This album is an old favourite, I suspect I had a physical copy as I knew all the songs throughout and had a lot of the lyrics in my head. It’s an interesting one because it’s a downbeat record, lazy and drifting, reminding me quite a lot of Coldplay’s debut album - not in the songs themselves but in the mood.

And Coldplay’s initial album has left me with some difficult emotions to process, where as this one, I could listen to over and over. Driftwood is a real classic, but all of the tracks stand up to repeated listens.

Rating: 5 / 5
