Today there seemed to be an exhilaration in My Vitriol’s Always Your Way that I never quite noticed before. Walls of sound that shimmer and ripple and whirl themselves round you rather than remain static. Amazing energy in the guitars. I’ve been meaning to listen to the album for a while – this was a timely reminder.
Maybe it’s just that I was at my wits’ end trying to write the damn moot arguments (see previous post), but it reached out and grabbed me in a way nothing else on Xfm managed to the whole day, and yes, they did play The Strokes’ Last Night, which I remain completely underwhelmed by.
