It wasn’t so long ago that The Chapters shifted focus to immerse themselves in a love of all things Americana. Maybe I’m misreading it, but ‘Looking For Love’ suggests another change of direction, this time in favour of a tight garage guitar sound. It’s not a bad song by any means, but ‘Heart Of Glass’ (no, not a Blondie cover) – which is closer to the Americana blueprint – is far better, succeeding more by trying less.

Give this a bit of time. The arresting song structure and tempo changes mean that the opening track ‘Four Thorns’ doesn’t lodge fully in the brain on first listen – but with repeated exposure it emerges as a powerful and ambitious statement, featuring Ross McNally’s distinctive, emotionally appealing voice. The Chapters have retained the fragile elements that made their debut EP The Indecision Of Arthur Molloy so enchanting, but have added a muscular, masculine quality that will have fans of The Band swooning. There is a pop dimension at times in the choruses that recalls The Eagles – but behind the sweeter moments lurks something epic. There’s a great album in there, waiting to be made…
14 Nov 2006 - REVIEW
The Chapters were a loud rock ‘n’ roll band until they went to ground and discovered a love of Band-era Americana and ambient Floyd.
28 Sep 2005 - Interview
Dunno who this Arthur Molloy is, but he has evidently inspired a record of such sheer beauty, sincerity and substance, he must be a fine and glorious fellow indeed.
