Subtle magic

The last part of the Evertt True / Jerry Thackray's review of The End Of The Pier at Collapse Board:

Song of the day – 473: The Distractions
I have nothing from the album – called The End Of The Pier, due out in August – to play you.  Instead, you can find the album here.

This is an old song.  A favourite.  I can hear what you’re thinking, lonesome and lovelorn Collapse Board reader.  You’re thinking is the new album really as great as this?  No of course it fucking isn’t.  It is – as Au Pairs once sang – equal but different.  It resonates.  It bewitches.  It contains subtle magic, so subtle I can’t even begin to spot the glass.  The song that would be my Song of the Day is called ‘The Last Song’.  I like last songs.
