Nice! A consistently creative, compelling set of multi-textured, twistily melodic indiepop... The band intuitively searches out unusual sounds, unsettling rhythms, novel melodic progressions... in essence, stuff that's just weird enough to keep your ears on the edge of their seats. It's pleasant -- poppy and accessible in its own way -- but full of inventive sonic novelties, and a relaxed forward momentum that gives it just enough of a "pop" feel to keep us happy. Anyway, I liked it.

While this does not displace 41 as my favorite Swell, it is a viable addition to the Swell library. It has the songs that are fun to listen to the first time through (Next to Nothing, War Comes Down), and then there are the songs that drag you in a bit more slowly. These are the ones that will become my "Swell staples" (Always Everything, California Arizona). There's only one song on the whole disc that I'm not crazy about, and that's "Say Goodbye."
It's absolutely terrific headphone music, and great for listening to while you work, drive, or just about anything. I highly recommend Swell to anyone. They deserve to be heard.

I picked this CD up the day it came out, having looked forward to a new one from these guys. This CD is great. If you are a Swell fan, the best way to describe it is to say it's a lot like '41' in the percussion department, and a lot like 'Everybody wants to know' in the guitar department. There are even a couple of tracks which hark back to the 1990 debut 'Swell', such as the song 'War comes down', which has a chord progression much like "Always one thing" and "Dan, son of god", but a different melody altogether.
Swell is much like the Jesus and Mary Chain in that respect (although they sound nothing like them)- they are able to take a single sound and sometimes a single chord progression and switch it around, rethread it and revamp it into a whole new beautiful song. In that way, they've created a body of work which stands as a single musical statement and at the same time is wicked fun to listen to.
There are 15 songs on the album, and the song lengths probably average about 4 minutes, with a range from 2:30 to 7:11 on track 14, so this album has enough variety to keep you interested with enough hooks to grab you in the first place.
It seems like it might not be quite as immediately likeable as '41', but I'm still letting the songs sink in...
