More melodic than The Remote Part, my previous favourite, and with a hint of folk rock in there too. "Love Steals Us From Loneliness" seems at first to be a bit of a let down, but as you listen to it more and more you begin to appreciate the beautiful, slightly saddening lyrics. "Welcome Home" is instantly addictive. "As If I Hadn't Slept" has great lyrics and a well-blended upbeat tune. "Not Just Sometimes But Always" is my personal favourite, just because the lyrics roll off your tongue and the subtle violin melody slips ino the music beautifully. "El Capitan" has an extremely catchy tune and makes you want to listen to it endlessly, with a happy and wistful tune.
I love every song on the album, but here I have picked out my favourites. This is a great all round album, clearly the best of Idlewild. Every song stands out for itself. If you have liked any of Idlewild's music, like soft rock/folk/indie, or indeed have a good taste in music, GET THIS ALBUM. It's AMAZING - I'm not exaggerating!
