When people talk about the britpop era, everyone always talks about Oasis, Bur and sometimes Pulp, but it’s a bit surprising that a band like Supergrass is never involved in the conversation. I realize their music is can fall outside that simple ‘britpop’ label, but the same can be said for the other bands involved. Regardless of that, Gaz Coombes has always proven to be a great songwriter and that is very evident on his latest solo effort Turn The Car Around. The songs found ... read more

I'm surprised to see that Overnight Trains is the least liked song on this record (at the time of writing), since it absolutely captivated me from the first second. This feels to me like an extremely cohesive record, where Coombes is able to explore the subtle variations of the psych-ish indie rock sound he has created. There's not that much to say: the production is beautiful, the guitars sound gorgeous, it's simply great indie rock. I do agree with some reviewers that there is little ... read more

Hey I’m bopping

Okay so yeah this definitely isn’t the most insane HOLY FUCK MY MIND IS BLOWN album on the face of the planet but honestly I can appreciate it for writing some good hooks and having some solid material. I love the dudes voice a ton. I also love the production which is pretty playful at times. Overnight Trains is my favorite song on here and I think it has a beautiful piano part that ends in a really satisfying way. Don’t Say It’s Over, Feel Loop and ... read more

As someone who never really dug supergrass, I like this one quite a bit

The songs are all distinct enough to be their own pieces but make up a really cool, psychedelic work that flows well and brings unique sonic elements to the forefront.

Has some nice moments. Don't always feel the passion and poise that Gaz is going for in the vocal performances here but the guitar work should be applauded (no doubt inspiring the art) even if it sounds more or less the same track to track...

If you are looking for a very simple album to listen to that drowns out all the garbage thats been put out this month I highly recommend this album, it's short and sweet and has a few cool surprises on it. Definitely not going to be my favorite album of 2023 but a solid one to start the year off with

This is what most Arctic Monkey fans we're hoping for last year.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't conflicted.

Gaz Coombes is an artist I had never heard of nor had I ever thought to check out before the release of this EP, so I went in with no expectations whatsoever. And still I somehow feel a little bit disappointed by what I got.

And not because it was bad either, quite the opposite actually. Every song on here is great, but they're all just as great as each other. Despite sitting firmly within the Indie Rock genre throughout this entire project, Gaz ... read more

This thing just wasn’t very interesting at all. Sure, the songs sound nice but ultimately they feel very formulaic and very hollow.

He tries to incorporate some artsy elements into his tracks but I just find the core ideas of the songs quite dull.

Confesso que gostei mais do que eu imaginei que gostaria. Surpreendentemente "Turn The Car Around" te diverte com seus refrões poderosos e os vocais impressionantes de seu vocalista — Gaz Coombes.
Apenas tiraria a primeira "Overnight Trains" e deixaria o álbum começa logo com um dos seus maiores destaques: "Don't Say It's Over".

Um álbum de indie rock decente. Não tem muito o que mostrar, mas também não se ausenta. Curto, porém tem quantidade de faixas suficiente para proporcionar uma escuta agradável e que não fique repetitiva com seu som não muito aberto a experimentações; parece não encontrar necessidade para se aventurar em outros espaços e camadas, pelo menos é bem feito dentro de seus limites.

Destaques: Feel Loop (Lizard ... read more

This is album is a confusing one. I like it, even though it's one-note as hell, which is mostly because of the production that can get repetitive by the end. The project is literally carried by the vocals that are just phenomenal. The songwriting is alright, there are some nice hooks here and there, but without the vocals, this would be pretty average.

Uma pequena surpresa do indie rock pra mim, ele acerta no estilo musical que o arctic monkeys não consegue tem 2 álbums, eu realmente gostei, mas ainda não me conecto com o indie rock tanto assim

This is Gaz's best album yet. His voice is still in absolute top-form and the songs go from absolute soul-crushing ballads (Overnight Trains and Not the Only Things) to inspirational neo-psychedelic beauties (Turn The Car Around and Long LIve the Strange). Absolutely far and away my favourite album of the year.

This Thom Yorke x Gorillaz album is crazy. Yeah this is just some indie type brit-pop we've all heard before from our Arctic Monkey type artists. If you're into that you might love this album but ehh its just whatever. Track 5 is amazing though that's easily the best song.

Best songs: Don't Say It's Over, Feel Loop (Lizard Dream), Long Live The Strange, Not The Only Things, Turn This Car Around

Meh songs: Overnight Trains, This Love, Sonny The Strong, Dance On

decent 5/10
