I've been looking forward to this album for quite a while now. I think I
probably liked the single Guiding Light more than Alex who reviewed it below.
In fact, I thought the Veils sounded like one of the best indie guitar bands I had heard
for ages. The latest single The Wild Son starts this album and I liked it but felt no passion.
It's followed by Guiding Light so I'm happy again to hear that. From then on the album just
evolves into an example of lush, passionate music. It's played so intensely and they try
and pack in everything they have ever learnt into their first album.
It sounds to me as though the Veils have two sides to them - one is softer with added strings and
comes out like an updated Verve while the other cranks up the guitar. I think that
as a out and out guitar band they are magicians. Whichever way they decide to go, this is a band
to grace to British music scene with style and extreme talent.
