the 5th album from the Scottish indie pop outfit continues to meld their distinctive melancholy balladry with upbeat, sunny pop, all backed with wonderful orchestration & enhanced by vocal contributions from neko case & my morning jacket's jim james.

the band decamped to Portland, Oregon, where they recorded this simultaneously complex & simple record with producer Tucker Martine (R.E.M., Decemberists, Sufjan Stevens). "What feels different this time is the elegance & assurance of the music: swooshing & keening in 'Cri du Coeur', marrying 1950s horns to 1980s jangle in 'I Missed Your Party', embellished with subtle percussion in 'This Is Love (Feels Alright)'" 4/5 - guardian, "This is pop music with a real soul to it & Camera Obscura have bared it magnificently" 9/10 - dis.
