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.

From the very first listen, Alt J's debut album 'An Awesome Wave' took my breath away and has rarely been off my CD player since. Needless to say, I was excited for the release of this second album. Despite the first single releases 'Hunger of the Pine' and 'Every Other Freckle' massively wetting my appetite for the second release, I can't help but feel a little disappointed with this new album. Although there are some stand out songs; including 'Nara' and 'The Gospel of John Hurt', the album does lack the drama and originality of 'An Awesome Wave', and the two singles cannot be beaten. 'Left Hand Free' is also a good stand out tune, but doesn't seem to fit in with the sound of the rest of the tracks. It was always going to be almost an impossible act to follow such an outstanding first album. I will still enjoy playing this one, and I am sure I will grow to love some of the other tracks, but you cannot help to draw direct comparisons between the two. I still maintain that Alt J are one of the best bands to come out of this country in the last few years, and their individual sound cannot be compared to anyone else out there. Their song production, imaginative lyrics and monastic sounding voices are completely unique. They are also an excellent live band.

Listening to this record for about the fifth time on repeat, I can't overstate how wonderful it is. It's so rare to find an album which is this instantly captivating, but which yields such riches from repeat visits, such inspired musicality, lyrical invention and emotional texture - just, wow. 'Choice Kingdom', 'Hunger of the Pine' and 'The Gospel of John Hurt' are perhaps the album's central pinnacles, but (other than the adman's anomaly 'Left Hand Free') it works best as a gorgeously proggy whole.

'This Is All Yours' is at least three times better than their callow debut, but seems to have sold a fraction. Please, please buy this immediately. Alt-J, if you read your reviews - all I can say is thank you for 2014's best album.

If 'An Awesome Wave' hadn't come before, maybe this album would seem a little stronger. Quite frankly though, it plays more easily than its predecessor and is lacking in the texture and weirdness. Perhaps this is a side-effect of bassist Gwil leaving between the two albums, but whatever it is, this album shows a softer and more controlled side to the band after a scatter-gun album 1. This isn't necessarily a great thing and I am convinced this album would not have reached the audience it has done without the band's reputation going before them. Lead single 'Hunger of the Pine' is the standout track, with its monstrous bass effects and desperate Miley Cyrus sample.

From first hearing Matilda played late one night on Radio 1 (in 2010 I think) and subsequently downloading everything they released on EP's etc. I waited desperately for the release of An Awesome Wave and was immediately blown away by it.

Like many others, I'm sure, I waited quite nervously for this release. Having heard Hunger of the Pine and Every Other Freckle played on 6 music, I did expect something quite similar to the first album but I'm very pleased to say there is even more depth to this offering.

As one of the previous reviewers mentioned, the singles are superb but the true highlights for me lie in the luxurious depths of the latter part of the album, from Warm Foothills to Leaving Nara.

The only very slight negatives are the slightly 'American Rock' style Left Hand Free and the daft 8 minute or so gap to the hidden track at the end (Magnificent Bill Withers - Lovely Day cover). These however are very minor gripes and certainly don't detract enough to remove the 5 star review.

A second Mercury prize could well be on the way!
