Editorial Reviews
Product Description:
Aidan Moffat and Malcom Middleton return with another intense and powerful work. Aidan's first person tales of relationships gone awry have always made for uneasy listening, but they've never had a backdrop as lush and stirring as this. Standard jewel case. 2001 release.

Gentler, Nastier, April 16, 2001
Reviewer: Dirk Hugo (Cape Town, South Africa) - See all my reviews
Arab Strap's unique appeal has always lain in the juxtaposition of Malcolm Middleton's elegant instrumentation with Aidan Moffat's sinisterly laddish carnal obsessions. Occasionally their songs have an upbeat and rogueish soul quality, vocals drawled in a heavy Scottish brogue over a curious Glaswegian Motown beat, but it is the slower and more spacious songs on which Arab Strap truly shine. 'The Long Sea' is easily this album's finest, showcasing chiming guitars and meandering keyboards with a Middle Eastern quality that are later overwhelmed by a wall of rich and sumptuous feedback.
