Irish band Hal released their excellent eponymous debut album in 2005, and it's been sadly quiet since then. Featuring songs like "Play The Hits" and "Worry About The Wind" it almost felt like the true heirs to The Beatles' pop throne finally had emerged. Now, at last, seven years later, the band return with the album The Time The Hour. It's released in just a few days, on Monday, and includes the brilliant song "Be With You". It's a true joy to hear pop music this good! I'd say it's fab to have them back!
