5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking big folksy pop 30 July 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
My God, what if Candidate were on a major label, and had the backing to get them all across the radio and TV? You'd be humming their gorgeous, clever songs all day. You'd hear them on every other film soundtrack.
After the outrageously sly folk of Nuada, this album is more similar to the excellent Tigerflies. It's a little less immediate, but there's no doubt that the songs here are all growers. You pick up a new one on each listen.
Over the last couple of albums the lads have really mastered the knack of using sweet vocal harmonies to fill a song. Here, there's a little more rock, a little bit of a 70s vibe, a little more obvious emotionalism.
One complaint: why the hell hasn't the fabulously big Mountain Snow been released as a single? It could be the song of the summer.

5.0 out of 5 stars originally reviewed online back in 2004 7 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD
I originally reviewed this on release for the BBc website, and this is an edited version of my review
This, their fourth album,is basically a love story set around the Skylon - a futuristic skyscraper built in London in 1951 for the Great Exhibition and demolished soon afterwards.

With great melodies and a rare example of that old-fashioned craft, songwriting, this album is beautiful in its performance, production and conception. Strong vocals from Joel and Alex Morris underpin the tracks and the band are tight yet loose, particularly on the Beta Band-esque Going Outside, while the delicate and emotive Falling Leaves is reminiscent of early Fairport and the use of a mellotron on Another One Down recalls The Beatles. With their strong use of harmonies and the lyrical wordplay of the band this is a worthy successor to 2002's Wicker Man-inspired Nuada, and is one of those albums that grows with you. By the time you reach the end you will be singing the chorus to the brilliant You are Loved.

The band have been mentioned in the same breath as US alt-country acts like Wilco and Granddaddy, and their styles are similar; however Candidate remain English in their outlook and performance and this is their real strength. Definitely an album of the year, and one that I keep returning to year after year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smashing 25 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Another amashing album from the band that several people have called "thebest in the country". Joel Morris and the other ones turn in a wonderfullycrafted performance that runs up and down the emotional register and backagain. This is an album to treasure and play again. It will grow betterand better.
