Artist discography


With "Walk between worlds", Simple Minds has made their first Top 5 album in 20 years which is kinda strange since it´s their weakest album since 1998´s "Neapolis".
But perhaps, the new album will appeal more to the mainstream than the superb releases before this one. I mean, "Walk between worlds" is no way near the quality of "Big Music" (2014) or "Graffiti Soul" (2009).
I had my doubts about the new album when I first heard the single "Magic", it´s a good pop song but it belongs on a Robbie Williams record, not this Scottish band.
Frontman Jim Kerr and the band´s captain Charlie Burchill has managed to come up with a few lovely tunes like "Barrowland star", "Silent kiss" and the amazing "Summer".
But as an entire album, the weak spots are too many and I can´t help but feeling a bit disappointed. However, Simple Minds don´t know how to make bad records so it´s still worth the bucks you will spent on it. But I expect so much more from a band that normally will lift me off the ground and leave Earth for a while.
