5.0 out of 5 stars Hackle Raising, 27 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Between Dog And Wolf (Audio CD)
Seldom do I come across an album that affects me as much as this one does. Justin has always had a habit of writing songs that either speak to where I am or will be but though none of the songs here are as visceral as Red Earth, Today is a Good Day, Vengeance or 51st State every single one raised my hackles on first listen and a week later they are still doing so. This is an album for listening to loud while driving, preferably alone so people don't complain as you sing along.
Stand outs at the moment for me are Horseman, Stormclouds and Between Dog and Wolf though there isn't a lot to choose between them and in a different mood I may pick others. I look forward to hearing the Army's army chanting accompaniment when they tour.
It is definitely a change from their recent stuff and I get why some critics have compared this to Pink Floyd. The album has that brooding air of The Wall. The defining track is probably Tomorrow Came whose lyrics say it all. Good to see that the Annus Horribilis hasn't had a negative effect on Justin and co. Long may the Army stay in the field.

Edit. Can't believe I forgot to say that the primary impulse for buying this album was the cover. I pre-ordered off the bands site and got the bookbound CD. The Artwork of Joolz is stunning and an absolute perfect fit with the feel of the music. Got the T-shirt as well.

I get very influenced by cover art too.It's an extension of the whole idea of the album at best,at worst nice to look at when your music player breaks! NMA have some great ones over the years,great continuity of imagery.
