'Bruised and battered' is a great description!,
This review is from: Boys Outside (Audio CD)
One of the earlier reviewers describes this as 'bruised' etc and it is the most accurate word I can think of to apply to what I feel is one of the best albums so far in 2010.
Strangely enough, I was never a Beta Band fanatic but this is a dark and stunning album with hints of Joseph Arthur so that will immediately classify this for his fans.
Although it is dark and moody it is not like that all the way through although even the more upbeat numbers are tinged with gloom once the lyrics are listened to!
The one downside is the packaging etc where I threw away the wrapping only to discover that was the only way of identifying the various tracks without typing them out again!
Moody, melancholy, sad are all suitable words but you cannot get away from 'bruised and battered' as covering this perfectly.
A real gem in my opinion that will probably not be recognised for its true worth for some months.
