I bought this album on the strength of seeing BSP on BBC2's "Later..." program early in 2008 and from the word go I've enjoyed it every time I've played it, even now many months down the line.

This album prompted me to acquire the two previous BSP albums; and damn good they are as well!

I'm gonna keep this brief. I'm not going to try to convince you to buy this album by harping on about how much I love this track, that track etc - though "A Trip Out" is my personal standout; that opening riff ;) (kind of like church bells on 'leccy guitars). Magnifico.....hits the spot every time.

Getting back to the point (and brevity of this review) - suffice to say that some of BSP's music has been used by the Beeb on some of their telly stuff - I've heard "The Great Skua" on a number of occasions, most recently on Countryfile a few weeks back (the band even appeared on that program a good bit earlier in the year). I *think* it was used on the BBC2 series History Of The Guitar fairly recently as well (and the opening bars of "Remember Me", from one of the earlier BSP offerings, deffo was if I remember right)!

If the Beeb like it that much that's high enough recommendation for anyone, is it not ;) ?

I think im safe in saying that in the past, some people have been of the opinion that British Sea Power were a band to be seen live rather than heard on record (although The Decline is, in my opinion, a masterpiece, and Open Season, whilst not quite in the same league as The Decline, does have some magnificent moments), and I know how on a first listen the albums can be hard to grasp for some. However, on the first listen of Do You Like Rock Music? I was left with a thirst, an incredible thirst that in the past I have mainly encountered on seeing them play live. The desire that it created, meant I had to play Do You Like Rock Music? again immediately, in multiples, and have done countless times since. The songs work exquisitely on record. It is a very complete album, an album that takes you though different emotions and really does convey an energy and potency that leaves the listener both drained and energised simultaneously as the songs ebb and flow. It's a bit like `Lately' in that sense. A life, in itself.

Listeners to Do You Like Rock Music? should prepare to constantly fight with themselves over which is their favourite track, such is the strength and depth of the album. The album scoops you up, and carries you above its head like a Hero from start to finish. The more immediate Atom and Open The Door, though greatly diverse, show how the band can turn from base energy to classy 60's tinged pop (prepares for backlash). There are no real fillers on this album, and I find myself changing my mind daily, hourly even, over my current favourite. Canvey Island will educate some and remind all, that we are but a flicker away from the deep and dark consequences of frivolous irresponsible actions.

One of the most interesting alternative bands around. I say alternative because they are still something of a cult here rather than a household name but even though that cult following took this album to number ten in the album charts I do wish that this band and the music they make were much more the trend setters than they are. With references ranging from everything from academic novelists, world war history and natural phenomena to Big Daddy often in the space of single songs and an increasingly grand guitar driven sound inspired by the ROCK :0) of the natural world that Arcade Fire owes a debt to and not the other way round not forgetting to mention their unorthodox foliage and plastic animals strewn live acts and their willingness to take this act to more than just your usual underground dive (local libraries, the highest pub in Britain, the Natural History Museum, the BBC Countryfile show anyone) they lay claim to be one of if not the most substantial and down right life affirming bands of the last ten years.

Do You Like Rock Music is probably the album to start with as it includes probably their best song, the euphoric Waving Flags, and their most fully developed and pleasing production to that point. Basically all of what I have just said about them can be found squeezed into this rather ambitious record of half epic guitar rockers and half stirring ballads and curious instrumental prices.

By now you're all wallowing in the praise this album is getting...trust me it is already guaranteed to be on your 'top albums of 08' list.

It will leave you breathless, and gagging for more. You'll read a lot about the raw edge of Decline and the over produced package that is Open Season, but this like it's from a different band all together..don't get me wrong it is essentially BSP, but with a wall of sound that captures their live set, like nothing I've ever heard. Waving Flags and No Lucifer will get the plaudits due to their 'single' airplay, but don't wait around for Canvey Island, A Trip Out and Open The Door before purchasing this album (it's heading for top 10 this week, so intimacy will not prevail forever).

The band are touring the album, preparing for the first show in Belfast as I type, so don't dally, go see whilst you still can. British Sea Power have officially arrived!!!
