Pop & Rock: Year in Review 2010
The Walkmen's sixth album finds the band sinking deeper into '50s rock'n'roll, growing wiser and more meditative with age. Lisbon is brighter and louder than its subdued predecessor You & Me, balancing rockers like "Blue As Your Blood" with the slow, whiskey-soaked ruminations of the waltzing "Torch Song" and "All My Great Designs." The gentle horns of "Stranded" find reassurance in alienation, while highlight "Angela Surf City" retells a failed romance over stampeding surf rock. Find a sunset and sit down with Lisbon again, you'll find something new to savour each time.
