    A return to form, then.

    They fare best on delicate, forlorn ballads like Walk The Backstairs Quiet and Epping Forest--tales of suburban longing which are brave enough to include some quite splendid guitar solos. [Jun 2011, p100]

    Hayman's production has resulted in a noticeable evolution in the band's sound. Unlike the off-roading experience of their previous albums, Beer In The Brakers is an often much smoother ride.

    There is still plenty to enjoy here, though, especially Little Surprise, which occupies a similar territory to Mystery Jets at their best. [Jun 2011, p.124]

    The problem with Beer in the Breakers isn't one of culture or slang so much as a narrator who is almost wholly forgettable--their stories are boring.

    It's identikit jangle so packed with perfectly poised personality that I find it hard to take it even vaguely seriously.

    Este grupo es impresionante, y, por suerte, muy productivos. Les he visto un par de veces en conciertos, uno en sala y otro en un festival, y han estado muy bien. David Tattersall es un virtuoso de la guitarra. El único pero que le pongo a este grupo es que puede sonar repetitivo en cuanto a melodías entre sus muchas canciones (muchas, pese a los pocos años desde que apareció su primer disco "oficial", Instant Coffee Baby) . Y este disco me ha gustado más que los dos anteriores, sin superar al primero. Aunque los considero todos muy buenos, la verdad. Muy recomendable. Expand
