12. Lights Of The City ( 2.22 ) - Crumb - CD Evenings & Weekends cdbaby.com/crumb
Dublin trio Crumb sound like several other bands, but the one band whose influence is all over this debut is REM. The jangly guitars and vocal harmonies here recall the American band circa 1984-86. And, lest there be any confusion, this is no bad thing. With Stipe & Co looking like they've exited stage left in creative terms, they could do worse than to cheer themselves up and listen to this to see what their influence has meant.
There are quite a few highlights here – brisk and bright opener 'Lights of the City', the plaintive 'Wrecked Or', the gloriously addictive 'For the Leaving Of...' – but the album is strongest as a whole. There is no grandstanding, just well-crafted songs that complement each other astutely.
