Returning to the sound that made their first album so memorable, this is an excellent exercise in taking the melodic best from the past (Postcard Records?), infusing it with modern day angst and prickly lyrics and fusing it into a tuneful yet hard edged whole. James Allan's strong Scottish singing accent may put some off but at least he has stayed true to his roots and not adopted a faux American voice. The band are in fine rocking fettle and there are some genuinely great songs on here. This album propels Glasvegas firmly into the forefront of todays "indie" bands.
