And so to New Model Army's eleventh studio offering, and it does not dissapoint.
It's quite incredible that Justin and co still manage to produce valuable and exciting music after over a quarter of a century in the 'business'.
'Today' starts with what is possibly the heaviest song the Army have released since 'Here Comes The War', 'Today Is a Good Day' thunders out with rocking guitars and fierce vocals; whilst not being the strongest song on the album its a fine opener.
The production is great, less claustrophobic and dark than the excellent 'Carnival' and far meatier than the mighty 'High', it certainly reminds me of the atmosphere that 'Love of Hopeless Causes' created.
Stand out tracks (and certainly fan favourites) are the awesome 'Autumn', 'La Push' and the thunderingly good 'States Radio', all classic Army tunes and some of the best they have written for a long time.
There are though, in my opinion, 2 tracks though that bring the album down from classic status to being extremely good; 'Mambo Queen' is a fairly good but slightly dull rock song but doesn't really get the blood going, one for another 'B-Sides...' album methinks. The dodgy song here though is 'Bad Harvest', it sounds a bit of a confused mess and not finished, an odd track to include on what is otherwise a blinding album. Some may have noticed the inclusion of the Army's version of Justin Sullivans song 'Ocean Rising', its a great track but not that different form the 'Navigating By The Stars' original and I do feel slightly cheated that we didnt get an original track (but hey, tis a small gripe).
All in all though a cracker and one that Army fans will embrace and love.
Im off to see Justin and Dean play at the Garage tonight, hope they do a few acoustic versions from the 'Today'...

...when i receive a new NMA album! As an old-timer fan there was no way I wasn't going to buy this album, despite any negative criticism I may have heard and I'm sure I'm not alone with feeling like this. I'm a loyal supporter of Justin Sullivan and co and as such have given the album 3 listens before I can review it - honestly. Sound wise Today Is A Good Day follows on where High and Carnival the last 2 albums left off. I'm hooked from the very first riveting bass-strums of the opening and also title track and overall this is another wonderful sounding and lyrically moving piece of work. Favorites so far - Autumn (just beautiful), God save me "God save me from everything I really want, God save me from everything I really feel, God save me from everything I should have said" words stolen from my very own heart to of course Ocean Rising and ... Mambo Queen as I always love it when JS sings a good love song. For those people and I'm sure there are many who don't own a New Model Army CD - give this one a bash - you never know you may become as hooked as me and join the family.

Unconcerned with the pretty boy image and synthetic sound of the early 80's and more mature than the punk bands they preceded this band were at odds with the record co-operative giants, but this only helped seal their sense of solidarity and determination.

There look and attitude is not unlike that of Kirk Coban's Nivarna, abiet some years earlier. Throughout their 30 year journey they have never compromised themselves and stayed true to their ethical views and beliefs (A rare and refreshing accomplishment). These guys were green before green become fashionable.

Both in sound and vision there is a rare sincerity, truth and honesty about this band which is delivered with heart felt edgy passion. Their apocalyptic imagery and cynical view is both radical and thought provoking. Their nightmarish sounds and visions of the future are described with such clarity and pinpoint accuracy that it puts Nostradamus to shame. Athough the primevil and hellish landscape from which there were born and influenced there early recordings has mellowed over the years

It's a tragedy and crime that the general public are unaware of this bands existence. You will never hear this band on the radio; rarely see them on you T.V, they receive little or no press coverage and are overlooked by the pompous festival circuit. Yet they can sell out venues all over the UK and Europe and still mange the occasional top 40 hit (if they so chose) with little or no promotion . Specific lyrical references, coupled with visa problems, unfortunately ensure that they are all but ignored in the U.S.

The music of NMA is a way of life and this comes across in the beauty and compassionate yet aggressive melodies in their compositions.

I have never been a die hard fan of NMA but have two of their early albums and saw them live a couple of times in the mid eighties, anyway I bought this as I was intending to go and see them live. I have to say I thought the album was very good, sure there are a couple of tracks I wasn't overly keen on but isn't there on every album from any band. A couple of days ago I went to see them play live and they were fantastic, full of energy even after almost 30 years and they played several tracks from the album impeccably and a few of their classic oldies were thrown in also.
Back to the album... there is a real mixture here starting with the heavier title track through to acoustic numbers. If you have liked NMA at all in the past or are a fan of independent music (proper music rather than the garbage thrown at us by the media) then I am sure there will be something for you here. This band have been underrated over the years and deserve more acclaim, they have always had, and still have a unique sound. I'm glad I bought the album and followed it up with the gig - worth every penny!
