Noah and the Whale is one of those groups that continues to evolve, pushing past expectations and following their interests in any direction they take. Frontman Charlie Fink once again helms the ship by further exploring the poppy sound of 2011's Last Night on Earth, so those hoping for the melancholy folk of their earlier efforts may feel unsettled and disappointed. For those that enjoyed that foray into new territory then Heart of Nowhere should easily satisfy.

The first track is an introduction, appropriately titled "Introduction". It sounds like effects from an Apple ad and doesn't really contribute much to the record, though it does get points for being relaxing. The album's title track features Anna Calvi and sets the upbeat tone for the rest of the record. The 80's sound is prevalent once again but it really suits the group and Fink's voice is both passionate and convincing, something that has always been at the heart of the band's music. Many of the tracks invoke The Police, such as "Silver and Gold", "All Through the Night", and "One More Night". The gentle synths and echoing guitars help to create an immersive and energetic atmosphere. There's a great narrative running through these tracks and each one manages to tell an intimate and personal story. Every listener will probably see themselves reflected in at least a handful of these tracks. These are optimistic tunes and the darker moments are dispelled with tales of redemption and hope.

Heart of Nowhere is another solid addition to the band's body of work. It isn't radically different from their previous album but it manages to be a bit more guitar driven, thus making it distinctive enough and there are definitely a few darker moments that slowly reveal themselves, though not oppressively. It's the sound of a band evolving and exploring new corners of their musical map. They're charting their own course and the musically adventurous should be more than pleased with this and what comes next.

I liked the first Noah and the Whale album, and I absolutely love the second album, but the two since then have been not very good. Corny, generic, artificial, and just plain boring is the best, not the worst, that I can come up with. I respected the fact that on the last album they tried something different, and even though it didn't work I liked the idea that they were trying to progress. This album is just stale. It sounds like they were trying to blend all of their ever changing sounds into one album, and it turned out to be one of the most artificial records I have ever listened to.

I still love you NATW. And, I am trying to keep up hope. I am not looking for a re-release of the first two albums, the second of which is in my top five, but come on, make something worthwhile. This one is regurgitated dull. Sorry, but it is.

I think this is the best album produced by Noah and the Whale. My favorite song is Silver and Gold, but there are many excellent songs on this album. The music and lyrics are excellent.

Couldn't stop listening to "Now is exactly the time" - great album as a whole.

I also recommend one of their earlier albums, "Peaceful, the world lays me down" which is how I actually discovered them (and am glad I did!)

I tend to hate it when bands change their sound too dramatically from when I first fell in love with them. Noah and the Whale have definitely changed, but in a way that still reflects all the aspects for which I first came to be a fan. This album is like a perfect blend of the others, though definitely resonating more with The First Days of Spring and Last Night on Earth far more than Peacefully the World Lays Me Down. If you liked Last Night on Earth, I would say there's a huge chance you'll enjoy this album. I love it, like all of their others.

The melodies and rhythm lines on this record are like mainlining sugar...and I mean that in a good way. Put it on and go for a bike ride or jog in the park. People will wonder why you're smiling. There are one or two cheesy tracks but the rest are pop magic. Think Ra Ra Riot at its best with better lyrics. Highly recommended.

I didn't think I would like this album after listening to a few sample and reading other negatives but after a few listens it is really growing on me. Favorite track is One More Night.

This is another solid Noah and the Whale album, but it's an expected follow-up to their last release. Based on my first listen there is really nothing new or unexpected here. Early tracks are strong, but get a little generic by the end. If you are looking for an album with a solid 80's Tom Petty sound to groove through your summer then I highly recommend.
