Customer Review

on 1 April 2006
This New Day is probably not their best album, (I'd reserve that accolade for the Good Will Out or Out Of Nothing), but it's by far and away their most mature album to date.
Their lyrical abilities seemed to have improved a lot on this album (which I first noticed on Out Of Nothing), but that is not to say their earlier work was lyrically poor either. They just sound more grown up now. The same can be said of the production, which seems to be spot on. The whole record sounds very polished and slick. The group seem to be moving into a more experimental, more exciting phase of their career that first began with Out Of Nothing, which I think heralded a new direction for their music. It's easy to tell by listening to the album that this band are beginning to reap the rewards of years of playing together as a tight unit.
Another less obvious aspect of this album that I love, is the art and photography direction. Both Richard Bull and Rick Guest need to be commended for the amazing tone/style of the photography that they have created for the album. The use of flairs in the dark is stunning.
So, in essence, I would highly recommend this album, but in my opinion it's not the band's best body of work, but comes very close to the heights they scaled with their debut record.
