Best White Lies album, 20 Feb. 2014
After their really good debut and a decent, but slightly underwhelming follow-up, White Lies release their third album which turns out to be their most melodic and atmospheric creation. Yes, these songs really are so huge there is no stadium that could hold them. But it's hard not to like them. They don't sound fake, at least to me. And moreover, the whole album maintains a good, if not very good, overall level. But it's definitely not for the die-hard fans of innovation, breaking of genre boundaries, experimentation and so on. It's very nostalgic, both in terms of its mood and its essence.
