Unfortunately, this can't be said about the entire album. While it starts out well enough, the first four tracks dark and catchy and fun, the band soon slips into more standard rock arrangements, with churning, reverby chords instead of syncopated, edgy riffs and rhythms.
Their cover of Beck 's "Sunday Sun," while not bad, does nothing to really make it their own, and "Alright" can never quite figure itself out, how it wants to fit the instrumentation in with the vocals, and ends up being more disconcerting than anything else. That, the issue of resolution, is actually one that seems to constantly plague the Cinematics , even in their more successful pieces.
They're clearly, as a band, concerned with phrasing and musicality, but sometimes their songs seem to consist of separate-but-linked parts instead of being fully developed, whole pieces.
It's frustrating, more than anything else, because the Cinematics ' potential is palpable; there are still some great cuts here, and a lot of energy, but the missteps and the hesitancy and the faltering are enough to make A Strange Education an unfulfilling affair.
