They still don’t stray too far from that European Gypsy sound that has seen the last two releases sell well. For me The Flying Club Cup probably has some of their strongest tracks, but if anything I’d say that this is their most consistent album to date. There isn’t one weak track to be found here. Having said that at only 33 minutes spread over 9 tracks it’s fair to say that it could have been longer.
Probably the cheeriest and upbeat Beirut album so far…..and I like it.
I’d love to see these guys live and when I noticed they were playing San Fran BathHouse in the New Year I was delighted. Alas, all tickets have been sold out. Disappointing.
Anyway, What about you chaps? Do you like Beirut and what do you make of this album?
