one amazing single rest of album ok
on 7 January 2012
I'm a fan of The The and was drawn to this album by the single "I saw the light". This is a cracking cover and its tinged with The Thes trademark sound. But the rest of the album, to me, is incomparable. Yes it does sound like The The throughout but the songs, I feel, could have been made pacier and have had more blues guitar thrown in. Quite a few of the songs are fairly slow and as people have noted - have a sense of doom. Judging from the other reviews I'm in a minority here but its nowhere as good as his other albums.
