Belle & Sebastian - The Boy With The Arab Strap

The Boy with the Arab Strap is the third album from the Scottish band Belle & Sebastian.
the album is labelled as twee pop.

The Boy with the Arab Strap is an immediately infectious and delicious pastiche of fey, Nick Drake-ian vocals; lilting pop melodies; shimmery arrangements; croony wonder; and tortured, lit-smart lyrics.

Belle and Sebastian are smarter than the Smiths, wittier than the Beach Boys, more fun than the Velvet Underground, and even more inscrutable than R.E.M.

The Boy With the Arab Strap is to forget that Belle and Sebastian ever recorded an album before it. It is its own animal, and should be evaluated as such.
