Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

In the mood for a somewhat punk sounding album that you can turn your brain off to.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

Absolutely love this cover, it’s one of the reasons I gave the album a shot.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Yeah, it’s not like it’s an amazing album as a whole, but an easy one to put on and forget about.

Final Thoughts:

The Raincoats were introduced to me by Elijah Wood (not personally) I loved the album cover so I gave them a shot. Punk, noise rock, women lead vocals, these all describe The Raincoats perfectly. It’s a fun easy album to listen to. Not a whole lot new to the genre, nor is it hit after hit. But it’s a fun album that you can easily tune in and out of without finding yourself annoyed or overly impressed by.
