    Not quite building on the dizzying heights of Nux Vomica, but nonetheless improving upon some its weakness, Sun Gangs is a much better recordNot quite building on the dizzying heights of Nux Vomica, but nonetheless improving upon some its weakness, Sun Gangs is a much better record than its reviews will account for. It's a little more droll and, well, chill, than NV, but it's much more tuneful and, while lacking the punch of "Jesus For The Jugular", the ease at which they mesmerize with opener "Sit Down By The Fire", closer "Begin Again" & the title track...there's quite a bit of magic here.

    Very disappointing opus after the Runaway Found, and Nux Vomica, both of which had something special about them, something that made the Very disappointing opus after the Runaway Found, and Nux Vomica, both of which had something special about them, something that made the Veils stand out from any crowd - was it the voice? the guitars? the choruses? the change of rythms? the creativity? the lyrics? Everything in Sun Gangs feels deja vu, and not needed at all - yet it's nice music. Am a big fan of the Veils, but disappointed here. I'll wait for album nb 4! Full Review »

    This band's gift for the melody shines on a diverse range of music on a single album.
