What a Treasure!

Now I did buy this album because a magazine said it was good (to be honest, that only gave it four stars) and at first ear-drop I did think for a moment that i was suckered into some high profile "every day" release with a twist. However, I let it get to me, it will get to you too. I'm convinced now that this is one of the greatest moments in music, shouting briefly with it's progressive instrumentals and it's light, yet harsh, harmonies that chill you to the bone. Don't let yourself miss this album. It's a straight class treat.

The Brothers Brewis Do It Again

If you ever find yourself saying "music isn't as good as it was in my day" then you simply aren't listening to the right music. Much has been made of the 1980s-style of this latest Field Music side-project; the diary of Peter Brewis's week without newspapers or television. But this is not a mere timewarp album. Clearly the Brewis brothers, and their talented troupe of collaborators, have been listening to Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, Talk Talk and a host of other acts from that decade. But The Week That WAs bears only a superficial resemblance to the music of that era. What they've borrowed is the ambition and the broad musical palette that is missing from so much of today's generic "indie". It's incredible to think that this epic album was self-produced in a home studio in Sunderland. "The Week That Was" was justly made Mojo's Album of the Month and is sure to make the top 10 of most critics' "Best of Year" lists. This is an album people will be talking about in decades to come.

Test Your Reaction

This is an amazing album, soulfilled pop melody with a genuinely sophisticated and awe inspiring edge. Having created three great albums with Field Music and School Of Language the Brewis powers once again fire out more brilliance. This is tied for my album of the year with Elbow's 'Seldom Seen Kid' and if you love the intricacy of that album then this will blow you away. Well done boys.

Years Active: '00s

As a founding member of Field Music, drummer Peter Brewis wooed indie pop fans with his band's mixture of British guitar pop and Beach Boys harmony. The trio took a hiatus in 2007, prompting the bandmates to pursue their own projects in the interim. While David Brewis formed School of Language, brother Peter took a curveball approach to his own writing, peppering his indie rock epics with strings, piano, left-hand turns, and contributions from a wide cast of musicians (including his...
