This fourth album from Gomez, is characterized as a going back to basics phase for the band. There is something distinctly rock n'roll about this album, with much less of experimentalism that defined some of their other albums.
The songs are crammed with brilliant melodies, catchy choruses, and their trademark vocal harmonies.
Although Gomez are a guitar band (three guitar players) they aren't much like a conventionaly jam band, despite having fans from that genre. It isn't riddled with guitar solos, which I am pleased about.
This album basically covers every kind of roots rock/rock & roll idiom with a great effortlessness, lovers of the genre will appreciate that about the album. The first two singles, "Catch Me Up" and "Silence" are catchy rockers, while "Sweet Virginia" (not the Stones' song) and "There It Was" should satisfy those who enjoy ballads like "Tijuana Lady".
There is actually not one song on this album that I dislike. But then I have only listened to it for about a week, maybe ask me again in a month. In my opinion, this album truly rivals their amazing debut Bring It On.
