    May not be their most ambitious album, but it's one of their finest. [July 2011, p. 113]

    Gomez finally makes peace with the fact that it's a pop band that loves to jam and a jam band that loves to write pop songs.

    The music in their latest release, Whatever's On Your Mind, stays on a pop path that's decorated with tinges of folk, blues, electronic, and whatever else they feel like throwing in.

    The title of Gomez's seventh studio album reflects the low-key, easy-flowing attitude these boyish Brits have maintained since winning the U.K.'s coveted Mercury Prize with their 1998 debut.

    The five-strong troupe play fast and loose with the same elements that have served them so well across the last decade.

    There's a difference between appealing to a broad audience and pandering to one, and that difference is having some sense of artistic soul. This has neither.

    Ignore the negative reviews. This is a fine album. Perhaps not the deepest or most high minded, but many critics don't have the proper appreciation for how difficult it is to make a catchy pop song that holds up over time. Fortunately for us, Gomez is very good at it. Collapse
