New Model Army: High

New Model Army is one of the great bands of post-punk England – punk, gothic, metal and folk all rolled into one. 27 years on the go and 18 years on from the absolute classic “Thunder And Consolation”. Amazingly NMA are as fresh, powerful and original sounding today on “HIGH” as they were to my ear in 1989 when I picked up T&C (this is making me fee old). I read somewhere that “HIGH” was described as NMAs best release since T&C and while I can’t say for sure as T&C was the last NMA album I heard, “HIGH” is a bloody great follow-up.
