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; it's every bit as good as they've ever been in the previous twenty-nine 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
