Biography

In the early January of last year, Charlie Fink set to work on Noah and the Whale's third album. Holed up in a synagogue in East London, he had little to begin with — a few fragments, a sketch for a 10-minute song that resembled Street Hassle, and a set of lyrics begun on a New Year's Day train from Wales to London. But what little there was seemed to suggest the beginnings of ... Read more in Amazon's Noah and the Whale Store

4.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Surprise... 7 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
From the first few notes, I knew this album was going to be really different from their last two. It's rather strange to hear electronics on a Noah and the Whale album. Definitely not what I expected...

Their first two albums were, lyrically, mainly about love and the terrible pain it causes. This album is about living life to the full, hope, and time passing.

"L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N." is definitely a good choice for the lead single; it's positive, upbeat, and very catchy. I hope it does well. "Wild Thing" and "The Line" are very beautiful ballads that I'm sure all old fans will approve of. "Waiting For My Chance To Come" definitely reminds of of The Cars...

I suspect that some fans might not know how to take this album. One of the appeals of Noah and the Whale's music was listening to it as a soundtrack to the pain you felt at the time (at least it was for me anyway). Not only has the sound of the music changed, but the lyrics have changed too, so this is definitely a departure, or a new beginning, for the band. That said, I think this album deserves a few listens. It's definitely a change, but you can still hear it's the same band. I'd be surprised if any old fans don't like this album. While I absolutely adored their first two albums, I couldn't listen to them as often as I could listen to some other music I listen to. They were so genuinely sad that they made me feel sad and depressed while I listened to them. I must say, it's nice to be able to listen to Noah and the Whale without feeling depressed.

While this album is definitely very different, the important things remain the same; and that's the fact that these songs, like all other Noah and the Whale songs, have heart. From Charlie's vocals, to the way the instruments are played, it's all full of beautiful, genuine, emotion, and that's what made us all love them in the first place...

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice 12 Jun 2011
Format:MP3 Download
Had only heard of them from " tonights the kind of night" but thought i would download the album and give them a listen. Not going to set the world on fire but well worth buying if you like the singles. Borders on being a bit " twee " but shouldn't upset anybody. Have played a few times and seems to be growing on me. Give them a go

5.0 out of 5 stars Fink it's a classic 21 Mar 2011
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Last Night On Earth has the vintage album structure of two five-song sides (the CD sleeve lists them this way) with a running time under 35 minutes. But is the content as classic as the form? It's superb. This is not the radical departure that some have suggested, but a natural progression: after the novelty bounce of `5 Years Time' and the punch-drunk heartbreak of The First Days of Spring, these are the songs of a man with experience, perspective, and grounded optimism. It is one of the most purely enjoyable and emotionally satisfying albums that I have heard for months. Charlie Fink continues to develop impressively as a songwriter, with just about every track a potential single, and his bandmates do them justice with inspired arrangements and musicality. If I had to pick standouts they would be `Give It All Back', `Waiting for My Chance to Come' and `The Line', but there isn't a dud here.

5.0 out of 5 stars A favourite album! 18 Dec 2013
By ReviewBlog51 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Noah and the Whale's third album 'Last Night on Earth' is my favourite of the three, I have yet to hear the recent fourth, but it's on my list of CDs to buy.

The album opens up with the positive and inspirational 'Life Is Life', with lyrics that have inspired and helped me through a very difficult year. The lead single 'L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.' is another feel-good song, which is the general tone of the album. Other tracks that are almost guaranteed to lift my mood include 'Give It All Back' and 'Waiting For My Chance To Come'.

If your looking for music that will encourage you to come to terms with life and to move forward, you've found it with 'Last Night on Earth'. Thanks guys!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the same but for all the right reasons 8 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
Yet again Charlie Fink and co have proved that Noah and the Whale posses an ability to be both dynamic and at the same time not alienate their fanbase by going off in a different direction. From the synth driven opener Life Is Life, through the heady optimism of Give It All Back and Waiting For My Chance To Come to the slow paced and haunting Old Joy, this album may have done away with the acoustic and string driven elements that defined it's two predecessors in favour of muted synths and backing choirs, but that doesn't detract from the fact that this is a brilliant collection of music.

3.0 out of 5 stars So is it just me then.... 10 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
So is it just me then that is finding something lacking to the depth of lyrics on their third album. I like bands that are capable of changing their sound so I was pleased with the addition to the synth but I'm on my 4th listen at the moment and am finding the lyrics a bit repetitive and shallow when compared to the imagination delivered in their first two albums. Maybe I will revisit this review in months to come and swallow my words....

3.0 out of 5 stars Arrived broken. 15 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well it arrived quick enough, but the case was broke and inner middle cd prongs were broken. Came on here to request another one and no problems. replacement took a little longer and the broken one is in the process of being sent back by a local shop for amazon orders - Great idea and no need to go to the post office.
