The more beady-eyed among you will notice that both today's and yesterday's albums are from 2007, the very end of our five-year spell. Partly because they are two of the best albums produced in this period and on this theme, and partly because the bands which were active in this period seemed to shine brilliantly and then burn out in this latter period. Expect something a bit different tomorrow & Friday. Anyways, I recently realised how much I love this album - it is just about perfect. It's an album that deals with love and heartbreak, without being whiny and annoying; it also deals with the utter despair at one's hometown, and the resignation that you can probably never escape it. But despite all that (seeming) negativity, this album is uplifting and simply just an utter joy to listen to. Enjoy.
