If you are searching for a perfect pop album, then pick up rocketship - a certain smile, a certain sadness. This album hugs your eardrums the same way that your first love hugged you. This is an album that you have to listen to from start to finish. It's about falling in love. It's about being crushed by love. It's about the ache after a relationship has ended.
rocketship are the kind of band you would want someone to put on a mixtape for you. That's how I first heard them. Even though I'm no longer with the boy who made that mixtape for me, I'll always think of him fondly as the one who turned me onto rocketship.
Highlights off this album:
"friendships and love"
"i'm lost without you here"
"let's go away"
Don't be fooled into thinking you're buying another perfect pop album if you buy rocketship's second album 'garden of delights'. It's good, but it sounds completely different from this album! Absolutely all of their 7"s are brilliant tho, so pick up any of those that you can still find!
