Decent price for this - it's actually a couple of quid cheaper than the cheapest standard edition.

Book Of Lightning, the ninth album from The Waterboys, features most of the band's signature motifs: pseudo-mystical lyricism, Mike Scott's throaty vocals, electric fiddle and ethereal trumpet. What sets Book Of Lightning apart from previous projects is its slightly heavier rock sound, a consequence no doubt of recently recruiting innovative guitarist Leo Abrahams. That said, many of the songs on Book Of Lightning could easily slide onto earlier albums unnoticed, especially the electric-violin soaked, seven-minute "Everybody Takes a Tumble," and the gentle, acoustic "The Man With the Wind at His Heels." "Strange Arrangement" and "You in the Sky" are also redolent of older material, though "Nobody's Baby Anymore" and "It's Gonna Rain" drift along in a more unexpected bluesy vein. With its considered balance of moods and textures and enchanting abundance of lyrical prowess, Book Of Lightning can only enhance the reputation of this fabulous band.
