Review-The Beatific Visions is indie supergroup Brakes’ follow-up to Give Blood and comprises 11 tracks of sometimes dizzying intensity, rattled out in a spritely 28 minutes. Rather like Give Blood, it’s a bold, sometimes brilliant and occasionally ramshackle experience that mostly impresses. But the best thing that can be said about it is that you’ll be desperate to hear it all over again almost as soon as it’s finished. It’s a blast that demands repeated listens, especially in light of his trim running time.
