It seemed like it would be impossible to improve on 'Loveless Unbeliever', but they did it - their debut showed up on 100s of 'best of' lists, they toured the planet and were a hit wherever they went. And now their new album is here and they have left us totally speechless.
'Reading Too Much Into Things Like Everything' is a better version of THE SCHOOL. The arrangements are even more delicate, more elegant, the emotions make your hair stand smoothly on end and the vitality and freshness are just as strong as they were on their first single.
Liz and her crew are capable of writing songs like 'Where Does Your Heart Belong', which would stand in its own strength on a RONETTES or SUPREMES compilation. The album opens with a song like 'What’s Just Begun' which BRIAN WILSON and BURT BACHARACH would unanimously applaud.
Stuart Murdoch is thinking that he has to go back to doing songs like 'It’s Not The Same' and 'Never Thought I’d See The Day'. THE RAMONES can’t stop dancing to 'Why Do You Have To Break My Heart Again?', Jack Nietzche and ABBA are hugging while they remember the first time they fell in love as they listen to 'Baby Won’t You Stay With Me Tonight'. And all of this without forgetting for one second that we’re listening to Liz and her crew.
