Could it be that O'Hagan is simply at the top of the heap -- that he's the pinnacle? Could he be gulp as good as Brian Wilson??!!?! He just might be, thank you very much. Pet Sounds , SMiLE and a scant handful of other prime Wilson works, verses O'Hagan and his ten-plus albums of exquisite beauty and detail could sway the utterly preposterous and fictional battle right there. But it is precisely O'Hagan 's prolific nature that seems to irk his detractors most. Over the course of their career, the High Llamas successfully combined '60s pop sensibilities with burbling analog synth accents and laid-back, West Coast vibes with a NYC session cat's journeyman aesthetic.

Every stylistic element that has ever graced the grooves of their past albums is present here, with synth blurbs and Baroque-via-the-beach string arrangements holding equal footing throughout. Bacharach -ian backing vocals and Wilson -esque instrumentation hold equal ground with Motown rhythms and Steely Dan slick-ery, but the whole thing sounds natural and familiar, rather than over-thought, forced and derivative. Four years in the making, Can Cladders could have come off the presses as an indulgent, overwrought opus.

    Editors’ Notes Sean O’Hagan uses plangent chords, fragile melodies, and sparkling orchestration with a sense of innocence and wonder similar to that of Brian Wilson. For ’s Can Cladders, his exploratory melodic instinct is supported by the band’s beach rhythms—the Jamaican offbeats in “Honeytrop,” the bossa nova in “Boing Backwards”—and disco strings.

    For casual listeners, the Llamas may seem a cheap imitation; for fans of lush, quirky, impressionistic pop music, the Llamas can now clearly stand on their own. Can Cladders is an unusual addition to their recorded canon, as it contains elements of what has made many of their previous recordings stand out/5(15).

    Finally in I have purchased "Can Cladders" by The High Llamas. It's their only CD I didn't already own and what a surprise! It sounds just like every other High Llamas's CD. But that's not a bad thing if you're a fan which I certainly am. The music is wonderful as are all the others/5(19).

    Over the course of their career, the High Llamas successfully combined '60s pop sensibilities with burbling analog synth accents and laid-back, West Coast vibes with a NYC session cat's journeyman aesthetic. Every Llamas album has embraced these creative styles in varying degrees: from Gideon Gaye's decidedly '60s Brit-pop bent, to Hawaii's sprawling and breezy beaches, to Cold and Bouncy's 8/
