ALBUM OF THE WEEK – MAGIC NUMBERS – RUNAWAY
Album of the Week is the new one from the Magic Numbers Runaway. For some reason the release date was put back 2 months which was a pity as it meant that when they played Glasto, no one had heard the new songs. The Album is a departure from the first 2 in that their jangly pop melodies are replaced by a more psychedelic sound. It certainly takes a few listens to get used to, but after that starts to seep into your sub conscience. I think like the second it will take a while to hit home. I love the Magic Numbers but I am not sure this is their best album. Maybe it can be put down to difficult third album experience. Be here now anyone?
