4.0 out of 5 stars What Took You So Long?! 26 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
The Courteeners were certainly at the tail end of the libertines wave with debut St. Jude - an attempt to make jangling indie pop stadium sized, with mixed success at best. Songs such as 'Fallowfield Hillbilly' seem to be in the distant past now though, as Liam Fray and company have tightened up and with a little help from Ed Buller have produced an album of truly gargantuan propotions. Strings, Delay Pedals and Melancholy are all plentiful, and throughout there are obvious comparisons to U2, Coldplay or fellow mancunians Elbow. Fray's voice in particular is much better and compliments the overall sound, which clearly has a more practiced band at the heart.

1) The Opener: A lyrically unsubtle song about Manchester, with a melody as good as any on St. Jude. Might have expected a larger song for, well, an opener, but that it isn't shows how the band have progressed. 7/10

2) Take Over The World: A string laden Anthemic tune which unfortunately, despite the skyscraper-sized guitars, seems just the wrong side of a Take That tribute, or at best Embrace. Still, even casual fans will no doubt adore this live (if indeed casual Courteeners fans exist). 5/10

3) Cross My Heart and Hope to Fly: Initially a free download that marked a very different direction for Falcon, and a darker side that was definitely exciting to hear. Gloomy 'woah-oh's and staccato piano build up an atmosphere, but the song itself is probably one of the weaker on the album. 6/10

4) You Overdid It Doll: The title's daft, but definitely worthy of being lead single off the album. Sounds like New Order's bigger, angrier brother, adding some much needed vigour to all the thoughtfulness in the album. 9/10

5) Lullaby: This perhaps personifies the new look Courteeners.

5.0 out of 5 stars It took a while, but I love it now! 9 May 2011
By Steven
Format:Audio CD
I got into The Courteeners in a weird way - through playing PES2010 - and bought St Jude, loving it straight away. I soon followed up and bought Falcon. Unlike the first album it took more listens to get into the album but eventually, one song at a time, they won me over. There are many songs I love but more than any Cameo Brooch is an excellent four minutes of British music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff, not The Smiths/Libertines 24 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
Great album - as mentioned by a lot of people, musically comparable to later Doves/earlier Elbow (the gravelly voice of the singer is a joy), lyrically resembling the 1st 2 Arctic Monkeys albums (listen to the chorus of "The Opener" - genius). 1st album St Jude is great admittedly and - if you enjoy plinky plonky Smiths/Libertines (albeit more skilfully played than Messrs Barat and Docherty) guitar work - choose that. However, if your after more of the thick, layered, driving guitars on St Jude single "Not Nineteen Forever", buy this - it wont disappoint.

Format:Audio CD
On Falcon, their second album, The Courteeners progress from the angry yet melodic Libertines-esque racket of their debut record. There are pianos, giant synth swooshes and layered vocals...the album is reminiscient of Pulp at times, what with the plaintive baritone of Liam Fray married to an expansive, synth-layered sound: on scanning the album notes it is no surprise therefore that Ed Buller, producer of Pulp's seedy disco nineties classic album A Different Class is on production duties here. Cameo Brooch and Last of the Ladies push the Courteeners into a lusher, more sensual songwriter direction: Good Times Are Calling is sensational, the standout track of the album, a Doves-esque, staccato medlodic joy. Sycophant and the closer, Will It Be This Way Forever? hark back to the nervy, guitar bile and spittle of the debut album. You Overdid It Doll will just about get away with its similarity to Franz Ferdinand's Take Me Out to become an `indie dancefloor classic' and Cross My Heart And Hope To Fly is Elbow with a cocky swagger. The Courteeners have evolved their sound on this second album and Falcon is hugely satisfying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Falcon Brilliant! 3 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
The latest from The Courteeners is a brilliant album, equally as good, if not better than their debut, St. Jude. There are more acoustic-type songs than rockers on this album, but that isn't a problem, especially since the acoustic sngs included here are superb, lyrically and melodically. Particular highlights for me include "Cameo Broach" and "The Rest Of the World Has Gone Home". There are some rockers, such as "You Overdid It Doll" (which should have easily got to number 1!!) and "Sycophant" which is also brilliant. "Will It Be This Way Forever?", the albums closing track could be the new James Bond theme tune!!

Highly recommended for Courteeners fans and for fans of rock and Britpop in the vein of Oasis, Pulp, Blur etc.

It's an ok album in my opinion but a bit bland, the songs don't really stand out which is a shame as I loved their first album and still listen to it today

It was bought as a present for a mate and he loved it, as did his wife and two teenage children. Apparently a family favourite!
