The Delgados


Released 14 October 2002

From a musical perspective, it's hard not to haul out another cliche; each of the songs here is processed, tweaked, and orchestrated into a positively massive (even majestic) sonic epic. It's one of those rare records that actually deserves all of the attention it demands. In reviewing this album, Spin Magazine wrote: "Rougher than Belle and Sebastian and lovelier than Mogwai, the Delgados craft orchestral maneuvers in the dark that leave bruises." (2003-February, p. 98)
