    It's not an overall disaster, it's certainly never dull, and there's plenty to keep the loyalists happy. [No. 100, p.58]

    Frontman Bobby Gillespie’s lyrics still don’t sound as effortlessly cool as his breathy delivery (see Culturecide), but it feels like the band is back on the pulse of something.

    What starts out as inviting, quickly becomes a bit irritating and ends up overwhelmingly draining and drab if tackled all at once.

    There’s too much telling and not enough showing across More Light‘s 70 minutes.
  5. It's seldom terrible. And seldom does much to persuade you that it wouldn't be a better idea to cut out the middle man and listen to Gillespie's old LPs instead.

    With its strong opening and ending, there's a distinct sag in the middle--More Light is a very long album--and Bobby Gillespie's lyrics still read like he's been playing with his urban apocalypse fridge magnets.
