The Reindeer Section are various members of various Scottish indie bands; Alfie, Idlewild, Teenage Fanclub and Belle And Sebastian, to name a few. This, their second album, is a pretty pop landscape of acoustic based love songs that are highly produced and have acomplimet from brass and strings. The first two tracks: 'Grand Parade' and 'Budapest' have those exact qualities. Continuing on through tunes such as 'Your Sweet Voice' and 'Last Song On Blue Tape', we hear a more reflective lyrical theme of heartbreak and other worldliness. When 'Cold Water' finally finishes it's 'alls well that ends well' brass and string enhanced outro, a surprise befalls us. A rift starts up on (shock-horror) an electric guitar at first sounding like an adult contemporary rock song, but when the chorus kicks in and three vocals and a rock organ play a five part harmony to end all five part harmonies we are delightful reassured. The tune continues into a finale with every instrument being played as if the previous parts of the record were all previews to this exact moment. 'You Are My Joy' is unmistakeably the album highlight. As the organ note trails off a drum machine starts playing 'chill-out' esc beats, and then-Roddy Woomble starts singing! The song 'Who Told You' is lyrically the same as most of the others, but it has an edge only the Idlewild singer could bring to it. The final track, 'Whodunnit?', is a piano/guitar fusion with distinct Scottish vocals courtesy of Adrian Moffat. "I fell in love again today/I think that's been everyday this week..." warbles Moffat, like a Scot, drowning his sorrows over a girl, in a pub. The album is distinctly Scottish, beautiful, profound and at times even inspiring. These lads and lasses have done good. Again.
