I would love to give this album 5 stars. The Good Shoes are one of my favourite bands. However, the second album is not as immediately catchy as the first. Easy Sing a long choruses have been replaced with a more complicated sound, which takes a few more listenings to appreciate. The Good Shoes still have the punchy pop driven guitar songs,along with wry Ironic lyrics from the first album. However, their second album (shorter than the first, around 30 mins) is more difficult to instantly appreciate. Without getting to anal and listing all tracks highs/lows etc. If you have first album and are thinking about buying this, I would say give it a go. Its growing on me all the time and next week I will probally give it 5***************

Where 'Think Before You Speak' was a study in laissez-faire arrogance and relationship insouciance, 'No Hope No Future's' humbler themes of longing and relative heartache necessarily require a darker tone. Nonetheless, the hooks, whilst fewer and farther between, still can't help but jostle their way to the forefront. And so, whilst clumsily politicised rumblers like `I Know' are missteps, tracks like `The Way My Heart Beats' and `City by the Sea' are up there with the best from their excellent debut. Meanwhile, `Do You Remember' shows off hitherto unseen guitar-smarts, with licks wound tight enough to befit obvious musical forebears XTC.

Choice Cuts: `The Way My Heart Beats', `City by the Sea', `Do You Remember'

I am glad I listened to this album a couple of weeks before deciding to post a review.No Hope No Future doesn't have the same immediate appeal as Good Shoes - Think Before You Speak. The songs have a darker feel, both musically and lyrically. Rhys Jones has developed into something of an indie rock stylist on this outing and the band is really focused. My only gripe is that the album feels a little short at just over thirty minutes.

Definitely worth the purchase & would recommend. It doesn't have the consistency of their 1st album & takes more listens to get into but some of the standout tracks are as good if not better than anything on the 1st. "The Way My Heart Beats", "Everything You Do", "Then She Walks Away" & "City By the Sea" are for me the best tracks, all bordering on amazing. The album also benefits from not being as long as the 1st. BUY IT!!
