4.0 out of 5 stars Glowed and Beheld
I'm sitting listening to the album again while I write this, and it sounds really good. The change of vocals works. They have maintained the sound that that no one else seems to be making at the moment, and it does keep putting a smile on my face. Still, after three years in the making I'm a little disapointed. Absolutely loved the self titled debut, and thought Yuck...

3.0 out of 5 stars Playing it safe...
Standard, passable, indie-fare that has some interesting song ideas but just comes across as uninspired. It is shame really as the singer has some nice phrasing and songs such as 'Memorial Fields' and the spaced-out 'Somewhere'. The frivolous experimentation from their debut has all be disappeared - for that we have to seek out bassist's Mariko Doi's side-project...

They have maintained the sound that that no one else seems to be making at the moment, and it does keep putting a smile on my face. Still, after three years in the making I'm a little disapointed. Absolutely loved the self titled debut, and thought Yuck would be massive by now when I first heard it. Glow and Behold is solid rather than exceptional... Middle Sea has just kicked in, and I'm starting to think maybe I'm being a bit too critical... Its a worthy addition to any CD collection, I just hope the next album is here sooner, and sees the band on the trajectory that I thought they would be on when they first appeared.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated, 7 Dec 2013
This review is from: Glow & Behold (Audio CD)
Yuck have always had to deal with comparisons to other bands, for example Dinosaur jr on the first album. This time as well as that they have to contend with comparisons to themselves! In my opinion, this album more than stands up in its own right. Ok they have lost a singer but Max Bloom does a perfectly good job with the vocals. The tunes are here & if the sound is more accessible whats wrong with that? On first listen it might not blow you away but give it a chance & these songs will worm there way into your head. The horns scattered throughout add to & improve the songs. They may have shed the pre-grunge slacker rock lo-fi or whatever else you want to call it sound but this is a very good guitar pop album. Don't write them off!

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid, 30 Sep 2013

The second installment from Yuck. There are fuzzy guitars as you'd expect and a new singer, which, maybe you wouldn't. This album is definitely more laid back in comparison to their last offering. Middle Sea is by far the stand out track on the album and there's some sparks of grungey delight on other tracks, this is a solid album however I didn't get the same first time love for it as I did with their first. Maybe it's a grower, we'll see...

4.0 out of 5 stars solid second album, 29 Dec 2013
This review is from: Glow & Behold (MP3 Download)
A lot of bands have the difficult second album, but not Yuck. Back with a solid album, not great, but a good platform to build on. Getting more airplay and the unusual videos will see Yuck get bigger in 2014.
