 At first listen, I thought, hmm, Field Music are playing a clever game with their influences. XTC comes to mind. But then, this understated production, this work with the central things of a song - I loved that! Intelligent music, with a heart and a soul! They open up a field - no pun intended! Nice review!

 Quite a few other bands mentioned in a review that claims to want to avoid comparisons to other bands at all costs.

 Yes, Daphina, and this may happen when reflecting the work of band that is very original and highly eclectic at the same time. And, by the way , I just read you 02.31-comment on pop playground ("music criticism"), and i liked your thoughts there very much. DidnĀ“t find a possibility to check your email. "Music criticism" is part of my work in another country, and I would be interested in your background.

 I'm sorry, I really don't understand what you're saying. Did I send you an email? Did you send me one? As for me, I just write music news part-time, not reviews. But I try to keep up with current criticism via Pitchfork, Stylus, etc. and ILM. What I was saying about the review is simple: if you want to compare the band to others, do so. If you don't want to, don't. But don't tell us one thing then do another.
