Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The biggest and best surprise on this album is 'We Were Beautiful,' a sweeping drum 'n' bass 'n' pedal steel number about a midlife crisis in an apocalyptic warzone."

Recording information: Banchory Studio, Glasgow; Creation Audio, Minneapolis; Gorbals Sound Studios, Glasgow; Rocket Science Studios, Glasgow; Sunset Sound, LA; The Green Door Studio, Glasgow. Photographer: Stuart Murdoch. On the eve of launching Belle and Sebastian's project How to Solve Our Human Problems, leader Stuart Murdoch explained his band's decision to release a series of three interlocked EPs instead of a long-player with this: "I think these days when an LP comes out, it's kind of disappointing. Nothing seems to happen, and I thought, 'We've got to do something different.'" Murdoch's way to combat the digital grind harks back to Belle and Sebastian's earliest days, when the group released a series of three EPs between 1996's If You're Feeling Sinister and 1998's The Boy with the Arab Strap, but those releases were spaced out over the course of 1997, where each of the installments of How to Solve Our Human Problems arrived in succession in the first months of 2018. Consequently, all three Human Problems EPs feel cut from the same cloth, all buzzing to a stylish good vibe pitched halfway between '60s modernism and '70s disco. Since this is a series of five-song EPs, Human Problems isn't paced like an LP, which is a benefit. Perhaps there are moments that drift, such as the mellow bachelor pad neo-instrumental "Everything Is Now," but they're designed that way, offering color and texture to music that already had a surplus of both. Like any good EPs, the mild throwaways wind up as endearing as the major items on Human Problems, since they keep the 20-plus minutes of music cooking and provide plenty of room for such fetching accents as oboes and analog synths. Taken as a whole piece, though, the striking thing about How to Solve Our Human Problems is neither the finely honed sense of craft -- evident in both the compositions and sharp production -- nor how the group now excels in churning out a disco epic like the six-minute "Sweet Dew Lee." Rather, it's how Belle and Sebastian have completely devoted themselves to joy, squeezing out any remnants of melancholy that may have lingered in their music. In an era of darkness and confusion, such defiant positivity feels bracingly radical. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

レビュー
  • 2017年末から連続で発表された配信&アナログ限定のEP3枚をまとめた作品。リリース順に曲が並んでいるのだが、きちんと全体の流れも感じられるため、もともと合体して〈アルバム化〉することが想定されていたのかも。前作で開花したダンサブルなシンセ・ポップと初期のようなネオアコが混在していて、ベルセバの歴史を一気に辿れるような内容。地元グラスゴーの新鋭、カーラ・イーストンの参加曲が瑞々しくて最高だ。
