From start to finish, your thinking, why the hell aren't this band massive! They are our times Pink Floyd! They are our centurys thinking mans band. Forget Elbow, Coldplay, Travis and all that commercial aldult alternative commercial tripe that we're fed every day by the mainstream culutre that tell us what we should like. BE BRAVE! Step out from the cold and into the light! Make this band what they should be, MASSIVE! A british band worthy of putting into the same catagory as our greatest bands.
Classic song writting, thought provoking lyrics, emotional singing. If your put off by their metal influenced past, don't be. They have travelled some distance down the song writting road since they wrote their debut album for their Metal label Peaceville, when they were 16!!!
Years of touring, many many albums under their belt, and personal tragedy make this album, a beautiful reflecive, coffee and cigar moment.
As you can tell I like it! =)
It's about time NME, MTV2, Kerrang, Rock Sound, Mojo, Q and the like all took notice of this band. It would be a tragedy if ever they broke up, and became a cult band all too late!
