5.0 out of 5 stars Best Album Of 2012, 13 Sep 2012
This review is from: Toy (Audio CD)
Oh it seems so simple.take all the best british indie music ever made.mix in a little krautrock.loads of swagger.make it all seem effortless and look cool while doing it.release a debut album that backs up any hype,that not only is the best album of 2012 but also one of the best debut albums ever.
Like all great albums the opening track 'COLOUR'S RUNNING OUT' instantly sets the mood with its shimmering guitars and hypnotic efforts.very psychedelic.
(Now in these days of homemade cd's i've personally added toy's fantastic,epic debut single LEFT MYSELF BEHIND as track 2.it fits just perfect.its staggering how confident the band are to leave this song off the lp.)
THE REASONS WHY is a poppy my bloody valentineish little beauty
DEAD AND GONE is possibly the best song on the lp.an epic track that speeds hypnotically along til it drops into a dreamy hush before redoubling its efforts to blaze a lysergic full tilt trip home.
LOSE MY WAY was the third single and is more poppish bliss.
DRIFTING DEEPER is a synth drenched driving instrumental.very droney and full of spacey effects.
MOTORING was the second single.awesome vocals over a krautrock groove and ringing guitars.
MY HEART SKIPS A BEAT is the most bittersweet romantic song on the lp.and an obvious sounding single.
STRANGE is the lps most horrors like song(the band are often liken to the horrors).
MAKE IT MINE more dreamy pop.
OMNI is a short soundscape.
WALK UP TO ME is a slow brooding ballad
KOPTER is another long hypnotic epic and a perfect closer.
Also a band whose single b sides are worth hunting down.especially BRIGHT WHITE SHIMMERING SUN which was the flip of the LOSE MY WAY single.
Epic,Fuzzy,Droney,Spacey Pyschedelic Brilliance.....YOU NEED THIS ALBUM.
