From playing their first gig in 2005 to chart success in 2006 The Fratellis have come a long way in a short space of time. And that reason is Costello Music.

Costello Music has such an electic mix of upbeat songs that you will leaving you humming their tunes hours after you've listened to the album. Perhaps going as far back to the Seahorses' 1997 album Do It Yourself, has an album been so upbeat with rich guitar rifts and lyrics that have no need to try and be cool, with Fa la la's littering tracks, Jon, Barry and Mince have bucked the trend of neo punk bands and given us music straight from the gut.

Every track on this album is a feel good track. Unlike most other new artists The Fratellis have decided not to record an album in one genre, even though you'd have to stick it in the Indie section of the record store. Instead they have gone with music they like and what makes them feel good.

The Fratellis influences have been well noted including the Clash and Terrorvision, which you can spot in Everybody Knows You Cried Last Night, but there's definitely other influences you can spot, namely in the track Doginabag there's shades of John Squire's guitar rifts from The Stone Roses and some 70's glam rock ala T-Rex in the track Baby Fratelli.

The whole album doesn't flow in the traditional sense. Normally an albums' track order would be scrupulously planned, but there was no need for that on Costello Music, the whole album order really falls over itself, but in a good way, it just works.

If you want uncompromising music that will have all the music press raving about then buy The Artic Monkeys album. If you want sing-a-long at the top of your voice down the motorway feel good uplifting guitar rock then buy The Fratellis, Costello Music.

5 Stars.

I first heard them on Radio One - where they were being hyped to death - and thought "here we go latest indie flavour of the month". But that Chelsea Dagger song was pretty catchy you know...

So I though what the hey I'll check it out and Wow! This album is quite frankly superb.

Every song has a slightly different style from full on punk rock in the vein of the Clash, Undertones, Buzzcocks etc to whistful acoustic numbers, theres also dashes of blues and ska in there too; and all wrapped up with fistfuls of hooks that'll have you singing along before you know it. Each song has its own little narrative going and have some absolute gems of lyrics in there. Most indie albums I find, tend to have great singles but the albums are samey and uninspiring, but for The Fratellis nearly all of these songs would make great singles and although I haven't seen them, I think they could be a great live band too.

I love it and at the moment it's my most listened to album and easily in my top 3 of the year so far. Check it out.

This is not so much sing-along as roll your windows down, crank the volume and scream along at the top of your lungs, bouncing in your seat (preferably while someone else is driving)!!

There is not a weak track on the album. Chelsea Dagger is possibly the best, but the whole thing is sheer loud brilliance.

I really wasn't expecting this, and it's awesome to hear something fun and exciting amid all the copycat sounds out there. The Fratellis obviously share some sounds with other styles of music, but they play it well, and put enough of a twist on it that it's a pleasure to listen to. Check them out if you're tired of the same old thing most of the radio stations.

I bought this from amazon not long after it came out, and i intantly fell in love with it. The songs are all likeable with an upbeat rythm. For new material i would suggest buying the Henrietta single, for the song Cigarello and definately buy the Ole' Black and Blue eyes EP, for 3 songs which sound just as if they could have been on the album. Also an amazing band live - i saw them at Rock City in Nottingham and they were good humoured and it was a great night.

Close to 50, I am probably one of the oldest people to review this album. And while a previous reviewer has pointed out they have not done anything particularly new, they have done what they do particularly well. This is an amazing album, it has not been out of my car's cd player since I got the car last september, it has hardly been off my cd player at home, it is simply one of the best albums I have ever heard. I just have to say that anyone who does not find Costello Music one of the best albums they have heard does not appreciate music. It is one of those albums that has to be an essential part of the collection for anyone who claims to like music. Sorry, but I cannot praise Costello Music enough. The challenge to the Fratellis will be trying to follow it up. Good luck on that front, guys, you'll need it....

An absolutely brilliant album. I had to listen to it about 3 times to get used to it, and after that I just couldn't help singing along or humming in the street! It's really uplifting and fun music.
