Product Description

Product Description

The Holloways exploded onto the scene in 2006 with the instant indie classics "Generator", "Two Left Feet" and "Dancefloor" taken from their debut album So This Is Great Britain?. The album brought the band critical acclaim and built on their already substantial fan base, selling over 40,000 copies in the UK alone. Fans flocked to sold-out shows up and down the country and they quickly established themselves as festival favourites, with storming sets at Glastonbury, Get Loaded in the Park and more.

The unfortunate demise of their old record label midway through recording their second album followed by a fire which destroyed their equipment, rehearsal space and spiritual home may have been enough to crush a lesser band but The Holloways now return with their new album No Smoke, No Mirrors, featuring "Jukebox Sunshine".

Absolutely loved every song. Honesty hand in hand with comedy, irony and hyperbole. Love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Humour and wit 28 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
I see why this sells out.It is a jolly good knees up.You feel like singing along to every track.Could not agree more with the sentiments as with their first album(could have updated from Blair to Brown but that may be old hat soon).Classic Pop as recommended by NME's accolade last year(2009).

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great 13 Dec 2009
By James Y
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Maybe I haven't yet listened enough; you know how sometimes it takes a while to get 'into' a new album. Although in this case I have tried to immerse myself in the album as I was such a huge fan of there first album - 'So this is Great Britain'. From the first listen of that album I was in love, catchy songs, funny and even thought provoking. This album doesn't seem to gel the same way, and the thoughts trying to be provoked seem squeezed out, rather than a natural flow. One song even mentions it might be better to spend less time online, which while a fine sentiment, the song not only tries to shove it down your thoat, but its not a very good song to boot, never really getting into the fun sprit of previous work! Maybe I'm being to critical, as I do think some of the songs are decent 'On the Bus' is a very catchy number, and almost propels the album to a fourth star, but for me it doesn't seem enough, and as a lot of bands find the difficult second album can make or break, this is more of a breaker than maker!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good album despite NME's claims... 23 Mar 2013
By puma - Published on Amazon.com
I miss the Holloways' infectious, well-crafted power pop. Much was made over the review this release got in the NME, where some moronic critic (can't remember who) wrote a one-sentence blast of it. Crappy journalism, crappy taste. "AAA" is an absolute classic and the album holds up well against their previous release (also good).
