100 Broken Windows is the second full-length studio album by Scottish band Idlewild, released on 9 May 2000. The album showcased a significantly mellower, less distorted sound for Idlewild, with the songs being of a slower tempo than those on the punk influenced Hope Is Important. In 2008, vocalist Roddy Woomble stated that the album "seems to be the record many people make a connection with."[3]

The album was preceded by the single "Little Discourage" in September 1999 (charting at 24), then shortly before release "Actually It's Darkness" charted at number 23. After the album's release, the band enjoyed further hits with "These Wooden Ideas" (32) and "Roseability" (38).

The album was performed in full on 18 December 2008, with Woomble noting that he was "looking forward to playing it again."[3]



In December 2009, 100 Broken Windows ranked #1 in The Skinny's "Scottish Albums of the Decade" list.[4]

In an interview accompanying the accolade, vocalist Roddy Woomble noted:[4]

100 Broken Windows was very much, for me, us still getting somewhere, still finding our feet. I suppose that’s maybe the best era of any band, when they’ve gone beyond their debut but they haven’t quite got to the peak of their popularity yet; where they’re somewhere in between. It’s quite a pure area isn’t it?
