I Like Trains, The Shallows Album Review


If any current band were to put together a concept record based on historical intellect while referencing great thinkers such as Freud and Nietzsche, it would be I Like Trains. Having spent their entire career to date confounding fans and critics alike - whether it be documenting The Beeching Report which redefined British railway transportation, Captain Scott's doomed return from the South Pole or reclusive chess player Bobby Fischer - they've conspired to produce some of the most invigorating lyrical asides set to music this past decade. 'A decade?!' I hear you exclaim, 'Really?' Really. Give or take a few months. And what a difference that time has made from a musical perspective at any rate.
