Absolutely stunning - better than The Glass Handed Kites and very likely my album of the year.
OMG you better not be filling me with false hope. Saw them live twice a couple of weeks back but the new songs didn't grab me in the way the last ones did. Love Palace Players, however. Can't wait to find out for myself....
it doesn't quite have the immediate standouts of Special, Apocalypso and The Zookeeper's Boy but it's much more coherent and consistent.
Every single song sounds really full and some of the melodies are killer. I loved it from the start but I think it'll grow on me - it's one of those albums that after 6 months of listening you could hear something you'd not noticed before.
palace players is truly immense. Dont think it'll get the same attention as the last few albums did though.
I'm hoping it might get more than the last two did, it's coming out just before the autumn album rush starts too.
