The songs on "Mexico" have taken their time to get to where they are. They aren't smug little outbursts or reactions, but commentaries on thoughts that have been drawn out for quite some time. They are ruminations on the rumblings that start in men's bellies and get louder and louder until they start shaking out of their pores and the same thing happens to the women who are featured in these songs. No one is immune to these rumblings, these disturbances that start low and softly churning, before picking up their steam and their lather. Lead singer Nick Whetro doesn't just sing about the pangs of love or the disillusions associated with it, but takes the approach at the subject like a guy who's never really had any hands ever covering his eyes. He knows that people are bound to mess up and those things are always complicated. Whetro, guitarist Karl Christenson and drummer Brad Kolberg bring forth a sound that is a bottle of champagne prior to and after its violently shaken and had its cork popped. It's beautiful in its pretty green-glassed bottle for much of the time and then it gets all over the place. We knew it would happen. We knew it would get messy - beautifully messy with the ghosts of the past, with the ghosts of the present and with the lingering last words. - Daytrotter
