Intelligent rock music with heart.,
By A Customer
This review is from: 100 Broken Windows (Audio CD)
This album is a refreshing change from all the Nu metal stuff around at the moment, if you claim to be a rock fan then you will love this album, no question. Automatically catchy songs such as 'Actually its darkness' and 'These wooden ideas' and then songs with really intelligent lyrics that make you think such as 'roseability' which ponders the theories of Gertrude Stien. My favorite track has to be 'I don't have the map' completly brilliant from start to finish with an excellent guitar hook. The last track is the only slow song,called 'The bronze medal', Tear jerking stuff about failing featuring the line 'nothing but determination, to come in third'. Idlewild are in a league of their own, i cannot think of a band to compare them to, this is great orignal stuff, check it out, all anyone needs is a little discourage.
