5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome back, boys., 6 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ornaments From The Silver Arcade (Audio CD)
Nice to see Young Knives back after three years. First impressions, this is a very enjoyable, accessible Lp that could well be the soundtrack to my summer.
It's more loose and funky than the first two Lps, but still retains those hallmark new wave/post-punk stylings that they do so well.
It reminds me in certain places of early eighties Talking Heads, but also some later-period XTC, giving you an idea of the 'poppier' feel throughout.
There's no filler here, with several of the tracks (Everything... , Running..., Vision..., Glasshouse) being up there with their very best.
Also, for me, this is a more cohesive set of songs than Superabundance, which, while being great, sounded like they weren't sure of the musical way ahead.
As a snapshot of a band maturing as songwriters in the face of seeming indifference from the music media, this is very satisfying and gives me hope that nice guys with talent and integrity can win the day.
