We gave it an A-

A Scottish quintet that makes chirpy, tinkly sounds with high, earnest harmonies, campy keyboards, and folkily strummed stringed instruments. Mitigating cuteness are lyrics that contemplate death, abandonment, and druggy trippiness. The tunes on Forever Young may evoke the ’60s, but Aberfeldy have already written more good songs than Donovan and Country Joe and the Fish put together.
