Format: Audio CD
The band name derives from a sense of not belonging, they say. That feeling is a constant theme throughout the album. According to James “Foe sums up the lyrics of the whole album, a very short three-letter word, for a quite hateful album.”

The often dark and melancholic sound is underlined by their poignant lyrics and despite the obvious musical differences it reminds me of the darkness that also surrounds other welsh bands such as Manic Street Preachers or Funeral For A Friend.

Indeed, a certain animosity can be felt throughout the entire album. Be it on Puppets (‘The inability to think for yourself is all you’ve ever known’), Iceberg (‘How can I send you shivers when you don’t have a spine?’) or King Complex (‘You do anything just to be seen, anything that gets you on the screen’).

The album embraces the sound of the 80s. While the lyrics are dark and melancholic most of the songs are very danceable (Puppets, King Complex, and Inflammable Heart above all). In all of this the vocals clearly stand out. The singer’s mellow voice seems to emanate from the sound of the synthesizers. This is particularly evident on Ebb & Flow, my personal favourite on the album.

All in all Man Without Country have come up with an admirable debut that stands out from the monotony of most current electro pop bands. It is an album with catchy melodies, beautiful soundscapes and meaningful lyrics.

listened to this on Spotify first before buying and I know my daughter would say it's typically me. Electronica with plenty of echo, doomy chords and ethereal voices. So yes, pretty same-y. But if you like this sort of stuff, you'll love this album (as I do). Try the last track - 'Inflammable Heart' & if you don't love it, this isn't for you.
