FILTER Grade: 83%

Once again British indie-folksters Noah and the Whale have outdone themselves and created a beautiful, inspiring album that differs from their previous two releases while at the same time maintaining classic, familiar characteristics. Last Night on Earth is a mixture of upbeat pop tunes (“Tonight’s the Kind of Night,” “Give It All Back”), inspiring anthems (catchily enunciated single “L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N”), and tranquil, casual melodies (“Wild Thing,” “Old Joy”) that all tell the story of what may be glimpses of your own last night on Earth.
