8/10 Clinton Staff review, 01 October 2009
Clint here. We're so so busy - I'm having to do the reviews in record time so no wittering (hooray!). First up we have the new album from The Twilight Sad called 'Forget The Night Ahead'. Their first album and its accompanying EP's created quite a stir both here and across the pond we call the atlantic ocean. I for one was very impressed with their noisy Scottish pop that sounded somewhere between My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth, the Proclaimers and Joy Division. A wonderful racket but also with folky influences. Anyway the first concern about the new album is - WHAT ON EARTH HAS HAPPENED TO THE GUITARISTS HAIR? It was a wonderful mass of curls - the best hair on a male since that atop the singer from the Milltown Brothers. Now its the regulation indie post rock shaved head and beard cut. If you have great hair you should really use it. As for the music its more of the same but not as good. The single 'I Became a Prostitute' is a stirling piece of thumping melodic Scottish rock music, its follow up 'Severn Years of Letters' is Sonic Youth fronted by Kenny Dalglish. Other songs just tend to drift by on first listen but here's hoping they grow a bit. A few of the edges have been shaved off and it seems there's a little lack of inspiration at times. That said, I' gonad give this a lot more listens before I come to a definitive conclusion.
