5.0 out of 5 stars From Strength To Strength, 21 May 2012
This review is from: Tree Bursts In Snow (Audio CD)
Admiral Fallow's last album 'Boots Met My Face', released originally in 2010, was
a gem. In Louis Abbott this fine Glaswegian five-piece have a splendid leader
and songwriter and their new album 'Tree Bursts In Snow' finds the band in
increasingly confident form. The wistful melodies and observations of their
earlier work remain intact but what is new here is a greater sense of power
and purpose. It's stirring stuff every-which-way. There are ten songs in the
set and not a weak one among them. When they see fit the ensemble can really
rock out (witness the uproarious 'Guest Of The Government') but when the mood
takes them there are the tenderest moments too (the beautiful 'Old Fools' is
sung with true feeling and conviction by Mr Abbott). There's light and shade in
the foursquare arrangement of 'Beetle In The Box' (sporting commendable vocal
support from Sarah Hayes); delicious harmonies and energetic drumming from Philip
Hauge in 'Brother' and poignant melancholy on final track 'Oh, Oscar'. It is to
the magnificent composition 'Burn', however, to which we must turn to experience
the full force and elegant complexity of the band's sense of drama and palpable
emotion. It is a song to rank with the very best we have heard so-far this year.

An album to treasure. Don't let it pass you by on the other side of the road.

Highly Recommended.
