EDITORS’ NOTES

Opening with a bracing one-two of arena-ready indie rock (“Bad Bohemian,” “International Space Station”), British Sea Power’s sixth album quickly endorses their claim that it’s their most musically direct record. They’ve retained much of their skittish adventure too, wrapping indelible hooks in cosmic soul balladry (“Want to Be Free”), chiming guitar pop (“Don’t Let the Sun Get in the Way”), and jagged funk-rock (“Keep on Trying (Sechs Freunde)).”
