Slower Burner but Fab
I really, really loved 'Hopes and Fears' and on initial listening of 'Under the Iron Sea' I felt a little underwhelmed. However, this is one of those albums that grows and grows on you the more you listen to it. You pick up on subtleties in the music that you miss the first time. Now I listen to the album almost all the time and love it to bits (I had the same reach to Radioheads 'Ok Computer compared to the 'The Bends')
Favourites on the album are 'Bad Dream' 'Try Again' 'Crystal Ball'
Thoroughly recommend this album to any one who liked 'Hopes and Fears'
