Haunting and captivating, British music at it's best.,
This review is from: Mercury (Audio CD)
I missed this album first time around, and after seeing the video for 'Further' on MTV2, I had the buy the album. 'Further' immediately grabs you buy the neck and demands to be listened to. It's a beautifully crafted melodic trip along the kaliedoscopic multi-layered indie-rock highway that is Long-View.
Whilst 'Further' is an excellent example of what Long-View are all about, each song on the album stands out in it's own right. From the equally haunting 'Can't Explain' to the uplifting 'One more try', this album is guaranteed to please.
A break from the current 'Alternative' market, saturated with cliched eye-liner wearing whiney teens and talentless guitar smashing Nu-Metal pop bands, Long-View play straight from the heart.
For me, this album is a masterpiece.
