    The songs just have a bit more sonic depth and shine, and the new orchestral embellishments are so unobtrusive you barely notice them.

    High Noon may not necessarily break through the American market, but is worth a listen for its consistently catchy Canadian pop rock.

    High Noon is almost that special of an album, and, despite some minor inherent weaknesses, this is definitely one to purchase and check out.

    High Noon showcases Arkells' lofty ambitions, and while it might not be their defining record it's another intriguing step in their evolution.

    In the end, it's clear that the Arkells want to be a big band and they've put themselves out there in a big way with High Noon.
