Samuel F Scott of the Phoenix Foundation has described their fifth album as "Test-match music", and he's notwrong: Fandango changes mood and style seamlessly, like a five-day cricket match moving through its phases, so the songs no matter that they vary from the gorgeously pastoral (Modern Rock), through shiny, 80s-styled pop (The Captain) to wistfulpsychedelia (Inside Me Dead) are all serving the team. Though it doesn't sound a lot like Pink Floyd, it shares the quality of that group's early 70s records: it is leisurely, taking its time to reflect rather than rushing to a conclusion. The melodies, though, mean it never shrinks into the background. But, as cricket fans know, Test matches can peter out; Fandango rather does that with its 18-minute closer Friendly Society, which is an aural re-creation of a batting pair seeing out the final day in search of a draw. The Guardian 4/5
