The second record by Joe Pernice's bright-eyed neo-country troupe The Pernice Brothers, The World Won't End is an album that tackles themes of magnificent love, desperate frustration and spirit-mangling depression. This is far from an extended misery-tract, though; well-versed in the canon of Bacharach, Wilson and Big Star, Pernice has always revelled in loosing the most difficult of emotions into a rolling meadow of summertime pop. These 11 tracks are wrapped up in a gorgeous whirl of pedal steel, violin and cello that's elegant, cathartic and--best of all--really nice to listen to when the sun's out. "Our Time Has Passed" mulls painfully over the nostalgic memories of a dead love affair: "There's a box I still can't open/ There's a name that hurts to say/ I fall in love with the way I'm shaking/ In a crowd I think I see your face". "Working Girl (Sunlight Shines)", meanwhile, is a brief but beautifully observed vignette of a young temp stuck in a dead-end job, left "contemplating suicide or a graduate degree". Throughout, though, Pernice's sympathetic vocal, full of hope and purity, turn such empty impasses into a celebration of humanity. The message of The World Won't End? Simply, that life goes on. --Louis Pattison

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.
