8/10 Clinton Staff review, 03 September 2010

Ideally you want your favourite bands to release a record every three or four years. You want them to be sweating over it a little bit. Anything over that (unless you are The Blue Nile) starts to become a bit of a worry. Conversely its also a concern if too many records come out too quickly. Only last October The Clientele delivered 'Bonfires on the Heath' which was mostly great. Could they really come up with something as good in less than a year? Well 'Minotaur' is promoted as a mini album, despite having 8 tracks and kind of carries on where 'Bonfires...' left off - gorgeous 60's style songs muddled at times with over fussy arrangements. A return to the dusty simplicity of the debut 'Suburban Light' or the swooning string arrangements of 2005's high water mark 'Strange Geometry' wouldn't go amiss but in the meantime this is another decent Clientele album full of autumnal regret, chiming guitars, poetic lyrics with musical nods to The Zombies, Love, Left Banke, Belle and Sebastian.
