Review

One of the best things with music is the sudden surprise of a long time favorite band that shows they´re still to be reckoned with.
Simple Minds has no intentions of giving up just yet, Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill felt they needed to record one more modern classic and here it is!
Graffiti Soul takes the best from all 3 decades of the band with similarities to albums like New Gold Dream, Real Life and Black and White.
This album is a grower where these 9 tracks have been spinning over and over again in my home, I love Graffiti Soul just as much as their 80´s and 90´s albums.
Simple Minds has a unique sound and the new single "Rockets" will do just fine on any future Hits compilation with the band.
Other "hysteria" moments on this record are "Kiss & Fly", "Moscow underground" and "Blood type O".
Magnificent!
