The new Tunng album is a real winner. Not only does it have some amazingly heartfelt songs on it, but also it can provide seconds of double entendre related entertainment.

8/10 Dave Staff review, 26 February 2010
The new Tunng album is a real winner. Not only does it have some amazingly heartfelt songs on it, but also it can provide seconds of double entendre related entertainment. Y'know, "Can I stick this Tunng somewhere..." or "Can I stick this Tunng in your box..?" etc. This album is rich with ideas and emotion. Some of the songs have a slightly Wicker Man soundtrack feel while other songs have a more contemporary vibe. My personal favourites on this album are the ones with potent imagery like the delightful "October". Or "Shashimi" with its "Don't lead her a-stray" refrain. The song "By Dusk They Were In The City" with its A-Ha(?!) referencing is a miserablist classic. It envelopes you like a malaise filled cloud. This album comes with a bonus CD,with remixes by luminaries like Max Tundra and the Memory Band. I've not had the chance of hearing the remix CD yet, but Id say its probably worth a listen.

6/10 Richard Stephen Pievaitis Customer review, 8th July 2010

hello ,whilst this is a good album,it is not the best tunng album by far.here because of the departure of sam genders,the music and lyrcis take amuch "happier "alsmost summery vibe.

not a bad thing overall,but not what i have become to expect from tunng,it is almost commercial folk/pop in places,quite palatable in small doses but i did find that by half-time i was much too distracted and found my mind attention span wandering.this as never happened with previous tunng albums ever,so the only change that i can observe is the departure of genders low key,moeosw voice and excellent guitar work.

mike lindsey has obviously taken over the main songwriting role and overall captains helm,but we have much much more female vocals through out,but for some reason it does not work.normally with folk music i adore the female vocal range but i cannot place my finger on why it does not here.i find the chorus vocal arragements a tad on the twee side,almost childish in places.

i am all for progression  but unlike most other reviewers of the album,i cannot find myself playing it over and over as i have done with all previous tunng albums.

so,not my favourite tunng album and i would advise anyone new to the band to start right at the beginning and work forwards,see for yourself what i am saying here,bring back sam ,the electronica,the deep lyrical themes and reverse the move towards lightweight folk/pop,please.
