3.0 out of 5 stars Unsophisticated But Worthwhile 1 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
Listening to Howl Howl Gaff Gaff, I was almost sure that I was listening to Tim Booth, the former lead singer of James, fronting for this Swedish five-piece. "Howl Howl Gaff Gaff" is the Shout Out Louds' international debut album, but is really a compilation of their earlier material. By the way, "gaff, gaff" is apparently the Russian equivalent of "woof, woof"... In terms of structure, perhaps the songs are chronologically arranged, but the first five of the album are mid-tempo, melancholic arrangements, before giving way then to more pop-sounding up-tempo tracks.

The album opens on an exasperated note, with Olenius wryly complaining on "The Comeback" that:

I'm kind of tired
Cause you wouldn't let me sleep last night.
I'm a reasonable man,
But I can't believe what's on your mind

This track has a good hook, as does "Oh Sweetheart", a song about a guy prepared to continue pursuing a relationship against the advice of his friends.

The album does become much more downbeat then with "A Track and a Train", which is about a lonely person seemingly about to end their life and "Go Sadness", the album's bleakest-sounding song. However, this melancholy is quickly ushered away with the pop tune "Please, Please, Please", with its xylophone-playing and the hope that the girl can be won back, despite a "so-and-so" relationship in the past.

Other tracks to listen out for are "Hurry Up, Lets Go", which sounds like The Strokes on speed and "Seagull", which is a rare demonstration of flute-playing in popular music. At eight-munutes in length, this folky song also proves a very mellow ending to the album.

Shout Out Louds play simple but attractive melodies. There are times when Olenius' voice can become tiresome, but this remains a band whose next full-scale effort remains watching out for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Influenced by others but not derivitive 26 Sep 2005
By MM
Format:Audio CD
In parts this album steals from The Strokes, there's an intro from The Kings of Leon and there's the cracked voice of Conner Oburst (Bright Eyes). Some odd sounds and even clapping on one of the tracks. Drums feature well on a couple of songs (Arcade Fire influence?). Despite all references to other artists it retains an individuality that makes it a class album. It's easy to get into and there's enough originality to make you want to keep playing it over and over.
This is one of 6 CDs bought on the same day and this is the one that gets all the air time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Swedish Indie Guitar Pop 4 Sep 2005
By P. Sharpe VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard The Comeback on Radio 1 and loved it although it really reminded me of Y by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
100 degrees also steals the main melody from Laughter by Josh Rouse. At times there's a feel of the Strokes at their most melodic.
So in summary pretty derivitive in places but yet still brilliant, catchy pop that you'll listen to again and again.
