Editorial Reviews

Danish experimental dream-pop trio Mew return August 25, 2009 with the triumphant No More Stories, a towering, masterpiece follow-up to their critically acclaimed breakthrough And The Glass Handed Kites. On their fifth album, Mew pushes their artfully weird and epic sound labyrinthine arrangements of overlapping, unexpected harmonies and sugary heaven-bound vocals into a warm, accessible collection of songs with more stick-in-your-head hooks than words in its extensive album title. 'Yeah, the title sounds pretty bleak' admits singer Jonas Bjerre. 'It comes from having watched a lot of TV when I was a kid. I feel like I've been told so many stories in my life I don't need to hear anymore, and so I've kind of given up on being impressed by stories. But the cover art is really happy and colorful and it shows the positive side which is to go out, become part of the world and make your own stories.'

I've had this for about a week and I just don't get it. I have thousands of CDs and LPs in my music collection. I've been recording albums with my own band for over ten years. I've been playing drums for twenty-five years. I don't understand how this band makes pop music that is so simple yet so complex.

It's baffling. I've been listening to the triptych, "Hawaii," "Vaccine" and "Tricks of the Trade." After the first ten listens, I believed this to be a muddled, meandering mess that threatened to sink the entire second half of the record, greatly diminishing the impact of the whole piece of art. After twenty-five listens, layer after layer of complexly interwoven melody, instrumentation, composition and general aural magic have begun to reveal themselves. I can't stop playing this section of the record over and over again. I've not even made it to really understanding the final two tracks on the record yet...

Currently, I've only one small complaint and that may very likely disappear with time. There is no bulldozing rocker like "Apocalypso" or "Snow Brigade" on this latest release. I would have liked one of those buried somewhere in here.

Mew defy classification and expectation. If The Jonas Brothers and Coldplay made a record with 1970s King Crimson and Rush...produced by Kate Bush. Maybe that would start to begin to explain what is happening here.

When "And the Glass-Handed Kites" was released, I told numerous people that the best way to describe Mew was that they sound like falling in love for the first time feels...all over again...ever single time. That description still holds true for me.

There are those who wanted more of the same of And The Glass Handed Kites or Frengers....and some of those folks might be disappointed. While No More Stories doesn't delve too far from the sound that makes MEW-- well...MEW....there is something different about it. Possibly more mature. Whatever the case, there is nothing wrong with it. From start to finish the musicianship on this record is just amazing. Seeing them perform these songs live and hearing them come to life was just an experience that I hope everyone will have the opportunity to have. While the record might take more than one listen at a glance, it quickly grows and becomes like a flourishing flower, exposing moods, tempos, and rhythms that only MEW could give us. And, while Jonas Bjerre's voice is always in top form, on No More Stories, he explores the range of it in a way that he hasn't done before. He doesn't only focus on the high notes but on the low ones as well-- and the record is all the more beautiful for it. On songs such as "Beach", "Sometimes Life Isn't Easy, and "Silas the Magic Car" we hear the vocal ability that Jonas seems to still be tapping into, and it it only gets better with time.

Everyone is welcome to his or her opinion, but anyone who calls this band gimmicky or says that they are just trying to be another Radiohead, well, I don't think they get what this band is about.

MEW doesn't sound like anything else out there, and I couldn't be more thankful....or relieved.

Mew's last album (.."And the Glass Handed Kites") is one of the best albums I've ever heard. Needless to say I was exited about this follow-up. I've listened through this one twice and I am loving it already. Buy this album! Mew will change the way you see music. It will transform your preferences :). TIP: Mew is an album band. You sometimes have to listen to the whole album to get the point. I do not recommend buying a few MP3 tracks.Go for the entire enchilada!!

If after your first run-through you aren't convinced, give it a few more goes. It took me a few days to really appreciate the beauty and power of this album. I think especially for a fan of Frengers and Kites, No More Stories may not be too exciting at first. Certainly it doesn't have the obvious accessibility of Frengers or the immediate intensity of Kites, but it has something that makes it stand out. I can't really explain it, except to say that No More Stories is all about layers. The melodies are maddeningly complex, so much so that on my first few listens I thought it was an aimless jumble of disjointed tunes. But it all works, everything flows together nicely, and the bizarre key changes, rhythm changes, time signature changes, produce a truly rich effect. This is a deep, mature work, and sticks with you even if you don't realize it's taken root. While I was a little underwhelmed when I first ran through the album, I couldn't resist going back for more. Something about the strange, ethereal sound drew me back again and again until finally I grew familiar enough with each song to understand and love it. No More Stories is best taken in via headphones, I think, to really get a feel for all the levels and components. This is especially true on the middle piece, Cartoons and Macrame Wounds. This is a stirring, lovely song, but very unconventional, and somewhat puzzling. Indeed, the opening contains a line that is virtually impossible to make out, with or without headphones, and it's a very well-written line. Most unfortunate. I only found the line in the lyrics in the booklet. Another troublesome track is Tricks of the Trade. It annoyed me at first, it seemed too bland. But now I realize it has a moody, punky vibe that's truly infectious.Read more ›

MEW Dynamite - No More Stories
I've listened to it a few times (yeah, I'll buy it, I promise), and it really hasn't impressed much. I was hoping for something new and different after the last album, but this seems to be a fallback, not as bright, not as exciting and no real progress in the song writing. Pity.
