Album Review:
The Joy Formidable - The Big Roar

On The Joy Formidable's newest album The Big Roar, we find the North Wales band perfecting the swirling guitar sounds of Curve, Failure, and Catherine Wheel from 20 years earlier.    The album's title is appropriate, as the tracks burst from what sounds like a compromised cage on the opening The Everchanging Spectrum of a Lie.    The mix is piled high with multiple layers of guitar, vocals and copious effects to keep The Big Roar interesting, pausing only briefly later in the album on Maruyama and Llaw = Wall before sinking its claws deeper into you on the departing songs Chapter 2 and The Greatest Light is the Greatest Shade.    All in all, a pleasant surprise that this formula is still fizzy after all these years.
