Constantines - Shine A Light

The 2003 release from the pride of Guelph, Ontario.

"Shine a Light is just as boisterous and energetic as their first album, but this time around, The Constantines are even bolder. That same, ferocious, two-guitar assault that would have fitted perfectly among the great Dischord releases of the early Nineties is still there, and the new album sounds great, with its piercing, yet warm tones and its loose feel; however, now, they up the musical ante considerably, showing some remarkable range at times. The band tries to bring something new to the table, incorporating cool little twists to that aggressive sound (background harmonies, keyboards, hints of a dub influence, and at times the post-punk soul of The Afghan Whigs) while still packing a monstrous punch. The Constantines manage to sound considerably more musically adventurous than the majority of their peers, as each track brims with ambition. " - Pop Matters
