And The Glass Handed Kites (Expanded) by Mew

The Danish band who straddle arena rock and indie pop once released this really great record called 'And The Glass Handed Kites', and it was dreamy: it veered towards the prog side of alt-rock but swung mostly with its heart. Reissued for its 15th anniversary and expanded to include ten additional tracks.

8/10 Jack 14th April 2016

Although their music is difficult to categorise, I can assure you that their sound is strangely uplifting and stealthily addictive. Well, some may call this art-rock, others may call it alt-prog, and still others may just call it alternative rock. Whatever you call it, it is definitely both fresh and refreshing. I think all the songs here are interesting in themselves--the chords surprise and are more thought out then in most guitar bands. But it is that shimmering Bloody Valentine glow worm that threads this album together--and makes it work.
