Drowned in Sound

In the eyes of this website, Frightened Rabbit left themselves scarce room for improvement with The Midnight Organ Fight. Literally, there was only one album better than it in DiS’ Albums of 2008 chart. Which leaves The Winter Of Mixed Drinks in a tricky position – either it turns out to be the best album of the year, or surely it’s failed?

You had to have seen it coming: Frightened Rabbit, three albums in, have refined their emotional, atmospheric songwriting style into something immeasurably huge, with eyes only for stadiums and perhaps, America.
