Product Description

Written and recorded in part in Montmartre by Courteeners talismanic singer/songwriter Liam Fray last autumn, Concrete Love is the band's most rounded and satisfying record to date - its release coincides perfectly with a moment when they reach the peak of their live powers. The album sees the band working again with regular collaborator/producer Joe Cross (Hurts/Chloe Howl).

In the six years since they released their sharp and underrated debut St Jude - a pinpoint accurate portrayal of young life- the band have risen steadily with a quiet confidence. Each of their albums has gone Top 10 - St. Jude (no.4), Falcon (no.6), ANNA (no.6) - and the growth in their live shows has been exponential and astonishing. In 2013, Courteeners quickly sold out gig tickets outside of festival appearances in the UK - including Brixton Academy and Manchester Arena. In August, the band play as special guests of the Killers at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow before headlining the NME stage at Reading and Leeds Festivals.

5.0 out of 5 stars A slightly new sound and it works! 30 Aug 2014
By Doug
Format:Audio CD
Another great album by The Courteeners. Took a few days for it to grow on me and then I saw them live at the Liverpool O2 where they played a few of the songs. Really pleased with the album and I'd put it up with some of Liams best work. How Good It Was is one of my favourite songs The Courteeners have made!

An album to completely fall in love with, the band have managed to produce an album that is the 'right amount of different' and brilliant at the same. The band have evolved since their debut album, 'St Jude', and whilst there is no way I'll ever tire of hearing 'Not Nineteen Forever' and 'Acrylic', there must be a reason why this album has followed me everywhere since its release.

'Falcon' sounded different to Jude and 'Anna' showed a change again. 'Concrete Love' does exactly what you want from an album and it keeps you guessing. I've got my favourite tracks ('How Good It Was' and 'Small Bones'), my go to songs, then I change my mind and fall completely in love with another track ('Beautiful Head'). But, that's why I love the album: they're all my favourites.

For those lucky enough to have the deluxe version, the DVD recording of the Castlefield Bowl gig is amazing. Memories were made that night: Concrete Love will fit right in to the brilliant gigs (as it did at Liverpool O2 on album release day) and I'm certainly glad this album is on my playlist.

You've done it again, lads: here come the young men.

1.0 out of 5 stars dance 2 Oct 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What happened to the making massive anthem esq songs?
If your just finding this band do yourself a favour, buy St Jude and Falcon instead.
Shame as they have had such limited success and I don't see any of these album tracks making the grade.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth a Listen! 27 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD
Love the album- haven't listened to anything else in my car since I bought it. Slightly different sound to their previous albums, but still very much 'The Courteeners'. As with all albums some tracks are better than others- but those that are amazing make it well worth the buy!!

I was quite dubious when I saw the album artwork as it's not like them, but an excellent album! Quite different to their previous albums but still brilliant. Don't judge an album by the artwork.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new style that exceeds most bands. 22 Sep 2014
Format:Audio CD
It's up there with Falcon and St. Jude and exceeded Anna which would take some bloody good music. Possibly my favourite album of 2014. Didn't expect this sort of album but honestly if anyone could explain a perfect album, it would be this. I was getting bored of my other music and was looking for something new and fresh. Not just good but one of the best albums I would ever hear and Concrete Love has really hi the spot. Would recommend to anyone.
