5.0 out of 5 stars little man tate deliver a brilliant album 13 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
well how good is the new album by Sheffield Indie band Little Man Tate? well the answer is brilliant - 13 tracks of catchy, big sing a long anthems and ace tunes. Stand out Track "She Looked Like Audrey Hepburn" is easily the band's best song to date and it looks like these boys will be around for a long while yet. A winner!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Shot at a second album 18 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
Well, It's hardly perfect, but it's a very good follow up album.

From the offset, Money Wheel lures you into thinking this is going to be an album oh so similar to the first one, About What You Know. Followed by What your Boyfriend Said, the tempo keeps upbeat, with typical LMT DNA running right through it.

It's not until track 3 that things slow down, and this goes from being a good album, to a very good album. "She Looks Like Audrey Hepburn" is a much slower song by the band, but is done magnificently. The typical LMT continues afterwards with Shot at Politics & Hey Little Sweetie.

Things slow down again with Joined by an iPod, which has gained many fans already after they made it a free download on MySpace.

Unfortunately, what prevents this from being a 5 star album is just 3 songs, and 2 of them are numbers 7 & 8. Face on a Wall & A Little Heart. Good songs, but not quite up to the standards of the rest of the album.

Time for Anything picks the pace back up however, and the last 2 songs are quickly forgotten, before 2 of the finest tracks on the album. Back of the Pub Quiz, and London Skies, very different, but equally as effective.

The final criticism is the last track, Shoulder to Sigh on, it's like nothing LMT have done before and unfortunately is something they should perhaps not do again. A totally different sound, and it's a shame it's the last song you have to hear on the CD, when you will be begging for a real anthem of an album closer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much Overlooked 11 July 2013
By Keith M TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
One of Sheffield's finest, Little Man Tate, were a short-lived, well, pop group, whose straight-ahead style in the late noughties (they split in 2009), sadly, did not bring them the recognition they deserved, despite some radio airplay (promoted by the likes of Steve Lamacq) and similarities with fellow Yorkshire band, The Arctic Monkeys. For me, along with London band, Dogs, who similarly made two outstanding albums in the same period, though in a more (revivalist-)punk style, Little Man Tate represent one of my favourite (lost) bands of the last decade.

This 2008 album, following the previous year's About What You Know, is another fine collection of songs, full of LMT's trademark mix of guitar hooks and catchy choruses, and all jointly composed by band singer/guitarist Jon Windle and guitarist Edward 'Maz' Marriott. Although, for me, whilst not being quite as strong a song collection as the debut album, there is hardly a duff song here and NWHCE still provides many moments of intoxicatingly vibrant listening. Windle is on his favourite subject of girls and lost love on the infectious pop of What Your Boyfriend Said, A Little Heart, Time For Anything and The Last Hurrah, and, similarly, on the cross-over of music and romance on the sublime melody of Joined By An ipod. The ballad-like Shoulder To Sigh On finds him at his most reflective, whilst album opener Money Wheel bemoans a band's treadmill-like existence.

My favourite songs here, though, are the marvellously infectious Shot At Politics, wherein our hero bemoans his lesser station in life, and the take on female stardom in She Looked Like Audrey Hepburn, with its great lyric, 'He thought she was looking deep into his eyes, right into his very soul, but she was just checking her hair in the reflection of his sunglasses'.

5.0 out of 5 stars worth the wait 22 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
I loved the first album and was both eager to hear the new offering an concerned it might be a disapointment. Happy to say I love it and so do those friends who have heard it. It still has the catchy music the great hooks and the humour the characterised "its about what you know" but they have added to this more layered harmonies and the writing is alot more mature. Certainly "Audrey Hepburn" is a stand out track,and "joined by an ipod" is funny, sad and increadibly well observed. Its more shaded and more adult for example in "what your boyfriend said" but still full of the exuberence that makes them a terrific live band.

Finally I don't think there is a dud track- I enjoyed the atypical sound of "Shoulder to Sigh on" the production gives it a hollow sound which fits the song and the tempo is a tone are different from LMT's usual style, I have no problem with variety. They are a band who keep growing and in my opinion they get better and better.
