Album Review
nari
Reviewed 2001-09-02 
This reunion album features a new incarnation of the Go-Betweens, including Robert Forster, Grant McLennan, and 3 members of Sleater-Kinney. This is indie/folk pop with melodic hooks so sweet and lush instrumentation so beautiful that it put a smile on my face. Overall mood is relaxed and cheery. There's nothing surprising about this kind of twee pop, but they just do it so well. -nari

*1. Pretty layered guitars and layered vocals, snappy beat.

*2. Infectious melody and a snappy beat.

*3. Punkier dissonant opening chords.

4. Heavy beat, danceable. Tell-a-story vocals.

5. Twinkly guitar + violin/viola + melancholy vocals = pretty.

*6. Sad, achy-wistful chords.

7. Cute on all three fronts - bouncy drums, simple guitar line, silly lyrics.

8. Why does this sound like an old Genesis song? Bass turned up on this track for a slow funky lope.

9. Fastest moving track. Very upbeat.

10. Folkiest track. Acoustic guitar, vocals laden with regret, violin.
