EDITORS’ NOTES

Noah & the Whale’s languid follow-up may come with a compelling backstory—ostensibly taking inspiration from lead songwriter Charlie Fink’s break up with former collaborator Laura Marling—but that’s really only part of the tale. Whether it’s the trembly moonlit vulnerability of “Our Window” or the choir-backed skip of “Love of an Orchestra,” this is a concept album that carries a universal power beyond the gossipy facts of its conception. A lacerating and sweepingly beautiful tour through a broken heart.
