This is one of those albums that makes you want to wake up extra early every day to listen to. Every song is drenched in heartfelt strings and guitar hooks that would make Wilson swoon. Pernice's smokey vocals make the tunes slightly more offbeat that most chart fodder, but this should not detract from the album's overall splendour. A potential karaoke classic.

I bought this album in mid-January, which was perhaps the wrong time of year, since it simply oozes blissful summertime vibes. Glorious tunes, harmonies, jangly guitars, breathy vocals... I'm thinking of changing into my shorts when I get home.

Lovely plaintive songs in a lush, harmonious background. A little over produced with Joe Pernice's vocals a little too far back in the mix for my liking makes it sometimes sound a bit samey (they should check out how their contemporary, Ryan Adams, mixes things up for clarity). Those gripes apart World Won't End is a beautiful, summery album....

The Pernice brothers have made some of the most beautiful, affecting music of recent times. Head brother, Joe Pernice's voice evokes thoughts of camels, badgers and many other types of fauna... the songs themselves are quite wonderful, matched by the lavish production, shockingly reminiscent of twelve young deer grazing at the roadside.
In a word: erudite.

At last, a Joe Pernice album that's a joy from start to end. Recognisably the follow-up to 1998's Overcome By Happiness, although Joe has recorded two albums under other names in the interim (Chappaquiddick Skyline and Big Tobacco), The World Won't End retains the strings and lustrous melancholy of the first Brothers album, but adds a gutsier sound that gives the minor chords something more substantial to offset. We're a long way from the ennervating alt.country mopings of Scud Mountain Boys here - the single, 7.30, and standout track Flaming Wreck are indicative of a power-pop approach that requires no sympathy for America's folksiness.
Not that this is a Green Day album, mind. Some of the tracks wouldn't sound out of place on Overcome By Happiness. And there's the obligatory (in Perniceland, at any rate) acoustic track at the end - only this one, Cronulla Breakdown, is peformed with a buoyancy that makes it one of the best things on the album. But knowing the tenderness is an option, rather than all that's in stock, makes all the difference.
Melodic, moving and smart, this has enough crunch to make the Pernices' soft centres more digestible than ever before. In fact, delicious. (Oh, and smashing jumper, Joe.)

Another glorious slice of downbeat pop heaven from the pen of Joe Pernice.

... well, BRYTE SIDE is one of best pop songs ever, not more, not less. The rest is blissful listening experience, one of the peaks of end 20th century pop.
