Idlewild – Make Another World

29 09 2010

Listened: Thursday September 9

The modern-day sound of Idlewild is like Green Day and REM had a baby. The vocals are REM-like, but the music can be very pop-punk.

I keep expecting Idlewild to fizzle out or release a less than stellar record, since they are growing up and having families now, which can derail bands with naturally youthful sound. However, they keep releasing great music like Make Another World.

There are fewer anthemic ballads on MAW than previous records The Remote Part or Warnings/Promises, but the classic Idlewild sound is still here. It makes me happy they keep exceeding my (admittedly low) expectations!
