..and probably Florence & The Machine's 'Ceremonies' too if I'm honest.
It's been on my headphones repeatedly for more than week now (and for someone like me who listens to new albums almost every few days, that's something special in itself).
In one way, I'm hoping that I'm not saying anything here which is really that controversial. Everything about this album is everything a great big pop-rock album should be: soaring guitars, BIG vocals, atmospheric keyboards and drama, drama, drama.
In a way this album takes me back to the sort of pop music that saturated my youth. Indeed, back in the late eighties this sort of stuff was ten a penny and predictably dull after a while, but the absence of it for so many years has actually made it stand out for me.
It's way too long perhaps, though I've been growing into it slowly to the extent that I now love every track.
Don't get me wrong, I don't really have anything against Lana and Florence - I like albums in their own way (there are those who don't obviously) but I haven't had this much fun just thrashing my head around with my eyes closed listening to an album for ages.
Pantomime gothic-pomp right the way though and why not? Love it. :0)
