"In a musical landscape of creeping conformity, with acts encouraged to consolidate their core appeal and stick to their generic limitations, it takes artistic courage to suddenly swerve off in a new direction – something the enigmatic Texan combo Midlake have done with each successive album." (

"There’s certainly some element of the confessional to The Courage Of Others. The sense of coming clean is inherent in melodies that sound like they were derived from Old World hymns, as well as in the way frontman Tim Smith sings about how he “used to feel” in the squalling “Winter Dies,” or how he once spent time “thinking the world was mine to be lost in” in the alternately plaintive and restless “Rulers, Ruling All Things.” The Courage Of Others has its moments of comfort, like the warm, acoustic “Fortune,” and its moments of deep shadow, like “Bring Down,” which evokes the creepy paganism of the original The Wicker Man. Some songs, like the title track, resemble fleeting thoughts—set to music that sounds like a sunset reflected in the ripples of a pond—and others, like the insistent “The Horn,” recall a preacher warning about eternity.
Coming after the hauntingly archaic The Trials Of Van Occupanther, the more personal The Courage Of Others is bracing—stunning, even. Last time out, Midlake invited listeners to flip through photos of the distant past. This time, they transport us there, and leave us with no easy exit." (
