4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, 1 Nov. 2011
This review is from: The Loudest Engine (Audio CD)
I'd ignore the BBC reviewer above as he is way off here.
Yes their first album was really rather exceptional (after I got over my initial flashback to aspects of Throwing Muses) and I must admit i was less taken with the second but this third effort is cracking.
It has charm, humour and lovely guitar work. There is also a certain amount of freedom to explore and Juanita Stein's voice is really rather blossoming with great self harmonisation and slanted delivery which draws in your ear. A couple of tracks see some near duet delivery with i assume) her brother guitarist - very slight shades of The Magic Numbers pop feel to these.
Overall, much of their original stealth and singular energy has been alloyed with greater musicianship and elegance. I'd be very keen to hear much of this live as their debut at latitude was a fantastic sunset experience.
For the unfamiliar, Into The Sun is a great launching point with near absurd squealing guitars and great percussive gusto.

1.0 out of 5 stars poor quality bookbinding, 23 Dec. 2010
I bought this interesting book as a christmas present and I was extremely disappointed at the substandard paper it was printed upon. It was little better than a recycled paper towel. The line-spacing and fonts used were mean and ugly respectively. Books, particularly non-fiction, should be produced to last decades not one read through.
