Their Best Yet,
By A Customer
This review is from: Analogue (Audio CD)
This is quite different from their original sound, with a lot more guitars but combined amazingly well with piano and electronic instrumentation to great effect. Lyrically, this is a very strong album with some great lines, delivered extremely well. Some of the words are very poignant, with a melancholic feel (a recurring theme is of life going by and wasting your chances). The songs are great, a lot of potential singles 'birthright', 'cosy prisons', the very coldplay-esque (there are hints of coldplay elsewhere -payback?) 'summers of our youth'. 'Celice' (this might have something to do with the Da Vinci code?) and 'Don't do me any favours' are great snappy tunes as is 'Analogue'. 'Keeper of the flame' does not sound like a single but is a real grower in a Beatley kind of way. There is a very warm sound overall. So ticks in every department, this is their best album ever (check out'hunting high and low' and 'minor earth major sky', avoid 'lifelines'). I'll avoid saying it is a classic as it takes a lot of listening to say that, but it's impressive. The only thing that I am puzzled is that this cd comes with a 'parental guidance:explicit content' sticker, not sure why!

Puzzle no more, for I know why Analogue comes with a parental guidance sticker. Its because at the start of track 8 (Half Way Through The Tour), The guys all shout the four letter F word!
