Charlatans "Up at the Lake"

Has anyone heard this new Charlatans album?? I'm currently trying to...acquire the songs. I love charlatans and everything timmy, so I'm quite excited. It's released this week in the UK, although I'm not sure when in the US.

Just heard it. Fantastic pop tune! I've been into this band since 1990, and they keep growing and getting better with each record. This new one sounds very promising.

the song "feel the pressure" = rockier, very upbeat in the vein of wonderland, but no falsetto. I love it. Not that I didn't love the falsetto, but...

Got the whole album. I love "I'll Sing A Hymn (You Came To Me)." And "Try Again Today" is brilliant. They keep getting better! Back in 1990 I never would have guessed they would become one of the most consistently great bands on the plant.

I have to come back to this thread. This is the BEST album of the year. The AM and Classic Rock influences really come through on 3rd and 4th listens. Combine that w/ their usual psychedelia and groove, and you have the best album of the year. "Loving You Is Easy" is vintage McCartney songwriting, and the chorus of " High Up Your Tree" screams out Beach Boys.

Oh, and they've been listening to The Kinks as well, check out "Bona Fide Treasure."

Jkayet- I got an import copy, they have no US label. If you want a copy, let me know.

I listened to it (the whole thing) last weekend at the Virgin Megastore in Chicago. I really wanted to buy it. I agree with Mr.Brau...this could be an "album of the year."

The problem (as Mr.B has stated), it is an import, and freaking expensive.

Zoney, I could make you a copy so you have something to listen to until they get a US label. A record this good needs to be shared.
