This review is from: Howling Bells (Audio CD)
This is a very confident, consistent debut. The female vocals (resembling an evil twin of The Sundays) and the great guitar work are picked out by some very slick production, creating a beguiling album, full of twists and dark corners.
I agree with the comment from Piperboy that "Velvet Girl" should be later on in the track listing, but even so, it's a very good debut. "Setting Sun", "The Night Is Young" and "Low Happening" are standout tracks and this would have been my favourite debut of the year if some lads from Sheffield hadn't gone and brought out a blinding LP.
