Broken Records, 'Let Me Come Home' (4AD)

Let Me Come Home
Critical Mass
Release Date: November 2, 2010
Label: 4AD

by Joe Gross

This Scottish group's debut album threw some welcome Gaelic peat onto their roaring arcade fire. But Let Me Come Home goes widescreen with a vengeance, trading in too much of the band's unhinged jig and bounce for a more generic-sounding epic soundtrack -- guitar and bass to the front, strings in the middle distance. On "Modern Worksong," Jamie Sutherland croons and projects where he once just threw his arm around your shoulder. He still doesn't want us to give up, but it sounds less like he's testifying about the girl who changed his life and more like he's addressing the masses.
