Overview

The Longpigs' debut album The Sun Is Often Out is an ambitious, darkly romantic album that owes quite a bit to the modernized anthem-rock of Radiohead. Although the band doesn't quite have Radiohead's talent for making the bombastic seem utterly personal, there are several moments of brilliance on the album -- particularly the singles "Far," "She Said" and "On and On" -- suggesting that their appealingly neo-gothic sonic textures will develop into something distinctive on their second album.

From "Lost Myself" to "Sleep", "Sun is Often Out" is all killer, no filler. With the brilliance of young Crispin Hunt and Richard Hawley, this album will not disappoint.

PLEASE totally ignore the review written- this is one of the best albums in the britpop/rock (I'm rubbish at categories)that there is- fullstop (period for the Americans among us.) 'MomentS of brilliance indeed!!!!' In addition to FAR, SHE SAID, and ON AND ON as mentioned are: ONE DOZEN WICKED WORDS, JESUS CHRIST, and LOST MYSELF which are also just as utterly original and brilliant pieces. You would not regret buying this album it will become one the 'good cds' in your collection.
