Boomkat Product Review:
Do Make Say Think have fashioned a fourth full-length album of tremendous beauty and depth, more loosely woven than previous records and played with careful, often wistful restraint. The songs on "Winter Hymn..." are eerie and iridescent, composed and captured with mesmerising attention to detail, guided by the band's most intricate and intimate guitar passages to date, instrumental rock imbued with heartrending - yes, even hymnal - narrative ideas. More than any previous effort by the band, this is an album that yearns to be listened to as a whole, or at least in the triptychs defined by the double vinyl edition. Side A is driven by introspective guitar work, full of delicate transitions and devastatingly soulful punctuations. Side B relies more heavily on horns and a recurring jazz groove in the rhythm section, while Side C brings on the rock & pop denouement, beginning with an explosive track that devolves into cut-up and eventually gives way to the celebratory album closer (complete with submerged chorale). Both formats are chipboard gatefold jackets with lovely original artwork by the band. Recommended.
