Top Albums 2006- #19

The Life Pursuit
Belle & Sebastian

It’s hard to really pin what makes this effort special over others. Is it really the fact they’ve grown tighter as band from touring? Probably so if you let them tell it. Maybe it’s the fact that they made an entire album of great songs, which is not always as easy as it sounds. As good as their back catalogue may be I’ve never listened any of their albums as much as this one. Most of Belle & Sebastian’s work seems like grown-up songs dressed in children’s clothing. On the surface, they sound sweet and unassuming. But one look at a lyric sheet might give a hint at what they’re really talking about. The Life Pursuit seems different though. Maybe they really did grow up.
