Product Description

Product Description

It's been a phenomenal year for Cowbridge's teenage four piece, The Automatic. Having wowed fans with a series of riotous gigs (including tours with Hard-Fi and The Ordinary Boys), they've emerged as one of the most exciting live acts around. Recently completing the NME tour, the general feeling is that they’ve come out on top of the 4 band bill! The band's current single "Monster" is rapidly turning into an anthem and is another example of the band's raucous disco-punk, boasting a chorus that's destines to be sung everywhere from playgrounds to football terraces.

BBC Review

You can hear the restless sound of youth as you listen to The Automatic's debut album, Not Accepted Anywhere. Their sharp guitar lines, analogue synths and simple shoutalong choruses combine wonderfully to produce three minute pop jewels.

Like all the best teenagers The Automatic are clearly not happy with the world they find around them. Opening song "That's What She Said" lays into drones who spend unhappy lives in the rat race, dreaming of weekends at punk gigs, while "You Shout You Shout" lambasts "so much trash on the radio," which keeps the zombies "dancing in the routine way". Killer single "Monster" takes a pot-shot at lagered-up townies in Ben Sherman shirts.

They might find it hard to believe, but it looks likely that this young Welsh band will find their album accepted everywhere. --Tom Smith

Having loved the brilliant singles Raoul and Monster, I felt obliged to purchase the album which i did. It took a few listens to get into but eventually i grew to view it as a solid album with some outstanding tracks!

The emerging theme from various other reviews is that the songs possess a similarity as the album goes on, which is something I have to agree with. Many of the songs are difficult to identify from each other.

However having just seen the band live and finding that they were a brilliant live band I feel that they have great potential for the future if incorporation of more variation is included on future releases.

Despite the songs sounding rather similar in general, I would still say get the album if you like Monster, Raoul and Recover and if possible, see them live!

when i first heard the automatic a few months back i thought this was going to be a fresh new sound...and it is, they are great, however the sound is the same throughout most of the tracks

wasn't too impressed with the album, maybe i set my hopes too high... obviously there are some great tracks on there, but the guy with the screechy voice is the same through out the album, and it gets quite irritating...

if a fan, get it...if just investigating new bands, download a few tracks first to see if you like them...

Ok I accept the criticism of the other reviewers here - there is way too much repetition in this album and certainly a couple of tracks at least that seem largely unneccessary. I still love it though. The 5 star mark is based purely on my own enjoyment of the record. About half the songs are, in my opinion, genuinely very good. Even the weaker ones are rescued by the sharp sound and the band's deranged enthusiasm (although keyboardist Pennie has worryingly begun expressing unhappiness with the material).

Opening track 'That's what she said' is a dance-punk call to arms while 'Recover' reveals a thrilling glimpse of The Automatic's hardcore background. The stand out track for me is 'By my side' which sounds a bit like Refused doing the Doctor Who theme - this is actually a very good thing! Oh, and there's this song called 'Monster' but you might have heard that already.

Despite being flavour of the month on Radio 1, the Automatic are quite good :) and this is a punchy little debut. Take Franz, Futureheads, Blink 182, Maximo, put your local village idiot shouting the backing vocals in a bizarre off key way, and you have the sound. The lyrics are pretty standard 'modern working life is rubbish' stuff - not as clever as the Artics but not bad.

The singles (Recover, Raoul, Monster) are top notch bits of hi energy pop and make for a strong start to the album. There aren't any real diversions from this theme as you go through, so it wears a little thin by the end but not enough to grate. The album sleeve has a nice little graphic strip too.

They need to think up a plan B for the second album but this will do nicely for the first. Recommended.

Not a weak track on this album and every track is up tempo. It gets better with every listen. If you like you indie rock with added synths, great main vocals and addictive shouty backing vocals then this my friends is perfect for you. I've been watching these guys for the past year or so from the first massively overlooked single 'Recover', past the midly noticed brilliantly catchy 'Raoul' to the fantastic summer anthem 'Monster'that has caught the ears of everyone and climbed from number 23 in the charts from downloads only to number 4 where its been for the last couple of weeks.

All I can see is...get your butts over the hill, down the road and into a shop quickly to buy this as its selling fast!!!!

Outstanding. The Automatic are one of the most exctiting band i have ever seen live, and i've seen quite a few. Their album doesn't dissapoint either. Just to give you some idea of their sound, on single 'Raoul' they mix disco drums, heavy guitars, funky guitars, keyboards, a funky bass line, shouting and melodic vocals to create a sound that you can both mosh and dance to (something quite unique i think you will agree)Most of the songs on the album follow this style although that's not to say that their songs all sound the same, they vary in levels of heaviness. The recent hit single 'monster' is probably the album's most poptastic moment. Compared to the Arctic monkeys (probably the biggest indie band around), the automatic's lyrics may not be as funny or as clever but the music itself packs more energy than a crate of lucazade. Also while on the surface the single 'monster' may appear to be about well scary monsters, i think you can look for a deeper meaning about thuggish young men looking for fights after nights out.

Trust me when i say you won't be able to sit still listening to this album, you'll probably be running around the room diving off furniture. So who will enjoy this music? It's probably for the younger generation perhaps 15-25. If you like bands like the subways, fall out boy, panic at the disco, even blink 182 then the chances are you will like the automatic even better. On track 11 'By my side', singer Rob asks 'Is this the end of the world?'. My reply would be definitely not with you guys around the fun is just about to begin.
