Idlewild - 'You Held The World In Your Arms'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.
