The Sound Of Arrows have taken their time to release this, their debut album, and it shows. What is immediately obvious is that there is no filler here - just brilliantly realised and moving electronic pop.

`Into The Clouds' builds up a sense of anticipation so that when the shimmering production kicks in it feels like a burst of sunshine. It's the perfect way to open the album as it sets the tone of widescreen production and of emotions taking flight.

`Wonders' is stunning, with synth sounds that send a shiver down the spine. It's dance music with purpose and grace.

`My Shadow' is mid-tempo and sounds instantly familiar. Warm synths sit alongside a wistful Italo-disco melody whilst lyrically it's bittersweet (particularly when the explanation for the song title is revealed at the 2:35 mark).

A remixed version of the bouncy single `Magic' is charming. Featuring a children's choir that manages to be moving rather than mawkish, this track looks back to a lost childhood (or the childhood we wished we'd had).

Things slow down for `Ruins Of Rome', which again features the children's choir to great effect. The retro-futurist electronica feels especially haunting for anyone old enough to recall the mid-80s.

`Longest Ever Dream' is the standout track of this amazing album - pulsating, melancholy and beautiful. Lyrically, it's got that late-ABBA (`Visitors' era) ambivalence where the past is suddenly being viewed from a new perspective. Musically, it has a strong Giorgio Moroder feel.

`Hurting All The Way' is a lovely, autotuned ballad. `Conquest' is pleasant but the least interesting thing here. `Nova' is the last `pop/dance' track & again pushes all the right happy/sad emotional buttons.

Quite simply took a bit of a gamble purchasing this, as i sometimes do, just had a gut feeling i would like it, and strangly enough i was right :-) It is so instantly likeable, the hooks are infectious and just makes me feel happier. Its a bit between (for me anyway) The Pet Shop Boys and St Etienne, great production too "Magic" is simply that, as is the rest of the album. So if you fancy been uplifted and made to feel a little happier give this cracking little album a go....you should not be disappointed.

This is hands down the best album I have bought all year... actually, it's the best album I have bought since Takk by Sigur Ros back in 2006!

Words cannot be enough to describe how euphoric this album is. It feel like hearing music for the first time. It feels like finishing school on the last day of the school year. It feels like the best night of your life dancing with every one of your friends you have ever known. It feels like the colours you see when you close your eyes.

This album is probably the best in 2011, and one of the best electro pop albums in last five years. You can recognise influence of pet shop boys or ultravox here,but on very quality way. So, in 2010 we had Hurts, and in 2011 we have Sound of arrows, even they will never be so popular like Hurts. However, this is top class masterpiece.

This is laid-back, cool synth pop, a bit like Pet Shop Boys, and that's certainly not a criticism. This is their debut album and it is a very polished work. The vocalist sounds quite like Neil Tennant, which is a good thing. Into The Clouds is the opener and very good it is too, with luscious synth chords and an anthemic chorus line.
Wonders is more akin to hi-energy Euro disco, reminiscent of Erasure perhaps. My Shadow is very Pet Shop Boys, with a lovely, echoey chorus and vibrant lead-line synths. Magic has a beautiful chorus sung by children, it had me thinking of Suffer The Children by Tears For Fears - brilliant. The bridge on this track is extremely well done, with gorgeous, sparkly synths and the children chanting M.A.G.I.C. Over and over again.
The children also feature on Ruins of Rome, providing sweet backing vocals. Longest Ever Dream sounds just like a Human League track, with a gorgeous duet by male and female vocalists, the female talking as well as singing. Hurting All The Way is like a slow OMD track, with synthesised vocals and dreamy, lazy synth chords.
Overall, this is a very impressive debut, it plays like a strong Pet Shop Boys album, and that pays a big compliment to this new group. If you like classic synth pop by the likes of Human League and Pet Shop Boys, and find that you enjoy this album, I strongly recommend that you check out four other wonderful, modern synth pop albums, namely Happiness by Hurts, Nonsense In The Dark by Filthy Dukes, Peachland by Peter Lunn, and True Loves by Hooray For Earth.
I'm a 46 year old chap, who's spent the past 30 odd years listening to the likes of Blancmange, Heaven 17 (I saw them in concert this year and they were fabulous), Thomas Dolby, Human League, OMD, Depeche Mode, Ultravox, Goldfrapp and The Lightning Seeds.
