Here Comes Everybody + Singles [LTMCD 2332]


"Here Comes Everybody holds up as a touchstone for aching, atmospheric synth-pop, all slinky guitars, crispy percussion, textured keyboards and limber bass" (Pitchfork, 06/2012)

"My favourite Wake record for a variety of reasons, and most of those reasons are quite simply delicious songs. The opener O Pamela is a gorgeous hymn. Send Them Away is equally sublime, aching and reaching into the stratosphere" (Tangents, 02/2002)

"Driving compositions with bass-lines that form and direct the melodies. Behind a driving pop beat that teeter's on punk's edge, Caesar's vocals are deep and dark" (Other Music, 03/2002)

"O Pamela is a beautiful pop song that went completely unnoticed at the time. The naive melody and lyrics really got to me" (Nouvelle Vague, 2006)

"The album stands as a pillar of moody synth pop, still bearing passing resemblance to New Order while retaining the bounce of the Postcard label bands and the cavernous production of Closer-era Joy Division, covering it all in some of the heaviest synth wash this side of Klaus Schulze" (Dusted, 04/2012)
