What a fantastic album! Following in the footsteps of the brilliant 1972, I'd expected to be disappointed by a less inspired follow-up. How wrong can you be! Nashville takes everything from 1972 and cranks up the quality an extra notch or two. While the previous album contained 10 uplifting and well-crafted pop songs, Nashville repeats the trick, but contains more heart-felt, moving songwriting. It achieves the perfect mix of sing-along, harmony-filled tracks such as Carolina, Winter in the Hamptons and It's the Nighttime, with utterly beautiful, uplifting, building anthems such as stand-out tracks Sad Eyes, Middle School Frown and My Love has Gone, songs with the ability to break your heart and put it back together in the space of five glorious minutes. Highlights aside, there really isn't a bad track on the album. If you fancy cheering yourself up and ushering in an early summer, Nashville is the album to take you there.
