I had been quite looking forward to listening to this album - catchy, easily likeable songs for long awaited summer days. Imagine my towering disappointment - the songs are there, but when I first put it on I had to check all the connections on my HiFi to see what was wrong - surely it couldn't be the CD?? Sibilants were really distorted and some of the layers in the music sounded as though they had been severely compressed - the aural equivalent of watching a VHS film on a large screen hi def telly. It makes the whole thing nearly unlistenable. Some tracks are worse than others but I don't kow if all are - I haven't managed to listen to all of it. Question: is it just a duff CD ( can such a thing even exist? ) - google consensus is astonishingly, no: other fair people have also had to take their ears out after listening to this shamefully poorly mastered effort. I love my music and do have a nice system to play it on, so maybe others can't hear the deficiencies so clearly - but I can even hear them on my ipod. Really like the music - have never been so let down by an album's sound quality.

Review is from both the 11 track 2x12" LP (wonderful 220 gm vinyl & sleeves) & the standard CD versions. It's been a long wait for this (after more than a year & 3 singles). A female Bee Gees somehow springs to mind but there are many other styles as they straddle the current crop of other indie female led acts like The Jezabels, Daughter, Ms Mr, Warpaint, Au Revoir Simone, Anna Calvi etc. Track by track then here goes. 'Falling' heard many times before & 3rd single (10" pink vinyl :o) enormous, catchy & positive vibes. 'Forever' 1st single & their anthem of stop start magic with fine guitar & vocals by Danielle. 'The Wire' after a non inspiring first listen really gets to grow - Alana's vocal stands out. 'If I Could Change Your Mind' with earnest 80s style keyboards & rhythm this is desperate & shows genuine emotion. 'Honey & I' nice funky guitar plus Danielle's turning twisting soulful delivery is one of the album's best. 'Don't Save Me' (white 10" vinyl 2nd single) is really catchy "so baby, don't save me - if your love isn't strong" and creates a strong place here. 'Days Are Gone' title track & a fine steady arresting piece with great vocals (Alana's main lead though they all take turns) & Danielle doing the beautiful high vocal bits - probably the strongest new track here & captures the mood of the album as they reflect back on lost love, lost youth & mistakes made - incredible vocals by our trio. 'My Song 5' sort of Destiny's Child meets J.Lo is quite strange & is a grinding funk type outing with some heavy bass (least favourite here though). 'Go Slow' almost their anthem & one of the flips from their 1st single contains wonderful vocal gymnastics over the slow stop start funk & ricocheting beats "I'll be hurting from your heat heat heat heat....". 'Let Me Go' with Danielle then Este & brilliant live but it also works wonderfully here "let me go.....you know I'm not one for leaving". Final blast is 'Running If You Call My Name' with as always their impressive vocals buzzing around plus a fine production - sparse enough such that the beat & soul blends. Other than one slightly weak offering, plus better would have been 100% usage of real drums, then this is an excellent outing. Talent personified for a brilliant blend of indie, nu-folk, 80s pop, 90s r&b, 60s/70s harmonies, guitar pyrotechnics & possibly the album of 2013. Phenomenal.
