It's hard to consider a band the same band when its lead singer and main songwriter leaves. You may wish they just called their new band something else, but it doesn't matter—Yuck is still a great band, and Glow & Behold is a fine album. It still packs the same winning combination of complementary influences—the fuzz of Dinosaur Jr., morose mood of Galaxie 500, and wavelike guitars and boy/girl vocal romanticism of My Bloody Valentine—and guitarist Max Bloom, along with bassist Mariko Doi on backups, make for an strong replacement. One listen to songs like the catchy "Lose My Breath" and Smashing Pumpkins-ish "Memorial Fields" and you're whisked away to high school, listening to songs on headphones and wishing the world away. Bloom comes off shy at first, but he really belts on "Middle Sea," which surfs its alt-rock riffs and singalong melody to great heights. Give Glow & Behold a spin and give the new Yuck a chance; you won't be disappointed.
