Arab Strap - Ten Years Of Years

Rating:8.8/10
Modern Music Review
'Double sadness,double bliss'
The band felt it had "run its course" by fall 2006, as an official announcement was made of their disbandment. They issued the farewell, quasi-greatest-hits compilation Ten Years of Tears that November and embarked on a final U.K. tour before calling it a day.Maybe it won't be an Arab Strap album in future but we should know how to content oneself with what we've got.So we've the "Ten Years of Tears" (2006) --a great compilation of Arab Strap.

Burning your soul -- of course it depends instrumental outfits,mostly tiny glitters,opaque lyrics.
Atmospheric sound all the time.Slow-fast contradictory song Turbulence (A radically altered version of the final track from The Red Thread by the sadly missed Bis) which is one of the best
Arab Strap work and it really fits its meaning a real irregular atmospheric motion.Indie pop
absorbed by violin tunes (the shy retirer).Live version of Glided,Blood are worth to listen
without fail.Rogue version of "if there's no hope for us" is the sexiest one electronic sizzles combines with real instruments and the result is totally amazing.A pure closing song "There Is No Ending"-Also 'It's a heartache nothing but a heartache' a Bonnie Tyler cover. These are my picks but i'm sure you'll find your own special souces in this limpid record.

"Ten Years of Tears" doesn't leave its core actually it's totally slowcore.
if you love to drink slowly then i know your rising band,it's Arab Strap.Lethal experience!
MM picks:Turbulence,the shy retirer,blood (live)
