Girls 2nd full album 'Father, Son, Holy Ghost' is the best album I have heard in the last 5 years or so. Though often accused of having no definable sound, other than that of 'indie band' Girls do embrace different genres and styles on a regular basis, particularly on this album with nods to Thrash, Country n' Western, Rock n' Roll, Pop, Accoustic, Gospel etc and the mini-album 'Broken Dreams Club' with it's Latin horn influences BUT it is exactly this quality that make them such a musically brilliant and interesting band who seem to refuse to be pigeon holed into any genres. In Christopher Owen, Girls have the most gifted song-writer of this generation whose lyrics and voice are full of pain but equally hope. Many of Girls songs begin with loss, heartache, regret, sadness etc but mid-way through they often take on an almost 2nd song quality which is hopeful, accepting, forgiving and optimistic that change will occur for the better. Quite simply this is an amazing album from the best and most interesting band in the world at the moment.
