    The Brewis brothers may be at odds with the modern world, but in this stunningly realised double album, they've created the ultimate sanctuary.
  2. Measure can be described as being the metamorphosis that translates Field Music’s born again status. Ambitious as it sounds, it locks itself into a pop compendium, which has always been a strong suit in the past.
  3. And when the Brewis brothers bust out in full XTC-style guitar-pop mode on the surging “Effortlessly” and the hopeful “Share The Words,” the songs bloom all the brighter.

Their songs are moving and musical and reveal more and more development upon repeated listening. Their Measure CD is also wonderfully recorded and a treat to listen to on headphones. Full Review »
