    The songs so consistently mine the same material that it starts feeling like a portrait of our era as a deeply sad one, where lost souls abound.

    Hit the Waves is both the darkest and the glossiest Mary Onettes record to date. That tension between style and content creates a few engaging moments, but doesn’t offer much for listeners who haven’t already subscribed to the band’s ’80s rehash.

    This is an album that, as elegant and refined as it is, will be forgotten about soon enough. That’s not to say it doesn’t deserve to be extolled for the hard work alone.

    Hit The Waves offers little in way of innovation, an unthreatening album to Sigur Ros and The Knife’s releases later this year, but The Mary Onettes are perfectly happy to look backwards.

Pretty boring album overall and complete change of style from the previous album. Full Review »
