Best album yet?,
This review is from: Float (Audio CD)
Although Swagger comes close, Float has instantly become my favourite FM album. I pray the next one is this classy.
1. Requiem For A Dying Song:
This track is powerful and catchy, I first heard it several months before Swagger was released performed acoustically and loved it. Hard hitting, but some might say a little 'greenday', of course, those people need their ears checked.
2. (No More) Paddy's Lament
I'm still debating whether their label got the apostrophe right on "Paddy's" but with a song this good it's hard to care.
A slow acoustic number, stays with you long after you stop listening to it.
4. You Won't Make A Fool Out Of Me
I didn't like this one as much as some of the others, but still a hit in the Squidshaker camp.
5. Lightning Storm
Probably my favourite, the accordion is right on the money. I actually have this on my Myspace page. It replaced the Lazytown cake song, so you know it's good.
6. Punch Drunk Grinning Soul
Terrific, and the best name of an FM song since 'The worst day since yesterday'. Top notch, rather bitter tune.
7. Us Of Lesser Gods
The sweet soulful number, lots of panpipes/flute.
8. Between A Man And A Woman
I don't quite like the lyrics of this, but the instruments are amongst the best on the album. Can't complain!
9. On The Back Of A Broken Dream
By far the best Chorus on the album without contest. Sample this song if you're still unsure, you may be wooh'd over.
The other two tracks are brilliant. Pick up a copy now.
