Yes, this is the first Belle & Sebastien CD I bought but it's also my favourite. It's much more varied than the other CDs which I find kinda boring. The two amazing tracks are "The Model" and my all time favourite "Waiting For The Sun To Rise". I don't really like the jaunty stuff later on (sounds very 60s and musically a bit dull), but the really beautiful arrangements and haunting melodies of these two tracks make up for them twelve-fold - outstanding!

With their fourth album Stuart and the Bellenders are covering familiar ground here. The challenge is, as always, how to move on as a group and yet not leave behind the fans who love your older stuff. Well, as we've seen before, the B&S back catalogue is a struggle; torn between their lo-fi roots and the big production now available to them they end up compromising their sound, trying to recreate the old days in a new environment. This album achieves that better than "The Boy with The Arab Strap" (for me the low point of their entire career), and begins to hint at the changes in store for the future.
FYHCYWLAP is possibly the bleakest album they've released, however it contains some of the best songs they've written. Album opener "I Fought In A War" and the chilling "Chalet Lines" show a real emotional depth that flies in the face of critics that try to peg them as lightweight or twee. "Chalet Lines", with it's tale of date rape at a holiday camp is very difficult to listen to - we're not accustomed to hearing songs with this much power in our power pop records, and the first person narration makes it infinitely more unsettling. The closest analogue I can think of in pop music is the Smiths track "Reel around the Fountain"...
By way of injecting some black comedy into the proceedings the band then follow up this masterpiece on the album with the throwaway, but still pretty, "Nice Day for a sulk", an intentional irony I'm sure, most notable for the attempt to rhyme "sulk" with "milk"...
On the whole it's definitely not the best B&S album ("Beyond the sunrise" alone guarantees that...), but it contains moments to rival any of the others ("The Model") and it should be part of any music fans library.
PS. The Penguin Paperback featured on the cover ("I fought in a War") is entirely fictional.

I like Belle & Sebastian in spite of myself. I realize their flaws but at their best (as on "Boy With The Arab Strap") they fill a niche that no other band can, and do it with wit and style.
Unfortunately almost all of that wit and style are missing here. To sum up, the Stuart Murdoch songs on here are pretty good, if very gloomy; not his best but certainly not throwaways. The problem with the Murdoch songs is that they sound a lot like Belle & Sebastian "doing" Belle & Sebastian. That is, there's a certain amount of self-referential, unintentionally self-parodic stuff going on. The lyrics are not as sharp and witty and in some cases the new songs sound like old ones. "Nice Day For A Sulk," in particular, is simply a rewrite of "The Boy With The Arab Strap" slowed down with different lyrics. In short, the Murdoch songs are acceptable but not great.
The songs by the other band members, on the other hand, are largely awful. The guy with the groaning, tuneless voice and the labored classical guitar who does "Beyond the Sunrise" should immediately take up accountancy, BECAUSE I NEVER WANT TO HEAR HIM SING AGAIN. EVER. The Isobel-sung songs are hampered by her voice, which is frankly quite weak, and "Family Tree" is too wispy even to be called twee. It dissolves into inanity before it even reaches your ears. I may be in the minority but I think the band will get along fine without Isobel Campbell.
Overall this album is a real disappointment. It's scattered, unfocused, has at least one truly awful song that never should have been recorded, and even the best material on here is not up to the standards of their earlier work. Don't make this your first Belle & Sebastian purchase, and even if you are a fan, give this one a wide pass.

I picked this CD up because somewhere in the back of my mind Belle & Sebastian is one of those bands you were supposed to own, and I had yet to own any. I have to say I was quite pleased with this purchase. Listening to this CD makes me feel like I am enjoying the soundtrack to a campy 60's European film. There are a lot of jazzy tunes complete with piano, violins, etc. Granted there are some more somber, low-key tracks but I usually feel quite upbeat when listening to this album. Nice European twee pop.

I got all their albums at almost the same time but this was the last one I got and when I first listened to it I said it was my favorite. Since then there were times when I said Tigermilk or The Boy With the Arab Strap were favorites but I always come back to this one. It has a wider vareity of sound than other albums and besides "Beyond the Sunrise" which would've been better on a single, but isn't bad here, the album flows like water. If I could only have one of their albums it would be this one, perhaps for the flashes of 1983 that go through my mind when I hear it. The highlights are "I Fought in a War" which as someone already pointed out sounds almost exactly like Duran Duran's "Ordinary World", "Don't Leave the Light On Baby", "Nice Day for a Sulk" and "Family Tree".
