Ein glänzender, schillernder Popsong ist »Jonathan David« mit fast naiv anmutenden überschwänglichen Sechziger-Harmonien, ein Song, zu dem man nicht stillsitzen kann. Dennoch: Ein B&S-Fan kann nicht unkritisch sein mit dieser Maxi. Denn diese pure Pop-Perle ist eben auch dies: Ein wenig glatt. Und nach dem 100ten Mal Hören nicht wirklich spannend. Trotzdem: Vier Sterne.
Vielen Dank für Ihr Feedback.

This is yet another impressively off-the-wall, retro-flavored EP from Belle and Sebastian. And while "Johathan David" is a pleasant enough tune, I still wish the rest of the band would just let Stuart Murdoch handle all the A-sides -- case in point: his jaw-dropping "Take your Carriage Clock and Shove It" easily outshines anything else on this release. Democracy is a fine concept and all, but would the Beatles' discography be as impressive if Ringo insisted on writing half the band's tunes? I mean, wasn't one "Don't Pass Me By" enough for everyone? And how about "Octopus' Garden"? That was a real toe-tapper!

Just when I thought that the whimsy and elegiac wistfulness of the "If You're Feeling Sinister" album was gone forever, Belle and co give me this. Thank you. Jonathan David took a few listens for me to catch on, but it is sort of in the track of "Legal man". They have the same psychedelic organ swirling in the back ground, with a truly catchy chorus and an inventive melody. It took me a while to decide that I liked it, but now I really like it alot. It is my favorite song that Stevie (I think that is his name) sings; I usually avoid listening to him much. That said, the other two tracks are where the money is. "Clock" is beautiful, almost majestic in it's pathos, and lovely. It feels like it were a bouquet of flowers sadly left out in the rain as their petals drop into the mud. "Loneliness" feels very much like classic B&S, with a great melody, good hooks, and beauty to spare. Both are sung by Stuart...which is, of course, a good thing. I think that isobel and steve both have functional voices, perhaps even both more "pretty" than stuart's nasal self. However, he inhabits the soul of the music more strongly, and I think he understands how to sing more than they do. Bravo. I can't wait for more.

I'm pretty sure I'm not alone on this one. Like every other Belle & Sebastian release, I raced out to buy 'Jonathan David' but when I got it home, that old familiar sense of dread kicked in. What if they finally lose it? I'm 30 and I listen to tons of music. Belle & Sebatian are one of the only bands that reduce me to an enthusiastic 15 year old anticipating a new Smiths record. I can't afford to lose them! So, after circling it a few times, I finally threw it on & my first thought was "No! Not another non-Stuart Murdoch song! This democracy has to end!" My ears pricked up a bit at the Zombies-like middle acapella bit so I knew SOMETHING was going on. Besides, I thought, most truly brilliant songs don't get you on the first listen. That was a week ago & I cannot get this single off my turntable or out of my head! The melody is insanely clever & catchy & the orchestration is perfect as usual. The 2 flip sides are both good Stuart songs - I almost take for granted the high standard he maintains in his writing. Still, it's the A side I keep returning to. I imagine there will be a split decision among B & S fans on this one. It's a subtle one - but seriously, I haven't had a song this stuck in my head since the Clientle's 'Reflections After Jane' a few years back. The only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is because 'If You're Feeling Sinister'is (unfortunately for B & S) the standard by which all their other releases will be judged & it's basically perfect.

This is, by far Belle and Sebastian's best work. All three songs are perfect examples of the band's varying sounds. The title track is a bouncy, retro sounding pop tune; Bacharach and the Beatles are definitely present here. "Take Your Carriage Clock..." has one of the most beautiful string arrangements I've ever heard, on a B+S record or otherwise. Stewart Murdoch's lyrics tell the tale of a man who can no longer stand his own mundane job and poor treatment. There is a great anger in his voice, but he pulls it all off in such a refined way, the listener hardly even notices it. The EP closes with "The Loneliness of A Middle Distance Runner", a more layed back track with a terrific chorus: "And no one cares, Oh you care I know, you care I forgot for a while". All in all, a wonderful collection, and a perfect introduction piece to one of the finest bands in indie rock.

this cd is definitely a bit of an oddity. that said, it is incredibly addictive. "jonathan david" is both clever and fun, and in the tradition of b&S, bittersweet. it's one of their songs that makes you want to jump around as you sing along, as if in your very own musical in the privacy of your home. "take your carriage clock and shove it" has gorgeous string arrangements and the lyrics are beautifully harsh. great for when you've had a rotten day and are feeling spiteful. "the loneliness of a middle distance runner" continues the mood: "you care i know...i forgot for awhile" ::awesome guitar riff:: --how amazing are these people?! oh, to the person who mentioned iron maiden, "the loneliness of the long distance runner" is also a british story by alan sillitoe, from the 1950s. yep, they're smart ones. indulgently sour and sullen, very charming, a great buy.
