    Something in them seems to have been exorcised by the change of scene, because Twist Again, BoW's third album, is a calmer, more controlled affair than either of its predecessors.

    In this more restrained setting, Bodies of Water aren't quite as commanding or charming, but they compensate with more confident, nuanced songs that incorporate elements of showtunes, disco, and folk, plus mariachi fanfares and hallelujah choruses.

    While those who miss the band's old orchestral pop sound may cavil, Twist Again represents the opening of a promising new path for Bodies of Water.

    There's all sorts of other excursions as well; the benefits of having a home studio to get lost in.

    All the work went into the craft rather than the songs themselves. What's lacking are memorable melodies: the very thing one needs to make the crisp pop production perfected in the '60s sparkle like new.

    It's a wonderful return for the much-underappreciated band.

    Track by track, these are nuggets of brilliance. As a whole, it's baffingly eclectic. [Sept. 2011, p. 106]
