Alternate Perspectives: 'God Help the Girl'
Being an unabashed B&S fanboy, I've been listening to it the last couple of days and have found it pretty neat, though I haven't really thoroughly examined it yet (also listening to the new Regina Spektor, y'know). Tami Fertig, who reviewed it for us in print, was a little less charmed (and she's a big B&S/Scottish pop fan!). Over at our sister paper in Phoenix, Thomas Bond was rather impressed, saying, "Overall, God Help The Girl sounds pretty much like a Belle and Sebastian album would, had departed B&S singer Isobel Campbell taken most of the lead vocals and left a few to Murdoch, instead of the other way round." High praise!
