The models on the album cover are Alex Klobouk, Natasha Noramly, and Marisa Privitera. The album earned the band its most successful chart performance yet, reaching in the UK Album Chart and on the Billboard 200 in the United States, selling 20,485 units in the first week
On sixth proper album The Life Pursuit, Belle and Sebastian want to teach the world to sing, in however imperfect harmony. Where the recent live re-recording of 1996's If You're Feeling Sinister draped their most appealing songs in apposite finery, the band's latest extends their newfound confidence to content as well as delivery, and stands as the finest full-length by Stuart Murdoch and his shifting collaborators since that distant pinnacle.

The Life Pursuit is the logical next step forward, retaining Murdoch's signature wry vignettes but dressing them in new sonic colors. Although their collaboration with Horn started Belle & Sebastian on this path, he has been replaced with producer Tony Hoffer, best known for his work on Beck's Guero, Air's 10,000 Hz Legend, and Supergrass' Life on Other Planets. On each of those records, Hoffer was able to retain the artist's core identity while expanding their musical horizons, and that's the case with The Life Pursuit.
After their first three records, it may have come as a surprise that Stuart Murdoch would ever release such an extroverted album; yet, twee signifiers aside, Murdoch has always been a pop connoisseur in disguise, with a remarkable knack for melody and arrangements. The Life Pursuit allows him to indulge these pop.
Written almost entirely by frontman Stuart Murdoch, Belle And Sebastian's sixth album is a magnificently assured and diverse pop record. With nods to such influences as Cornelius, Manfred Mann, and David Bowie, The Life Pursuit mingles the folky, be-sweatered pathos of the group's earliest work with joyfully satirical late 60's sunshine pop, and the sophisticated 80's-influenced work reminiscent of their prior album, 2003's Dear Catastrophe Waitress.
