5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Album 10/10 6 Sep 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Absolutely love this album from start to finish. I'd never heard of the Pierces 6 months ago and then I heard Kings on Magic FM and have been hooked ever since. I agree to a point with another reviewer that this is very similar to the Album You and I but I happen to love that album, so more of the same is very welcome in my view.
Catherine and Alison are very clever songwriters as well as outstanding vocalists and each song soon becomes addictive. I have listened to the album only 3 times so far and I am already wanting to play it all the time. I loved the Pierces You and I album and it is still my favourite but I can see this one possibly taking first place in the near future. Stand put tracks for me are Believe in me, Kings and confidence in love. Can't wait for their next album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top drawer! 5 Sep 2014
By Coops
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this album! Someone else said it wasn't as good as 'You and I' and that was my initial reaction when I played for the first time. It took me three plays through for it to really hook me, and now I think it's equally as brilliant. These ladies are top drawer singer songwriters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Talent 9 Sep 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ignore the nay-sayers, this is a quality album with great vocals, well-written songs and solid performances. Was every track instantly loved? No, one or two of them required a second play before they got me hooked, but now I'm playing the whole album as often as I can. The only negative thing I would say is that after buying the standard cd I learned about the 16 track deluxe edition, but that's a marketing thing. Looking forward to seeing them live in Birmingham this month.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves to be massive 6 Sep 2014
By NJL1974
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Lovely. Well-written songs, beautifully sung. Not massively different from their previous stuff, but why should it be? Really hope that this is their long-overdue commercial breakthrough.

I saw The Pierces a few months back in Manchester and their sound with their harmony vocals over their backing band was brilliant. It could best be described as folk-rock-pop with an edge, and the overall sound was similar to the You and I album. They also did a great unaccompanied version of Simon and Garfunkel's 'Cathy's Song' which showed off what a great sound they can generate just from their two voices in harmony.
There's no doubting that the Pierces write great songs, but if you are expecting another 'You and I' this may disappoint a little. It is a very accomplished album but the production on most tracks to these ears is more synth-pop, similar to what you might expect on a Madonna album. For this reason I feel the vocal harmonies don't have the same impact as on the previous album, and this collection doesn't have the same musical edge with the instruments and vocal inflections getting lost a little in the big production. A similar thing happened a little with First Aid Kit's last album - when a band experiences success they can be sucked into doing larger and larger productions on their records, in the process losing something from the individual sound which brought them their following.
Obviously only my opinion, and there is not a bad song even on the expanded 16 track CD - just I would have preferred more of a folk rock feel to the proceedings. I personally love 'Monsters', and 'Flesh And Bone', possibly because they are closer to the tracks from the 'You and I' session. But there are admittedly great pop songs on here too, including 'The Devil Is a Lonely Night' and Chemical Reaction'. Their song writing talent and vocal ability alone rate 4 stars.

By Belle Noir TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Eagerly awaited, this album has disappointed me slightly. I purchased with confidence, without preview or review based upon owning - and absolutely loving - all the Pierces' previous albums.

For me, this album is missing the soulful .. kooky ... catchy (and often creepy!) songs which the regular listener will have come to expect from the Pierces - the mood feels slightly more 'strident' and upbeat but the songs are somewhat bland - perhaps a requirement of the record label?

The songs are pleasant enough to listen to, but are not 'stand-out' like previous albums. Don't expect the likes of 'Turn on Billie' or 'Lights On' with this. Check out soulmoxie's review, which explains a lot about the mood of this album. She is also absolutely correct that the one aspect which is always above reproach is the singing itself. Only siblings can sing in such perfectly-pitched harmony, and the Pierces sound even better live.

I wish that I had sampled the songs on this album before purchasing - because I feel that then I would may not have proceeded to purchase - at least not the entire album. Thirteen tales of love and revenge' remains for me far and away their best album.

'Try before you buy' is my best advice with this one. I am interested to see what other reviewers make of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 13 Sep 2014
Format:Audio CD
I really love it. Fans of their older work might be disappointed; it's till a far departure from their older work like 'The Pierces' and 'Thirteen Tales' but if you enjoyed 'You and I' there is more of the same here. Highlights include Elements, Kings and Monsters for me, but it's a very solid album overall. Catchy pop music but with a retro feel, created through their ethereal sound and nostalgic references to an older style of music whilst incorporating new sounds. Definitely give it a try if you loved their previous album!
