- Aug 30, 2006I agree totally with what Ally has said. The album is a real
grower...apart from tracks like I Choose Noise and Until Tomorrow
which are just stunning...a real aural assault from the first spin.
The latter, in my opinion (which may or may not count for much
depending who you are - lol) is my favourite album track. I think it's one of the most musically mature and emotional tracks the boys have turned out. For me it easily matches, if not surpasses some of Brian Transeau's stuff...and I'm a big BT fan. I think I've worn the track out already :)
Yes, I'm certainly choosing noise at the moment.
