Eclectic isn't the word!,
This review is from: Make This Your Own (Audio CD)
As a die-hard I was more than eager to overlook shortcomings in this album. My delight that Didz' departure didn't break them up would carry me through. NME gave it 4, Q didn't like it either, but then they gave See This Through... a 2/5. I din't care, I bought it on two formats anyway.
It's a real grower. It seems kinda confused on first listen, I loved their balls-out debut, and their Nine Inch Nailsy follow up, but this had songs that sound like Ian Broudie, Tears For Fears, Gorillaz (not kidding); I didn't know how to feel. That passed quick enough! It's great. They have three different vocalists and obviously more imputs, it sounds like a compilation kinda... To me, Ben's voice was their most distinctive feature and I was annoyed when I heard Waiting Game. It works, though. Highlight? "Head" is a chooooooooooooon!!!! Listen 3 times and try to walk away giving it 4/10.
