Album of the Week

While more of a rock/guitar driven sound that I usually don’t enjoy, Catherine Wheel’s Crank finds the balance between rock but with a very pleasant sound.

As a Smiths and MBV fan, this album is very similar but brings more of a hard rock sound to it. The heavy guitar melodies really stand out for the better and really compliment Dickinsons raw but smooth voice. This creates a very atmospheric shoegaze like sound that is unique.

The lyrics are also very emotional and match the albums sound well. Songs Crank, Strange Fruit, and The Nude are my favorites and really perfect what I feel like the album was trying to accomplish. This album is really beautiful in all musical aspects and I highly recommend it!
