Glasvegas

GlasvegasI think a haircut is in order

I recently picked up the much hyped album from Glasvegas at a Circuit City free-for-all (go before it's all gone!!!). If you haven't heard of Glasvegas, they are what can be described as post-emo, if you will. This new breed of emo for adults combines the traditional desperately earnest lyrics on top of the highbrow intellect of richly woven music.
Admittedly I'm a sucker for warbling woe sung in a Scottish accent, but what intrigued me upon listening to the album more closely are all the nursery rhyme allusions. They poke at our insecurities and shake us back to our inner-child core by hauntingly throwing in a line from "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" or "You Are My Sunshine". No doubt these songs, elicit memories of one's youth when things were undoubtedly much more carefree. Glasvegas has effectively capitalized on nostalgia.
