The Twilight Sad: A Scottish invasion.

The Twilight Sad live up to their hyped publicity. Fourteen Autumns and Fifteen Winters is jam packed with thick, full-layered tunes. With a thick Scottish accent that is apparent on the album, James Graham voice and lyrics both provide the perfect ingredient to accompany the album's thorough instrumentation. P4K gave it an 8.6. I picked it up via eMusic. Here is one of the strongest songs on the album.

Cold Days From the Birdhouse

this reply is in the wrong spot, but i figured i'd just put it at the top...just thought i'd give my thoughts on some albums you've talked about on here that i've bought recently...

the national, alligator - amazing...really, really amazing...this album is faves are secret meeting, karen, daughters of the soho riots, and the geese of beverly road...that said, it's good top to bottom

clap your hands say yeah, some loud thunder - loved their first album but really just can't get into this's not bad by any means, but it's just not that great, imo

modest mouse, we were dead before the ship even sank - just like their other two albums i have, the first listen left me a little unimpressed...two more listens through and i loved it...faves are missed the boat, spitting venom, fire it up, parting of the sensory, little motel

arcade fire, neon bible - not an album i'd throw in at a party, but it's great...i actually think that black wave/bad vibrations might be my favorite arcade fire song yet...not many songs that really stand out, but it's very good start to finish...

anyway, tired of typing
