4.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected Glastonbury Highlight, 19 July 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Exits (Audio CD)
I stumbled into the Bud tent next to The Other stage at about 5.30pm on the Sunday at this year's Glastonbury in an attempt to escape the sun and The Bravery. I bought myself a beer and sat on a sofa. There was a band playing. They sound pretty good, I thought. Actually, they sound awesome. A glance at a poster on the bar told me they were 'The Boxer Rebellion'. But don't let a clumsy name put you off. Their sound is HUGE. Interesting that they were being watched by Alan Magee that day, as Boxer Rebellion remind me of a lot of his Creation signings in the early nineties - Ride, House of Love, Swervedriver - but with songs big enough to fill a stadium. I was instantly hooked. So I bought this album. And it sounds every bit as vital as that gig. Lots of highlights, but 'We Have This Place Surrounded' and 'Lay Me Down' are big, brooding classics that would bring a tear to the eye of Chris Martin and Gary Lightbody.
