Kind of ironic

Isn't it? That Ryan Dellwood would criticize this record and declare his allegiance with the band's earliest material - when this new album is mostly songs from the '90s that B&S didn't record and revamped for this soundtrack (including a new version of a song from Ryan's beloved "Sinister" album!). Well, anyway...this is a good reentry if you aren't into the band's more all-genres-served vibe of the last few records, and there's lots of charming stuff on here.

Best band since the smiths

Nothing better then getting new music from belle and Sebastian

Ryan Dellwood ,

Not a proper album since '98

I appreciate that bands evolve. Belle and Sebastian have done that , some will say. Yet, since 1998, the quality of songs and songwriting has declined. Stuart's voice is louder, stronger. I prefer the lo-fi sound of "If You're Feeling Sinister" and the brilliant songs form those years. Man, were those some good albums with "Tigermilk" "...Sinister" , and " ...Arab Strap". Some of the best ones I have ever heard. Yet, after , it's all the same stuff. It says, as a famous ringleader quipped ," Nothing to me about my life." It's dull. I could not imagine listening to this more than once.
