Light The Horizon ~ Bedouin Soundclash
This album sounds great from start to finish.
It's an entirely coherent work which I've listened to from start to finish about 50 times already and don't seem to be getting bored of it!
What I love about Bedouin Soundclash is that all their component parts are as good as each other.
Some of the best drumming you'll ever hear, tight bass lines go along with rock/reggae/fusion guitars and of course the most important element for any band: good songs. This album has a more reflective nature than their previous work, with more down-tempo tracks but it still kicks along with their usual groove.

It's been worth the wait for it to come out in the UK.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant - buy it., 2 Sep 2007
It's just as good as their last album, which was awesome. Bedouin Soundclash are, in my opinion, the best band to come out this decade. Their sound is classic guitar reggae / rock crossover, yet still fresh and different. Most of the songs on this album are brilliant, especially St Andrews, Nico on the Night Train, Walls Fall Down, Hearts in the Night, Bells of 59 and Until We Burn in the Sun.

Highly recommended.

Futuristic but at the same time warm and atmospheric, this album feels like it could have come from anywhere in the next 100 years. It's hard to pinpoint where some of the sounds have come from. They appear to be jumbled and non-descript but are strung together with something approaching genius to create a beautiful collection of tracks. Brilliant.
