    Murdoch on the dance floor

    Belle and Sebastian have been off the grid for way too long. Now that God Help the Girl has completed its victory lap (and what a film it is!!!), Stuart and Co. can now share the continued excellence of B & S with the world. Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance is a welcomed departure to the tried and true sound synonymous with Belle and Sebastian. Will this album generate new fans is anyone's guess, but the already converted will certainly swoon.

    Major stylistic shift from beloved band

    If you're reading this review, you probably know by now that this is Belle and Sebastian's "pop/dance" album. It's quite different from anything the band has made before. Out with the Smiths-esque jangle, in with the synths. At the core though, what's most important is the song craft, not the instruments. So how are the songs? The answer is that they are about a B or B+ in comparison to the band's well-worn and loved back catalogue.

    You Can Never Go Wrong w/ Belle & Sebastian

    I have ALL of Belle & Sebastian's albums and this is another solid one. The album is kind of a tale of two halves--as the best songs are in the first half of the album and they are so good that the second half of the album is a bit of a disappointment. Still plenty to love here and I do recommend it!

    This is another great CD from Belle & Sebastian. Their unique lyrics are present in every song and draw the listener into their world. For new listeners I'd recommend "The Boy With the Arab Strap" but this CD works well as an introduction for new Belle & Sebastian fans.

    Strong, but not the best

    The new Belle and Sebastian is like an old sweatshirt- good, familiar, but nothing too exciting. There are a few stand-out tracks, but the album as a whole isn't a solid rock. I'd still say to go for it if you're a fan, but don't expect anything too innovative.

    Little bit of a change

    This album is a very good album. If you like previous Belle and Sebastian albums you will probably enjoy it but be aware it is a lot more uptempo. In fact you may be actually tap your feet! Very well produced.

    They may have lost a bassist, a cello and a trumpet player, but Stuart Murdoch, the crown prince of twee chamber pop has taken his crew to Atlanta, found their groove things and learned to shake it.
