The Good, The Bad and the Queen – Herculean (42)

December 22, 2009

More Albarn, but how can I not when his output has been this strong. This track makes me go all glassy-eyed, with the pastel keyboard hook and Tony Allen’s skittish drums making me float away. Paul Simonson proves yet again less can be more in the bass department, while the real surprise is the less-heralded member of the (technically unnamed) group, Simon Tong. His sparing guitar gives a dark tone to the track, as if hinting at oncoming storms just over the horizon.
