The album was produced using a vintage sound desk, adding more of a sentimental sound and it is actually the desk used to record Pavarotti’s classic, Nessun Dorma. Opening the album is “If”, a humble, poetic and incredibly romantic tale of life. When asked about the song, James Allan stated, “My idea for the song came during a phone call…with my good friend Alan McGee. He was talking to me about something quite difficult… and I said to him, ‘Alan, if we didn’t go through the bad stuff, we wouldn’t recognise the good stuff; it would be invisible to you.”
Overall, the latest album by Glasvegas is heartfelt, poignant and relatable. Essential tracks to listen to are definitely the title track, “If” and “Choices” It’s a perfect autumn album to get you through the end of the summer blues.
