Dodos’ Visiter was one of my favourite albums of 2008. Raw, a bit schizophrenic and thoroughly excellent. Its follow up Time To Die felt like a sanitised version of the band - not quite a misstep but missing some of the jagged edges that made Visiter such a welcome surprise.
Black Night brings back the rawness while keeping some of the better aspects of Time To Die - namely richer instrumentation.
Things are definitely good for the new album.
