No One Can Ever Know (2012), 5/10

Scotland's Twilight Sad, fronted by James Graham, concocted melodramatic and bombastic arrangements and equipped their post-pop tunes with lyrical overtones on Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters (2007), notably Cold Days from the Birdhouse and especially the less noisy And She Would Darken the Memory (that could be taken from the Bruce Springsteen canon). The extreme application of their method is how the sedated litany of That Summer at Home I Became the Invisible Boy is revitalized by a sudden burst of guitar distortions. The most interesting song is the oneiric chamber experiment of Last Year's Rain Didn't Fall Quite So Hard, but it remains an isolated case. This should have been a four-song EP.

Even worse, Forget The Night Ahead (Fat Cat, 2009) sounded like a collection of inferior leftovers from the first album, despite Reflection of the Television and I Became A Prostitute. It occasionally evokes the moronic pop of the Smiths, revealing a side that was missed on the first album under the grandiose instrumental scores.

No One Can Ever Know (2012), produced by Andrew Weatherall, brought elements of old industrial music and pushed the electronics to the forefront. Sick sounds like Nine Inch Nails lite.
