  • What are yours expectations about the album?. which album do you think that will sound close to visuals. Im really hoping for some no more stories vibes sometimes hahaha, it would be magical

    • I expect Visuals to be more heavily synth-based overall. More beats and unusual sounds for Mew – I think Jonas will be very heavily leading the album, and his taste will push the band in a sort of M83-esque synth pop meets Prefab Sprout vibe. I also feel that Mew will be less compelled to approach songs with a live sound in mind, and a lot of…[Read more]

      • And without Bo, Johan will possibly feel inclined to track some heavy guitars where appropriate. I know Mads will feature also, with arpgeggios and chords, filling out the soundscape in parts. Jonas might not feel the need to track any guitars – we’ll see.

      • I feel the same. But I would like something more interesting of it, twist quest was the closer, but I hope twist is really like some single, not one of the bests and uniques of the record. Im really hoping for some tricks of the trade kinda thing. It would be awsome

    • I’m expecting their most cohesive sounding album since ATGHK. Could be wrong though.

      Expecting a lot less guitars too.

    • …so who else has heard the album?…

      • I have, a Japanese friend sent me the tracks. (I hope it’s okay that I admit that?)
        I’m liking it way more than +-, but I still feel like the songs are a bit straight forward and “careful”. Not quite as twisty and turny as on the older albums, and not as many layers of sounds. But it’s still a really good album.
        I expected Candy Pieces All…[Read more]

    Where is everybody? In the plusminus era this community was on fire haha.

  • Mew – ‘+ -‘


    This review express almost exactly how i feel about the album. For me its a 8.0 of 10.

    Because, no more for me brought Mew to a new level, it was superb, and for me a classic, + – its very good but in general losts the magic of his predecessor. Maybe the next one will be more complex. But for now lets enjoy + – ^^

    • 1 person likes this.
    • Yeah, I feel pretty similar about it too… I heard Johan say in one of the interviews that what he was listening to a lot was actually Mew’s back catalogue, getting re-acquainted, and I thought that was interesting. I see how their work now is ‘looking back’ a bit…I think it’s good though! Although I’m not sure if Rows experiments enough to…[Read more]

      • Yeah I do understand that feeling. As far as some tracks are well produced still something missing, its that the progression of the song doesn’t convince, yeah there are great details in songs like Rows or Clinging but the progression of them are just not so… Natural, doesn’t actually feels thaaat right. I mean I like them a lot but is just not…[Read more]

    • It’s ok. It’s an ok album. And, sadly, that’s not what I need from Mew after more than half a decade.

      There’s nothing I skip on Frengers, Kites or No More Stories, but this one is chock full of skippables.

      The only ones I’m still interested in hearing at the moment are Clinging To A Bad Dream, Interview The Girls, and Rows. Although I do like…[Read more]

      • Well I don’t think its a ok album haha. Ok album is like 5 of 10 or 6,5 of 10. I do Think as an album that + – is better than Kites or even Frengers, AS AN ALBUM, but its not something that I think ”Wooow this is incredible” My thing with Kites is I think that just the first half is pretty cool. But Still No more Stories is flawless and bring a…[Read more]

    • Finally got to hear the album. I definitely like +- a whole lot more than No More Stories – at least initially. Satellites, Witness, Making Friends, CTABD, My Complications, CTROYO are the standout tracks for me.

      • Yeah I know the feeling. I hope that for you this feeling doesn’t fade quickly hauhau ^^. The thing with + – for me is that I got tired fast of it. I mean Without Clinging Satellites and Making Friends especially

    • This is only my initial judgement, but for now I feel like this album is a 3.5/5. It has some songs which I think are really great or at least very good and stand strongly in Mew’s history (Clinging to a Bad Dream, Rows, Interview the Girls) as well as others which I do enjoy (Satellites, My Complications). I enjoy all the tracks, in their own…[Read more]

      • Yeah, I guess Satellites, Clinging, Making Friends Witness and Rows are the best. Because the actually bring something interesting, I’d say that witness is the more Straightforward from those, Witness sounds like repeaterbeater but simpler haha. My complications is great but I don’t know there is something in this one that really bugs me, its like…[Read more]

    • Definitely better than Frengers (haha take that, Frengers-lovers). And I’ve only heard through about 3 times! Will not be giving any stars or points before I feel like I know each song very well!

      • I love Frengers. Frengers made Mew the band they are today. Kites was a cool concept, but only a few of the songs actually reached the heights of the songs on Frengers… And I’ll say, PlusMinus is the best collection of songs Mew has released since Frengers.

        I have been swinging from not bothering with Night Believer and Making Friends, to…[Read more]

        • I think No more stories is an album that is misunderstood. Its an album that its not for the masses, and that’s what I like on it, there is songs made for masses, like beach or repeater but they still kind different and well worked, they still bring something new, and that is where the magic is for me, sound more interesting. I Think No more will…[Read more]
