Scottish and obviously proud of it, the Glaswegian
vocals are even stronger than those of arch Scotsmen
the Proclaimers. This is still one of the best albums
of 2008. At times angry, at times stark, Glasvegas
don't pull back from looking at topics including
violence, broken families and any other number of
subjects that lesser bands might pull away from.
"It's My Own Cheating Heart the Makes Me
Cry" is a poignant song with pounding beat and
vocals that threaten to get out of control but always
get back on track. There is a vitality and originality
to the album that the band might find difficult to
sustain over subsequent albums
