Black Country, New Road - For the first time

as advertised: ‘for the first time’ is the pinnacle of british engineering. these six tracks encompass an odd type of flawlessness. this record really cannot be any better.

‘for the first time’ is mind-boggling, especially when isaac wood shouts the term “black country!” during the shockingly excellent outro to “science fair”.

the regular mixture of saxophone and violin with the guitar/bass/drums/keys combo creates a unique fusion. the striking music is often jaw-dropping. bc,nr can sometimes come across as sinister, which is appealing.

the album is full of countless irresistible hooks.

whenever black country, new road use the term “black country” is when the music becomes meta; it is the musical equivalent of breaking the fourth wall. those specific moments are a few of the many events on ‘for the first time’ that stick with the listener.
