‘The Creek That Drank The Cradle’ was one of the best records of 2003 and this is a ‘There There’ style comeback single.
The tribal drums and the innovation are all lined up to be messed around with and damn it its fantastic. It sounds good first time round but this is pretty amazing stuff.
It almost sounds like it was recorded underwater; you could swear you can hear the ripples moving through the ocean. It’s a long way from ‘Promising Light’ or ‘Upward of the Mountain’ and as good as those songs were, that’s no bad thing. Sam Beam’s moving somewhere different and thank God he has the balls to.
