It shows the quality all the same that great Nile songs like St. Katherine's Day, Due North and Things we should Say were never on Nile albums.

There are more Blue Nile songs out there than whats on the albums??? i didnt know that,ive been a big fan for about 7 years now and i just presumed the four albums were it...cool!


My own favourite track is "Tinseltown In The Rain",favourite album is "Hats",the first two albums in particular are just absolutely gorgeous,buddy of mine loves them too and reckons the next two are the best! some of their music can take ages to get into i think,its so subtle it can be easily missed,but when you get it.....theres nothing like it


Off the new album "Wedding Party" and "After Dark" are my favourites but there isnt a bad track on it,if you like one you'll like them all i think

Check out 'Wish Me Well' and 'Regret'. Two great Nile songs that were B-sides. According to his Facebook page there's a tour in the offing too. Will be interesting to see if he has a full band and how he would blend the new stuff with old classics.

This is a beautiful record. Sublime. I've just booked a ticket for Liss Ard festival in August which he plays on the Sunday night. Should be wonderful.

That should be a good show.
Bob Mould also playing , doing the Copper Blue album. Toots & the Maytals and Lisa Hannigan as well.
Was there last year - lovely vibe and great venue.

Wow, wow, wow! What a sublime record! This is as delicate as a haiku. It is so controlled yet gorgeously emotional. His phrasing is sinatra-esque. Record of the year so far.

Didn't get the deluxe version myself as I thought price was very steep.....
Does anyone else think Cars in the Garden is a weak track? And does he actually say towards the end... The guards are in the garden now? I can no longer take the song seriously with the image of the boys in blue in the hedges......
Am a huge fan of TBN; fav album is Rooftops followed by Hats....
Fav song Let's Go Out Tonight.....

I don't think he means "gardai" when he says guards. That's just an Irish thing........

I know he didn't mean our guards.... I wasn't sure if he said cards or guards and as I wasn't prepared to shell out over 30€ for the deluxe version, I haven't been able to check the lyrics... The song is now ruined for me cos I only think of an Garda Síochána.....
