Is indeed a fantastic album. Moscow Underground is the best song the band have done in years. Is is the album U2 drafted Eno in and wanted to make in my opinion.

Yes, maybe, but will anything be as good as "Love Song", "The American" "Seeing Out The Angel" "Wonderful in Young Life" etc. etc.???

I love Charlie's guitar playing, esp. when he plays slide.

Good news for fans, you have to listen to this album, it is superb!!

SIMPLE MINDS, one of the greatest live rock bands of all time [x infinity squared?] release their highly anticipated 15th studio album of brand new material GRAFFITI SOUL on 25 May 2009.

THE NEW SINGLE - ´ROCKETS´
Flagship single ´Rockets´, released 18 May, is a shining example of the distinctive sound of Simple Minds - unforgettable guitar riffs, soaring vocal harmonies and "hooky handclaps".

Heard the new album in it's entirety last night and i think it is far better than NLOTH, it simply doesn't have a weak track on it. Ambient and atmospheric, just what U2 wanted with their album.

Love them! It sounds like classic Simple Minds to me. I've got the album sampler but I have no idea which songs are which. What song is at 1.00 minute onwards? Light Travels? I have to get this song!

Hi Slipstream, you wait untill you hear the new album mate, from start to finish it is unbelievable i promise you, Blood Type 'O' should have been on War Of The Worls album. Charlie Burchill is the new Brian Eno believe me.
