Editors’ Notes

On its third album, Bombay Bicycle Club fashions a sound expansive enough to encompass introspective folk, ambient pop, and even a hint of ‘80s new wave. Under the production guidance of Ben H. Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter), the North London foursome retains the whimsical charm of its earlier work while increasing the rhythmic drive and textural variety. BBC’s eclecticism finds unity in Jack Steadman’s softly insistent vocals, a natural outlet for the band’s impressionistic lyrics. If Fix’s song themes tend to be elusive, the tracks here are often insidiously catchy. Tunes like “Shuffle” (built around a stuttering piano and spring-loaded beat), “Your Eyes” (as lean and propulsive as vintage post-punk), and “What You Want” (boasting an insistent drum hook) are effortlessly ear-grabbing. Veering into more atmospheric regions are pastel-toned numbers like “Fracture” and “Favorite Day” (the latter tinged with a genteel psychedelia). Chorale vocals and a simmering groove lend “How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep” a hypnotic power.

Customer Reviews

Buy it, it's fantastic.

One of those albums that has a song for any mood, my highlights are How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep, Your Eyes, Lights Out, Words Gone, Shuffle, and Still (Sounds like Amnesiac-era Radiohead). Beg should be on the album, not a bonus track (it's also awesome). I hope they can grab some mainstream attention with this album, they deserve it.

A Different Kind of Fix

This is the kind of music that SHOULD be on the radio, not that infernal rap crap. The style of this album is very much like some of the alternative music I used to listen to in the 1980's. Intelligent, and very very listenable.
