Sublime and uplifting, the debut album from The Stills is a real pleasure. Mixing the sounds of Interpol, The Strokes and The Cure with the lyrical beauty of The Doves this is a polished and impressive 49minutes.
Jangly guitars, tuneful bass and soaring choruses are commonplace in an album that manages pounding pop (Still In Love Song, Lola Stars and Stripes) just as well as tearful anthems (Let's Roll).
It's great to hear a band putting emotion and energy into a debut album rather than rushing out an LP of fillers. It's an album of real heart and emotion and as such a very promising start indeed.

Expect big things from this band in 2004. Their debut album is simply stunning, track 2 "Gender Bombs" is a real gem. In fact all 12 tracks are great, all different in their own way. Like a best friend, you'll grow to love and treasure this album, because I did and believe you me it's worth keeping hold of.
A rewarding experience.

The Stills managed to deliver black yet bright music on this bold and ravishing album, with intelligent and insightful lyrics ("Changes..., "Gender Bombs"). The outstanding performance and blending of the rhythm section, with fantastic bass lines ("Still in Love Song", an updated version originally released in the Rememberese EP) keeps a good balance with the marvellous guitar riffs and progressions of the likes of "Changes are no Good" and "Love and Death" which are reminiscent of Echo and the Bunnymen, The Devlins, and James' Whiplash cinematic atmospheres. This band is as good as Interpol and Longwave, with a more balanced production on the debut album. Such a band will likely deliver an even better second installment.

“Love and death are always on my mind,” announces Tim Fletcher, erstwhile frontman/guitarist of Montreal’s The Stills. Probably not the best man to spend an evening in the pub with, then. But this Canadian four-piece’s approach to the genre probably best labelled “post-modern angst rock” (yes, I just invented this genre) is refreshing. For a start, it sounds like they laid a layer of effects on the drumkit so that the snare and bass drum become less like percussion instruments and more like harbingers of intergalactic destruction. Well, OK, perhaps not quite that loud, but the drums thunder each song along to its conclusion. It’s a neat trick.
They wear their influences on their sleeve at times, with nods to Wire and early U2 in the guitar lines (Lola Stars And Stripes), and the waves of guitars piled on top of each other suggest a working knowledge of My Bloody Valentine. The only flaws that this reviewer could spot are a reliance to rely on one mid-paced tempo in the same way Travis used one speed to record 'The Man Who', and some worryingly funny lyrics that I suspect were meant to be meaningful. “She said she was a virgin, and I asked her which version” is the baffling retort on Alison Krausse, the extra ‘e’ presumably added to avoid a lawsuit from one of Nashville’s finest. All in all though, a record with a lot about it to like. Hook-laden, fizzy and energetic, this is a debut album of real promise.

A treat for fans of repeat listens. There's something seedy yet hopeful about all of this. 'Still In Love Song' was the best song of 2003; 'Changes Are No Good' may be the best of 2004. If you like music that swoops about a bit, and then sweeps along, and then stops, and then grabs you as it leaps up and you suddenly realise that you're not quite where you thought you were, then I'm delighted for you. This album is probably for you.

The Stills create a sound that hovers in a strangely natural way between the Smiths and the Strokes - two bands a million miles apart. The debut album 'Logic Will Break Your Heart' offers some absolutely brilliant tracks, enforced so successfully by the beautiful guitar backing from Greg Paquet - Tim Fletcher's voice is nothing special, and if anything a little too depressive, but it complements the general melody well enough and is perfectly inoffensive.
The opener, "Lola Stars and Stripes", is a beatuiful song, highlighting the lack of change in the world since the start of the cold war and impending threat on the world today, while effortlessly blending this with a love song to their muse figure, Lola. And this gives the listener an idea of what to expect - a politically fuelled mix of songs that don't spell it out and work on both the level of boy-girl or Iraq war. "Changes are no Good" is the highlight of the album, again suggsting that political change never comes, while cleverly working this into the idea of personal change. The songs ring true on several different levels and work brilliantly even if you don't listen to the lyrics (although the album is inhibited by a few of the elss memorable tracks). Overall, The Stills offer a huge amount of promise for the future, and while 'Logic Will Break Your Heart' will hardly be their piece de ressistance it's possible to see that from this beginning massive things are possible.

In order to guarantee commercial success, the record company presented The Stills with a checklist of things they had to include on this album before they were allowed to record; jangly guitars (check), sweeping basslines (check), brooding vocals (check) and a penchant for the bleak (let's see, 'Changes Are No Good', 'Love & Death'... check!) Well, it didn't give them any commercial success but they certainly made one hell of an album, because The Stills took it upon themselves to include a final bulletpoint to the list; good songwritting (check, check and check again).

Forget the comparisons to Interpol (who I love nearly as much) because The Stills can stand up for themselves, without having to credit a more popular band just for point of reference; for a start vocalist Tim Fletcher imbues far emotion into his singing that Paul Banks (now I wont mention them again, promise).

'Logic Will Break Your Heart' is the sort of album where every song is strong and individual. Highlights include 'Lola Stars And Stripes', kick starting the album with an upbeat, chiming riff that rings like a fire alarm made by Fender. 'Changes Are No Good' is a driving track that benefits from some carefully placed feedback and an anthemic chorus that, considering the subject matter, really shouldn't be. 'Let's Roll' displays The Stills talent for setting a bleak, paranoid lyric to a wonderfully singable melody. It hides a heart-warming message ("But I'm not affraid / As long as you're here with me") inside a paranoid lyric ("Don't be affraid / Of the roaming alligators / And save the heart attacks for later") inside a heart-warming melody.
