Review of reviews: No One Can Ever Know

What we said and what they said about the new Twilight Sad album

What we said:
This second album from The Twilight Sad is a surprising and substantial progression. It’s what you might call, we suspect, a definite grower – and perhaps a worthy Mercury contender nearer the time?’

What they said:
‘Whereas Editors seem to ape the tortured soul of Joy Division; here it’s the real deal. These [songs] are more than ostentatious angst; they’re doors onto shadowy, eerie scenes.’

‘Unfortunately, whilst the musicianship may be of the highest order, at times the song-writing is verging on stale, failing to truly convince the listener of its own merits.’

‘It is clear that this is not some exercise in haphazard experimentalism with some strange new sounds but a focused, considered and coherent collection. There is not an inch of fat present on a record that is brimming with taut, white-hot electronic rock.’

The Twilight Sad, We Were Promised Jetpacks and Holy Mountain

Kilsyth trio taking their former wall-of-sound noise rock in a new, darker synth-laden direction on their current album No One Can Ever Know. With alternarock support from WWPJ and mighty riffola from Holy Mountain.
