Format: Audio CD
Alt-J are that rare thing - a rock band that genuinely has an "alternative" sound. Unlike most such bands, they make use of dynamics and space in music - they are not scared to be quiet or reflective, slow in tempo with every sound and nuance exposed. Each song is a miniature masterpiece with its own instrumentation and each could be the soundtrack to a moody, atmospheric, but very classy, TV drama.

This album makes use of an unusual variety of acoustic instruments as well as including electronics, samples and programmed music. Guitars are subtle and interweave with drums that never overpower and always add interest. "Choice Kingdom" is preceded by an interlude which has a chorus of Recorders and has vocals that could have been the Fleet Foxes with gentle acoustic guitars and percussion. Bloodflood PT II has distant acoustic piano and a brass arrangement of trombones and euphonium, mixed with programmed beats!

Some tracks sound a bit like Sigur Ros , while others are reminiscent of the slower songs on Joy Division's "Closer" - but the whole always makes for a distinctive group sound that is in fact quite unlike anything else going on and there are no concessions made towards commercial acceptance - each track takes its time and unfolds organically and many become virtually instumentals where the arrangement takes over and the vocals just become one part of the overall texture.

Vocals are important with many backing singers and on "Warm Foothills" different singers seem to alternate every word to haunting effect. Elsewhere sampled vocals are layered and at other time harmonised so that they become part of the instrumental timbre. But it's all part of the unique "sound" and the excellent production.

Even better than their first album An Awesome Wave. The songs grow better with 8 to 10 listens and then you just can't stop putting the CD on. I buy 3 or 4 CDs a month and this is highly likely to be my top album of 2014, if not in the top 3.

A great mix of sounds and volume on most tracks. I've been waking up all this week with the track Nara in my head.

A colleague recently said to me that there were no new ideas in modern music. I had just bought 'This is All Yours' and played it for him. Nuff said

When I first became aware of Alt-J through the spectacular An Awesome Wave, one of the first things I said to the discerning young head in the household was, "The only question is who will come second to this band in the Mercury awards this year." And of course that was a prophesy fulfilled. I marvelled at An Awesome Wave and quietly felt disquiet at how Alt-J could possibly follow that album. My fears were needless. This Is All Yours in my opinion is a soaring accomplishment. I feel it is much better than the startlingly good An Awesome Wave. At times it feels like a soundscape which is operatic in scale. Read a few of these reviews and it becomes evident that lots of different songs are different people's 'stand out' songs. This should tell you how strong this album is. I don't want to talk about favourite songs, because the whole album honestly moves me, but the intro track is just incredible; it sets the tone for a stunning album. The album casts off any doubts you might have had about just what Alt-J have got left in the tank. Discover a dimension of music you didn't know you craved. Listen to this sophomore album. A parting shot: in places this album bears strong resemblances to Jan Hammer's occasional moments of genius.

Really good album. I really enjoyed Alt-J first album and this adds a great new dynamic. The first album in ages that I actually feel is a story and lots of thought has gone into its flow. I listen to it loads in the car. something of the Mike Oldfield about it and i really enjoy the syncopated percussion and off beat instruments and rhythms.

Genius. Some of the songs are on a different level to anything anyone else has done before. Nara, The Gospel of John Hurt, Hunger of the Pine, Bloodflood pt.II. - the just seem as though they are of a different world. I just don't know how you could improve on them, but I felt that after hearing their first album too. Not all the songs on this album jump out at me, but the ones that do are genuinely master pieces. A must buy!

This album is so varied and there's so much going on. It's pretty difficult to pick a favourite track, but 'The Gospel of John Hurt' is an atmospheric and exciting effort. The album builds on Alt-J's unusual debut An Awesome Wave and IMHO is actually even better. Give it a listen, and another one and another one and it eventually grows on you so much that it becomes essential listening. 5/5.
