NEW MODEL ARMY / Today is a Good Day (2009)

NMA gave us yet another top class album with hard hitting lyrics and heartfelt emotion attached that's every bit as good as they've ever been in the previous 29 years.  The bitter-sweet odes to life and things lost, the anti-capitalist anthems, the stories of brotherhood… they’re all here and they’re all conveyed with the same sense of conviction and passion.  Today Is a Good Day never once feels like treading old ground but it always sounds like NMA.

Songs of Note: Autumn; Disappeared
