Just rediscovered this and I'm listening to it at work. It's pure indie-guitar-pop-heaven. Incredible!
I'm doing the same right now (came across this thread Googling it) and yeah, it still sounds amazing. I remember thinking it sounded quite raw at the time, but that just betrays the narrow music horizons of my 16/17 year old self. It actually sounds fucking MASSIVE. It's pretty much the perfect marriage of pop melody and noisy bastard-ness. Love it.
In fact it's probably one of my top 3 favourite albums of all time.
because it's a day that ends with y
quiet crown <3
One of my favourite albums of all time.
The exact point they married the noisey sound of old with a more melodic edge, Idlewild were fantastic up until that album, they seemed to lose their way afterwards for me but "Captain" "Hope Is Important" and "100 Broken Windows" were all crackers.
The whole album is amazing.
