This band is sheer class! You'd think it was the music of a band that has finally matured after 10 years of hard graft. What makes this cd so incredible is that it has no weak spot. Every song is a joy and just gets better the more you listen. At first, tracks like "100% Proof" and "Promises" jump out at you but its the melodic classics like "St John" and "Shadows" that just buzz around your head and put you in a great frame of mind. You really feel like you've found a little music gem with Black Car, and why they aren't all over the music pages is beyond reason or just demonstrates how thick the music press must be.
Yes, bands like Longview, Elbow, Raidiohead, Budapest, Kent, Lowgold, Interpol, Snow Patrol, Keane and Lonwave are all producing fabulous music, but this cd is almost impossible to take off the machine. If you like any of the bands above, you will not be disappointed when you buy Black Car!
