Hypersonic Missiles by Sam Fender

I’ve not really been aware of Sam Fender up to this point, but his debut album packs a real punch. I loved it! It’s got a rock sound that is reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen and The Killers and others, but also has its own sound that works well. I feel like I’m going to need to listen several more times to move past just enjoying the sound of it to listening to the lyrics as well, as the effort that’s gone into them sounds like it’ll be worth it.

I was worried about this one, because what I know of Bob Dylan is the gravelly voice and a slight tendency to overuse the harmonica. These are two things that meant I wasn’t sure I’d get to the end of the album but actually, it wasn’t as bad as I thought. I don’t think it’s really my kind of music and I wouldn’t seek it out, but it has its own merits and I can understand why people are big fans.

Another artist I judged too quickly, but realised I did like Hold Back the River. Turns out the whole album is fantastic, it’s all in the vein of the river one, and thus I loved every song on it.
