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.

I’d never heard of TSOA, coming across them via recommendations and finally after much deliberation, deciding to purchase after reading the reviews. I enjoy purchasing the odd CD without having much idea of what I’m buying, relying on customers who give proper insightful reviews and sometimes this pays off. This is the best instinctive purchase I’ve ever made and I agree with all of the 5 star reviews. Of course, the Pet Shop Boys comparison is unavoidable. So let’s get it out of the way: There are similarities, but in terms of the melodies, they couldn’t contrast more and TSOA are certainly not afraid of delivering a good tune and the accompanying production certainly is epic and ambitious: beautiful lush soundscapes, ups and downs, powerful and delicate. The album design mirrors a beautiful movie poster which perfectly represents the music; it’s on a grand scale. Lyrically it’s poppy and fresh, sometimes bordering on cheesy, yet never offensive or daft. It’s like everything works perfectly together.
In the days of CD’s containing sometimes over fifteen tracks and with so much filler and pointless dreary remixes, it’s refreshing to have a modest eleven songs with absolutely no filler or endless different versions. This method has the right effect of leaving you wanting more, rather than having to switch it off after ten tracks before it gets tedious. In the case of Voyage, you get two discs, the second being an entirely instrumental mix of the album. Again, not many albums can pull this off, but here it’s great. Voyage works well as an instrumental record, so strong are the melodies and with many of the songs nicely segued with some interesting interludes, this clever treatment creates a more “whole” and “complete” feel to it.

This album is very good. If you like great melodies, great synths and good electronic music you will love this album. This is great if you are running , driving or just chilling, this album came to me out of nowhere and I am surprise how good it is. If you like this album please also try the band CINNAMON CHASERS and their new album SCIENCE and ELECTRONIC'S debut album called ELECTRONIC which is really good and very similar to the new THE SOUND OF ARROWS album. Just great beats and very good electronic synth production.
