5.0 out of 5 stars As If I Hadn't Slept, 21 Aug 2005
This review is from: Warnings/Promises (Audio CD)
Perhaps I've been too long awake, but I'd started to grow weary and bored of music until Idlewild reignited my flame.
It had been a while since The Remote Part, the album which for all its flaws introduced me to possibly the best Scottish band in existence, but when Idlewild reappeared with Warnings/Promises, my adoration for the scene kindled once again. Something in the folky roots slides into your heart, pointing with a big acoustic guitar and saying "Look... this is what you're feeling. Feel it."
I'm not going to waste time saying about how far Idlewild have come since Captain, or go on forever about how yes, the album is clearly going somewhere and hasn't quite got there yet, because it's all been said. What I will say is that this is an album you should hear. It's a unique blend of rock and folk from a unique band, and I can't help being excited about where Idlewild are going with this developing sound.
