  1. The Irish quartet holds up its end with an album of melodically memorable and inventively arranged songs, most clocking in at more than five minutes and massaging listeners with a wash of keyboard and guitar textures.
  2. The rest of Blue Lights on the Runway is duller than 'The Great Defector;' most of it sounds like warmed-over Coldplay.
  3. Bell X1 has found an absorbing but unshaven sound, set apart by ease and experimentation and yet inevitably spoiled by them.
