About this item

Midlake's second album propels them from their American indie roots into a whole new world of radio-friendly sounds, unashamedly reverential to the AOR foundations laid in the late 70s by Fleetwood Mac. Regrouping for their sophomore effort, the Texan band and set about changing their direction from the bottom-up, probably listening en masse to The Eagles and CSN&Y before coming up with the homogeneous set of songs about yearning, marriage and made-up history. If the opening track "Roscoe" doesn't convince you, then we'd advise you to check your pulse, but they won't remain under-the-radar for long.
