    The album is full of straightforward and jangly guitar pop, full of hooks and production turns that would feel at home on mixtapes of early-'90s underground alternative acts, the likes of which Pritchard himself belonged to and came up with.

    If you’re looking for that next hooky, guitar-pop record you could do a lot worse than this.

    A Trip to the Coast his first album for five years, is full of the kind of sweet, slightly off-kilter songcraft and guitar pop that could result if, say, Lloyd Cole and Robyn Hitchcock were forced to breed.

    A Trip to the Coast is the welcome return of a familiar form of hooky, melodic minor scale pop balladry.

    Pritchard is at his self-deprecatory best on the witty but barbed break-up song Yeah Yeah Girl, while producer/guitarist Tim Bradshaw deserves credit for so fearlessly jettisoning the indie comfort blanket on the stylish, Chris Isaak-esque noir of Posters.
