Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Edinburgh-based indie rockers the Broken Records' penchant for arena-sized anthems peppered with violin, cello, and accordion caused U.K. music behemoth NME to dub them the "Scottish Arcade Fire," a notion that holds more than a little weight upon digging into their bigger-than-life 2009 debut, UNTIL THE EARTH BEGINS TO PART. Like their American counterparts, the band sports an enigmatic front man (Jamie Sutherland) with a voice that is as unhinged as it is passionate (his throaty brogue casts a smoky Tom Waits/Bruce Springsteen-ish pallor to the whole affair), a love for all things orchestral, and an unhealthy obsession with semi-apocalyptic, social melodrama. But while the comparison is apt, the Broken Records have more in common with early, "Big Music" -era Waterboys. Like Mike Scott, Spencer Chamberlain doesn't wear his heart on his sleeve, he's barely holding on to it with his fingertips. He's looking to connect, and on stand-out cuts like "Nearly Home," " Thoughts on a Picture (In a Paper, January 2009)," and "Slow Parade," he lands a knockout blow, delivering on an early promise of greatness.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.86) - "This Scottish seven-piece pump out audaciously grandiose anthems and bleeding-heart ballads with a fervor that makes U2 seem shy."

Q (Magazine) (p.118) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[S]ongs such as 'Nearly Home' and 'Ghosts' have a stately grace....This is a better than promising start."
