Product Description

BBC Review

Aah, South! I love the first album, From Here On In.It went off in strange directions and the arrangements defied the norm.

Though moving more towards the mainstream, South's second album With The Tides remains as quirky as the first. But it has the added benefit of being consistently good and, honestly speaking, a little easier to come back to for repeat listens.

Tracks such as "Loosen Your Hold" and "Natural Disasters" have echoes of good Oasis but are more developed. "Nine Lives" and "Mend These Trends" are much more mellow and help to provide the contrast that perhaps the first album lacked.

Clever, catchy and a could-be classic given time. Shame about the cover art though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Going South? Eventually. 2 July 2004
By Mr. M. L. Hawes VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Firstly, let's get over the hype. This album has been vaunted as this years 'Cast Of Thousands' - Elbow, or 'Last Broadcast' - Doves. Well, it's not.
It starts in great style with the first three tracks hitting pretty spectacular heights, but it struggles to maintain the pace from then on. The fact that I have given it four stars indicates that it is a good record, but to be fair to South, it is cruel to compare the record with the two aforementioned titles.
With that aside, what should the listener expect? Stirring tunes with good melodies, power and grace and one or two songs that will stay with you throughout this year and the next. In fact, it seems a shame to criticise this record, but for me it falls down with a slightly muddy production, which leaves the vocals too deep in the mix.
It's a good record and bodes very well for the future, but I do think to myself with a better producer it could have been as great as many magazines and previous reviewers have suggested.

5.0 out of 5 stars making the right waves 21 April 2004
By Damian
Format:Audio CD
"With The Tides" is the eagerly awaited second album from indie-funkstersSouth. Its been over two years since they released their beat-driven debutLP "From Here On In" but the wait has truly been worth it.
With The Tides is an album full of seriously addictive songs. Think a moreacoustic driven Stone Roses mixed with the epic beauty of Good Will Outera Embrace and the beats of James Lavelle and you're getting close. Thefirst three songs are obvious standouts, but the rest of the album doesn'tdisappoint with more of the same infectious and melodious songs.
It is obvious that South have grown since their first album as this ismore mature and probably a more commercial sound. However, they still seemto be shunned in favour of more media friendly 'indie-rock' like FranzFerdinand, which is a shame because South definitely deserve to be upthere. The only disappointing aspect of the album is the poor cover artand inlay, which is impossible to read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe could be better but it still top class 1 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With the tides and You are here are of the same calibre as the great music of From here on in. This is pretty unique music and I have no complaint. I would like to see something new from the band/something live. They have some haunting melodies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth A Spin - But Get The Debut First! 10 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The first album, From Here On In, is one of the best 20 albums I own (I own in excess of 3,000) and anybody who wants to know what The Second Coming should have sounded like should get a copy. I remember being enormously disappointed by this effort at the time, dismissing it as Indie by numbers. However, listening to the album away from the unrealistic expectations I had upon release reveals it to be a more then competent slice of blissed Indie heaven. It won't change your life as an album, but it just might improve it a little bit and is that not what music is all about?

3.0 out of 5 stars Should Have Been Better 6 July 2009
By Ian22
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's my fault, I compared this album to 'From Here On In'. I wanted it to be a continuation of one of the best debut albums I have ever heard! Bands develop, grow, experiment, change etc. I did not want this to happen with South. But they did.

It's not a bad album, it's good - just not great. Their debut was great. This album does not get 'to the point', even the lyrics and other information in the album booklet are difficult to read, and just too overbearing and squiggly, yunno. Very good production... but not great. Their debut's production was great.

I am glad I bought this album, but I wanted to be blown away. Their debut blew me away...and still does after 9 years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, but.... 27 Dec 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album without ever listening to it first...I bought it basically on what I had read about it in NME but I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't as 'grand' as it was hailed as. However, I still think its a good album, not to be over looked, and certainly one that's great to put on in the background while you're doing other stuff like reading...
I would advise anyone to listen to it first before you buy it, but you'll probably like it anyway...
