Turin Brakes – The Optimist

30 11 2010

Listened: Monday November 8

The Optimist is Turin Brakes’ first LP and I don’t really know why I didn’t fall in love with it back when I originally picked up this album. At the time I was really paying attention to whatever Astralwerks released, since they were knocking them out of the park.

Listening now, this album is no exception. I guess it just didn’t click. Plus they weren’t really “personalities”  – as much as I’d like to deny it, that really helps to grab and hold attention, even if you think that kind of thing doesn’t affect you. This is another “first discovery” of something I’ve owned for years that I’ll need to make sure I listen to more.
