Editorial Reviews

Third album from The Mary Onettes, first time working with Producer Dan Lissvik (Studio, Young Galaxy and The Embassy). The album is strongly influenced by the hidden treasures from the 80s and first single Evil Coast made them no. 1 most blogged artist on Hypem.com

This record has everything I loved about the '80s... in 2013! It's so retro it's fresh again.

I bought this record the day I found out it existed. I've been waiting for new material from these guys since their debut EP. My wife and I fell in love with their sound and specifically the song "Slow" (find.listen.enjoy.) This new LP definitely shows the band's commitment to their craft. Their sound has evolved in the best possible way since their early days, blending together all the best elements of the late-80's pop/new-wave landscape. Hit The Waves could easily have been #1 on charts from 30 years ago, yet the Mary Onettes just raised the bar for today's indie rock scene.

this album is amazing. i have been listening to the mary onettes since they released their first ep. as the years go on you can hear the song writing mature and progress- yet still staying in the same realm, never losing the original feeling. sometimes people are too quick to label the mary onettes genre. ive heard everything from dream pop to synth rock, but they are genreless and focus more on raw emotion and you can name it whatever you like. if you like this album, i highly suggest purchasing their entire discography. every album they have written (including hit the waves) has its highs, its lows, its uptempo and its downtempo songs- making it amazing from start to finish. dont neglect the mary onettes lyrics. dont be afraid to google search for your favorite songs lyrics and read along while listening. its creative, heartfelt, poetic and relate-able. buy this album! rate it *****!

As a Mary-Onettes fan since I first heard them on a Labrodor sampler, I couldn't wait for this album to be released - and while not totally disappointed, I was hoping for a different 'evolution'... Their first album was simply brilliant and argueably flawless - a heavy eighties influence with up and down tempo numbers, great guitar interplay, classic analog flavored synth textures, and wonderful arrangements - I was hooked. The follow up album brought everything down to a slower pace, but still maintained a great level of energy and interesting arrangements... sadly, this new album comes off as sleepy and in some ways uninspired. Much of what captivated me about their sound seems to have faded into a more 'easy listening' 80's sound... nothing up-tempo... no real 'hooks' that suck you in and have you repeating a song over and over... While certainly a decent album to toss on while taking it easy after work if it's on top of the stack, it doesn't quite have to pull to leave it in the player, or put much effort into looking for it on a whim....

The Mary Onettes never disappoint. This album is a little more upbeat musically but still maintains their signature sorrowful yet hopeful mood.

I was introduced to these guys a few years back through one track, so they've been on my "to check out" list for a while. When this came out, I Spotify'd it and it clicked with me pretty instantaneously. I eventually shelled out the full $13 for a brand new shrink wrapped CD, which is something I don't do often nowadays.

I'm smart enough to realize that there really isn't an original idea here, but I have what some might refer to as a sick loyalty to almost anything that buries itself in 80s new wave/jangle pop nostalgia, which is why I propped up last year's Wild Nothing record so high. This has everything that scratches me where I itch: icey textures, jangly guitars, chime-y keys, melodically earnest vocals without being too melodramatic (yes, the singer gives a nod or two to Robert Smith). More importantly though, the tunes are there. They definitely lost themselves in their influences, but their knack for infectious hooks helps them transcend any regressive tendencies they might have. I mean, it is about the song most of the time, right?
