The Answer - Rise 10th Anniversary Edition album review

Album Review

Downpatrick blues-rockers’ first flight expanded.

Listening to The Answer’s debut ten years on, it remains one of the great mysteries of modern rock music why this band didn’t become instantly and inordinately huge on the basis of these strident, scintillating songs. The Irishmen have released some similarly sturdy albums since, of course, but Rise exudes a unique, wide-eyed magic that propels the thunderous and memorable likes of Under The Sky, Too Far Gone and the immaculate Come Follow Me along.
