If you are even of thinking of buying this album, do it...don't think about it....buy it. This album is just full fantastic songs. From the opening track Comfort You, which sounds so U2 New Years Day era it's almost worth the court going to court to admit there influences, it's so familiar yet new at the same time.

The title track is just superb, and the chorus (including the infamous Whoa)will be stuck in your head for days. As you go through the album, you realise this group is no one trick pony.

Other stand out tracks include Breaking Up, which is so radio friendly, it's painful. Setting Sun has the sort of reverb guitar sound that did Keane no harm on 'Is It Any Wonder', and again is another single in the waiting.

If you deal is simplicity, then London Bombs should satisfy. This track starts with just a simple piano and acoustic guitar. From what i gathered, the track seems to be linked into the bombing in London and family trying to track a loved one...it's simple but a very effective song.

I truely hope in reading this you want to buy it...because to me the UK has missed out on what i consider to be an absolute classic of an album. If you are after the next big thing, it's here waiting to entertain..and don't get me going on there other album....

Alongside Wolfmother, Eskimo Joe are the current darlings of the Australian music press. The single Black Fingernails, Red Wine is consistently being voted as the best song release in 2006 and for good reason. It's a dark, moody, catchy and lyrically interesting song that will you will find humming a few days later without knowing what it is you're humming. The rest of the album continues in much the same vein with big sing-a-long choruses. Whether or not they'll make it big in the UK is uncertain, but this is certainly a record that gives them a fighting chance.

Forget Rolf, forget Waltzing Matilda, Eskimo Joe is Australian music you'll want to listen to. A great sound, mainstream pop/rock music in a similar way to Oasis. Good lyrics sung well with good music in the background. I bought it in Oz a month ago and haven't stopped listening to it.

Opens with the slightly Keaneish piano lead 'Comfort You' (virtually instrumental); 2nd track 'New York' is a beautiful example of their epic approach - melodic & powerful as Kav's voice suddenly shifts into another dimension; the title track 'Black Fingernails, Red Wine' owes more to INXS & Icehouse 80s rock style sounds; 4th track 'Breaking Up' is again melodic & powerful - a piano led epic piece (reminds of 80s Aussie band Choirboys); 'Setting Sun' maintains the pace then 'London Bombs' is very moving - with strings, acoustic guitars, reverb guitars, keyboards plus Kav's soulful distinctive voice creates this into an album highlight; 'Sarah' and 'This Is Pressure' continues matters; 'Beating Like A Drum' reminds of The Triffids & is a darker sound; 11th track 'Suicide Girl' is another highlight even if the subject matter is not so good. 12th & final number is the apt 'How Does It Feel?' with an epic end to the album even if slightly tragic. Highly recommended & for me just misses out on a 5 because of a slight lack of originality...but in any case really excellent.
