Where'd You Learn To Kiss That Way?

Album Reviews
In these modern times when Belle and Sebastian are deemed to be heroes of the music scene, a compilation of the greatest moments by the Field Mice seems to be a good marketing strategy as at times they sound more fey than the popular Scots at the moment. This lovingly -packaged 2 CD set (the CDs themselves held in pastel-coloured cardboard sleeves, detailed inlay booklet) contains a generous 36 tracks. Some of the fey moments are lovely ('The Last Letter' and 'Indian Ocean' being fine examples) but in the latter part of their career they dabbled more in electronic forms producing excellent work, in particular the menacing 'It Isn't Forever'. A lot of the music on show here is a little too pleasant at times and it's defintely recommended that you don't listen to both CDs back-to-back.
