We couldnt have described this any better, here is a review o the album from stateofemergency.net (4/5 stars): String Theory - 'Spin' String Theory purveys a rich combination of sleazy lyrics, manic vibrato vocals, punchy hooks, and slow ska rhythms. At least that's what can be heard on a first listening of initial track 'Fortune Teller'. Coming on all Fergal Sharkey at a drunken party may be one way of grabbing one's attention, but it is the much more grown-up acoustic indie anthem 'Spin' that carries String Theory's magic recipe of beauty, passion and attractive oddness. The emotional vocal crescendo, constant key changes and disorienting epic structure is a masterpiece that is slightly redolent of Jeff Buckley's 'Grace'. 'Saturday' conveys the same sombre tones and intelligent guitar work as its predecessor, but after that rollercoaster title track, there is a bit of a comedown to be felt. In fact, the whole album, as opulent and lovely as it is, communicates pretty much the same state of affairs. 'Hindsight' strips itself down to vocal atmospherics and acoustic plucking before bursting into a country-pop finale, and 'Orange Flashes' swings on soft grooves and plaintive string scrapes. String Theory is a very mature band making very mature music, and its chance of making it onto bigger terrain is highly probable, owing to the fine calibre of material that this album has to offer. Reggae chops shuffle their way through the middle of the opus in 'Love is Mean', later joined by the chilling and spidery introduction of 'To the Unsung Times'. It is 'Changeover' that brings String Theory back up to their highest standards: all bizarre programmed beats, chiming bass and moody rhythms. Electronics make their presence felt fairly late in the album, with some impressive sampling that tiptoes over the rich sounds of '2 More Days'. 'What will Follow' turns out to be the slow, melancholy number that cautiously ushers the album towards its exit.
