Great album, 4 April 2005
I bought this album based on the single, hounds of love. I thought it was a bit risky doing a cover version for the first single, but they pull it off well, and i think this band have a lot of potential.
I havent heard an album anything like this before, but thats maybe what attracts me to it so much. There is such a variety on this album, with some songs boasting infectious guitar riffs, such as 'decent days and nights', 'le garage' and 'carnival kids', and there is also one song called 'danger of the water' which really interests me, as it involves the band members creating individual harmonies with their own voices, to which i think is a very effective. Other songs are more 'fun', with the band divulging in different styles and have an incredible toe-tapping factor to them! And capping it all off, theres 'hounds of love', which i personally think is a great track, especialy with the 'oh oh oh, oh oh oh' at the beginning.
If your into indie/alternative or generally want 2 try something new, i really recommend giving this album a try. If your looking for something more meaningful and perhaps momentous, then your best off sticking to your mainstream bands. Otherwise, give them a try!
