Idlewild - ‘You Held The World In Your Arms’ (Parlophone)
30 Dec 2003
their true, first ever chart-assault?; release - '02.
Ever-maturing, ever-endearing, ever brilliant. Picking up where the excellent 'Roseability' left off eighteen long months ago, 'YHTWIYA' is quite possibly a career best single from the 'Wild.
A widescreen, string-laden epic, with a chorus you'll be whistling for weeks, such material shall ensure 2002 to see this most productive of bands enter the rock-premier league. Indeed, including debut mini-LP 'Captain', Roddy and the boys will be releasing their fourth album in a five year period during July. Entitled 'The Remote Part', it should see them hit the big time: big style. And who can say they don't thoroughly deserve it?
