Published Sep 22, 2009Believe it or not, it's almost too good a week for music. There are exceptional albums aplenty in Exclaim!'s Recently Reviewed section, so let's not waste any time here.
Emotive Scottish rockers the Twilight Sad are back with their confident sophomore album Forget the Night Ahead, while Why? have returned a little more tender with their latest album Eskimo Snow.
To heavier fare, both Every Time I Die and the Black Dahlia Murder have continued in their respective veins of rich musical form. The former's New Junk Aesthetic is a return to the gritty, heavy sound that first made their name, while the latter's Deflorate proves that the Black Dahlia Murder have truly perfected their sound.
A relatively matured Moneen have released a watershed album in The World I Want to Leave Behind, while woodsy types the Warped 45s have created the energy-infused record 10 Day Poem for Saskatchewan from stories told with equal lyrical and musical sincerity.
Also out this week are A Sunny Day in Glasgow's eclectic sophomore album Ashes Grammar and Vic Chesnutt's excellent At the Cut, as well as Times New Viking's Born Again Revisited, Spiral Beach's The Only Real Thing, the Hidden Cameras' Origin:Orphan and Polvo's return to recording, In Prism.
Exhale, reader. You have a whole week to ingest these fine albums before checking back next Tuesday for a brand new set of Recently Reviewed albums.
