8/10 Brian Staff review, 08 November 2007
The Answering Machine up the production ante by sounding like they've been caressed by a top studio sleazebag in return for their soul. The latest hopefuls on the stately and frequently awful Regal label conjure up a rather forgettable but beautifully executed polished indie tune, 'Lightbulbs' that so wants to be legendary and anthemic but could just be by any one of 100 bands. You know the score, Bloc Party style guitars, vacuous lyrics with oh-so familiar ad-libs, air punching drums and a slippery bass line. They sure know how to play but this tune betrays any original ideas for thee ears and could easily have come out anytime in the last 3 years such is it's lack of vision. Sorry but this is one for the indie die hards....BUT then the B-side stumps me by being a tender, understated beauty called "Decadent", this time with a crisp and sweet female vocal that would appeal to fans of The Sundays, all gently chiming guitar & complementary drum machine. The contrast between the two songs is so pronounced, it honestly sounds like two different bands. Worth yer purchase for the dreamy 2nd side alone.
