It was a very wise move to open this eponymous debut with the quietly disturbing `Kid Gloves'. All its talk of `touching me', driving guitars and considered mew of a vocal create an affecting and competent opening. Elsewhere, sadly, the effect is less successful and firmly broaches wet nothingness; see `Ghost', `Stephen' and `Easy'. `Firecracker' provides hope. It is a lively indie-rock stomper and borrows one of Arcade Fire's crescendos. However, this promise is short-lived, and soon the listen returns to earnest but light, unadventurous indie schmindie rock-pop. `Blood Red Shoes' ends the album on a relative high, nodding agreeably, but is nowhere near as exciting as the band of the same name; Voxtrot are forever to be dullish also-rans (see Official Secrets Act). Packaging an album with a credible opener shows smarts but it counts for little when there is little in terms of substance to back it up.

Everything you should expect from a Voxtrot album. If you have ever heard a voxtrot song their standard is the same every song in this album.

People just have no taste. There should be many, many more.

Anyway, as said before... if you've heard Voxtrot before and enjoyed them, you'll enjoy this. Stand out track for me is - Kid Gloves.

A really solid album. Shame they are no more.
