Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

On their debut album No Love Lost, Walthamstow's The Rifles mark themselves out as contemporaries of The Ordinary Boys, The Libertines and Hard-Fi, laddish city slickers dashing through terse, tense urban anthems indebted to the London-accentuated songcraft of The Jam and The Specials. Frontman Joel Stoker, in particular, reminds one of a young Paul Weller, his barked vocals betraying a frayed, soulful emotion on the likes of 'Local Boy' and 'Hometown Blues'. He is something of a cad, as evinced by 'One Night Stand', a tale of a girl he values more for her availability than her intelligence: "I'm not being mean, in fact I'm really rather polite/All I'm trying to say is that you wouldn't catch her on Mastermind". 'Spend A Lifetime' is the cue to a more endearing side, a vulnerable acoustic number undercut by accordion and vocal harmonies subtly orchestrated by producer and sometime Lightning Seed Ian Broudie. No Love Lost works as an album – eleven tracks zip by with barely space to breathe – although few would deny that presently The Rifles still lack the sublime lyrical bent or intriguing self-mythology that saw The Libertines revitalise the genre. --Louis Pattison

Format: Audio CD
The Rifles are fundamentally mod rock revivalists, they perform a kind `a pseudo-sounding post-punk and wear their influences on their sleeves. These influences obviously and unarguably are the early Who with a little bit of Kinks and Jam thrown in for good measure along with all their immediateness and infectiousness there are like a breath of fresh air.

Not unlike the Ordinary Boys or The Enemy, The Rifles produce good, catchy pop songs. Short and to the point with a distinct "London Mod" sound. The vocals bear an uncanny resemblance to Paul Weller circa 1979, with a dash of Glen Tilbrook thrown in for good measure. Many of the songs are delivered with an old-fashioned pace and power which harks back to the early days of Buzzcocks-era power pop. This creates an album full of bitter-sweet songs that capture the loneliness and love, emptiness and angst, all the fears and hopes of everyday life. Unlike some of their contemporaries or predecessors there is not to much political emphases instead the songs come from a casual and impartial observer's point of view. Similar in many ways to The Purple Hearts or the Chords (remember them), Well if you don't check them out and you will see what I mean. This CD gave me cause to pull out all my old MOD records, whether by accident or design you can find a common ancestry with these chaps.

All the songs on No Love Lost are great, most of them show case a band that has infused a little extra jolt of pop hookiness into that Libertines/Arctic Monkeys sound that is so-dam irresistible. I guess its all about right place right time.

I read the reviews above and thought 'yeah, sounds good - I'll buy it.'

I did just that and listened to it, but not so keen on first couple of plays.

Sure, track number one, She's Got Standards, pricks your ears up straight away, but my interest waned after that.

So I put the album on my mp3 and put the CD away thinking it probably wouldn't get many more plays.

But a couple of days later I had to drive somewhere and I'd had enough of listening to whatever was playing, so I hooked up my mp3 and stuck on No Love Lost.

It sounded amazing - just like listening to an old favourite album, like sticking on Definitely Maybe without realising it.

That was nearly two weeks ago and I still can't stop listening to it.

I've now decided this is easily the best album I've bought for ages.

And When I'm Alone - track ten - gets at least three repeats whenever it comes on.

Buy it, but give it a chance - you won't regret it.

A stunning album with a wonderful blend of old skool mod values and mordern sounds with the heavy influence of Weller evident in both the music and lyrics.

Every track is a blinder and you will be oddly pulled to the lower key acoustic numbers by the pure lyrics.

A wonderful record.

I was a big Jam follower and felt Paul Weller deviated too far when going solo. Nothing ever filled that void til now - this album is so retro without being out of date if that makes sense. Just tried to get tickets for my local venue the Vic in Derby but already sold out.

If this isnt a one-off I expect a big future from these guys.

The only music that has made me want to listen in ten years - since jj72.

Fantastic!

Why the Rifles are not bigger is a mystery to me. This is thier first album (a third is due around September) and to my mind still their best so far. There sound is reminiscent of the Jam and the lyrics well thought out and put together I particular like Local Boy and Hometown Blues but all the songs are good with no fillers.
This import comes with 3 tracks not on the uk release Up Close, Down South and Holiday in the sun.
This being a import is, to be honest, eye wateringly expensive but as the original UK release is very difficult to come by and almost as expensive I would go for this if you have the money.
If you are unsure try their second album still excellent (but a lot cheaper) or better still see them live

After hearing the brilliant debut "Local Boy" last year, and then the cracking follow up "Repeated Offender", I knew these lads were onto something, and quickly they became established as one of my favourite bands!

Since hearing those two songs, I have been eagerly awaiting the release of their debut album, and finally after months of waiting, it's finally arrived!

Standout tracks are obviously "Local Boy" and Repeated Offender", but also add to that list new single "She's Got Standards", "Peace & Quiet" which was actually their real debut, "Robin Hood" and "When I'm Alone". The only song I couldn't really enjoy listening to was "Narrow Minded Social Club", which is a lot slower than the other powerful upbeat tracks, but at least it is at the end, so i don't have to skip through songs to miss it!

The Rifles are an excellent up and coming band, who have recieved good reviews on most of their releases, and have the vibe of The Jam and The Specials behind them. With distinguished vocals, and infectious choruses, it's easy listening, and entertaining in comparison to some of the dismal new bands we're being lumbered with.

My only disapointment about this album, is that it didn't feature title track "No Love Lost", which was a demo, but indeed a quality song. Still though this is an album, which if life was fair, would definately be included as an "album of the year".

"No Love Lost" is a top-notch record, that will provide the perfect antidote to those summer hangovers, and get you back on your feet.
