That New Model Army should have reached studio album number ten and still only be liked by a small number of people in their native country is nothing short of scandalous, Justin Sullivan is right up there with the best when it comes to lyricists and "High" is no different. More of a band collaboration than ever before, it fair rattles along with the guitars and keyboards coupled with the crisp rhythm section, providing a comforting sound to long term fans of the band. The production dips slightly in places with the vocals sounding somewhat muffled but this is small beer when faced with a set of a dozen songs which hark back in some ways to the mid-eighties, when they were regulars in the Top 40, with "All Consuming Fire" utilising the same guitar effects as "Master Race" from "The Ghost of Cain" and others echoing the style of the classic "Thunder and Consolation". While in no way as good as the aforementioned albums "High" is just another very worthy album from a band that are underappreciated at the expense of the current shower of dross that will almost certainly not still be with us twenty plus years down the line.

Ten studio albums in, and New Model Army still remain unloved and undiscovered by the masses. To those that know their work, this has to be one of life's great mysteries. For well over twenty years, they have been producing their own unique brand of folk/punk/rock, far superior to any of their peers (The Levellers, anyone? Good God, no), and yet hardly anyone seems to know. Sure, there is a large army of dedicated followers, but this is mostly made up of fans who have been there since the 80s, when they flirted with the charts with 'No Rest', amongst others.

As said, High is their tenth studio offering, and shows that the band have lost none of their passion, aggression or fire. Opening track Wired has a more full-on rock sound than most previous work (this is no bad thing), but the album then settles in to more familiar NMA territory. One Of The Chosen could have come from any of their earlier albums, and All Consuming Fire is up there with their best. If I had to say one thing against the album, it would be that Sky In Your Eyes is perhaps more akin to Justin Sullivan's solo work on Navigating By The Stars than an all-out NMA song, but it is an excellent song nonetheless, and not really worthy of criticism.

I haven't always agreed with the band's political stance (I served in the Falklands, and vehemently disagreed with their 'Spirit Of....'), and it is perhaps this that has seen outright success and acceptance elude them, but that doesn't prevent them from being an exceptional musical force, with a catalogue that puts most other artists of their generation (and others) to shame.

Almost every track is a winner on this album. Still producing sharp observation, catchy but not "poppy" music and passionate, sincere lyrics, NMA can translate their live excitement and passion onto vinyl as well as ever. I originally rated this album as 4 stars, but if I was able to add one I would - the more you hear it the better it gets. High is up there with the very best of their work and unquestionably worth buying, and certainly well ahead of most current "indie" bands IMHO. More please....

don't know how they keep doing it, but High is awesome. best work since thunder & consolation, and almost as good. Rock tracks, anthems, melodies, (tribal drums are amazing on Breathing - best track on the album for me). Still angry, thought provoking, wonderful stuff. when is the British Music industry going to take notice of the most consistant rock group of the last 22 years. GENIUS

New Model Army are 10 albums in and still sounding incredible. Exactly how many searing soaring songs can one band create? By the sound of High, the number is infinite for Justin et al, this is an amazing album, with the best drum work on an NMA release since Thunder and Consolation- this is tribal, and primal and beautiful, where Strange Brotherhood and Eight explored a little more in the direction that Sullivan has taken in his solo work on some tracks, this has vintage NMA written through it like a stick of seaside rock. It is a mystery to me why 'The Enemy' can reach the public with lyrics and sentiments plundered directly from Early 80's NMA, yet the real McCoy, still blisteringly relevant, vibrant and on top of their game remain ignored at a time when the world needs their voice more than ever.
If you love NMA already, then this album will delight you, if you are thinking of a first outing, then why not start here? just make sure you investigate their back catalogue once you are hooked ;-)
