There's a creepy goth veneer crawling underneath Stills lead singer Tim Fletcher's vocals as he sings lines of timeless ennui such as "I'm just so bored of wasting my time/love and death are always on my mind," an undercurrent of dread not unlike Robert Smith or Morrissey coming down from a particularly potent sadness bender. Even happy-sounding titles like LOGIC WILL BREAK YOUR HEART's opening single "Still in Love Song," are portraits in lurking danger, and about-to-boil-over lust and anger. And it works; as overlapping guitars somewhere between power pop and new wave swirl around the intricate, neurotically-Nietzsche-ian lyrics, a rapture develops, as does a downpour of pitch-perfect indie pop.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (11/13/03, p.97) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...[LOGIC...] is a stunner, a rush of shoegazer guitars and suave loverboy angst. They expand on the Eighties guitar-synth chemistry of bands such as the Cure or the Comsat Angels for a sound that could pass for [a] lost New Order album..."
Entertainment Weekly (10/24/03, p.104) - "...The Stills succeed at distilling their influences [the Chameleons, House of Love, and Echo and the Bunnymen] into an inviting update." - Rating: B
Q (3/04, p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 - "Singer Tim Fletcher adds his swooping voice to Dave Hamelin's songs to astonishingly moving effect."
CMJ (11/3/03, p.8) - "...Marked by enviably creative arrangements, hyper-enveloping guitar textures and some of the smoothest vocals this side of Morrissey, LOGIC WILL BREAK YOUR HEART [is] one of the defining moments of exactly what this whole new wave revival has been leading up to..."z
Mojo (Publisher) (3/04, pp.106-7) - 4 stars out of 5 - "Donnie Darko - and you - will adore them."
