SYNDICATE

BritishSeaPowerRockMusicSound: A relatively equal balance of the scrappy, eccentric Brit punk of their debut album, The Decline of British Sea Power, and the woozy, romantic Brit pop of its follow-up, Open Season. The songwriting and lead vocal duties are also equally divided between brothers Yan and Hamilton Wilkinson. Yan tends toward the breathy and dreamy sounds, while Hamilton favors dirty and more direct melodies. Regardless of the tempo or mood, each song has an arena-sized vastness.
Heavy Rotation tracks: none
Medium Rotation tracks: “Waving Flags”; “Open the Door”; “Atom”; “No Need To Cry”
Recommended: British Sea Power’s arty and out-there music always piques the curiosity. There’s plenty on here to like whether you preferred their rougher debut or its more elegant follow-up. But Do You Like Rock Music? is lacking the standout tracks of its predecessors.
Grade: B
