Product Description

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.

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.

As Amazon seem to have cross posted all the reviews for the original album and the now deluxe version of this I should point out that this review is for the deluxe version, in case they do the same with the MP3 page. Being around now for about nine years this band always produce songs that are solid and reliable so you know that you are going to get something good. Indeed the original version of this entered the charts at an all time high for this group.

Although I know there are some out there who do not like this band I always enjoy them especially as they create a very full and rich sound that is guitar led. This is a big sound that is always worth listening to. There is nothing new here, the band have found their particular niche in the market and are not about to change it, and to be honest if people like what you are already doing there is no need to fix something that isn’t broken.

So what you have here is the original album that did so well, plus a selection of acoustic recordings of some of the tracks. To be honest if you already have the original you may not want this as well, but this does show that this band can keep it simple and are very effective at a more trimmed down sound. Next year this band will be one of the top acts at the Leeds Festival.

Great album with a number of really good, catchy songs. I wasn't too sure about it at first, but it grew on me after every listen, and now I absolutely love it!

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!
