From the flapping and warped guitar barbs at the fabulous' Introducing Palace Players' to 'Hawaii's gentle male voice choir and calypso rhythms manifest Mew as the band that imperceptibly contains contradictory expression within it that with a little good will can be called pop.
In a number as 'Cartoons and Macrame Wounds' is Mew such with that a song must have a start, climax and conclusion. Voltage curve is just not quite a foregone conclusion when the group here omkalkerer the most familiar popskabeloner and song-dramaturgies. Master The example is' Sometimes Life Is not Easy ", a more-in-one song where Jonas Bjerre in touch almost (but only almost) unbearable and hilarious creates itself as a hystade over a pretentious saxophone until the song slips from cacophony to harmony by the most uncomplicated guitar chunks, Bo Madsen has played in his life, and the band's perhaps most obviously appealing choruses ever.
The range is big on 'No More Stories ...'. But Mew gets never between two chairs, they build an even greater extent than previously distinguished bridge between abstract experiment bright and anchored tunes. The result is that you do not get tired of the album, which is less boisterous and darkened bombastic as its predecessor and probably contains fewer obvious hits. But it is not a weakness in my ears: Mew have made their most varied and complete record for now.
