Top 100 Music Reviewer

I checked out this band after the NME likened them to a cross between the Cocteau Twins and My Bloody Valentine (two of my favourite bands). I couldnt resist the comparison, usually i really distrust the NME.

I cant say it sounds like a cross between the Cocteau Twins and MBV, but School of Seven Bells are most definately brilliant! It's blissed out like the Cocteau Twins were at various points in their career, but thats where the comparisons end, although as a live band, School of Seven Bells bear similarities to MBV..

Highlights include the opening track, the poorly punctuated Iamundernodisguise. Its brilliant indie-pop with hypnotic tribal chant-esque vocals while Prince of Peace follows a similar mould. Half Asleep and Chain are blissed out electro-pop, Connjur is the kind of hazy pop song most bands would kill for, the epic Sempiternal/Amaranth is simply made for smoking 'jazz cigerettes' to while the fuzzy soundscapes of My Cabal sound like an electronic MBV track splashed with sunshine.

This album is unlikely to be appreciated by the mainstream, but then neither were the Cocteau Twins and My Bloody Valentine. Its their loss and shouldnt detract away from this albums' brilliance. Its definately in my top 5 albums of 2008.
