6/10 Brian Staff review, 02 February 2012
The Schnausser eh? He's back is Uncle Ulrich and his slippers and pipe Guthrie-isms are as tranquil and balmy as ever. Making the bridge between ethereal shoegazing moodscapes and shimmering post Cafe Del Mar tranquility more sturdy underfoot, his work in the field of glistening cyclical chillout is not to be underestimated. Here he plays footsie with some geezer who was in the bafflingly popular Engineers (still better than Editors, at least they did some bloody graft ha ha) and the result is something akin to taking a shower under a warm waterfall with butterflies flickering round your private bits. Or Boards of Canada with all the interesting bits taken out and replaced with the gusset of Enya's perfumed undercrackers. It's all really pretty and lullaby-esque but somewhat suffocating and easygoing for a grizzled dangerhorse such as myself. He always was terribly popular mind and I'm thinking this simpering mind-massage may well appease his rabid fanbase as he doesn't exactly flood the market with this sentimental airy twinkly guff.
