9/10 Brian Staff review, 14 January 2010
That beguiling bunch These New Puritans are back with a new Graham Sutton produced opus that is already dividing the office, always a good sign! After the decidedly schizophrenic 'We Want War', i'm left unsure what to expect. The stark rhythmic attack & relentless barked mantras of their debut seems to have evolved into something a little more elegant & considered on 'Hidden', involving lots of hypnotic, deep percussion and dense, claustrophobic electronics. The singer guy Jack Barnett still sounds like he's singing in Swell Maps or Television Personalities half the time which lends this sleek, weird future pop of theirs a rather endearing, homely edge. There's plenty o' quirkiness & left-field classical flourishes paddling amongst the sparse post-grime/dancehall inspired beats, these jarring (but hugely compulsive) swaying rhythms topped with some curious segments of vocal manipulation that has me considering them the only true UK answer to NY's fine tripped out mentalists Gang Gang Dance. So...still challenging, still sticking proudly to a minimalist agenda that blows the majority of hoary UK rock and drab indie right out of the water. Ex-Bark Psychosis don Sutton has done a mighty job on the production here, crisp, edgy & massively atmospheric, all the hallmarks that made their debut great are present & correct, they've just shifted it all a bit sideways. Thoroughly excellent!
