The Courage of Others is the third studio album by American folk rock band Midlake. It was released on February 1, 2010, on Bella Union Records. The album sleeve pays homage to Andrei Rublev, a 1966 film by Russian writer and director Andrei Tarkovsky. In 2014, drownedinsound. com called the album "a masterclass in crafted repose – repeated listens and time spent in its company yielding considerable reward".

The Courage Of Others is a music studio album recording by MIDLAKE (Prog Folk/Progressive Rock) released in 2010 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. MIDLAKE rests on the periphery of the genre of our affection, again neither here nor there, because their latest album occupies the molten core at all that was best in music during the early 70s, preserved with integrity, and shuttled to the present day while rendering any "best before" dates superfluous.

Album Name The Courage Of Others. Data wpisu Luty 2010. 10. The Courage of Others.

Existing outside the plane of trends and even time, Midlake has once again conjured a novel world, but one that seems to have existed forever. Looms of intricately textured keyboards, flute, guitars and voice are woven into broad cloaks of sound, all riding the wave of songwriter Tim Smith s sweeping vocals. It is an album in the classic sense, meant to be digested in a single sitting and given the opportunity to become more than its constituent parts. Here the band blends early Brit folk influences with thick-throated guitars to propel themselves toward new sounds and emotions. Creeping and epic, The Courage of Others is positioned to be the latest instalment in the important and ever evolving discography of one of modern music’s most unique torchbearers.
