It’s the second day of April and not a fool is in sight. But the A-Z Blogging Challenge continues and so we must move on to ‘B’.
And the band behind today’s album of choice, if they live up to their name, might also be able to help me improve the content of my blog.
Which would be no bad thing.
Because today’s album is:
B is for The Back Room
Editors’ debut album was released in 2005 to general critical acclaim. Indeed, while their subsequent output has generally been pretty decent, like so many bands, they haven’t really managed to live up to the promise of their earliest efforts.
Then again, when your first offering is as good as The Back Room, then there is no shame in not being able to replicate it. If at times introspective and downbeat, there are enough rousing anthems in the mix to make me regret the fact that, to date, I’ve never managed to catch them live. Something I definitely hope to rectify post-pandemic.
There are several stand-out tracks that could play us out today, but I’ve gone with the album’s second single, Munich.
