(...) "Ambitions" weaves their Spector-esque vocal delivery with repetitive driven drumming and a bouncy bass line which can do nothing but get inside your head. Even better though are the hand claps that propel the jaunty, tropical rhythm of "Meantime", the arrangements are tight, the production is clean and its melody is as catchy as hell. Another marvellous piece of simple, delightful pop is "Strange Ideas" which further highlights their charmingly retro, lo-fi sound, with sweet harmonies and jangling guitars. A hat-trick of fun, infectious and simply delicious tracks from an album that will definitely be worth searching out.
The band has done a good job at mixing post punk with jangle guitars and harmonies. I heard Ambitions about a week ago and was pretty excited about the new music from the band. I was pretty excited when I saw the album in my email. I liked the album. I probably wouldn’t list it at my all time favorite album ever but it was well produced and a solid album. If you were a big fan of their first album, then you’ll really like this album too.
