6/10 Phil Staff review, 20 May 2010

I accidentally wrote baby You're Bored then as a bit of a Freudian slip. Oops. Though it best to change it but I like to document my mistakes. Anyway they'e recruited a new singer called Dina Bankole who was recruited via contest on a website. Is Stuart Murdoch turning into the next Simon Cowell or perhaps it's more Andrew Lloyd Webber (who I just cocked had a pretty flash website and whoever designed it wisely left his face off). Anyway Baby You're Blind is a soul pop number with a strange guitar noise in the background which is making me think of Hot Chocolate (the band...). This is pretty commercial and it's a decent tune though It ain't really my kind of thing I can quite happily have it on in the background while I'm arguing with Brian for the 15th time in the same day. Actually the more it's on the more I'm thinking it's OK.... the chorus is infuriatingly catchy and the trumpets are tempting. I don't even know what that means... the trumpets are tempting... what a fucking idiot I am.


10/10 Kristen Customer review, 23rd June 2010

First of all, talk about Freudian slips, the official reviewer says "I just cocked" Simon Cowell's web site...

This song is excellent; it has melodic references to the (far inferior) track "Stills" and a catchy sound seemingly ripped from Belle and Sebastian's "Your Cover's Blown" (down to the telephone dialogue intro), but remains its own song, a cleverly written ode to the boy who probably won't break up with his current steady-- "Take a boy like you, only 22, already caught for life."

The singer, Linnea Jönsson, is soulful and skillful without sounding like a Britain's Got Talent! contestant (I wish I could say the same of the group's previous effort, a lame karaoke-sounding cover of "Funny Little Frog" by the dubiously talented Brittany Stallings).

It seems like Stuart Murdoch's true calling is to write love letters for boys, from girls.
