For some reason, this music touches me in a place where other music doesn't.
You know the story... you catch a riff or hear a melody and suddenly the hairs on your neck and arms suddenly stand to attention. Worldy, poetic and meaningful, I am already hungering for the next album.
Scottish rockers Idlewild have done woders with their last few albums (see what others bought) and this is no different. Challenging and yet accessable, this music is a melange of traditional celtic essence, thrash rock and poetry.
I honestly feel sorry for people who don't like this music. This is class; this is real and this i s more than your average, McFly, Coldplay, U2 -- or just about anything else on the market.
I cannot rate this highly enough. A supreme experience from masters of everything.
Mr Woomble and the boys, if you read this, keep it going, lads. You're onto a winner.
P.S When are you playing Ireland again.
