Belle and Sebastian
The Life Pursuit

"The Life Pursuit ... may not exactly sport the glistening results of a rigorous all-band body workout (Stuart Murdoch's voice, for one, remains delicate and properly enunciated), but it certainly takes another step in a more assertive direction." (PopMatters)

"After 10 years, seven sets and a load of vitriol, Belle and Sebastian have outgrown their cult status. On this form they might yet become, improbably, fashionable." (The Guardian)

"There's a real confidence here, not quite a strut, but definitely a swagger ... Belle and Sebastian then: still perverse, still twee, but strong enough to take on the bullies." (NME)

"These recordings are easily their best work in a decade. Where once their musicianship was more about enthusiasm than accomplishment, The Life Pursuit finds them unfurling flute solos, Hammond organ stomps and louche funk basslines with consummate brio." (The Observer)
