5.0 out of 5 stars Re-invented the wheel? More changed its function., 14 April 2005
I bought this album on the strength of the single 'Remember Me' which struck me as one of the most lyrically and musically outstanding songs i'd heard in a long-time. Before listening to the album i hadn't expected such a diversity of songs. From the quirky, edgy almost punky 'Favours in the Beetroot Fields' through the hazy, dream-like 'Blackout' all the way through to the melodic ponderings of 'Lately' this album pushes BSP way above their more mainstream contempories. After each listen you notice something about a song you hadn't noticed before such is the depth of Decline. I've heard BSP compared to a few different bands (Joy Division, Echo and the Bunnymen,The Smiths) but never really agreed. British Sea Power have developed a sound of their own which is original and refreshing.
