Just picked it up at the weekend. When we saw them live at ATP a couple of years ago I was vaguely worried they were gonna go down an early-Verve, wibbly reverb dream hole and forget to take any tunes with them. They kind of have, except that they've done it really well; instead of nothing but twisty/repetitive guitar lines, they've deployed brass really cleverly. It's a really lovely record to doze to on a Sunday afternoon when you're exhausted. And I mean that absolutely as a compliment. Looking forward to unraveling it a bit more. But not too much.
