Initial thoughts? Sounds rather splendid to me.
and I'm in love with it.
Initially I thought it was just stand-out tracks like Bedouin Dress and Helplessness Blues that were great but after listening to it on long car journeys/walking my dogs etc. I've grown to love every song.
I agree with some people that say it's a bit 'medieval fayre' in places but I think those small contrivances get blown away by the quality of the songwriting and the sheer beauty of the harmonised vocals.
Just one long sneer, it's even worse than their recent Pains of Being Pure at Heart review.
