British Sea Power - Do You Like Rock Music? (2008)

It's an impressive album, full of epic songs that build slowly until the pounding drums kick in and then soar through ringing guitars and passionate vocals. How you feel about rock anthems will probably determine how much you enjoy this album. There are less of the playful oddities of the first two albums, but the move away from indie-aesthetic serves the songs well. "A Trip Out", "Waving Flags" and "Atom" stand out.
