5.0 out of 5 stars Different from Debut, but Just as Good October 1, 2013
Format:Audio CD
When London's Yuck debuted with their self-titled record in 2011, I'm sure a few folks wondered if they were really listening to Yuck or if this band had recently unearthed a lost record from the 1990's. Yuck is a throwback, through and through, referencing the likes of Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., and Pavement. At times, the record even feels like Early '90s Rock: The Album. The album was a success though, and highly enjoyable, but Yuck is still an unproven quantity. In April 2013, lead vocalist and guitarist Daniel Blumberg left the band to pursue his own solo project, so the rest of the band pulled together and wrote/recorded an album without him. The resulting sophomore record, Glow & Behold is a test on two fronts then: does Yuck still work without Blumberg? And will the album be sufficiently distinct enough to rid them of their nostalgia-act status?

Answer #1: Yes.
Answer #2: Mostly.

On the first pass of Glow & Behold, I was struck by how streamlined things had become. Yuck was known (and praised) for its often muddy, shoegaze-y distortion, but Glow & Behold is largely absent of these hallmarks. Perhaps the amplified sound was Blumberg's doing, or perhaps the band is trying to directly address the criticism of sounding too much like their idols; whatever the case, it sounds different. Clean. Polished. The two instrumental tracks, "Sunrise In Maple Shade" and "Chinese Cymbals" are downright restrained! There's no sign of grit or waste on Glow & Behold for better or worse. The only time the band really lights up is in the lead single, "Middle Sea" (yes, a pun for the music theory nerds. And you thought that degree was all for naught!) The rest of the record is slower and less textured than the band's self-titled; the focus has moved from timbre to melody.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yuck's Change in Direction Musically is Not Yucchy! December 8, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I like this cd- A change in direction from their gravelly musty 1st release---Losing a lead singer can do that sometimes! Here leader Daniel Blumberg and took his sister (on backing vocals) reducing the group to 4-- Max Bloom takes over on lead vocals and song writing-- showing more a flair for Teenage Fanclub then some grunge.. Overall a far more melodious release -- and a nice change in direction. I know some of the critics panned this new release -- but I like it and I will continue to listen to Yucchy music!

4.0 out of 5 stars lively, guitar-driven indie pop November 2, 2013
Format:Audio CD
2nd release from this London band—lively, guitar-driven indie pop with some squalling, hummable
hooks and melody lines. Although the overall dreamy feel of the album renders it somewhat less
immediate & grabbing than their exceptional 2011 self-titled debut, the echoic feedback guitar
hum and strong pop songwriting gives “Glow & Behold” a different sort of power and life that
demands repeated listens and promises even better things to come. Former members of Cajun
Dance Party & Impossible Village. Similarities to Dinosaur Jr., Teenage Fanclub, The Pains Of
Being Pure At Heart, Yo La Tengo, Pure X, Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, East River Pipe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes change isn't a bad thing... October 25, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Yuck dropped one of the most surprising and enjoyable chunks of music nostalgia in 2011 with their debut album. There was plenty to sit back and get reminiscent about on that record. My Bloody Valentine, Dinosaur Jr, Lush, and even bits of Pavement's DNA were found all over that ratty, scrappy record. But the nice thing was that head Yuckster Daniel Blumberg wasn't satisfied with being just some early 90s alternative jukebox. No, he gave these old, classic noises a new life. With his youthful whine and scrappy guitar squall Blumberg and co-Yuck founder Max Bloom seemed to be on the way to being the next great band out of the UK. Then Daniel Blumberg decided to leave Yuck(cue Fat Possum Record executives long sigh.) So what's a promising, young, alternative rock band to do? Pick themselves up by their bootstraps and keep on keeping on. Max Bloom stepped into the lead singer spot and along with fellow bandmates Mariko Doi, Jonny Rogoff, and Ed Hayes got back to the studio and recorded the proper follow-up to that great self-titled debut. Glow & Behold is both triumphant and bittersweet. Triumphant in that the rest of Yuck proved they didn't need Blumberg to continue on with making great music, but bittersweet in that it's a reminder of what might have been had they been able to keep together.

"Sunrise In Maple Shade" opens the record in instrumental mode. The doorway through to the house that 90s indie rock built. Close your eyes and you swear it's a Terror Twilight lost track. Soon enough "Out Of Time" rolls in and its melancholy chord changes and Real Estate vibe sucks you right in. Max Bloom lacks the whine that Blumberg made Yuck's trademark sound, but that's not a bad thing. Bloom's voice is more assured and can carry a melody further than Blumberg could.
