Dan Snaith was forced to change his moniker from Manitoba to Caribou for this album, thanks to a wacky lawsuit by an obscure punk rocker. Despite initial fears that Snaith's name change might indicate yet another drastic style change on his third album, if you're familiar with the 70s rock side that came forward on Up In Flames, The Milk Of Human Kindness won't be much of a surprise. This time round, things are more focused, and his peculiar vision of trance rock psychedelia is less a collection of references than something more personal. Gone is the folktronica that he built his now obsolete name on, but nobody's complaining. Delicate and wistful but explosive and joyful at the same time.
