Product Description

CD Description

Mew are a band like none other, a creative trio who help shape and define the Scandinavian underground art and music scene not only with their unique breed of music but with their inspirational audio visuals and animation. Mew’s 2003 European release of Frengers, caught the ears of profound music lovers and tastemakers, while 2006’s release of, And the Glass Handed Kites cemented the bands cult status and won over critics on both sides of the Atlantic. Their latest offering, No More Stories is again - nothing short of spectacular. Recorded during the summer of 2008 in Brooklyn, NY with renowned producer Rich Costey (Muse, Glasvegas, NIN) Mew had spent the last year between Brooklyn and Copenhagen perfecting the album and creating the animation and audio-visuals for their upcoming live performances.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mew tell all the stories... 15 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
Once you have condensed the somewhat off putting title to simply 'No More Stories' then you can start listening to what Mew have to say this time around, and it really is very good indeed. Each of Mew's albums has its own character and this one is no different. Debut 'A Triumph for Man' is a striding and confident album filled with accessible yet innovative tracks. Follow up 'Half the World is Watching Me' is a more of a straight out rock album which laid the building blocks for third album 'Frengers' which is joyously anthemic and almost poppy at moments. Fourth album '...and the Glass Handed Kites' is a master stroke with an almost consistent flow pitching you from epic highs like 'Zookeeper's Boy', 'Saviours of Jazz Ballet' and 'An Envoy to the Open Fields' to the crunching devastation of 'Apocolypso'.

So what does this fifth album do different. It is a strangely broken album. Opening track 'New Terrain' almost sounds like it is being played backwards with synths that cut short like the passing of a police car siren. It gives the track the feeling that it is constantly trying to catch up with itself and yet at the end it opens into a gently humming organ part that rolls straight into the broken guitars of 'Introducing Palace Players'. This track bounces like the drunken dance at the end of a long night. It is exhilarating though slightly uncoordinated. 'Beach' chimes and jumps into the sunshine and takes you along for the ride like all good pop songs should.

Then we get a little more serious. 'Repeaterbeater' is a plodding widescreen rock song. By this point in the album the quality is really starting to shine through, and this is proven fantastically by 'Silas the Magical Car'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jaw-droppingly stunning! 7 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
I'm new to Mew, having only come across them whilst looking for artistes similar to Thirteen Senses. Whilst I can see some similarities, what with the falseto voice and piano-based music (on a couple of occasions on the wonderful Cartoons And Macrame Wounds singer Jonas actually sounds more like Will South than the Thirteen Senses frontman himself!), Mew definately have that certain something about them that makes them impossible to pigeon-hole with other bands. Please give the backwardesque-sounding opening track New Terrain a chance as it definitely grows on you after a few listens. This is followed by the seratonin overdose that is the ultra-catchy Introducing Palace Players, which features an amazing last-minute cocktail of heavy synth, guitar and voice combo which leaves you punching the air in a gimme more kinda way before moving onto the pop-tastic Beach. Repeaterbeater is gloriously pumping up-tempo stuff, Silas The Magic Car is another beautiful track, whilst Cartoons And Macrame Wounds is a gorgeous cacophony of beautiful tunes and vocals amidst a dreamy backdrop which this band seem to have made their own.

Hawaii is another track atypical of these Danes' unique brand of audio-lushness. Vaccine ups the tempo perfectly on a CD where the track order is nothing if not perfect - so much so that to truly appreciate this body of work, it really has to be played in whole without skipping any tracks (not that any are worthy of skipping). Tricks Of The Trade is another favourite, as is Sometimes Life Isn't Easy. The album closes with the delicous melody that is Reprise, a piece of music that just leaves you wanting more.

Whatever else you purchase, make sure this masterpiece is in your shopping basket. Listen to it a few times, become addicted, recomment to your friends if they have good taste in music and be forever appreciated as the one who brought this CD-shaped ray of sunshine into their lives!

5.0 out of 5 stars Was it worth the wait??? 5 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
Hell yes it was worth the wait! I was worried when i watched the making of the new album online. Looking even less like rock stars and sounding less rock had me worried for a moment. When I got the album my worst fears came true - Mew looking like their mums had dressed them in the inlay pictures and first song 'New Terrain' sounding like backwards 70's space prog. Oh dear. But then something happened. After a few spins things began making sense. Gone is the bombastic rock production of Beinhorn on their last album which, to be honest, having listened to this album many times now, never really suited their ethos anyway.

Sophisticated dreamy pop is how I would now describe what Mew are doing, although as all the Mew fans know - summing up their sound with a throwaway categorisation should best be left to the emos. 'Introducing Palace Players' is a gorgeous first single and songs like 'Silas The magic Car' and 'Sometimes Life Isn't Easy' are majestic and uplifting. It defies belief that a band can make something so amazing out of a few chords a bit of production but Mew have done it again. Not one of the songs can be described as having a fast tempo which you would think would make for a boring sounding record...but no. Instead this record is comfortable in itself and its pace kept to a minimum to try and show off its assets which it effortlessly does.
Still unique, still gifted and better than ever this is their best album IMO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulously unlike anything else 4 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
Wow. There's few other words capable of describing the aural feast that is Mew's third album - there's more here to digest than that considerable mouthful of a title.

Don't be deceived by confused opener New Terrain - No More Stories... is a magnificent, experimental, post-pop album. Mew have made an album more joyous than their previous output would suggest, avoiding their previous two albums' heavy set and musical angst.

Sometimes Life Isn't Easy is one of the highlights: almost impossible to describe, and certainly impossible to categorise, it sounds almost like Sigur Ros playing Coldplay. Other highlights include Cartoons And Macramé Wounds and the pure pop rush of Hawaii and Repeaterbeater. Tricks Of The Trade builds a haunting atmosphere, while Reprise is a beautifully gentle closer.

In all, No More Stories... is the album where Mew finally nail all the details - every sound is fleshed out, but not overproduced, the songwriting is at its peak, the psychedelia actually sounds fresh, and they're finally making the music no one else can make.

In terms of music, this may be a reasonable album but I fear I'll never find out: the recording (or, more likely, mastering) has rendered it practically unlistenable. Read more
