Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

With alarming regularity, formerly spry English pop bands have turned somber over the past year in their quest for historical significance. Blur, Oasis, and the Charlatans all released albums that not only squashed their once youthful resilience, but left us with nothing more than gangs of stodgy band members in parkas moaning about their sad lives. As if one Bush weren't already enough. Sleeper, meanwhile, always on the losing side of the credibility battle, turned so sour they split before their third album even had a chance to break in America. Just as well that Pleased to Meet You arrives on our shores belatedly. This year's model lacks the urgency and optimism of the group's last outing, The It Girl, instead serving up a steady progression of cumbersome melodies ("She's a Good Girl") and droning choruses ("Motorway Man"). While certain songs benefit from a little well-suited sophistication ("Breathe" and "Nothing Is Changing"), the rest of the material generally withers under the low spark of singer Louise Wener's toneless delivery. However, this album still isn't as tragic as hearing Supergrass go from "Alright" to "Sometimes I Make You Sad." Indeed. --Aidin Virazi

As a huge sleeper fan,I anxiously awaited the follow up to their brilliant album "The It Girl."When I read that the new album was a flop and was not even being released in the U.S.,I was determined to buy the record (as Import) and decide for myself.After all ,most rock critics are total losers and love to slag this band for whatever reason.When the record arrived I put it on and within about 5 seconds of the opening track "Please,Please,Please"I knew my faith in the band was well placed.I feel this is the best Sleeper record to date.Fans of bands like Blur and Elastica would probably like this.Standout tracks "Traffic Accident","Rollercoaster"and "Firecracker" are Sleeper at their absolute best.

Definately one the the best cd's that i own. Louise Wener has a way of phrasing words that make each sentence beautiful. Along with intelligent lyrics, the music is very catchy and full. Since it was the last album they made as Sleeper, all I have to say is what a way to make an exit!

Just when I thought SMART couldn't be beat, THE IT GIRL was released. An indelibly grand album, it posed a threat to Sleeper. Would they snap under the weight? Nope. PLEASED TO MEET YOU not only exceeds both previous albums, it smooshes them into the ground. The sparse keyboard-driven "Motorway Man" resonates long after it's over, "You Got Me" boasts an unbeatable "ooh-ooh-ooh" chorus, "Rollercoaster" has a snappy moog that sounds like it was lifted from a Stereolab record and the closing rave-up "Traffic Accident" ponders on about someone "in a white hall room who's popping prostitutes". Lyrically and musically, PLEASED TO MEET YOU proves that the British Press are idiots for slagging this brilliant band. I hope this record is released in America soon. It's been out in Britain for a year now.
