  • Summary: This is the second album for the quriky Scottish indie-pop duo of Colin MacIntyre and Alan Malloy.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 13 out of 14
  2. Negative: 0 out of 14
  1. As good as Loss was (and make no mistake, it was very, very good), Us improves on it in virtually every way.
  2. Us has a dynamism and vastness that makes Loss cower in its shadow.
  3. 80
    Probably one of the better pop recordings you'll hear in '03. [#58, p.98]
  4. This record is MacIntyre's admission that he is grown-up enough not to hide behind faux-depressoid stylings and fancy studio tricks.
  5. Us bristles with huge choruses and idiosyncratic lyrics, albeit suggesting that Pet Sounds is his record collection. [Apr 2003, p.111]
  6. Though Mull Historical Society is an act one could easily file under "pleasant-enough pop," at 13 tracks (plus a bonus disc!), MacIntyre's strictly 80bpm velvet-lined melancholia will test the patience of any Anglophile.

    By far the greatest soloist on the planet.
