CD Review: Mew "+-"

The sixth album from these Danish experimental/alternative rockers marks the return of Johan Wohlert, who took a hiatus during the band’s previous record, No More Stories. Wohlert’s re-emergence restores a powerful element to Mew’s music on an album that is equal parts chill and energetic. With the vastly dynamic songwriting on +–, Wohlert’s lines often go from mellow and subdued to epically assertive—all in the course of a few bars.
