How on earth is the BEST produced, BEST written album these lot have made got so few listeners on the main page these days?? I heard this album before YFE and I can safely say that I'm glad. YFE was ok but this one is just head and shoulders above the others. The american influence reminds me of The Joshua Tree in parts, they really excelled themselves on this one.
even though it sounds more polished than 'young for eternity' and lacks a little that pure energy, it still is a great album. my favourites definitely are 'alright' and 'I won't let you down' and 'strawberry blonde' and 'girls & boys' and 'shake! shake!'... etc.
