    Here We Go Magic's sophomore LP-- produced by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead)-- shows a significant amount of promise in its first breaths. Opener "Hard To Be Close" sets a brilliant stage with its layering. First single "Make Up Your Mind" is springy and supple, the kind of dynamic runaround that can hold your attention for minutes with nothing but a simple riff and the rotating accents around it.

It's a collection of songs that all feel like a big white room with a variety of colorful characters constantly moving in and out of doors on either end (sometimes a lot of them, sometimes none at all).
