I Wanna Write A Message To You Every Day At 10 o’clock In The Evening

October 19, 2010

Wow. I really like this CD.

It isn’t as good as their early work (though, I don’t think anything ever will be), but it’s an improvement on their previous album. Not that the other one was that bad, just that it was too much of a departure of their classic sound.

The only real problem with this album is that it’s too much of a group effort. While it’s still Stuart who’s doing all the writing, everyone sings. So this is some weird Arcade Fire/Mamas and The Papas kinda album. Which in itself isn’t bad, but as a Belle & Sebastian album?

As a whole though, it’s very good. Some songs take a bit of time to really stand out, and I’m sure as time goes on more songs will do so. But for now, watch out Laura Veirs – you have some company at the top of my list (though, I’ve only bought 4 albums from 2010, so there isn’t much room to begin with…)!
