Cursive - Mama, I'm Swollen

It starts with an incredibly visceral song ("In The Now"), which is followed by an affecting melody (the beginning of "From The Hips") that soon turns into a catchy anthem...and so on. The 6th album from this Nebraska band has that rare capacity to join the dots of disparate moods and elements, turning them into a solid and unified piece of work. Bonus to the incredible amount of addictive hooks, the discreet use of a brass section and the intelligent and touching lyrics. (7,5/10)
