5.0 out of 5 stars
Back to their best?, 24 Mar 2010
Very nearly I think. Have been listening to this album practically every day since release in an effort to give it a fair go before I see them live again at the weekend.
I can't really fault it. Agree with previous reviewer of it being inbetween Optimist and Jackinabox. On one listen I knew I loved this album.
Stand out tracks for me Embyros, Will Power, Apocolips and Outbursts makes me feel emotionally drained with it's simplicity and beauty.
I'm not going to rate each song individually, however I will say that whichever Turin Brakes album I decide to listen to on the way to work (as I meander through London), it sets me up for the day.
A real return to form after the "grower" that was Dark On Fire. A must buy for fans old, and hopefully new.
Can't wait to see them on Friday night!
