Turin Brakes critically acclaimed debut album ‘The Optimist LP’ gets the re-issue treatment to celebrate its 20th Anniversary

The ground breaking long player, originally released in 2001 features classic tracks such as ‘Underdog (Save Me)’, ’The Door’ and ‘Feeling Oblivion’.

’The Optimist LP’ will be re-released on Dinked Edition Deluxe 2LP Splatter with bonus 7”, Deluxe 2LP & 2CD on Two-Piers Records, now with a Bonus album of ‘Demos’ from the original sessions and New Artwork. The Album has been out of print on Vinyl for many years

Press for The Optimist LP:

Drowned in Sound  – ‘The Optimist LP’ is a quite stunningly beautiful record.

NME – It’s one of those albums. Like ‘Parachutes’, for some, we suppose. But then listening to Coldplay instead of Turin Brakes is like the [I]Almost Famous[/I] generation choosing Don McLean over Tim Buckley. One’s comforting, familiar, pretty; the other strikes at your soul. And it’s a special kind of record which can encourage [I]and[/I] soundtrack such introspection, without losing its edge to indulgent miserabilism

Pitchfork – Olly Knights’ vocals mix Jeff Buckley moan and Marc Bolan hiss. The songs are simple, emotional, and earnest…., and they’re laden with Everly Brothers harmonies
