It seemed like it would be impossible to improve on "Loveless Unbeliever", but they did it. The album went halfway around the world, showed up on hundreds of "best of" lists of the year, was mentioned by and included in some of the most prestigious press about music and culture in general. Up to four singles came out of their compositions. They toured all around the planet and were a hit wherever they went. And now their new album is here and they have left us totally speechless. "Reading Too Much Into Things Like Everything" is a better version of THE SCHOOL. The arrangements are, if it's even possible, even more delicate, more elegant; the emotions make your hair stand smoothly on end and the vitality and freshness are just as strong as they were on their first single. Because Liz and her crew are capable of writing songs like "Where Does Your Heart Belong", which would stand out on its own strength on a compilation of the best songs by THE RONETTES or THE SUPREMES. The album opens with a song like "What's Just Begun", which Brian Wilson and Burt Bacharach would unanimously applaud. Stuart Murdoch is thinking that he has to go back to doing songs "It's Not The Same" and "Never Thought I'd See The Sun". The RAMONES can't stop dancing to the rhythm of "Why Do You Have To Break My Heart Again". Jack Nietzche and ABBA are hugging while they remember the first time they fell in love, as they listen to "Baby Won't You Stay With Me Tonight". And all of this without forgetting for one second that we're listening to Liz and her crew. Because that's how the new THE SCHOOL album is: well-assimilated classics that are loaded into a collection of impeccable songs; we almost dare to say inimitable.
