There's more to Tim Cheshire and his new set of Superhero rockers than just heads-down riffola, as opening track "Secret Life Trees" will ably demonstrate. It's a brave move to put this brooding slow-burner at the start of the album, but one which I believe pays off. We're back on more familiar territory with "Big God Theory" and some muscular yet sympathetic and spacious production from Alan Branch. There are so many dimensions to this record... "Perfect Heart" is a truly beautiful acoustic ballad with vibes and subtle violin from Nikki Frey to compliment Tim Cheshire's vocal tour de force. With some dates coming up soon which will further enhance Glasgow's finest as a live band of note, things are looking very rosy for the new look Superhero, and this album hits all the right buttons.
