Biography

We Are Scientists shocked themselves and impressed many others with their 2005 debut With Love & Squalor, which sold over 150,000 copies in the UK on the strength of dancefloor standbys Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt; It's A Hit; and The Great Escape, as well as nine other songs that, to all appearances, people also liked. Twenty months of near-constant touring culminated in a sold out ... Read more in Amazon's We Are Scientists Store

As We Are Scientists are a definate favourite band of mine, I of course, bought this album the day it came out now about 2 months ago, and I can tell you it definetly didn't disappoint...this third ablum from the boys on a major record label and it certainly feels like the most complete and full album compared to With Love And Squalor and Brain Thrust Mastery. From here on in I'm gonna go track by track so bear with me...

1)Rules Don't Stop: The lead single from the album is a great opener and it sure is catchy. It's quick, energetic and full of bounce, a huge burst of fun. And remember "if theres no victim there's no crime"

2)I Don't Bite: Like Track 1, I Don't Bite is also a real catchy tune with a great chorus and some impressive vocals from lead singer Keith Murray.

3)Nice Guys: Quite possibly the most addictive track ever! Very quickly shot to the top spot on my most played list. Such a shame it only goes on for 2:53, but then again you'll hit repeat and won't care.

4)Jack and Ginger: I also think this track is great, and it marks the point where the tone starts to settle down a bit into a slow, funky rhythm. Another great chorus, this track feels a lot like some of thier earlier tracks on Brain Thrust Mastery like Chick Lit and Let's See It.

5)Pittsburgh: It took a couple of listens before this one starts to grow on you, it's a lot slower and laid back.

6)Ambition: Another ballad like Pittsburgh, it is also slowed right down. Personally, it's another favourite of mine as it reflects some of thier earlier work.

7)Break It Up: This is a very bouncy track with a dangerously catchy chorus. A lot like Tracks 1 and 3 as it is short, snappy and snazzy.

I have been a big fan of We Are Scientists since their incredible album With Love and Squalor (their second album, I have been told). Barbara is a toe-tapping head-bopping album, with a mixture of indie and eighties sound. In a way it is a mixture of their previous two albums, as Brain Thrust Mastery was more experimental.

We Are Scientists have mastered their sound and have a new member, in the form of ex-Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows (who does a bang up job. However, I'm not a drum expert). Fans will love this and not a bad starting album for newbies. There is not a bad track on the album, some slower than others. Rules Don't Stop is a great opening track. Nice Guys is a tune! Pittsburgh is a bit more of a ballad, which will be great to hear at festivals as the band will be at Reading this year. Check out Foreign Kicks (just get this album!).

In comparison with their previous albums, Barbara had a tough follow up and falls short of the awesomeness and indie anthems of With Love and Squalor. However, it could rival Brain Thrust Mastery. Overall good tunes from a cracking band. Check this out. They also provide in the album booklet, funny how to guides and anecdotes. Good times!

It's a very good album, more back to the roots of We Are Scientists. Which is always good. Would Recommend

WAS lost a few fans when they released the experimental Brain Thrust Mastery, as it was a hard album to get into, but rewarded the patient listener.
Barbara is te exact opposite, sumple 3 minute sings, catchy riffs, catchy lyrics, uplifting and fun.

It's not going to win any groundbreaking awards, however it's on par with WLAS.
