Customer Review

on 10 October 2006
WOW ! This the band and this is the album i've waited all year and over 100 CD's for.

A rich, colourful and varied tapestry of atmospheric sound perfectly married to real emotion and heart. It's like a mix of the Beach Boys, Mercury Rev, the Beatles (in places) and Echo and the Bunnymen all at their peak. No this album isn't perfect: the drums can be little abrasive plus there are times when I'd want to hear Matt's voice less embedded in the sound when listened from speakers (headphones are better), but the depth and width of this debut blows most others this year away IMHO.

For me, the album would have been perfect had it finished with what i consider the seminal "In the dark no-one can hear you sweat" lifted from their first E.P. "Work".

If this band and these songs aren't critically recognised, then i know nothing and i might as well give up posting.

Best debut album of the year, if not best album of the year. 5 STARS
