The Weight Is a Gift

Disc review

For those breathlessly anticipating a follow-up to Nada Surf’s widely acclaimed Let Go, this will not disappoint. The band’s keen sense of pop melody is ever present, and that weird tightrope walk that lets them get away with writing lyrics that would sound trite for most hasn’t deserted them either. The tone is moodily pleasant and only slightly heavy-hearted, shuffling through themes of reconciled solitude and remoteness. A sure-fire bedroom classic.
