Room Inside the World

Room Inside the World by Ought.

I liked Ought’s first album, but wondered if they weren’t painting themselves into a corner by hewing so close to Joy Division’s sound and feel. Making Interpol’s mistake all over again.

While there is still the occasional twinge of hookian bass and curtis-esque nasality on Room Inside the World, their sound is significantly opened up both musically and spiritually.

It’s definitely still sounding 80s/90s, but often a bit more like the Cure or The Smiths, than Joy Division.

Variety is a good thing.
