We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed (10th Anniversary)
Remastered version. Without changing the formula too much from Hold On Now, Youngster This record certainly showed Los Campesinos! were evolving and growing as a band. Ways to Make it Through the Wall and Miserabilia are the sounds of a band that has massively grown in confidence. The title track along with You'll Need Those Fingers For Crossing are instantly loveable and classic LC! The most pleasing track to find on here and further evidence of progression of their sound is Heart Swells / Pacific Daylight Time a song in two parts much like bands such as Neutral Milk Hotel, Super Furries and Modest Mouse among others have toyed with, it's a beautiful song with heartfelt lyrics, 'I wish that you would kiss me 'til the point of paralysis' sings Gareth, and musically it's different to anything they've done before.
