I don't know what is missing from this new Belle & Sebastian album; it's certainly not the contemplative monochrome photograph on the sleeve artwork, the familiar font or the narrative songs but even though it may look like all the albums that have gone before it most assuredly isn't. However this is not because B&S have made giant musical leaps forward and from my previous statement obviously haven't continued to ply their craft. What seems to have happened - and far worse the bowels of mediocrity seem to have engulfed them. Is it just me who sees a collaboration between B&S and Norah Jones bizarre or maybe just ironic? The end product is just tame, as is most of the album.

It's the first Belle & Sebastian album that I've not been able to distinguish one song from another; there are no real stand out tracks. I wasn't really fussed about reaching the end of the record and when I did I certainly did hit play again. Having seen the band live on a number of occasions and owning all their other records this shows real lack of effort and is thorough disappointment.
