5.0 out of 5 stars Try harder??? It hardly gets better than this., 3 Dec 2003
This review is from: Underachievers, Please Try Harder (Audio CD)
Finally got my hands on this album following raving reviews of John Peel and Stuart Murdoch ( Belle & Sebastian ) and not that Camera Obscura do not disappoint, they are actually fantastic and I would rate this album as my favorite from anything which has been released this year.
Delightful catchy pop tunes beautifully crafted, with a songwriting quality which simply makes you wonder if they already existed. The lyrics are fantastic and I would understand the link with Belle & Sebastian. But Camera Obscura sounds different and their atmosphere is different; I would see the similarities in their ability of portraying a wide range of emotions with a unique twist, and brilliant wit!
Favorite tracks are Number one son, Lunar Sea, Keep it Clean... although all of them are fantastic; a must buy for everyone who likes B&S, The Smiths... and actually it would be too simplistic to compare Camera Obscura to anything or anyone.
Deserved to be recognised!
