By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 31 May 2011
Format: Audio CD
Architecture In Helsinki do not come from Finland. They
are an Australian ensemble who are described as having
"cult" status in their homeland. This, despite it being
their fourth album, is my first encounter with the band
and the experience has been an entirely pleasant one.

The prevailing mood of 'Moment Bends' is, on the whole,
upbeat and light of spirit. Essentially what we hear here
(here here!) is sparkling electronic pop; all catchy tunes,
bouncy beats and pretty vocals. 'W.O.W.' is a wonderful
example of the band's capacity to take a simple melodic
idea and run with it. The harmonies are delightful; the
pulsing rhythm addictive.

Other highlights would have to include : jolly singalong
track 'Desert Island', which brought early Erasure to mind
for more than a moment; the bouncy, bumptious and very
danceable 'That Beep', which nods and winks blissfully back
to its 80's forebears and the strangely soulful stripped-down
beauty of final track 'B4 3D' (the album's loveliest invention).

Another recording to add to a sun-filled soundtrack for Summer 2011.

First time I have heard their work and purchased the CD of the back of listening to one of their tracks online. Not disappointed, love the album, a great mix and a welcome addition to the collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars 80s-infused pop pleasure with some soulful side steps into the present 16 Jan. 2012
By nameless - Published on

There's a good chance if you're a child of the 80s, you will really really like _Moment Bends_, an album whose first song merges a little bit of Wham with a little bit of Matthew Wilder. Going nostalgic like it's done here is kind of extra nice, whether it's on the opener "Desert Island," the Prince/Paisley Park pop sounds of "Denial Style" or the Culture Club-infused "Sleep Talkin'."

But there's also something for those with more modern tastes, especially on tracks like "Escapee" (sounding eerily like Passion Pit), "That Beep" (highly addictive and very danceable, reminiscent of No Doubt if you merged them with The Bangles) and "B43D" (Lenny Kravitz meets Gnarls Barkley.)

With the exception of "Contact High" (too Owl City-like for me) I truly love every track on _Moment Bends_ and put the whole album onto my iPod, something that doesn't always happen in the piecemeal digital music world we live in right now. If you like albums that make you smile and your feet move a little bit faster, you just have to check this out!:)
5.0 out of 5 stars LONG LIVE THE 80s!!! 1 Mar. 2013

These folks are true musicians. Very different from their previous album but I embrace the evolution. Go and search "Contact High Acoustic Live" on YouTube and you will see how talented they are when outside of a studio using bare instruments on the street without any amps. "That Beep" makes me want to do the Robot. The only song I don't really care for is the last, "B4 3D." Ten out of eleven is pretty solid!

This album is mellow in comparison to their other work. At first I didn't like it but of course it grew on me and I love it like all the rest! Beautiful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Audio Crack 4 Aug. 2011
By Natalie - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
You'll feel embarrassed for liking this for about 30 seconds, before that feeling dissolves into unhinged glee. I definitely had a WTF moment when I heard the opening bits of the first track, "Desert Island", followed by a mild panic attack, thinking that AiH had ditched everything I liked them for. Luckily, by the end of "Desert Island" I was already sold. By "Yr Go To", I had a huge grin on my face, heart pounding in my throat. I love it when a band can still shock and excite me. It would be easy to dismiss Moment Bends as some light pop, and there's definitely heaps of immediate stuff on it but a thousand extra layers that I know will grow gradually the more time you give it.
