8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 12th January 2015
“Bright Flight” is more of straight forward album compared to 1996 wonky Americana classic, “The Natural Bridge” and its follow up, the Stephen Malkmus assisted “American Water”. However, the seemingly tighter band, the pedal steel and the female backing vocals dotted around do make this a lovely audio experience. “Slow Education” opens the album and along with the qualities I’ve just mentioned has a lovely, almost sing-a-long chorus. Lyrically, like on previous albums, David Berman is on form. “Every thought is like a punch in the face, I’m like a rabbit freezing on a star” from the brilliant “Horseleg Swastikas” or “A kitten from Great Britain sleeps behind the drapes” From “Time Will Break the World”. The best track on here though is the catchy and countrified “Tennessee” which was chosen as a single.
