about

4/5 MOJO - Their new album, The Endless More And More, sees them continuing to make music that is sophisticated and liberating. Full of Anglican charm and finely crafted tunes. It sounds like a consecration of three decades of wild adventurism.

4/5 SHINDIG – Possessing enough hooks on which to hang a chapel full of hats. Here their chops are fried to a crisp edge, from the triumphal opening bars of 'The Splendour Of The Universe' and scorching 'Fountains Of Neptune' to the raga-lite drone of 'The Open Window' via the luscious ballad 'Winter Song' and shimmering Soft Boys-meets-'Corporal Clegg' of 'Albert Hofmann'.

4/5 Q MAGAZINE – There's enough phospherescent melodies here to brighten anyone's day.

4/5 PROG MAGAZINE – The Endless More And More represents what can be achieved when you take a genre such as psychedelia, which you’d think had been rinsed dry by now, yet approach it with an expertise and passion.

8/10 CLASSIC ROCK – The cult London psych merchants continue to display remarkable levels of creativity and inspiration – astonishing for a band whose roots go way back to 1987.

GOLDMINE MAGAZINE - Twelve songs strong, and opening with a fanfare that would feel more at home on a Northern Soul dancehall than another night at the Fourteen Hour Technicolour Dream, the Chemistry Set’s latest lands in a nifty gold vinyl limited edition, gatefold sleeve and super-fold-out poster… and if you really want to continue calling them a psych band, then you need to redefine your parameters fast. This is glorious pop, plain and simple.

TERRASCOPE – It's wonderful and timeless, a stone cold classic.

HEYDAY RECORDS – The beauty of this album is in the detail. I've said before that these guys know their way round the studio and here is further proof. Every time I listen I hear something new and interesting. I really appreciate that bit of thought in the arrangements for songs and ChemSet never disappoint. This is some of the best British neo-pop-psych I've heard in some time.

THE SOUND OF CONFUSION - Fans of the Super Furry Animals, R.E.M. and Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd should immediately rush out and grab a copy of this record. This is definitely a sunny record filled with 55 minutes of '60s pop hooks, modern recording magic and quality songwriting.

COLOUR HORIZON - Dave Mclean and Paul Lake have opened their interstellar toy box of myriad sounds and vibes and let loose a swarming groovy shit. Pop hooks are melded with a grand sensibility, optimistic delivery, unwavering self-belief and a sly sense of humour.

HARMONIC DISTORTION - Time may have passed but thankfully talent lasts. From the opening fanfare of 'The Splendour Of The Universe' there's a sense of vigour, a renewed sense of purpose. This track in particular is a great calling card, combining a psychedelic mindset with the bombast, swagger and melody of mod-rock. With all the sonic hallmarks of psych-pop intact (Mellotron strings, snatches of sampled dialogue, fairground organs, backward guitar solos etc.)

SOUNDBLAB – Shout it to the world that you’ve just enjoyed the first great release of 2016.
