dark dark dark and brilliant,
This review is from: War Stories [Limited Edition] (Audio CD)
an utterly compelling lp - deep and dark and aggressive and demanding...the closest comparisons i can think of would be Massive Attack's Mezzanine lp and Spirit of Eden by Talk Talk
an inspired choice of guest vocalists (the Gavin Clark of Clayhill & Ian Astbury tracks are fabulous) just show how on top of his game Lavelle is.
sometimes an lp grabs me so much intitally that after a week or so, i'm almost bored of it, but trust me, there's no way you could be bored by this...it's got the lot.
without a doubt, one of the top three lps of the year.

God, you're right. As dark as Mezzanine, which is probably one of my favourite albums of all time. I just found "War Stories" compelling to the end (unlike most albums) and really quite emotional.
