Customer Review

on 3 November 2002
I really like Gomez. There's something irrisistable about a home-grown band that critics dislike, but still play great music in spite of it. So when I found they'd released another album, and that the reviewers had sneered at it long and hard, I desperately, desperately, wanted to really like it just as much as I really liked every other Gomez release so far.
I wasn't disappointed.
"Shot Shot" is well and away the best stop-and-start Britpop you are likely to hear this year; "In Our Gun" pulls off the old SFA trick of melding supposedly unmixable music genres seamlessly, as well as giving Dubya a good ribbing; "Ping One Down", "Sound of Sounds", "1000 Times", "Rex Kramer", well...I'll leave those for you to find out about. One thing I've always enjoyed about Gomez is the way in which they continuously change their sound to suit the occasion. Just listen to "Ping One Down", and then melt away as the keyboard madness opens up to the mellow strings of "1000 Times". Never get tired of it.
There are a couple of longeurs, but if anything, they tend to highlight the brilliance of the rest of the album: - "Drench" can be a bit annoying, although it is redeemed by the quirky guitar in the middle. "Ruff Stuff"s archaic keyboard noise pulls it down a bit. Otherwise, excellent, excellent album. Don't listen to the critics! Buy it and make up your own mind!
