Editorial Reviews

The Twilight Sad's much-anticipated follow-up to 2007's Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters is a dark and tumultuous listen. Produced by guitarist Andy McFarlane with Paul Savage (of Delgados) at Glasgow's famed Chem 19 studios, Forget The Night Ahead retains the guitar-washed drama of their previous effort, with an added complexity both sonic and thematic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing forgettable about this October 28, 2009
Format:Audio CD
It's been over two years since The Twilight Sad gut punching debut "Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters". In "Forget the Night Ahead", the band gets even darker, more cryptic, noisier and somewhat more melodic. In general, the style is not that far off their debut, the thing that has most significantly changed here is the mood. Some people have said they missed the accordion here. I don't think it's about the instrument per se, but the fact that this record has a different purpose. The sooner you understand that, it'll be a more rewarding experience to you as the listener. At first, I kept comparing it to FA&FW and I felt lost within it.

The lyrical themes are closer to missed opportunities, secrets and guilt. Not exactly the kind of stuff that would bring melancholy to your heart. Instead there's a lot of distortion and noise, but it's also clear they were looking to bring more variety to the mix. This can be best represented by the somewhat polar opposites of the album.

Opening track "Reflection of the Television" is full of tremolo guitars, pounding bass and drums all serving as a backdrop to surprisingly calm vocals. It perfectly captures the anxiety that surrounds a line as frightening as it its ambiguous, "There's people downstairs". It's clear they were looking to escape the somewhat expected explosion in the songs, so instead it slowly builds up tension until the last 30 seconds when it all becomes very sinister and the last "There's people downstairs" sounds like it was delivered from a deathbed.

A song like "The Neighbours Can't Breathe" is as tumultuous as it is exciting. With some very dark imagery that make the shifts in tempo feel a bit disturbing to be honest.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Twilight Sad - Forget the Night Ahead October 2, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The Twilight Sad are pissed, and they want you to know it. It's obvious that James Graham has been listening to his early Cure records lately, and it shows heavily throughout this album of dark, brooding, swirling tales of despair. Yes, this album is an epic downer, but it's also smart and musically rich, and will be loved by any fan of the band's work so far. It may be a little too bold to appeal to a wider audience, but it's obvious the band didn't put this album together with the hopes of drawing in legions of new fans: this is a record for the fans, and it's a great record.

Standouts for me are the brutal, hazy opener "Reflection of the Television" and it's more aggressive sister-song, "I Became a Prostitute." As you can no doubt tell by the titles, these songs are no joke, and the lyrics cover general themes of personal disgust, depression, and social anxiety. "The Room" is the closest the band gets to a ballad on this record, but it's far too disturbed and heavy to be a proper love song, but it's a strong, immediate track. As I said before, this is an album for the fans, and it's a great swirling mass of adult angst.

This album feels like a slow moving hurricane made up primarily of pain, grief, and fury; a lumbering, shrieking act of nature held right over your head; that heaviness on your chest that comes right after your love leaves you for good.

5.0 out of 5 stars epic, bulding swells of melody & rage November 12, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The 3rd release from this Glasgow, Scotland band is moody, muscular & melodic. Led by the
heady Scottish brogue of singer James Graham, these are gorgeous, epic, soaring songs
with a raw, beautiful & subtle sense of tension that swells from the basement of emotion, and
explodes into a raging barrage of skyward brilliance. Sometimes they do seem like a "one trick
pony", but oh-my-God what a trick!! Similarities to Airborne Toxic Event, My Bloody Valentine,
Glasvegas, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Xcerts.
