They Didn't Let Me Down

No, they didn't! They weren't like the Editors were last year (er, sort of) and I'm well and truly delighted with Midnight Boom! The Kills have not disappointed me. I wasn't sure whether or not I would find any song better than Cheap and Cheerful but there are lots of gems on the entire album. Personal favourites of mine are Tape Song (brilliant build up into punk explosion), Last Day of Magic (oddly melancholic, in its fiery way) and What New York Used to Be (like an atom bomb being dropped to unleash a mushroom cloud of rock over the city).

Ooh, a very early contender for album of the year, methinks....
