'Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant' is the fourth record by twee/indie pop band Belle & Sebastian. It's notable for featuring lead vocals from artists other than Stuart Murdoch, something that was only occasionally incorporated on predecessor 'The Boy WIth The Arab Strap'. It brings in more orchestral elements, too, relying on a proper string section.

Though B&S have definitely carved a niche into popular music with their intelligent, yet vibrant and playful sound, they continue to break ahead into all the nooks and crannies of their style to give us something wonderful to fall in love with... with each and every album. "Fold Your Hands..." is simply another strong (I say strongest!) example of how one band's initiative is too pure and precise to be broken. I think it's a great CD to listen during winter time. It would be a perfect Christmas present for anyone who loves sad music and rock and roll oldies.
