A thing of beauty - highly recommended,
This review is from: Reading Writing And Arithmetic (Audio CD)
Far and away the Sundays' strongest and most consistent album, "Reading, Writing and Arithmetic" is a virtually flawless piece of indie heaven.
Harriet Wheeler's petulant, little girl vocals perfectly suit the mood, the arrangements are thoughtful and melodic and the playing understated but superb. Anyone wishing to learn the art of tasteful rhythm guitar should have this in their collection.
Every song is beautifully crafted, and the album as a whole has a lovely flow and feel. There's something very "young" about the atmosphere this record evokes, and I find it irresistible. I've been listening to this album regularly since it was first released and it sounds just as fresh as ever.
Utterly wonderful. Sadly nothing else they did was quite as good.
