Idlewild have been around for quite a while now, and their previous album '100 Broken Windows' was a great record in itself, and well worth a look if you haven't heard it yet. But lately, and quite unexpectedly, Idlewild have began to get some attention a band of their talent deserves, but usually doesn't get.
On each album Idlewild have show signs of improvement, by simply writing a better set of songs than last time. And that is the case here, it is just a quality album all the way through. It is also well balanced with a good mixture of songs, some are fast and aggressive while others are more slow and acoustic based.
The 4 released singles are a good representation of the album as a whole, they are all quite different styles, yet are all distinctive of Idlewilds sound and are all great songs.
So if you have been a fan of Idlewilds older material, you will like this album, because it's along the same lines as their past work, but more refined, well written and basically better in ever way.
While if you are a new fan, who's only just heard the recent singles, if you liked them, then you'll like this album too.
It really is a fantastic album that I struggle to find fault with, by far the best album of Idlewilds career so far, and one of the albums of the past year!
