    Guitar pop at its most ecstatic. [Apr 2006, p.113]
  3. Some of the sonic twists and turns that Delays pull on You See Colours--the multi-tracked vocals, the airy guitars, the pulsing synths--are jaw-dropping.
  4. Lighter, brighter and yes, more colourful than its predecessor.
  5. While debut album 'Faded Seaside Glamour' suffered from a mild dose of ADD, sprawling and meandering into atmospheric noodling between its smatter of acid-in-your-candyfloss pop hits, with 'You See Colours' Gilbert has sharpened his pop stiletto blade.
  6. Nothing is filler, per se, but some of the more trad Britpop numbers are a bit of a comedown between the obvious standouts.

First time I heard the lead singer, I thought he was a woman. Which makes the lyrics a bit off-putting. But the songs are really good. Full Review »
