Much has been made of the omission from this CD of the song `Fade Into You' (sung by Sam Palladio & Clare Bowen, a.k.a. Gunnar & Scarlett). Some kind of `licensing issue' according to producer T-Bone Burnett. Which sounds like bull to me - the song's already been broadcast on the TV show, so how can there be licensing issues about including it on the soundtrack CD? Apparently it's now available to buy on download - but not in the UK! (But don't panic, you can find free downloads if you look... did I say mp3skull? No, I didn't say that...)

There's a lot of nonsense being written about this album. I was initially put off buying it after reading the 'official' review on this Amazon page. But I needn't have worried...

Basically, this album is exactly the same as the previous two. So if you liked those (which I really, really do) you will definitely like this one. That may sound harsh but I don't mean it in a bad way. Let's face it, most bands/artists sound basically the same from album to album - which is why their fans love them! (Yes, I know there are exceptions...)

I really like this band - one of my favourite new bands of the last 5 years or so. Their sound is familiar, not musically inventive or… Read more
