I bought this Midlake album on the strength of hearing Balloon Maker on the brilliant radio show, Rocket Science
All the songs are of the Grandaddy mould but not exactly similar. There is the same cleverness of lyrics and the vocals do sound very much like Jason Lyttle but that is not a bad thing, I have four Grandaddy albums but this is still very much a welcome addition to my collection. Balloon Maker is a brilliant track, but the songs are consistently good throughout, I also thought I heard a touch of some stuff that sounded a bit like David Byrne's solo work. In general, it's a top album.
