likes good music that doesnt have to be cranked up to be listened to

Imagine the VU's 'banana album' produced by Berry Gordy. An excellent debut that wears it's influences on it's sleeve whilst puffing away on Carribean woodbines. Motown and 60's pop influences are scattered throughout and a lead singer who makes Nico sounds positivly manic, strong sparse indie sounds interspersed with a great brass sound.
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something good.
