Album Review

Reviewed 2011-02-27
as reviewed by mr. esq.

'modern rock'/alterna-contempo.
in nutshell: vox sound like david byrne trying to sound like nick cave trying to channel springsteen&bono. same w/music.
yeah, it's kitschy, but it's so damn good.
from edinburgh, scotland. this is 2nd album.
produced by guy that produced mogwai.
RIYL: u2, springsteen, nick cave, the national, killers.
SUGGESTIONS: 1, 3, 4, 5, 7. 8, 10.
*1. afro-tribal drums start. very processed sound. vox like david byrne. moving 'modern rock' song.
2. faster. the mood is maudlin, doomy. damn good u2 kitsch.
*3. BEST TRACK: sad ballad. fem&mal duet. very nick cave. beautiful.
*4. saddy. neo-ambient. it's epic, baby!
*5. uptemp, a song in search of a john hughes film.
6. this is really reaching for the heartstrings. (maudlin as all fuck=FUCK THIS TRACK.)
*7. ALMOST THE ALMOST BEST TRACK; this is another sad, overdramatic reading, but it's fucking beautiful. very springsteen.
*8. driving! it's 'the rocker.'...
9. sad to uptempo: it's 'the message song.'
*10. ALMOST BEST TRACK: yes, there is hope. beautiful lullaby.
