The more I listen, the better it gets,
This review is from: The Remote Part (Audio CD)
Wonderful lyrical & tuneful rock music. Think a more ballsy REM, and then make them Scottish. With tunes like American English, Century after Century and I Never Wanted, this album could not fail.
Their recent performance at Glastonbury (2003) got me back listening to this again, and it's firmly cemented as one of my all time faves now. The last track has to be heard to be believed...although I've a feeling it was even longer & better at Glasto.
I was watching telly last year & an ad came on for this album. My girlfriend said "you'd like that" and she was right. I did. And now, about 12 months on, I like it even more. And whats more, I like 100 Broken Windows & Hope Is Important too. (I haven't dipped my toe into Captain yet).
