Editorial Reviews

2011 release, the third album from the British Alt-Roc/Pop band. Recorded in Hamburg, London and Atlanta, A Different Kind Of Fix sees the guitars firmly plugged back in for album number three, but added to the mix are synths, sampled loops, layered vocals from all four band members and washes of reverb throughout. Production-wise, the album reunites BBC with Jim Abbiss--who produced their debut--and also introduces them to Ben Allen (noted for his work with Animal Collective) whilst lead singer, Jack Steadman co-produces throughout. Includes first single, "Shuffle", "How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep" and "Take The Right One".

5.0 out of 5 stars A Different Kind of BBC August 31, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
On first listen, this album might be hard to understand, to listen to and to accept, its quite different from their previous albums, but its nonetheless a Bombay Bicycle Club album through and through. Its just an evolution, one that contains all the great parts that their previous albums imparted.

1: How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep; A great opening track with jangling guitars a little electronic beep and bop give this album a fresh driving beat accompanied by Suren de Saram's great drum beat, it really is a great song to wake up to and get moving.

2: Bad Timing: This starts out a little melancholy, kind of reminds me of the band Ultra in its structure. "with all your powers I am pushing back", the song sings of loss and the inability to stop it happening, slightly dour for the second track, but hey I like it dour, so another great track.

3: Your Eyes: Picks up the mood and offers a slightly more aggressive mood than the other songs so far, the great thing about this track are all the little instruments they use, here and there, just make it very interesting to pick through. I just love the way the song ends...

4: Lights Out, Words Gone: Ah man the beginning of this song is delicious, "my heart is breaking like you heard", great structure, reminds me a little of ska. I believe its Lucy Rose singing with them, great haunting song.

5: Take the Right One: Hits its stride straight away, very reminiscent of late 80's early nineties Seattle movement, but brought up to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another standout record from a consistently creative band September 4, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
After Bombay Bicycle Club's last album, Flaws, introduced the more mellow, acoustic-folk side of the band, I didn't think A Different Kind of Fix could stand up. I loved I Had the Blues But I Shook Them Loose and its crisp style of indie rock that mirrored other geographically and melodically close groups like The Maccabees, and the unplugged departure of their second album grabbed me by the cochlea and transduced its acoustical signals right on down to my auditory cortex. Their newest collection of songs is almost a compromise for Jack Steadman (lead vocals, guitar), Jamie MacColl (guitar), Ed Nash (bass) and Suren de Saram (drums)--it combines the standard electric feel of their first album with the softer, almost more sentimental tone of their second. Songs like How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep and Lights Out, Words Gone will catch you from the first listen, and others like Beggars and Your Eyes take a little more time to chew over, but will rapidly become your favorites.
This album is unlike anything I've ever heard. It melds the catchy, danceable tunes of pop with the substantive feel of rock, and the lyrical (and musical) depth and replayability of folk. The title says it best, this truly is A Different Kind of Fix.

5.0 out of 5 stars Has the goods December 12, 2011
By Chris
Format:MP3 Music
This record has the goods. The production and song writing are simply top notch. The melodies are lovely and catchy without being cliche. The lyrics resonate with the music while lingering in your head long after the tune ends. Jack Steadman's vocals effortlessly flow while exhibiting impressive range and tone - at times breathy, other times soft, occasionally heavy, yet never abrupt or out of place. The vocal harmonization provides depth and is evidence of stellar production. There are many melodies and rhythms frequently coming in and out during various sections of many of the songs, but they never feel crowded - each note is crisp and recognizable. The record sounds fantastic with a pair of quality headphones, yet doesn't sound muddy when turned up even on low-end speakers. As for the individual tunes themselves, Luke's review below is pretty spot on. The record has it all - a few catchy pop singles, slow grooves, ballads, and a rocker or two. Simply put, this is a fantastic record by talented and promising musicians in a top quality recording studio with seasoned sound engineers. I'm waiting in anticipation for what these boys will bring us next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album October 2, 2013
By AWTurn2
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One of the best records I've heard in years. A little Coldplay meets Talking Heads meets Stone Roses meets a tiny bit of Sigur Rose. Very imaginative arrangements, great rhythms, great melodies. Wonderful songs.

Format:Audio CD
British quartet Bombay Bicycle Club are proof that you don't need even a modestly successful hit single to enjoy a hit album. Despite the fact that none of its five singles became hits, A Different Kind Of Fix reached No. 6 on the U.K. Chart solely on the strength of favorable reviews and the popularity of the band's previous full-length release, 2010's Flaws (U.K. No. 8), which didn't contain a hit single, either.
A Different Kind Of Fix is a thrillingly creative, refreshingly playful album which provides ample evidence that modern music doesn't have to be predictable or mediocre to become popular with record buyers.

Everyone I've introduced to this album has fallen in love with it. Very cohesive sound, clever melodies, beautifully intricate arrangements, and the lyrics are a poetic complement to the artful music. Get it.
