Needless to say this is up there for one of my albums of the year. I wasn’t a big fan of the first album but maybe I just need to relisten to it.
For me Lightbody’s vocals are cracking that makes the songs come to life. All things come at once for example – you can feel the pain in those lyrics with his croking / emotional vocals.
Not usually a fan of supergroups but I think this is one of the exceptions for me: Snow Patrol, REM, Belle & Sebastian and Iain Archer! Can’t beat that mix!
