The Shining – Young Again

Single Review by Mark Bayross

YOUNG AGAIN is the third single from The Shining and, given that Simon Jones and Simon Tong used to be in The Verve, its similarity to the guys’ former band should come as little surprise.

Still, they make an admirable effort of breaking out of the acoustic Ashcroft-isms of the first half of the song, as it builds up to an impressive crescendo of drums, guitars and impassioned vocals.

Hopefully, their forthcoming debut album TRUE SKIES should give them the scope to fully develop their own sound, but this’ll do fine for a preview.
