    Indie at its best. Shame to those who think otherwise. Feel-good music with vocals ala Elliott Smith.

  1. This may not be their best offering, but it's a truly fine record that offers plenty in the way of satisfaction.
  2. Fundamentally, 'The Sword Of God' is a record that fumbles desperately at the door of greatness but can't quite get the key to fit. It tries hard, it's got some excellent songs on it, but it's just slightly too smarmy for its own good.
  3. The odd combination of Coomes' rinky-dink keyboards and Weiss' booming beat is scrappy, stripped-down and still charmingly unlike anything else out there.
