Each one of their albums has a different sound and back bone that runs through it. This one has a great combination of upbeat and melancholy tracks, and provides even more proof that Gomez are still continuing to evolve, both musically and lyrically, but managing to keep their unique and heart renderingly good melodies going.
I have been a die hard Gomez fan from the beginning, and have loved all of their albums. If you have a similar passion for them, then this album will fuel your fire more than you thought possible. If your loyalty to them has faltered at any point since Liquid Skin, then this disc will easily bring you back to them.
A great album from a truly talented band.
Lyrically, the tracks aren't much to shout about, but lets face it, most of the best bands songs aren't works of literary genius. Numerous in-jokes are still included, and give the songs a touch of feel-good humour. Gomez have stuck to what they know, and what they have proved they are good at, and personally, I love it.
I have had the pleasure of seeing the band perform the material live and they have not disappointed.
I would advise anyone to buy this album, particularly fan who have been disappointed since 'bring it on' and 'liqid skin'. This will not let you down
I love almost every track and thats rare these days with any band. I've always loved Gomez, although i couldn't quite 'get' their previous effort, Split The Difference. I loved their earlier albums but STD just didn't quite fire with me. So i was a little hesistant with HWO but it really is superb. Notice, See The World, How We Operate, Chasing Ghosts With Alcohol and especially Charley Patton Songs are awesome. I always prefer the gravelly tones of Ben Ottewell on their releases but Ian and Tom's efforts are just as good on this album. I just wish they were playing Nottingham on their UK tour. I've seen them twice but it's been a few years and they are a really good live act.
It's now a toss up for album of the year so far between Gomez, Derek Trucks and the Drive By Truckers. Three great albums.
Go and buy !!!

I agree with many of the reviews here. I think the last few albums (since Abandoned Shopping Trolley) have been quite lame and not the same as the first three albums, which I... Read morePublished on 23 Jan. 2007 by C. Killick
