The sound of The Magic Numbers is a thing of beauty. Three-part harmonies that melt you within seconds, guitar playing that is as technically outstanding as it is emotionally super-charged, and songs that will leave you utterly floored. There is a simplicity to songs such as the single "Hymn For Her" that is a lesson in great songwriting a gorgeous rising melody from the mesmerising Romeo Stodart swoons alongside Angela and Michelle's harmonies the result is music that is as sweet, angelic and heartfelt as they come.
In an age of vigorously-marketed rag-trade clothes horses, Trinidad/New York/London collective The Magic Numbers are an anomaly; a word-of-mouth phenomenon whose affable live shows have been compared to happy clappy religious experiences and whose music - an unfashionable blend of soft country pop with Fifties and Sixties inflections - is evidently more important to them than the intercession of style gurus and hairdressers. The "kids" are converted and the band's self-titled debut album The Magic Numbers may prove to be the most surprising success story of the year. Comprising two pairs of siblings, the Stodarts (singer and songwriter Romeo; the girth of a bear, the hair and beard of a friendly fairy-tale giant and the voice of a mouse; sister Michelle on bass, keyboards, vocals) and the Gannons (the equally hirsute Sean on drums; sister Angela on vocals, melodica and percussion) the familial ties shine through in the wholesome, harmonious nature of it all, from the skiffle of "Long Legs" and the upbeat Undertones-flavoured pop of "Love Me Like You" to the melting, dreamy teen frustration dialogues of "Love's a Game" and "I See You, You See Me". The Magic Numbers offers conclusive proof that maths isn't boring. --Kevin MaidmentSee all Product Description

If all you have heard is the single Forever Lost then be warned, it is one of the least imaginative songs here. It is simply four minutes of perfect jangly guitar pop with gorgeous melodies and harmonies. It hardly scratches the surface of what's here.
First track Morning's Eleven shows what the band are capable of. Its not just a great song, its a whole 5 minute Rock Opera complete with all the mood swings and time signature changes you would expect. But it aint Jim Steinman's latest over the top epic for Meatloaf. No, this group understand that less is more and they fuse The Velvet Underground and the Shangri Las to weave their magic. Oh there's plenty more thrown in the pot, from bar room Country and Western to 70's soul. Cook it up and what have we got? What's served up is something from further down the road Evan Dando was driving down when he wanted us to Come And Feel his Lemonheads. Mind you, he was never as good as this mob, who know how to make every note tell and vary each arrangement in eight different ways to bring every possibility out of it.
So, it time to meet Romeo (is that really his name?) Stoddard, honey monster of a lead singer, who is here to tell us how love done him wrong. On third track The Mule he's got it bad and he takes T Rex to Texas to lets us in on every last twist and turn of his agony. Recovering he plays with his girls affections hillbilly style on Long Legs.Read more ›
I love the lively and fun songs here. This is always great to play to cheer myself up. The lyrics are quite good but it is the melodies and harmonies that make this album stand out. The reason why I didnt give it 5 stars is because, sadly, I feel that the album begins to lull after the halfway mark. Whilst the first part is lively and full of fun and frolics, the latter part seems to drop into mediocrity with only occasional highlights.
This is still a must buy, if only to relieve the 60's whilst hearing something new, especially if you were never around in those days. Catchy tunes that will stick in your head and make you hum, whistle and smile all day. Rush out now to buy yourself a copy.
The effect of 2 boys and 2 girls, 2 brother-and-sister pairs, singing in 3-part-harmonies, is a brilliant feeling of closeness and authenticity. The backing accompaniments are the perfect settings for the unique and strong vocals to have their full impact. Tracks like 'Which Way to Happy', 'Love Me Like You' and 'I See You, You See Me' are nothing short of fantastic, catchy tunes, and the rest of the album never disappoints.
The Magic Numbers don't fit easily into a box, but the music they make is fantastic and very well worth a listen. Definitely not to be missed.
