The Trembling Blue Stars' fifth album, Seven Autumn Flowers, is no great departure for the group; it is another chapter in the story that began way back in the '80s with the Field Mice. If you've stuck with them this far, you won't find anything here to make you walk away now. The core elements of the group (Bob Wratten's bittersweet vocals, near suicidal lyrics, the minor chords, sweeping synths, gently strummed acoustic guitars, and sweet female backing vocals) are firmly in place.
