Timeless, classic, intelligent, passionate,
This review is from: The Sun Is Often Out (Audio CD)
As far as I'm concerned, the Longpigs were never really a part of the Britpop phenomenon -- their debut album is too savvy and intelligent to be pigeon-holed like that. This is without doubt a classic album that you can listen too repeatedly. They were (and still are) one of the most original bands I've ever heard.
I dug this album out again recently and was shocked by how much it still thrills me. Haunting, sometimes angry, sometimes wistful, these tunes will get deep under your skin.
If you like unpretentious, frenetic guitar music with close-to-the-bone lyrics from a band that really has no comparison, have a listen to this album. Personal favourites are She Said and Jesus Christ.
