Steve Lawson Has there ever been anything by Polar Bear that I don't think is wonderful? No, no there hasn't. More loveliness here. Exquisite, writing, playing, production, concept, everything. Just great Favorite track: Dont Let the Feeling Go.

Alex Some great loose atmospherics in this. Takes you somewhere good, slows down time. Nothing seems to fight for the lead, it all intertwines beautifully. Favorite track: We Feel The Echoes.

Christopher Musial Wonderful, dreamy quality to this release. More of a back-to-basics acoustic vibe than the last album. Personally, I think they're pretty successful regardless of what sonic area they explore. Listen! Favorite track: We Feel The Echoes.

John Cratchley I like the way this album has been mixed: with the percussion and bass in the foreground and the saxes in a kind of dreamy space behind...it seems to flout normal convention....great!
It is also beautifully sequenced to my mind and flows effortlessly.
I actively avoid all thoughts of categorisation with Polar Bear (a pointless exercise anyway) as influences vector in from everywhere...they sound like no-one else though...and,yes,they can play quietly too.

about

After the dark complexity of recent output, 2015's Same As You is presented in sharp focus, as inclusive and accessible as the title suggests, while still maintaining the playful experimentation on which the band has made its name.
The album’s focal point ‘Dont Let The Feeling Go’ sees leader Sebastian Rochford take on vocal duties alongside Hannah Darling and a choir of friends and collaborators. It is Polar Bear at their most direct: the song’s infectious life-affirming mantra stays with you long after the record has ended
