"On the evidence of the eccentric, lurching rhythms, whirring fairground-style organ, strident falsetto vocals and infectious chorus of the single 'Devil in the Detail', London's Silvery seem more than happy to wear the influence of Kimono My House-era Sparks like a shiny button on their uniformed sleeves. And its a sound which crops up on other tracks, most notably on 'Action Force' and 'Star of the Sea. Elsewhere, the influence of Blur becomes particularly apparent, as well as hints of early Adam and the Ants, Cockney Rebel, XTC and possibly even in respect of the band's infatuation with Victoriana and uniforms, British Sea Power. However, much as I'd like to say that Silvery draw all of these influences together into a sound which is uniquely their own, that clearly isn't true. But as Billy Childish might possibly have said, 'Originality is an overrated virtue', and the fact remains that this is a wonderfully ebullient album of � perhaps self consciously � eccentric, quirkily catchy, organ-led Brit Pop with singalong choruses aplenty."
