Editorial Reviews

2009 release. A New Tide marks a return for Gomez to their always-freewheeling, more experimental roots, with songs like 'Win Park Slope' and 'Airstream Driver' (the first single) evincing a spirit born of boundless imagination and a long-standing collaborative relationship. Accompanied by a number of illustrious guest musicians, including vocalist Amy Milan (of Stars/Broken Social Scene fame), bassist Josh Abrams (The Roots, Sam Prekop, Godspeed You Black Emperor!), cellist Oliver Krauss (David Gray, Paul Weller, Beth Orton), and multi-instrumentalist Stuart Bogie of Brooklyn's world-renowned Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra.

Customer Reviews

I knew it was good music but didn't realize it was Gomez.
Dawn Brown
They can, and do, go from lilting melodies to pounding rock, often in the same song, which is one of the things I love about them.
Thomas Rose
This is a brilliant album, people, by one of the great bands of the last decade and possibly beyond.
Ronin F. Costa

Don't worry. It's Gomez. At this stage of the game, you kinda know that they're good. And if you like what they've done before, you're probably going to like this, too. If reviews and fan comments are to be believed, people seem to be split into pre-and-post In Our Gun categories. While I can understand this notion, I became a fan during the In Our Gun era, and consequently, have loved everything before and since. The older stuff is revelatory if you've never heard it before, and the new stuff takes a self-assured step in another, less defined direction; a step I would not discount in the least. Some of the greatest glories with this band have come from experimentation and throwing everything against the pop music wall and seeing what sticks. To me, it all sticks, and even the misses are worth the price of admission. This album strikes me as more of a fusion of sounds from the early years and the best of the sonic efforts from the last album, How We Operate. But in the end, what they've come up with is another sure step into what can only be described as Gomez. And, for my ear, that works perfectly.

I have been a major Gomez fan since hearing Bring It On. They are a British band that makes Mercury Prize winning music with innovation and intelligence. They can make you even more cool just by putting on a Gomez cd when friends are over. Their style is hip earthy eclectic group chemistry. They all write songs and three sing vocals. Any of them can carry a song on their own but the sound of their voice combos are even more fun. My personal favorite is Ben Ottewel, heard on their last cd's song How We Operate.

When I heard Airstream Driver the first time on the radio my antenna went up. I knew it was good music but didn't realize it was Gomez. When the dj said who the band was and a new cd was being released in a few weeks I started counting down the time. On High Tide they continue their inclusion of a broad assortment of styles, percussion and instruments. Among those used here are cello, congas, viola, bass harmonica, nut salad and gong and what is referred to as the Stomach of Ben (which was fun to try to single out). From the first song Mix to Airstream Driver through to Sunset Gates there were no misses. I had a rough week at work but keeping High Tide on constant replay lifted me through it.

What a treat to find out they included a free dvd. "Here Comes the Breeze: Gomez in Chicago." Seriously, how cool is that? I haven't been able to see them in concert, much disappointment, so this was very much appreciated.

If you're already a Gomez fan...this is a worthy addition to the Gomez library. If you've heard Airstream Driver recently and liked it, I am certain you will be glad you bought this cd.

Wow...thank you Gomez. As much as I enjoyed INDIVIDUAL SONGS on How We Operate(in particular, the title track and Hamoa Beach)I was a little concerned that the guys had maybe started going down the watered down, try-to-please-the-radio-format syndrome(aka Dave Mathews Disease)that a lot of other groups have gotten ill from in the past. Thankfully, I can proudly say, NO. I am so proud of these guys and this record. This is their best album since Bring It On and their is not a single clunker on this album. Wonderfully produced, catchy hooks, wonderful vocals...this is the album Bring It On fans have been waiting for. NOW, I am biased since Liquid Skin is personally the only album that Gomez has ever made that really didn't register with me and even that album stands up against most band's best efforts in my estimation.Nevertheless, this album helps 2009 start with a bang for me personally and I can't imagine a Gomez fan not liking this album. Now, maybe if you are some slave to emo and droning radio formats, then maybe you should go buy the flavor of the week band and let real music be enjoyed by real music fans.A+ album

Gomez has more collective talent and musicianship than any of their more successful peers from the 90s Brit band invasion. All things considered, the A-list of highly regarded Brit bands of that era such as Oasis, Radiohead, the Verve and Portishead have yet to produce a body of work that is as compelling and consistently high in quality as Gomez. Four years after being dropped by Virgin Records for lack of sales and thirteen years after forming as a band, Gomez remains under nearly everyone's radar, except for a growing cult of fans who've attended their high energy live shows.

"A New Tide" is the musical equal of any of Gomez's earlier releases. They've polished their world weary and culturally literate hook laden songs driven by their muscular three guitar sound with a sheen of professionalism...but not to a fault. Gomez is equally at home playing in an unplugged accoustic setting as they are wired to a wall of amplifiers. There are multiple songwriters and three vocalists each talented enough to front their own band. It's tempting for fans to single out Tom Grey's evocative voice as Gomez's vocalist and front man, but Gomez would rather be an anonymous band without a front man, than relinquish the shared duties of singing and songwritting.

"A New Tide" finds Gomez sticking to it's guns and refusing to abandon it's trademark rootsy soulful approach to pander to the latest gimmicks and trends of mainstream pop. And it's refreshing to see a band with enough self awareness to avoid reinventing themselves into something they are not, for the sake of financial success. The reason why Gomez has produced six albums with only almost no throwaway filler is they've been brutally honest in their self assessment of their own collective strengths and limitations as a band.
