Best Of 2011: #14
#14 - The Pigeon Detectives - Up, Guards And At 'Em!
Original review here.
The only thing wrong with this album is the lack of change - it was a minor quibble on the band's second album, but after three years, all that's changed is a very slight shift towards electronics. But that's all that's wrong here. The tunes are fantastic - Done In Secret may be the greatest song they've ever done, Lost is built for screaming crowds, and Through The Door is another epic piece of work. The band are masters of crafting brilliant indie-pop songs, but it would be nice to see a slight hint of something new and exciting in future - but it's still a great comeback.
