5.0 out of 5 stars
the best yet??, 15 May 2013
the boxer rebellion return with their fourth album, following exits, union and the cold still. i would say this is their most complete one yet. there isn't a bad track here, from the single "diamonds" through to the final song "promises"
the boxer sound has mellowed and progressed since 2003 and i think it sounds better for it.
nathan's voice sounds fantastic, especially when hitting the high notes. other tracks "fragile", "always", "low" and "new york" bring out the best of the band.
they completely deserve "promises" to be a major breakthrough success for them. it's on repeat play at the moment for me!
