This album is brilliant. I came to this as a complete neutral (if anything with very mixed feelings) as I always thought "Same jeans" - their first single from a couple of albums back was a pale imitation of "Brimful of Asha". I have played and played and played this album. I love every song and love listening to it cranked up loud in the car. This was one of my albums of the year last year. I have since gone back and bought "Which Bitch" which is also cracking. I will try album no 1 next but all I can say is without any pretentious muso ramblings this album is brill :) BUY

The first memory of The View which comes back to my mind's eye
positions vocalist Kyle Falconer centre-stage on Jools' 'Later'
show sometime in 2007, singing 'Same Jeans' from their debut
album 'Hats Off To The Buskers' though a lank veil of hair and 3D
acne. His diction was refreshingly uncompromising. I sort-of
didn't really want to like them but they won me over with their
naivete and convincingly straight-forward way with a good song.

Four years on and three albums in and it seems to me that this fine
little band still knows how to deliver a barrel full of the right stuff!

'Bread and Circuses' is a winner. There are 13 tracks in the set and it
is more than possible to sing along to more than a few of them. It's
clearly had major-league moolah thrown at it and Youth's production gives
the band a deeper, fuller sound than we have come to know but this is
not a bad thing. The View's unique energy remains blissfully intact.

There are some cracking tunes here. Not least amongst them the
rollicking opening track 'Grace' (doubtless a storming live number!);
the lovely dancehall knees-up 'Girl', which had me grinning from ear
to ear; the pristine anthemic soulful perfection of 'Friend', with its
clever bitter-sweet lyrics and winning harmonies and the techicolour
sixties splendour of 'Best Lasts Forever'. Uplifting and inspiring!

Final track 'Witches' delivers a wonderfully daft hootennany ending!

The View have gone from strength to strength. Everywhichway 'Bread
and Circuses' ticks all the boxes. An album to savour and to treasure.

Highly Recommended.

A more mature sound, and still very good. Not every track is 10/10 material but even the weakest is solid enough. Highlights for me are 'Grace', 'Friend', 'Witches', 'Happy', 'Beautiful' and 'Tragic Magic'.

The View came as a really nice surprise to me. They're really something else. Guitars and clever lyrics. This album and "Cheeky For A Reason" are my favourite.

Saw them live in a little venue in Stockholm. They were great so I decided to buy the back catalogue and have not been disappointed.

The View's third album, released in 2011 is another great record from a great indie-rock band from Scotland. For those of you who went out and bought these lads' debut at the time, you'll notice that the music here is far more mature in the lyrics department, and more so than the excellent second. However, 'Bread and Circuses' is none the less fun or entertaining because of it. If you appreciate strong melodies and catchy, uplifting pop-rock songs from real musicians who know their craft, I can thoroughly recommend it. The guys haven't lost their wit either whilst writing their clever lyrics, despite them branching into new territories, less punk, more pop!

Personal favourite songs here include the perfect-for-chilling-out 'Tragic Magic', the insanely feel-good track 'Underneath the Lights', the brilliant 'Friend', and the cool, should-have-been hit single 'Grace', which was apparently written by View's frontman Kyle Falconer about the guitarist Pete Reilly's neighbours downstairs, and their noise complaints against him.

I love these guys, and I'm not ashamed to say it. Despite the fact that I still don't think that they receive the full credit and long-running chart success that they deserve, they do have a loyal following. With The View due release their fifth album later this year, these Scots aren't going anywhere!

For fans for the early Arctic Monkeys, The Enemy, The Courteeners and The Libertines.
