Its production is super-pretty, its lyrics are literate and humorous without being condescending in the slightest, it’s fun to listen to, and there’s just something in the way lead singer and songwriter Paddy McAloon puts chords and melodies together that’s instantly gripping and gratifying.


Smart, sophisticated, and timelessly stylish, Steve McQueen is a minor classic, a shimmering jazz-pop masterpiece sparked by Paddy McAloon's witty and inventive songwriting.

stellar synth pop production!

this album takes you on an emotional joy ride, with the bitter sweetness of songs like Bonny, to the more playful songs like Horsin' Around. the thing that really pushed these emotional moments is the power of the vocal melodies, my biggest criticism would probably be tonal inconsistency but its just nit picking at that point
