    What's great about English Little League very much preaches to the choir. But it's nevertheless clear this crew is ready to welcome some new converts once more. [No. 98, p.51]

    GBV's only LP of 2013 and it's a good'un. [Jun 2013, p.95]

    English Little League is a red wheelbarrow full of awesome.

    English Little League is decidedly overstuffed at 17 songs, and the one-off sketches that were somehow endearing on albums like Bee Thousand and Alien Lanes come off as simply filler here. Still, it remains a pleasure to hear GBV doing what it does best: cranking out song after song.

    So there we have it, more of the recent same and sufficiently good enough to keep the good ship GBV sailing onwards. However, a little more variety and a few more Tobin Sprout songs next time around would certainly help to prevent any risk of drifting into more ponderous waters.

    It's patchy, but when English Little League is good, it's great.

    Triumphant as the return itself has been, the records themselves have really only skirted triumph. English Little League is no different.
