They just get better

I wrote a glowing review of the first two singles hoping the rest of the album would live up to my expectations and now that I have spent two days with the full album it certainly has. There is not a bad track on here. The Club sounds like it could fit nicely on the Strokes first album. That’s high praise and appropriate since this album was produced the very same Strokes producer.
The sound is bigger. The guitars sound fantastic and the bass is full and pushing the needle. Lyrically they are in familiar territory - writing about the difficulties of keeping relationships, songs about love and trust. What’s great about Hinds is that their songs are so unique. Though they are from Spain, all but one song is written in English. There’s something very charming about the imagery and the broken English in these songs. Sung as a duo, it is like the two girls are offering 2 opinions about the same topics, perhaps when they write they trade lyrics. The overall impression though is that Hinds are great friends and that they are united and they rely on each other. They write about heartache and about being used romantically but it all sounds so joyful and upbeat. I don’t think there is a band around that is having as much fun these girls having right now. That’s really contagious and endearing.

Linda is a favorite and perhaps the prettiest song here. New For You and Rookie are great melodic rockers. This will be a great record to play in the car this summer as we all make are way to the beach.
