3.0 out of 5 stars
Could have been so much better, 2 Feb 2014
The main appeal of Chvrches is Lauren Mayberry's wonderful, soaring voice. How disappointing that on 2 of the 12 tracks the vocals are handed over to one of the other band members - oh, so bland I'm afraid and you can't help thinking what Lauren could have done with those 2 songs. Never mind, don't forget that the Beatles used to let Ringo sing a tune now and again.
I loved the other 10 songs, so would recommend to anyone who likes melodic synthpop. Would have given 3.5 stars if I could.
I really don't understand the adverse comments about poor sound quality and poor mixing by some reviewers - CD sounds great on my separates home system, full of depth and detail.
