8/10 Brian Staff review, 15 May 2008
There was a day when I had hair & a love for jangly, sad songs written by shy, lovelorn men from the North. Well, The Wedding Present are no more unless you count The Divorce Cinerama and all that's left of that ilk round these parts is The Lodger, a band I can't quite get my my fat face around. 'Life is Sweet' has lots of requisite things to make a good sophomore album but just sounds a little limp to me. Fey vocals over a kinda pastiche of post Sarah/B&S jangle pop, lovingly produced and all that but the songs leave no impact on my heart. If you dig the current scene and aren't a bitter, jaded old sod like me then these flighty, twee tunes will no doubt touch you. They sure know how to write a good, tight number and everything's in place.....but there's summat important missing from this Leeds 3 piece. The urgency of the 1st couple of singles crops up in 'The Conversation' but maybe my time loving this style of indie pop is past. Much preferred the Wave Pictures album. This is more akin to The Boyfriends and those meek and mild alternative strummers. For fans of Milky Wimpshake possibly?
