Top critical review
on 24 February 2017
Having loved there earlier stuff, and been masively disappointed by Mirage Rock, I initially gave this a swerve. However, having read several rave reviews, eg best album of 2016 (!!), I thought I would nonetheless give it a go. Having now played it four times I have to say that I am a bit underwhelmed. It all sounds very pretty, and you certainly couldn't mistake it for anybody else, but the trouble is that absolutely none of the songs are sticking in my head. When it is finished I can't remember a single track. Not unpleasant, but I don't think I'll be returning to it very often.
