5.0 out of 5 stars stars, the brightest stars, in wonderfully clear skies, 9 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: North (Audio CD)
Alright so i'm biased, i have a soft spot for female voices this good, and male voices with unbridalled emotion, and the interweaving of the two vocalists is put together so perfectly, how do they know which songs are going to work with one, or the other, or both? Such intuition runs through more intriguing narratives and the music too. This is album no.6 by my reckoning and there's no saminess, no two songs that you would say they've done before, updated, you know? I love that freshness with these songs. It's such a treat when a band you adore still blesses you with originality. I so want to hug them all, really!

5.0 out of 5 stars a triumph for me, man, mew and you, 28 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: No More Stories (Audio CD)
it's, quite simply, perfect... i love everything that they've done before very much indeedy of course but this seems to me to be more of a complete piece of work and i love that in an album, i want to listen to the whole thing rather than dip in and out of bits. to me it's most similar to A Triumph For Man in that there's lots of wonderful songs without any being significantly better, or worse, and the standard is massively high. I felt "Kites" peaked and troughed quite a lot and I rarely got right through it without wanting to listen to the earlier tracks again.

I've had a good half dozen listens and everything's become so very catchy. "sometimes life isn't easy" was the most immediate track for me... i love the cacophony at the start of that and then the housey piano is excellent, and then it's over. sounds like it should go on for ages but the (relatively) shortness of it makes it so much better! absolutley adore "silas the magic car", "cartoons and the macrame wounds", "hawaii", "vaccine", and "tricks" too. they work so very well. jonas's voice is as perfectly sad as ever, some blissfully beautiful parts throughout. i think it's silas's masterpiece, to date! and the songs just work so well, can't wait to see it live.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow, it's wonderful!, 5 Dec. 2000
This review is from: A Week Away (Audio CD)
With so many excellent songs this album is on repeat play at the moment. The catchy commercial title track, Sweeping The Nation & We're Going Out are wrapped around feel good songs like Isn't It Great to be Alive and indie classics It Won't Be Long Now. Bringing pop, indie guitar and some wonderful keyboards and backing vocals together in perfection. Shirley's voice is so clear and the lyrics so poignant it's impossible not to relate to every song. Just a wonderful album!
