Audible Editor Reviews

Scott Plagenhoef's examination of If You're Feeling Sinister opens with a look at the aura of mystery and obfuscation around Belle & Sebastian and how this led to the creation of a thriving community of fans centered around the Sinister List. Plagenhoef has no wish to destroy Belle & Sebastian's mystique - as a fan, he understands that part of their appeal lies in their inscrutability. Instead, he explains how the cultural milieu of the mid to late 90s allowed the band to find its own idiosyncratic identity. AudioFile Earphones Award recipient Kevin T. Collins' effortless performance and likeable voice highlight the wistful nostalgia of the band's early beginnings.

What the Critics Say

"Plagenhoef knows his subject matter inside and out and has gone the extra mile to research and contextualize the work - a necessary task, since the band refused to be interviewed for the project...it's nice to see a modern classic get some due recognition." (Under the Radar Magazine)
