ALBUM OF THE WEEK – THE JOY FORMIDABLE – THE BIG ROAR
142 DAYS TO GO
The Big Roar is pure rock and roll. the Joy Formidable are in a sense a hard rock band but they have the sensibility of an indie band and the tunes of a stunning pop band. The formidable are indeed formidable and they have produced a big Roar.
This is an Album that hits you head on with the amazing 7 minutes and 44 seconds that is the pure adrenalin rush of The Ever Changing Spectrum of, and then neatly cannonballs into The Magnifying Glass. If you need some ruckus and genuine beauty then check out Whirring. This is a sensational record, one that you will find yourself coming back to time and time again.
I expect to see the Joy Formidable raging in the John Peel Tent sometime after 8 one night, check for me down the front.
