Top 50 of 2012: No.34: Phantom Limb - The Pines (Naim)
It says something about the music industry and music fans in general when a band as good as Phantom Limb are not absolutely huge by now, and sure there's plenty of bands playing a blend of country and soul these days but as stated before it's how you play it. On second album 'The Pines' the band have really upped their game, supermassive melodies that swirl round unbelievably crafted musicianship, this is the closest a band can come to sounding like they've literally walked in from the 70's as you'll get. There's so many songs that could and should be huge singles like title track 'The Pines', 'Harder Than Stone' and the beautiful 'Gravy Train' and now it's getting to summer again, this is perfect album for chilling in the garden with friends and a few beers. I know some people might read these reviews and think he likes pretty much anything, all i can say is if you check out any band that you read about on this blog, make it Phantom Limb.
