After being blown to pieces by the single, Carry Me, I couldn't help having enormous expectations for this album. Carry Me has been a party/drinking tune for my friends and I over this past month, and we've been highly anticipating So Long, See You Tomorrow. After about six listens of it, I can honestly say I literally love, as in, completely worship, nine of the ten tracks. (I won't mention the track that I don't exactly "love", but it's still a good tune, one that I can predict others will probably enjoy).

BBC continue to reinvent themselves with each album, but on this album I believe they've channeled a sound they feel truly passionate and confident about. It's definitely still that quirky, and at times highly emotional indie sound they've proven themselves so deft at generating; where it's different, though, is in its presentation. The songs are a bit bouncier than usual, with more electronics (not overwhelmingly so, I promise), and some fairly strange sounds added throughout the mix (the thick horns[?] on Carry Me are weird and delightful). They're just excellent song-writers, particularly because of Jack Steadman's flawless crooning: the guy can make even the simplest of melodies stick like barnacle.

BBC have struck that perfect balance between intelligent/challenging and catchy/fun, and So Long, See You Tomorrow is a testimony to the hard work it must be to effectively pull off such a dynamic.

I just downloaded this and listened to it. I have all of BBC's music and love all of it. This one is fantastic.....a mystical journey of sounds and tempos. I haven't been this excited about an album since Sgt. Pepper's came out. I am 63 and long for the unique, innovative sounds to carry me to the next decade. Bombay Bicycle Club is, I feel, the path I'm going to follow. I love this album, every note of it. PS I am not comparing this album to Sgt. Pepper's, nor am I comparing BBC with the Beatles. It's the excitement of something so completely new and unique....that's what both albums do for me. At first listen, they both moved me deeply.

Their sound is at times ethereal, experimental, bit gazer-esque, bit alt, they are always a pleasure to listen to and break the monotony of my chronic love for indie artists w/ a hardcore bent towards gazer/trance/brain xanax music....like Malory or Lights and Motion or Hammock.....or Moonlit Sailor.....Sleeping at Last.....all phenom bands/artists in their own right!

I fell in love with them via A Different Kind of Fix and was really excited to see So Long, See You Tomorrow had been released. I purchased it immediately. Wasn't so sure on the first listen, as the sound is a bit different. A bit more synthy-experimental sounding. However, I have listened to it a lot now and really enjoy it. Like A Different Kind of Fix, the entire CD is good. I have my favorites, but I still listen to it in entirety and think it is best experienced that way. I highly recommend it and am hopeful they keep up the good work!! There are few bands whose entire albums I buy without a second thought.

Bombay Bicycle Club are the future music. While many UK indie bands have produced sterile, safe melodies over the last 5 years, BBC have been on the cutting edge from the very beginning, and any of these 10 majestically produced songs will show that. Their progression as a band is simply unparalleled, creating four albums in five years, each one substantially different to the last, while still grasping at something so subtle throughout to give each song that BBC signature sound. So Long See You Tomorrow significantly derives its inspiration from World Music, Steadman has outdone himself in creating a sound 'out there' yet relatable, with hard hitting percussion and infectious melodies, all tied together in his unique production often seen in his solo work. It's experimental, its inspiring, and leaving me only question of what they'll do next. This is the future of music.

This album is not as good as "A Different Kind of Fix".

If "A Different Kind of Fix" is equivalent to Radiohead's "OK Computer", then "So Long, See You Tomorrow" would be "Kid A" (I'm not saying that those albums are as good as one another). It offers more of the same kind of music, but its style is just different enough to stand out enough on its own.

"So Long, See You Tomorrow" is hard to say what type of style it actually would fall under because every song sounds pretty different just as the songs did on "A Different Kind of Fix". However, some songs still fall into repeating the same chord progressions throughout the song, which to me is just lazy songwriting.

Those negative reviews from music critics I read are absolutely CRAZY! I would like to have a conversation with each of those journalists about this album. To me this is what music is supposed to sound like--lots of layers and melodies accompanying each other to make something beautiful and unique.

Anyways, I would buy the whole album. You shouldn't be disappointed by a single song on here, unless "Carry Me" is too experimental for you.

Track by Track Ratings:

1. Overdone - 10/10
2. It's Alright Now - 8/10
3. Carry Me - 9/10
4. Home By Now - 7/10
5. Whenever, Wherever - 10/10
6. Luna - 10/10
7. Eyes Off You 10/10
8. Feel - 10/10
9. Come To - 8/10
10. So Long, See You Tomorrow - 9/10

For listening: The album sounds much better on headphones than on speakers. The bass really overwhelms everything on speakers, even though everything is completely balanced, and it is hard to hear all the different layers. They should have mixed the album the better.
