Embrace – The Good Will Out

15 07 2010

Listened: Thursday July 8

The Good Will Out is Embrace’s first album, which in 1998 was a little late to the Britpop party at least in America. This album was big in the UK, but I would bet few Americans know anything about them.

Embrace have a very Wall of Sound like production – there’s a lot going on underneath each song. The songs are very anthemic and singable and I think this is a stronger album than Drawn From Memory, mostly because the strings are not as heavily used as on Drawn.

I also love the cover photo – brilliant.
