Aussie alternative band Something for Kate is a prime example of self-development. Some artists have a way of keeping the same style throughout each album, but SFK is changing. In the beginning, with the album "Elsewhere for 8 Minutes", they were more rock. "Beautiful Sharks" was more commercial with a bit of experimentation, capturing attention with rock songs such as "Hallways" and the catchiness of "Electricity" (which has an excellent riff). "Echolalia" brought the most public attention, a very commercially friendly album that seems pretty much flawless. Now with "The Official Fiction", they've grown to add classy sophistication to their repertoire.
The differences between this and past albums are evident. While the commerciality isn't as frequent, "The Official Fiction" is nonetheless quite powerful and emotional, and is best played during a quiet night in. And to get the most out of this album, one should pay close attention to the lyrics, and SFK provides some of the best in the song-writing business of recent times.
A brilliant example of quality lyrics is "Best Weapon", clearly inspired by today's world. One can tell by the sinister tones in the opening bars that there is something disturbing going on. "His machines all agree, let's wind them up and march them out / History repeated and read out loud – this could be our best weapon now..." The second verse is even more powerful: "Stripes and suits pushing the numbers through / They treat them like they don't exist / And they count them up like they're matchsticks..." The lyrics are perfectly suited to the music, which has a haunting and emotional outro, with those two adjectives capable of pretty much summing up the entire album.

The first single from the album Deja Vu alerted me to this quality aussie band but i actually think the standout track is kaplan/thornhill with good use of some strings
the album is very good overall, a slight improvement on echolalia (which was very good), showing an evolution in the band.
I actually think light at the end of the tunnel and song for a sleepwalker arent all that impressive and are the weakest links on an otherwise impressive album.
Agreed, best played live, esp best weapon and deja vu

The first listen to the long awaited album from Something for Kate was like a breath of fresh air. Every bit as good and even better than Echolalia you can hear the band's talent in every chord and note. An amazing collection with each song telling it's own story. If you are considering some new music then this is the one to buy!!!
