Idlewild - ‘A Modern Way Of Letting Go’ (Parlophone)
30 Dec 2003
harder-edged, growling rawker from 'the remote part'; release - '03.
Temporarily abandoning the moving tenderness of their most recent offerings in favour of something a little more pulsating, the polished Nirvana-esque stylings of 'AMWOLG' (the fourth single lifted from career-highlight album 'The Remote Part') is just as good, if very different from its predecessors.
Quite honestly, it's heartening that the 'Wild still believe there's something to be said for the turbulent two and a half minute punky single; they've not forgotten their roots, just massively improved their early form. And the results? Hugely impressive.
