The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - Days Of Abandon [12", LP]

Their last album Belong was from 2011, so it was about time THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART released something new. While Belong was already very mellow and polished compared to the debut album, they have taken this another step further with DAYS OF ABANDON. Soothing and sweet indie pop tunes. Nothing wrong with that, but personally i would have liked some more songs like Until The Sun Explodes that are uptempo and at least just a little noisy. The sharp edges have gone completely and to be honest i'm not sure if i'll be buying a next album without listening first. I don't regret buying this album, but it certainly won't end up in my favourite albums 2014 - that's for sure.
