Europe is more mature than Allo Darlin''s debut. (It felt wrong to use just one apostrophe there.) In particular, the lyrics sound much more heartfelt. Whereas the debut had its beautiful, emotional moments, Europe is drenched in them--almost painfully so. Never before has so much wistfulness, homesickness, longing and vulnerability been crammed into one recording. It's a big, gorgeously crafted love letter.
If you like Belle & Sebastian, Hefner, Camera Obscura, The Smiths and Jens Lekman, this album's a surefire bet. It sits right in the middle of the B&S/H/CO/TS/JL pentagram, like a little pining sacrifical lamb.
And--of course--if you dislike those bands, you'll almost certainly dislike this.
Take a listen to Tallulah and you should know whether this might be for you. It's just Elizabeth and her uke, and some of the most amazing, heartfelt lyrics you can imagine. To paraphrase John Peel, I can't plan to talk afterwards, because I get all dewy-eyed every time I hear it. Remember when music used to seem like a bit of magic? That's what this album means to me.

Well worth a listen
First heard the track "Tallulah" and was pleasantly surprised by the overall quality of the work. Layered melodies with deep lyrics though not too deep. :-)Published on January 3, 2013 by George Vaughan
