Album Of The Year Countdown: Number 6

Touché Amoré's second album ‘Parting The Sea Between Brightness And Me’ was a stunner.

Welcome to the most exhausting album of 2011.

Each two-minute burst of feral emotion demolished comfort and threw us straight to the centre of vocalist Jeremy Bolm’s cathartic storm; weather-damaged, soaked and worn, we’re abruptly jettisoned at the end of each song for a moment of respite before the next tune dragged us back under.

Some bands take a lifetime to convey a fraction of what Touché Amoré packed into 22 minutes of wrought and raw musical dialogue. Astonishing.


The Rock Sound Top 10 so far...
07. Spycatcher - Honesty
08. Bon Iver - Bon Iver
09. Twin Atlantic - Free
10. Manchester Orchestra - Simple Math
