Biography

That much of Great Divide was written in the back of tour buses, late at night, after Twin Atlantic had stepped off yet another festival stage is evident from first listen. Addictive, arms-aloft anthems with instantly catchy choruses and refrains that beg to be howled back dominate the Glaswegian band’s glorious second album. Bristling with energy and oozing optimism, Great Divide is a ... Read more in Amazon's Twin Atlantic Store

Product Description

BBC Review

In their short career to date, Glaswegian four-piece Twin Atlantic have already supported big-selling fellow Scots Biffy Clyro and American legends Smashing Pumpkins, suggesting they have won the respect of their peers as an act of genuine promise. Unfortunately, this largely disappointing album offers only fitful evidence that they have what it takes to emulate the success of their celebrated contacts.

Founded in 2007, Twin Atlantic’s debut (mini) album Vivarium, in particular the single and standout track You’re Turning Into John Wayne, seemed to herald the arrival of a new band proud of its Scottishness and scathing of the faux-Americanisms favoured by many of their contemporaries. Sometimes loud and dynamic but often subtle and textured, Vivarium was a confident collection that boded well for the future.

Regrettably, the band’s next step has been to turn up the volume, tone down singer Sam McTrusty’s proudly Caledonian twang and go all out to be the next Fall Out Boy. As a result, Twin Atlantic no longer stand out enough from the host of similar power-pop and emo acts that have flooded the airwaves in recent years, and Free is depressingly characterised by unimaginative, one-paced hollers like The Ghost of Eddie and Time For You to Stand Up.

Frequently blighted by the kind of over-earnest, ham-fisted lyrical hand-wringing all too common in this genre, the album’s title-track provides a serious contender for the most banal couplet of the year – "I fell in love with rock and roll / Until I discovered it was false." Don’t retire yet Zimmerman, we still need you. Only Crash Land, with its elegant cello, slows the pace sufficiently to show what might have been, giving McTrusty the space to rediscover the more thoughtful, distinctive vocal style displayed on Vivarium.

There’s a fair chance Free will bring some kind of breakthrough for Twin Atlantic, as the market for their brand of unsophisticated, confrontational angst-rock remains a fruitful ground. Whether they have what it takes to stride forward from the middle of the pack and establish their own identity is another matter.

Ignore the BBC Reviewer - what a load of tripe, this album is great. I loved Make a Beast of Myself and heard Free as a record of the week on Radio 1, so I downloaded the whole album. I have found it a real grower, Edit Me is a really good start to the album, Make A Beast of Myself is still my favourite track but I there are some really strong tracks like The Ghost Of Eddie and I LOVE Crash Land. It's also nice to hear a band that are not worried about the fact that they have an accent and try to tone it down.

It's shocking these guys aren't played on the radio or more in the "public eye"!
This album is fantastic! A definite contender for album of the year
13 tracks -all great, and which could all be on any radio playlist (Apart from 1 instrumental).
Buy this album! See these guys live!

An excellent album. Sounds better everytime I listen to it. If you like Biffy Clyro, you'll love this. An excellent rock band that are gonna be big.

I'd never heard of twin Atlantic before and again I bought it from being recommended by kerrang as well as classic rock. This album has lots of good songs and starts really strongly, songs like free, apocalyptic renegade and yes I was drunk are great. others lack but its still a really good album.

I actually stumbled across Twin Atlantic really recently, after seeing 'Make A Beast Of Myself' of a music channel. I'm so happy that I finally found them - what a band!

The BBC reviewer is far too harsh - I think this album is brilliant. Sam's voice is so distinctive, even although there are other profound Scottish singers out there (namely, Biffy Clyro and Glasvegas). You can feel the emotion when he sings, as if it's the last thing he'll ever do.

'Make A Beast Of Myself' is a cracking song, but there are plenty others, too. 'Free', 'We Want Better, Man' and 'Time For You To Stand Up' are my personal favourites, with 'Crash Land' also providing a down-tempo moment that makes you feel like the world has stood still.

Basically, I love this album. If you like good music, you should buy it!

I had a bit of paper kicking around my car for months with Twin Atlantic written on it having heard a track on the radio that grabbed my attention. Did nothing about it until a couple of months ago and boy am I glad I bought this. It has also really grown on me. Some albums hit you in the face and then trickle down the play list. Every time I play this I hear something different I hadnt picked up before.
I totally agree they should be on the radio more
Youd be forgiven for thinking the first few bars could have been the start of a Guns and Roses track (similar to Welcome to the Jungle) then the vocals reminded me of Blink 182 giving it a more pop feel, but then became more rasping and powerful and good to hear the dialect which adds to the raw feel and emotion of the music.
Track 5 had the overtones of 500 miles but the proclaimers are twee in comparison to this.
And then you forget trying to make comparisons as these guys are in a league of their own - which was how I also would describe the Killers (which I love).
For me the mark of a really great rock band ( of which this is one) is one that can take hints of all sorts of things and blend them into their own unique style which is just...well.. them and no-one else.
I totally agree with the reviewer who said 'All killers, No Fillers' as every track is different and every one demands your attention. No temptation here to skip a track to one of your favourites. If you love great new rock music with a huge variety of beat, strength, bit of acoustic, guts and passion, drive, musical skill and interesting lyrics then BUY THIS. Superb.

When I first heard of this band, someone described them as a cross between biffy clyro and the foo fighters which put me off a bit. For years now the foo fighters have been releasing albums of "filler" with only a couple of good tracks and I was concerned that twin atlantic may follow in a similar vain. I needn't have worried.
"Free" does have the big hitters, particularly "make a beast of myself" which will have you screaming along with the chorus within a couple of listens, but the album as a whole really is outstanding!
The first three tracks really are an excellent album intro on a similar anthemic note, whilst "crash land" shows a softer side to the band with Sam McTrusty's vocal range shining through. Brilliantly simple!

If you get chance to see this band live, do it. You won't be disappointed!
