Album Notes and Credits
The Hidden Cameras: Lex Vaughn, Lief Mosbaugh, Mike Barry, Andrew Eng, Maggie MacDonald, Joel Gibb, Paul Matthew, Jamie McCarthy, Don Kerr, Mike Olsen.
The Hidden Cameras--all 13 of them--make a big, joyful racket, full of glockenspiel, strings, pianos, guitars, vocals, and intricate arrangements that belie the simple heartfelt nature of leader Joel Gibb's songs. Like labelmates and fellow Canucks Broken Social Scene, the band angles for ambitious vistas and succeeds a good deal of the time, equally adept at big, polyphonic production numbers ("Death of a Tune," "Awoo"); elegant, restrained chamber songs ("Fee Fie"); and PET SOUNDS-ian pop anthems ("Hump from Bending").
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.98) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Backed by a flea-market chamber-pop orchestra and surprisingly danceable beats."
Uncut (p.110) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he melodies that carry them are beautiful, sung with a genuine fragility and less restricted by the orchestral overload of earlier releases."
Magnet (p.94) - "If you buckle your knees at the sound of a perfect pop song, then no amount of risque lyrics should deter you from swooning over the crazy rhythms of the Hidden Cameras' fourth offering."
CMJ (p.48) - "[W]ith flamboyant songs that are joyous instead of melancholic, Gibb actually merits a category all his own."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.112) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he Cameras' on-board string section seems ever more integral to Gibbs' songs..."
