Il secondo album dei Belle and Sebastian non si discosta molto dall'esordio "Tigermilk", essendo uscito lo stesso anno: un Nick Drake un po' più allegro, gli Smiths che si dilettano col folk … Lo trovo però meno "centrato", quasi fosse un tentativo di battere nuove vie senza potersi distaccare troppo da quella principale e con l'obiettivo non ancora a fuoco come sarà invece nel successivo "The boy with the arab strap".

This seems to be one of those album that uses slightly non-traditional chords and melody structures, so that it may take two or three listens to "get." However, there are definitely some great tracks even first listen.

As a side note, anyone that likes this should check out Wilco, especially Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. There were many songs that reminded me of wilco quite a bit

Beautiful. A very rare thing. Stuart Murdoch is some songwriter.

This is such a great, lovely album. This is a lot lighter and cuter than I was expecting. Since the album has the word "Sinister" in its title and the highest rated song is called "Get Me Away From Here, I'm Dying", I was expecting a very dark, personal album, like a mix between The Smiths, Portishead, Slint, Joy Division, and Neil Young. Instead, this is this very strong indie pop record. It still has its sadder comments too of course. I recommend this.
