The Beautiful Word - Mystery Pop

Six-tracker from south coast band The Beautiful Word, showcasing their intriguing, although sometimes muddled, English adult pop. The toy piano-driven 'I Got Bored' has a quirky Tim Burton quality that's immediately engaging but unwelcome guitar noodlings spoil the atmosphere. 'This Light' has a rolling country feel; 'Bad Doctor' a jazzier air, suggesting the band don't quite know where their strengths lie. The two female voices also slightly run into one another, rather than offering something different or complementary, the acapella 'Landmines' sounding a little like a studio creation rather than two voices working together. Individually, there's a lot of promise and talent here, just not sure it works as a single entity.
