Hailing from London, England, Automat have just released one of the best albums you'll hear this year. Their material pulls together all the best elements of pop both past and present resulting in a dazzling set of clever, diverse, melodic and infectious songs that carry the definite stamp of class...
The album’s opening salvo ‘I Don’t Mind’ is a clear statement of intent, proclaiming loud and proud that hooks, harmonies and powerful riffs are this bands stock and trade. These sentiments are echoed on ‘Sleep’, ‘A little Sign’, ‘I Don’t Know You At All’ and thoroughly nailed home on the epic Round And Round. Lovers of Big Star/Badfinger – esque pure pop songs aren’t left out of the equation either, ‘Not This Time’, ‘Alright’, ‘Long Way To Go’ and the too catchy to be believed “Comeback Special’ more than cover that end. As if that wasn’t enough, the band have included with ‘Whatever Happened’, ‘Everything I Wanted’ and “Now And Then’ some of the most heart achingly beautiful songs you will hear not just this year but ever. -NotLame.com
