Taken from the new album, 'Infinity Overhead', released via Big Scary Monsters.
Darren Bibby - Everything suggests I shouldn't like this, the sparkling pearly vocals, the squeaky funk (Honch should love that) with an effect that sounds like it's coming though one of those Turbo pedals...but, it's a pretty good pop song. I like the verses more than the chorus though. 3 beards
Lizzie Banoffee - The few times I have listened to this it has actually quite grown on me, but it just doesn't leap out at me as being a great song somehow. He just seems to sing without any real interest in what he's singing, and there are a few other little things that spoil it for me like the claps or whatever they are in the chorus; that breakdown bit doesn't really add anything, and there is an awfully cheesy little riff at the end which sounds like bad sax - leaves a slightly unpleasant after-taste. 2.5 Beards
Eóin Boylan - Really not into this, the bloke singing sounds like he can hardly be arsed, the synth is needless, the guitar effect is poorly executed and the chorus is a bore-fest. The claps make it bearable and generally it's inoffensive, but definitely not something I'd listen to regularly. 2 Beards
Aidan Rivett - I've always really enjoyed MTB's first album, listening to their work from then on it's clear they weren't particularly interested in being a good indie-rock band and were much more inclined to making pop songs with some mathy time signatures to keep it a bit more exciting. In revisiting this single having not listened to them in quite a while it's obvious they're doing exactly what they've done on the past three or four albums. Song isn't terrible but I can't say I’d care much about the rest of the album. 2 Beards
Scott R. White - Minus The Bear features a former member of Botch. I would feel really disappointed in what I have become if I was him. This could be anybody. 1 Beard
