5.0 out of 5 stars Born in 1891...?
Midlake's second studio album (after nearly a year and a half of recording and re-recording) is a lush, heavily melodic record, laden with multi-part harmonies and evocative lyrical imagery set in woodlands, boats and log cabins; telling oblique but moving tales of pioneering, travel and isolation. With flutes, accoustics and inspiring use of analog synthesizers, this...

3.0 out of 5 stars An ok start.
Typical first album. Some great ideas and a few fully-formed songs. NOT as good as The Courage of Others but certainly worth a go.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring boring boring, 18 May 2007

This review is from: The Trials Of Van Occupanther (Audio CD)
Bought this album off the back of all round spectacular reviews, but just found it bland, boring, unadventurous & generic. It's the kind of music I expect to be listening to in my valium-fuelled descent to old age. I'm a big fan of melodic indie & folk - sufjan stevens, willy mason, james yorkston - but this is an album that tries to disguise a lack of tunes with whimsical harmonies: it lacks any ambition. Not sure what that says about all the other reviewers, but i'd recommend you listen before you buy to make sure you don't end up with garfunkel-lite.

1.0 out of 5 stars boring boring boring, 27 July 2007
This review is from: The Trials Of Van Occupanther (Audio CD)
i'm afraid this is the most boring cd i've bought in recent times ! this album for me is going nowhere , i dont like to give negative reviews but this is entirely justifiable

the songs just limp along each one blending into the next and forming a one dimensional extra long track

1.0 out of 5 stars Just like boring old Travis, 14 Mar 2008
This review is from: The Trials Of Van Occupanther (Audio CD)
Yeah this is just like the boring old Travis, and only gets one star as we're in the 21st century, and Ive heard all this in the last century. They seem like nice fellas, but so did Teddy Ruxpin.
