Review of The Twilight Sad's album Forget The Night Ahead

It seems that Scotland are looking rather wealthy when it comes to the bands that are being produced their neck of the woods with the likes of Glasvegas, Frightened Rabbit, We Were Promised Jetpacks and The Twilight Sad who have all been making waves on a global scale.

The Twilight Sad are set to release their second album 'Forget The Night Ahead' and claim that they have definitely moved on from their debut release 'Fourteen Summers and Fifteen Winters' with darker lyrics and musically the band are louder.

At a glance the track list sends a shiver down your spine, with names like 'I Became A Prostitute', 'Made To Disappear' and 'The Neighbours Can't Breathe' gives you a sense that this is going to be a dark album.

One thing that you have to hand to The Twilight Sad is that they have not gone all commercial and claimed that it was due to a change of direction in their music. The band have stayed true to their colours and stuck to their principles.

The album opens with 'Reflection Of Television' and straight away James Graham shows his authority with his shimmering vocals that on every track his accent can't help but be heard. Some people would call this unprofessional; the people who feel this music would say that it only adds to the whole experience to this band.

'I Became A Prostitute' is a indication that the amplifiers have been cranked up and the aim is to make your ears bleed with pleasure, but not to worry because 'Seven Years Of Letters' isn't as loud and is a bit of a catchy number at the same time.

The great thing is about 'Forget The Night Ahead' is that there is not a track that you could realistically criticise, even the made heavily distorted 'Scissors' has an edge to it and hearing this live would absolutely make your ears bleed and you may suffer from blurred vision from it.

Although there is nothing like 'And She Would Darken The Memory' from their debut album isn't missed, because there doesn't seem to be a weak link at all in this eleven track album.

There are not many bands that can mix heavy sounds and dark lyrics and still have that melodic sound to them, again for The Twilight Sad we can but salute you. These guys are a must see; just think if they sound loud on record, how loud will they sound live?

8/10
