We currently know 11 reviews for "The Tourist" by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. People have mixed feelings about the record but in general seem to like it.
"While the holistic craftsmanship of Ounsworth's musicality is impressive, ultimately it's his anguished, romantic vocal croon that sticks with you on The Tourist, ever dichotomously imbued with both a deep sense of loneliness and a pop-centric sense of self-determination."
"A decade ago, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah were a modest, rickety band bearing the albatross of hype; today, they’re an amorphous, musically adventurous entity basking in the freedom of no expectations."
"Some patience and repeated plays may be needed to digest all the aesthetics offered on The Tourist, but any listener up to the challenge with a yearning to expand their musical palette will be rewarded with a terrific album full of playful and energetic indie rock."
Under The Radar
"There is nothing on this record that is going to convert the previously disinterested. But although Ounsworth is still yet to return to the high watermark of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah’s first record, he has produced his most affecting work since then."
"A little moderated, perhaps, but more mature too. For the first time in years, we are able to imagine that Ounsworth’s best work might still be ahead of him, rather than behind him."
Drowned In Sound
"While there’s some quirky songwriting and clever lyrical tales on The Tourist, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah just don’t seem to be hitting the mark that they once did."
The Line of Best Fit
"This fidgety, off-kilter return is exhausting."
"The Tourist is a welcome shift from the amorphous electronica of the band’s last effort, but the haphazard pacing and overreliance on platitudes and generalizations prevent the album from fully achieving the emotional potency aimed for by Ounsworth’s trembling voice."
"As The Tourist continues to unravel, so too do the tracks--captivating in parts, but lacking a unifying urgency."
"The album's missteps aren't egregious; rather, it's that after multiple listens, very little sticks. The Tourist's inconspicuousness is its biggest issue."
"The Tourist isn’t ‘the worst’, but it’s far from the journey its designer hopes it to be."
