  • Summary: The six-piece Glaswegian indie-pop band really did leave the country, recording this third full-length with producer Jari Haapalainen (The Concretes) in Sweden.

  1. A gorgeous pop album, to say the least. [#14]
  2. While the songs are undeniably beautiful and even fun, the music provides a vital balance to the album's substantial thematic heft, and it's that combination that makes Let's Get Out Of This Country one of the year's best pop albums.
  3. 88
    Pure and unabashed pop bliss. [#21, p.102]
  4. Deeply romantic and just as melancholy.
  5. The band's finest yeat, with 10 succinct tunes that artfully blend the musical signifiers of the '60s with clever songwriting. [Aug 2006, p.87]
  6. An album full of majestic pop tunes in their absolute truest form.
  7. Yet for all its surface appeal, the record has a curiously soulless quality, a lack of vulnerability and humanity that undercuts most of its songs.
