Track 1 is crap. There, it's said. Now I'll review the rest of the album.
The rest of this debut album is a very strong affair, with some very solid, disciplined, impressive indie rock tracks. The vocals are often breathy, but away from the mumbling of Alfie and co. The guitars throughout are majestic, with some uplifting riffs and impressive technique.
Venetial Blinds is the stand out track on first listen - the lyrics might not be brilliant but the music is. Played almost as a duet between singer and lead guitar, it seems to suggest it's telling a story, though we're left guessing as to what that story is. With a passing nod to Dinosaur Jr we're on to Hanging Around, another solid song which you might find yourself humming after a while. The songs are all very good quality, but the only whinge so far is a lack of standout tracks - there's nothing that will stick too long in the memory.
This continues as it goes through the second half of the album, Simple Fact is a more downbeat affair which doesn't bore, but is merely good. Meanest Sound, with a bit more bite hints at better things but ends up a consistent quality throughout. Consistency might sound bad, but 10 very good songs are better than a patchy affair.
And just to relieve any further doubt, the very last track, Upside Down, really does suggest this band can go far, with a raging emotional stadium-rock-tinged closer which stirs the soul and tugs at the heartstrings. This single song is one of the best album closers in a long time.
So Future Kings Of Spain. Excellent? Occasionally. Very Good? Almost Always. Crap? Track 1.

I came across the 'Future Kings Of Spain' purely by chance. I found myself singing track 3 'Venetian Blinds' on and off for a few days after it was played on SKY Sports Soccer AM. I had noted the bands name and attempted to locate an album. Obviously I had no luck because this was a month or two prior to the release of the album. I did however lay my hands on a promotional copy and can say I’m lucking forward to getting an official copy. 'Face I Know' is a powerful rock song with good guitar play and vocals with occasionally screeching not to dissimilar to 'The Vines' hit 'Get Free'. 'Hanging Around' is features high tempo guitars and drumming and is a very upbeat song with good vocals. 'Simple fact' is a slow paced song and is quite mellow similar to 'Coldplay' but does pick up into a more conventional rock song with good work on the piano towards the end. 'Your Starlight' is a quick song and the guitar work reminds me of early 'Feeder' work. This album shows of a variety of styles, which are all performed successfully. I fell in love with 'Venetian Blinds' the first time I heard it's my favourite song by the 'Future Kings Of Spain' although probably not the best. This is a good first album and shows that the lead singer is very competent in a variety of styles and the music is of a good standard throughout.

There's no doubt: FKOS will catch your attention and hold it. The emotions expressed on this CD range from raw, pulsing, and determined to honest and even imploring. The first song definitely grabs ahold of your ear and FKOS isn't about to let you go until they turn you "Upside Down" on Track 11. My personal fave has to be "Venetian Blinds", Track 3. Musically, their styles remind me a little of The Cure & Smashing Pumpkins. It will be interesting to see where FKOS decides to go with their next album, because it's clear that there's a lot of talent in the boys of FKOS. (Thanks Rob for telling me about them!) :D

This is a very promising debut album from the future kings of spain. Nothing groundbreaking, a bit like the strokes, who I'm sure inspired them. The first track is the only poor one in my opinion, in it the lead singer tries to scream and it just doesn't sound good, especially when you hear the other songs and realise how good his voice really is. So if you want a solid indie rock album, this is well worth a listen

my favourite irish band, i really hope they can produce the good a third time because they havent got famous yet. a publishing deal gone wrong really broke their momentedum for their second album(was on the shelf done for 2 years! disgrace...)

buy it, you wont regret it. even the harshest critics here are giving it 3 out of 5.
