I bought this album on the spur of the moment, wasnt planned but glad I did. Ocean Colour Scene prove once again that they are one of the best creative UK bands around. Unfortunatley they have missed out on the spotlight for some reason, maybe this has lead them to produce some of the best mainstream music that is not classed as popular. They have created an album which will appeal to all age groups, mixing acoustic guitar with uk rock music with a throwback to the super successful Moseley Shoals. The Track "On My Way" is probably the best driving / sing-a-long track they have ever produced, an album that grows on you the more you listen to it. Fantatsic, Buy It, you wont be dissapointed.

North Atlantic Drift kicks off with ‘I Just Need Myself’, following in the footsteps of opening tracks like ‘The Riverboat Song’ and ‘Hundred Mile High City’ – a great, upbeat beginning that sets the scene for the next 45 minutes. There is always the chance with new albums that the band may completely change the style which has brought them the fanbase, but it was a relief to hear some trademark tracks that don’t disappoint.
I bought the album not having heard any of the songs, which can be a risk, but having bought ‘Mechanical Wonder’ two summers ago and never growing tired of repeated listenings, I had faith that ‘NAD’ would be of similar class.
Title track ‘North Atlantic Drift’ is simply excellent and on first listen is firmly planted in your mind. It is rare for me to instantly click with a new album, but songs such as ‘I Just Need Myself’, ‘For Every Corner’, and of course, the aforementioned ‘NAD’, are perfect the first time round.
It’s so often the case that when a band have been around for a while their material becomes tired, but this is certainly not so with OCS. They have the talent to consistently release music that is fresh and only gets better with every listen. North Atlantic Drift is an album that should be in everyone’s collection this summer, standing up well alongside soundtracks to summer 1996 featured on Moseley Shoals.

I gave up on new pop/rock music for about ten years, not liking very much of what was played on the radio, happy to play 60's to 80's music which I knew I liked. So when I heard a song called "Make The Deal" one Saturday afternoon in the car I thought that's really good and made a mental note of the groups name, I had known vaguely of their existence, but not of what they were about. Well I bought the album, a bit of a risk not knowing much about them, but I can't stop playing it. It is easily the best album I have heard for years. It makes Travis's 12 Memories sound like insipid muzak.
There are so many excellent tracks but "She's Been Writing" is now one of my favourite songs of all time! and any of half a dozen of the songs could have made me buy this album. One track I don't like too much is, the first single, "I Just Need Myself" if this was all I had heard I would never have bought it so never judge an album by the what is deemed to be the ideal single. I have now started buying their back catalogue of albums and hope I am pleased by what I find.

Ocean colour scene have been around for many years now and throughout their years have produced some fantastic albums - This album does not break the trend. Each album seems to link to the previous release and continue the story from the last album. North Atlantic Drift simply continues the story on from Mechanical Wonder yet if a listener jumps from Moesley Shouls to the lastest release the difference in styles is quite apparent.
Some of the highlights of this album include "For every Corner" with it's instantly catchy chorus and the title track "North Atlantic Drift"
I'm not sure if this album will appeal so much to new OCS listeners or individuals who have not heard any of their recent material. It will however, definatly appeal to the exhisting fans as at the end of the day this album is another fantastic mix of songs all following the OCS story

Ocean Colour Scene broke through with their 1996 album ‘Moseley Shoals’ (which most regard as their first proper album). When that album appeared they were labelled one of the ‘Next Big Things’, thanks largely to the Oasis-led rise of ‘Britpop’ and Chris Evans. But while their contemporaries made it on the back of the trend only to vanish soon after, OCS were justified in their success by sheer talent in both their competence as a band and their songwriting. Even their b-sides could be considered as good as anything their albums contained. They could do no wrong. But then at the end of the millennium, Britpop became unfashionable and suddenly the band found themselves out of favour and being accused of ‘not moving with the times’, with their albums receiving lukewarm reviews. But why should they do anything different when what they produce is so well-crafted, satisfying and, well, dependable? If anything, Ocean Colour Scene have only improved with age. This new album could well be considered as their greatest work yet.
‘North Atlantic Drift’ is a luscious set of perfectly-formed tracks, with none of the sporadic-but-unnecessary experimentation found on a few of their previous albums. This may have been influenced by a change of producer for this one. The show kicks off with lead single ‘I Just Need Myself’, which is probably the most like The Scene of years past, with its crunching guitars and pounding rhythm.
