4.0 out of 5 stars letter to America., 9 April 2011
This review is from: EUPHORIC /// HEARTBREAK \\\ (Audio CD)
I was apprehensive in my approach to the second offering from Glasvegas after their excellent debut. "Glasvegas" was at risk of suffering from over- hype just days after being aired on Jools Holland and largely because of a similar reason that the Proclaimers were after writing that letter to America. Furthermore you were often left wondering what the deal was with songs about "gonna get stabbed" (sic), etc.. heerawee, heerawee, heerawee... .
Then when the title Euphoric- forward slash-Heatbreak-backward slash was released along side not only one of the most embarrassing album covers to be released in modern history, but also a rather ominous set of song titles: I Feel Wrong (Homosexuality Part 1.), Stronger Than Dirt (Homosexuality Part 2.), coupled rather inappropriately with Whatever Hurts You Through the Night and Pain Pain, Never Again. Tut Tut, what twas he thinking.... .
Anyway, Euphoric- forward slash-Heatbreak-backward slash has actually come as a rather pleasant surprise. Yeah sure, we all know that the man behind the mike is in pain, and we know that a large number of his fans buy their black trousers from the children's department in Primark, but there are some really great tunes to be had, not least The World is Yours and Dream Dream Dreaming. No effing and blinding, not getting stabbed, but do need to mention: sadly a guest appearance from "Ma" on Change, (not great stuff to keep that Flame of Injustice alight.)
Bless Glasvegas, they have given us their best effort and we love them for it and promise to stand by them till de end. (Just off to get my tattoo done... .)
