3.0 out of 5 stars Nice . . . But not much else . . ., 28 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Mind Chaos (Audio CD)
From first impressions make pretty simple indie-pop but on closer inspection there is something more to them. `Too Fake' is a nice opener and single that gives you a bit of an idea of the band with a bit of synth and the bass pretty high in the mix which gives a slightly different angle to the sound. `3am Spanish' then builds on this idea with muted strumming, jumping bass and a bouncy trumpet line to support it all. The vocals are energetic and focused to balance with the music very nicely.

`Learn to Loose' is another single and shows off the bands slightly sunnier aspects. The vocals are high and echoing with supporting harmonies and rolling guitar lines. It is certainly a very accessible single. `Work' then adds another aspect to the album with reggae like guitar parts and bongos, before `Song Way' adds another slice of pop/rock to the mix. `Curse This City' is a little bit of a throw away track, however `Four Holy Photos' is a nice surprise adding some Dylan like melancholy to proceedings. It is a nice effort with plodding bass, harmonica and highly descriptive/narrative lyrics. `Preacher' then opens with Beatles influences plain for all to see, but then bursts into a chirpy indie track with plenty of energy. `Put the Game Down' is a simple track with a strong base to it. Popping synths eventually build into a suitably energetic chorus which holds a strong bass line and a good lead line. Proceedings are then closed nicely by `Everyone's the Same Age'.

It is an interesting album that ultimately doesn't engage enough with the listener. It lacks a little emotion and conviction. This is not to say that musically it isn't good, it just could be better.
