NEW MODEL ARMY / Impurity (1990)

Violins, spoken word by Joolz, electric and acoustic guitars belted out in a traditional folk rock style made this album stand out from the rest of the crap released the same year.  NMA never succumbed to trends and so their output never seems overly dated because it was never actually in style.
Much of this album is sure to make it onto a NMA best of, it’s that good; there's no filler.  The remaster improves the sound a lot so seek it if you can.  I find it really hard to describe their sound so best just listen to the links.

Songs of Note: Marrakesh; Innocence

5 something better, something pure out of 5
