This is The Decayist, a monthly podcast from This Decay. In each episode Chris Nee or Dave Musson nominates an album the other doesn’t know. We talk about it for a few minutes before passing a verdict.
In this episode, Chris introduces Dave to Cruel Melody, the first album by Black Light Burns, before asking the three questions that matter:
What’s your three-word review?
What’s your rating out of ten?
And will you be adding Cruel Melody to your record collection?
Cruel Melody came out in 2007.
