    Assured, confident, and infectious, Wait For Something To Happen sees a band developing both as musicians and songwriters while still retaining what made them great in the first place.

    In songs about getting swept up by infatuation the music sounds like a suddenly shared, irresistible impulse.

    [A] likeable, if light, follow-up.

    No one’s going to herald Waiting For Something To Happen as a great leap forward, but there’s a subtle refinement in approach happening for the attentive of ear.

    Originality isn’t always the most important criterion in music like this. Familiar, nostalgic sounds can please just as much, as they do here.

    Aside from a few bright spots, such as the long-gestating single “Teenage”, nothing on Waiting for Something to Happen really sticks on repeated listens.
