Back in time

20 November 2021

Band: BELLE & SEBASTIAN
Who: Veteran indie-pop daydreamers from Glasgow
led by singer-songwriter Stuart Murdoch
Active: Since 1996 / 10 studio LPs so far

Anniversary album: IF YOU’RE FEELING SINISTER
Released: 18 November 1996 – 25 years ago
It was their 2nd LP coming only 6 months after
their debut Tigermilk.

AllMusic said: “Belle & Sebastian’s second record, If You’re Feeling Sinister,
is, for all intents and purposes, really their first, since their debut in 1996 was
not heard outside of privileged inner circles… ‘Sinister’ plays like a great forgotten
album, couched in ’80s indie, ’90s attitude, and ’60s folk-pop. It’s beautifully out
of time, and even if other Belle & Sebastian albums sound like it, this is where
they achieved a sense of grace.”
Score: 5/5.
