The Best Album Released in the UK in 2007?,
This review is from: Are We Not Horses (Audio CD)
Well, is it? For one of the hottest groups in North America, a band who stunned all who saw them at the glorious SXSW festival in Austin, Texas , in March, here is the grand opus. Rock Plaza Central with a name to die for, launch a concept album somehow based on a story about robot horses. Implausible as it sounds their beatiful loose Americana played over Chris Eaton's poetic lyrics and aching vocals may well be the album of the year already. Standout tracks abound but make sure you hear "I Am An Excellent Steel Horse", "Be Joyful, My Children" and the closing track, "We've Got A Lot To Be Glad For". A great sound from Toronto, again.
