6/10 Mike Staff review, 03 May 2012

This is Here We Go Magic's third album but my first exposure to them so I can't compare it to their previous stuff I'm afraid. Anyway, they've got Nigel Godrich twiddling the knobs on this one so what I've got going on in my ears right now is very slick indie pop with quite a full, melodic sound based around jangly guitars and gliding keyboards and smooth vocals. There are parts in here that remind me a little of Jeff Buckley in the guitar and vocal phrasing, but the textures are denser and more radio-friendly and tend to hang out somewhere in The National/Wild Beasts territory. Smooth and sensuous but also sometimes pretty bland and anonymous, with occasional forays into the Coldplay-AOR wasteland. On occasion, though, they delve into bolder '80s pop territory with excellent effect, particularly on the pulsating 'Make Up Your Mind' with its insistent krautrocky verses and stabbing 'Thriller' synth in the chorus, but the moments of excitement here are few and far between, with the band too often opting for a fairly safe journey through moody radio rock blandness. It's done with some detail and flair and is perfectly listenable but flashes of true inspiration seem scarce.
