Puressence: ‘Don’t Forget To Remember’

Score

'Hailed as genius by their mates, ignored by everybody else'

Hailed as genius by their mates, ignored by everybody else, Manchester’s Puressence never understood why they didn’t follow Doves and Elbow to the higher reaches of furrowed-brow masculine rock. They had a point – their soaring anthemics had tunes of industrial chart strength. This fourth album is as good as they ever were, but it’s not really going to happen now, is it?
