Noah And The Whale – Heart Of Nowhere

If much of this is catchy, however, you can’t help but miss the Noah And The Whale who could be emotionally devastating. Songs like All Through The Night, Lifetime and There Will Come A Time sound tailor-made to inspire pumping fists and mass sing-alongs and end up feeling like pastiches as a result. This isn’t helped by lyrics which lift heavily from the Springsteen book of growing up and getting out – One More Night (which sounds like it could come from Born In The USA) is even directed to a girl named Jennifer who got “married too young” and features a “kiss down by the river”. It may be a long time since Springsteen could call himself young but it’s difficult to understand why you wouldn’t just return to evergreen classics like Born To Run rather than listen to Noah And The Whale aping them, however well-executed these songs may be.
