Twin Shadow – Forget
Yet another album that went somewhat unnoticed when I first downloaded from iTunes. I was actually on vacation….somehow remembered I needed to listen to it, and then proceeded to purchase a physical copy while I was at Earshot, in Greenville, SC.
Okay…..it’s more 80’s synth, but not really the heavy-handed variety. And yes, it’s really good. But the level of quality is very hard to quantify how great this debut is: soaring choruses….very soulful….but still every much a “rock” album. There are lots of album review that spit hyperbole about it. Slightly overhyped, but probably one of the best albums of the year – and one of the best debuts (easily) in a long while. I think it just needs to be heard. Recommended.
