Three years and 300 gigs on from the 100,000 selling debut ‘Free’, Scotland’s finest, Twin Atlantic, are back and on a mission for global domination with their new album ‘Great Divide’, released on Red Bull Records.
Produced by Jacknife Lee (U2,REM), and longtime collaborator Gil Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters), ‘Great Divide’ bristles with energy from start to finish. Highlights include the heartfelt opener, ‘The Ones That I Love’; bewitching second single ‘Brothers And Sisters’; the pulsating first single, and top 20 UK Chart hit, ‘Heart and Soul’ and the haunting ‘Oceans’.
The album is released as a standard 12-track edition, plus a special edition book pack with 16 tracks and a film documenting the making of the album.

I forecast big changes on the next one.
My biggest criticism with this is that it's all just a bit too radio pleasing. Some of the lyrics are a bit dodgy also. The extra tracks are really good. Not sure why they are just added tracks, should have been a part of the album. If you like this album, you will love Vivarium. 'Caribbean War Syndrome' is an amazing song. Better than anything on this album. Check it out now.
In summary, Great Divide is fine, it should propel them, they deserve it. I said to Sam about 5 years ago in my home town of Hull that it took Biffy many albums to get their, Twin Atlantic no doubt will do it the same way. One recommendation please for the next one, make it a bit more rough around the edges, crank up the guitars and leave out the pop.
Good luck though boys, I will be seeing you on tour.
Before the record unfolds its full potential, it starts quietly with a cheesy piano driven intro track (The Ones I Love). Twin Atlantic always had a knack for writing ballads (Better Weather, Crash Land, Yes, I Was Drunk) but this song suffers from the same lyrical weaknesses and lack of musical imagination that constitute the remainder of the album.
It’s not like Twin Atlantic were poets before but I usually found their lyrics easy to relate to and memorable but on this record lyrics are no more than accessory. The ballads are full of teenage truisms such as “Hold on, you can be strong” (Hold On), “There’s nothing wrong with being a dreamer” (Brothers and Sisters) or “Music is my therapy” (The Ones That I Love) while the upbeat tracks are full of nonsense phrases like “I flick the switch on the generator, so I can turn you on” (Heart And Soul), or “Yeah, yeah yeah, I’m the only one, I’m a loaded gun” (Fall Into The Party) or “Don’t let me down from so far away, cos’ I’m your cell mate” (Cell Mate).Read more ›
I get that some people think this latest album from Twin Atlantic has gone a bit too 'pop-rock', but just put that to one side if you're listening to it for the first time. I think categorising it as such will unnecessarily put some people off. Pop or rock - whatever you want to call it, it's just a fantastic album. There are some really brilliant tracks and fantastic riffs, as well as some more contemplative songs that really balance it out.
It might not be for everyone, but I can't recommend it highly enough.
